On January 21st, Beats Music will arrive all major mobile platforms including; iOS, Android, Windows, and the web for a $9.99 monthly subscription. The streaming service, uses a combination of algorithms and human curation to propose songs. According to their website curation will set Beats Music apart from the music streaming competition, like Spotify, or Xbox Music. But in a country like this where mobile internet is still expensive, we don’t expect a big adoption of this service, besides we suspect a US only affair at launch.
In addition to streaming audio, Beats Music will also offer unlimited downloads of songs for local playback for as long as users maintain their subscription. The service will start with some 20 million songs, according to the company. According to The New York Times, Beats plans to heavily market the new service.
