What is Apple Music?

The application also features radio stations Apple Music 1, Apple Music Country, and Apple Music Hits, which are made available in almost 200 countries throughout the day.

When a user subscribes to the service, he/she can get a free trial for almost six months, and then after that, there is a charging fee monthly.
Apple Music application for iOS was welcome by some mixed reviews as the app had a lot of backlash of being not so user friendly and interface being too complicated. The plus point of the application that many users pointed to was the playlist that was complied, the wide array of genres and variety of songs in the catalog, and also the linking with Apple products and services. However, in iOS 10, the design for the app faced some changes with navigation improvement and focused on the library of users.
Why is the Song Skipping Error Occurring on Apple Music?
According to some online reports and surveys, it is been come notice that users are facing some major issues regarding skipping songs. Users are listening to the music on the app and suddenly the song skips. Although the bug is not very often and can be fixed by the user too by doing some tweaks.

If the application is being used on an iPad, iPhone, or Android device, it is necessary to check the signal strength. Suppose there are not a lot of bars in the network section that the problem might be network. One of the tweaks or solutions for the problem is connecting to Wi-Fi so that the connection is stable. If the user is already connected to Wi-Fi and still the problem persists, then disconnect and reconnect to the network. If the problem persists, then rebooting the entire router is more plausible.
Another more plausible reason for the skipping of songs might be an old version of the app existing on the phone. To fix this, update the app regularly as there was an update the iOS 14.7, which solved the Lossless Audio and Dolby Atmos songs to kind of stop streaming in the middle. To check which update has currently been installed on the device like iPhone or iPad, go to the Settings, then navigate to ‘General,’ tap, and then further to ‘Software Update’. And it will tell the user about the details of the version of the update currently being used.
Check if the update is available and if there is a download the update. For Android users, the user has to navigate to Play Store and then go to the Profile icon located at the top-right corner, then go to ‘Manage apps and device,’ and further, navigate to ‘See details in the ‘Updates available’ section.
