Beats Music opens its doors to developers
Beats Music has opened up its API to the public, allowing third-party developers access to its service and catalog of music. The newest kid on the block in the streaming game has already shared its API privately with the likes of Sonos, but this presents the opportunity for more ways to get it. From CNET:
"If you're willing to pay $100 a year for music, which in my experience for all the world's music is a tremendous bargain, you should have access to music anywhere you might want it, in your car, house, anywhere," Beats Music Chief Executive Ian C. Rogers told CNET in an interview.
Beats Music is still U.S. exclusive, and will be playing catch up for a while against the more experienced players in the space. But the comment from Rogers is absolutely correct. No matter who you're getting your music from, or whether you're subscribing or buying, you want it everywhere you can get it. We've already seen that Beats Music is an early CarPlay partner, but opening up the API gives the car makers the chance to bake it into their own systems.
