Beats launches Beats Music for iOS today. The music streaming service’ launch for iOS had been planned since Q3 2013 but was recently decided to launch on January 21. The service will directly go in comparison with Pandora, Spotify, Google Music and Apple iTunes Radio.
Beats Music internet streaming service, the perfect harmony between the algorithm and human curation is something more than just a music player. It wont just stream music to your iPhone or iPad, it would stream relevant music to your device. Described as a ‘mood sensor’ Beats effectively plays the right music you need at the time.
We wanted to build a music service that combined the freedom of an on-demand subscription service – unlimited, uninterrupted streaming and downloads of tens of millions of songs – but layer on top features that would give you that feeling only music that moves you can give. The right song at the right time will give you a chill. Make you pull someone close. Nod your head. Sing in the mirror. Roll down the car window and crank the volume to the right. – quotes MacRumors
The library consists of over 20 million songs that you can stream or listen offline. As reported by AppleInsider, the app provides music “Highlights” that keeps you updated with the most popular and hot music among the Beats community.
The app features track, album and artist search functionality. The most important section is the “Just For You” section which consists of a list of music relevant to your taste and profile.
The “Right Now” section streams a particular music everytime based upon your mood and taste which determines the right music for you based upon your feelings, likings and most favoured genres of music, probably the best section in the app.
The app also allows you download music for offline playback and create custom playlists. You can use the social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and Beats Music’s own mini network to share the music and playlists with your friends.
Beats Music is a 13.2MB free download at the App Store. The unlimited streaming service is available at a $9.99 per month. [Download]
