Apple Increasing iTunes Song Previews to 90 Seconds.


iTunes users will soon find previewing songs before purchasing more enjoyable as well as more useful. Currently, there is a 30-second time limit on song previews. While a fair chunk of songs start the ball rolling before the 30-second mark, there are quite a few out there that need 2-3x that length before you start getting into the meat of the melody.

On that note, emails are being sent out to various content owners and record labels today, detailing a pretty important change. Specifically, song previews on any and all songs that are longer than 2 minutes and 30 seconds will see their preview time increased from 30 seconds up to 90 seconds! Songs that are shorter than 2:30 will continue on with current 30-second preview.

The licensing issues that caused this feature to pass the music event back in September look to have been finally resolved. As of writing, no official launch date has been announced. But rest assured, as soon as I know, you’ll know.
