The other day we reported that Beats Music for Windows Phone would launch on the 24th of January, but unfortunately it looks like the release has since been put on hold. According to the Beats Music website, it reads that the service/app will be making its way onto Windows Phone “soon”, as opposed to previously when a more specific release date was offered instead. It is unclear why they decided to delay the release of the app for Windows Phone devices, but we wonder if it might have anything to do with the fact that new signups were recently put on hold due to overwhelming demand. It would make sense since there is no point in downloading an app if you can’t sign up for the service, right?
Either way we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more updates, but in the meantime it looks like Windows Phone users will have to remain patient. Beats Music was launched last week and is expected to be a competitor to the likes of Spotify and other music streaming services. If there is one advantage Beats Music has is that they have experienced people behind it who have been in the music industry for decades who have helped create many great hits. However the drawback is that Beats Music does not have a free tier, unlike Spotify. This means that after the 7-day free trial period is over, listeners are expected to fork out $9.99 a month if they hope to continue using the service.
