To date, the only way to listen to Apple Music songs & playlists was through iTunes on PC and via Apple Music app for Android & iOS for smartphones.
Previously Apple Music Tools let users stream a sample of the song on the web, and this appears to be changing now.
Reddit user discovered Apple Music web player now streams the complete song as long as you’re logged in using the Apple ID having Apple Music Subscription.
With this recent update, now users can add playlists and albums to their library without leaving the browser. It is not a full-fledged music web player as compared to Spotify. You can’t create playlists, browse the catalog, and find out what your friends are playing.
