Turns out the rumors were true. Starting at 12:01 a.m. on Christmas Eve, the entire Beatles library will be available across all major music streaming services. You’ll be able to stream your favorite songs from the Fab Four as soon as the clock strikes midnight in your region.
The full list of supported services includes Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify, Microsoft Groove, Amazon Music, Tidal, Rhapsody, Deezer and Slacker. That should cover pretty much everyone who’s using a music streaming app. If you’ve been holding out on trying one of these services, this might be the push you need.
To celebrate the news, Google offered up a list of the most searched Beatles albums and lyrics. Some companies are also introducing special experiences of their own to enhance The Beatles’ music. Rhapsody says it’s rolling out curated playlists, a photographic timeline of the band, trivia and more.
The decision to bring The Beatles to all the major streaming services is a welcome change from the current trend of artists offering their music exclusively on one platform. Hopefully we’ll see more musicians follow suit.
