Beats streaming service coming January 21

Dr. Dre’s Beats Music streaming service will take on Spotify and iTunes

Beats music is entering the streaming service market offering customers 20 million tracks for $10 a month.

Beats Music, known for their popular Dr Dre. Beats collection, is releasing its streaming service on January 21 for iOS, Android, Sonos and web browsers.

Created by Beats Electronics' Jimmy Lovine along with Dr. Dre, Luke Wood, Trent Reznor, and Ian Rogers, the service aims to help people who can never find the music their looking for.

The service boasts to suggest custom playlists based on user listening habits, also remembering locations such as suggesting your favourite music at the gym.

Beats Music also offer playlists and music suggested by industry experts, where you can narrow by Genre, Activities and Curators.

The service will initially carry 20 million songs, offering customers a 7-day free trial of the service. Then afterward the service would cost $9.99 a month.

There’s also a family bundle, which would come with a 90-day free trial, and would cost $14.99 a month, but allow up to 5 people and 10 devices a full, on-demand access to the single account.

American Music Producer, Jimmy Lovine said, “We built something that works for us, for me, our friends, Dr. Dre. We enjoy using it. It’s what we would like to have, and we built it to where we felt it could help others.”

The Beats Music website is offering customers the chance to claim their personal usernames before the launch date. Unfortunately, for all of us in Blighty, the service is currently unavailable outside the US. However, the website promises: "We're launching in your area soon. Keep an eye out for announcements."
