Beats Music app for iPhone and iPad updated to encourage users to move to Apple Music

The Apple Music streaming audio service is now live, and as a consequence the Beats Music service is being retired. The official Beats Music app for the iPhone and iPad has been updated with a message to encourage its users to switch over to Apple Music.

Here's the specific message that is being sent to Beats Music subscribers:

Apple Music is here! Apple Music offers many of the great features you already know and love in Beats Music. Plus, you'll have unlimited access to over 30 millions songs, including handcrafted playlists and albums curated by the world's leading music experts, a reimagined live radio station, and a personal connection to the artists you love. If you're a Beats Music subscriber, you can easily move your subscription to Apple Music, taking all your playlists and your library with you.

  • It'll only be a matter of time before Beats music app no longer exists. Can anyone verify if Apple Music curates playlists like Beats (i.e. sentence feature, "I'm feeling lazy playing video games with your mom listening to 70s reggae") Sent from the iMore App
  • I get an error message when I try to join Apple Music from my Beats account. I wonder if it is because I have the Beats family plan through AT&T.
  • I have an Android phone and an iPad. If I upgrade my beats music account to Apple Music, will I be able to access my Apple Music account, music, etc. from the Android Beats Music app? Posted via the iMore App for Android
