So I updated my MacBook Pro NTB last night, and now today when using Apple Music through iTunes I'm experiencing songs freezing for a few seconds at a time occasionally, and frequently skipping a song that is playing 30 seconds to a minute in.

EDIT: Playing music I own but don't have downloaded is giving me issues and so is downloading my songs so I can play them locally. Thinking issues on their end right now.

I have been experiencing the same problem all day today. Spent an hour on the phone with Apple this afternoon. They confirmed that it is a problem on their end and working on a fix.

Same here. It will get into a skipping frenzy at times playing less than ½ of the track and jumping to the next.

So, any news? Will they release an update or it can be solved server side?

Anyone else still having this problem? Looks like it's just happening with non-downloaded songs for me...

It happened to me a few times this week but it's been pretty rare. I also listen for like 8 hours a day on average so when I say rare it really has been rare for me.

I wasn't listening for to long but it almost seemed to be getting worse... :\ It'll give it a bit of a rest and see if it works better tomorrow.
