Beats Music launched for iOS and Android this last Tuesday. When the service was first announced it was implied that it would launch simultaneously on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. Obviously that didn’t happen and today was the day that Beats Music said we’d get the app. Sadly, there’s apparently been a delay.
Head to the Beats Music website and you’ll see the three download buttons for the respective marketplaces of iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. You can click through and head to the App Store or Google Play if you want to get Beats Music on your iPhone or Android handset. However, the Windows Phone Store badge now says “coming soon”. That’s changed from the past few days where it had “coming January 24th” as the placeholder text.
What’s the cause for the delay? Certification? Bugs? No clue here, but we’ve reached out to Beats Music to see if they can clarify the situation and give a better time estimate than coming soon.
In the meantime, check out iMore’s review of Beats Music if you’re curious about the service.
Thanks everyone for the tips!
