Apple Will Be Ending Beats Music


After purchasing and re-launching Beats Music, Apple is pulling the plug on the streaming service. Come Nov. 30th, Beats Music will be no more, according to a statement.

Users will be able to transfer their music over to Apple Music as all subscriptions will be cancelled.

Apple bought Beats Music back in April of 2014 for $3 billion and relaunched it in June 2015. Beats founders Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine later joined the Apple family and helped develop Apple Music. Beats Music’s standout quality was that it featured playlists curated by your favorite artists. According to the statement, this feature will be transferred over to Apple Music.

“All the pros that curated music for you are still crafting more amazing experiences. Plus, on Apple Music, you’ll get even better recommendations based on music you already listen to and love, 24/7 global radio with Beats 1, exciting material from your favorite artist, and more.”

Apple Music has 8.5 million users, with 6.5 million of them being paying subscribers.
