Media sources revealed the plan in a tweet on Friday.

iTunes Match determines which songs in your library are available in the iTunes Store. Any music with a match is automatically added to iCloud for you to listen to anytime, on any device. For the songs that aren’t, iTunes uploads what it can’t match (which is much faster than uploading your entire music library.

He not only mentions the new 100,000 song limit but also tell that Apple plans to introduce alongside iOS 9 later this year. Cue repeated that all Apple Music subscriptions will basically include iTunes Match.

Another question was raised as Apple Music subscribers will still require to pay the $25/year fee for iTunes Match. In response to that Cue said the same basic structures of uploading the tracks in your library we don’t have are part of Apple Music.

Apple Music will search thoroughly and match and upload any songs you specify so that you can access them anywhere just like iTunes Match. This shows that if there’s any song or album you need to download or to listen to that’s not involved in the Apple Music collection now you can just buy it from any source and then listen to it in the same app no matter which device you use.

This will be a great opportunity for the music lovers. The grouping of Apple Music and iTunes Match alongside the new 100,000 song limit carries the company’s contributions up to par with Google Play Music, which lets you upload up to 50,000 songs and stream from a huge collection of music as part of its subscription service.
