Beats Music provides high-quality streaming and relevant music news in an eye-catching music player. Combining social networking and customizable music options, Beats adds another dimension to your typical mobile streaming service.
Attractive, basic interface: Beats Music uses classic swiping motion to navigate between tabs and offers an appealing design through its bold color scheme. The search results screen layout filters by song, album, artist, or playlist to provide an orderly list.
High-quality playback: Beats Music plays audio in two formats: standard and high quality. Both formats had excellent sound and streamed music with no delay.
Unique features: While many streaming applications are similar, Beats Music contains one-of-a-kind tools like "The Sentence," which allow you to unearth songs that best fit your current mood. Hundreds of playlists, created by fellow music fans, are readily available to set the tone for a variety of activities, such as grilling and running.
High cost, mediocre app: After the seven-day free trial, Beats Music costs $9.99 per month, but it doesn't give you as many customizable options as you'd expect from a paid application. We noticed that our favorite genres/artists could not be changed after installation, which may be concerning if your preferences change with time.
Beats Music exceeds all expectations of a music streaming app, but its lack of personalization and steep cost do detract from its overall effect. The chic menu system is engaging and fun, and the downloadable music playlists work during offline listening. For its price, Beats Music should provide services like the graphical equalizer offered by Poweramp Music Player to enhance the listener's experience. We believe that Beats Music is a costly service for the casual listener, but the few unique features it has may be worth the price for music connoisseurs.
Beats Music is a new kind of streaming service that combines the best music experts and technology to always deliver you the right music at the right time. All you have to do is hit play.
Access over 20 million songs, from every genre. Listen instantly or save to your device to listen to offline.
