The folks at Beats have reportedly been working on their music streaming service for over two years now and its finally ready for primetime. Beats announced last month that the service will finally go live in January, though back then it didn’t give a concrete date, now it has. In a post on its official blog, the company has confirmed that Beats Music launch date has been pegged on January 21st, the service will finally bring you “the right song for right now.” Initially Beats Music is going to offer more than 20 million songs for $10 per month.
If you and your family subscribe to AT&T, then you’re in for an added advantage. Up to five people and ten devices can have access to Beats Music streaming service for $14.99 per month, normally that sort of access would cost $50. Beats says that the app will be available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone at launch. Customers will be able to try the entire service for free before they decide on dropping $10 per month for unlimited streaming and downloading from the 20 million strong catalog. The company promises that users will find “great” music every time they open the app, and that Beats Music will change the way they listen to music. Are you excited about trying out this new music streaming service, and do you think there’s need for it given that the market is already being catered to by a handful of other similar services?
