Tech Tuesday - Switching to Beats Music

With Beats Music in the news a lot recently, I decided to give the service a fair shake to see how it compares to my beloved Rdio and other music streaming services. Here are 3 reasons why you might want to switch over.

Reason 1 - Apple Just Bought Them

  • Beats Music isn’t going to close up shop any time soon
  • They just reduced their price per year to $99/year (or ~$8/month)
  • They’re also available on Android, Windows, Online, and on Sonos

Reason 2 - Full Access to Over 20M Songs

  • Search for your favorite band and listen to any of their songs
  • Store your favorite music on your device for offline listening in high quality
  • Never listen to another ad again, just your music on your terms

Reason 3 - Human Curation

  • Tell Beats where you are and what you’re doing, and it’ll create a personalized playlist for you
  • Real people create playlists with the best music for you
  • Create your own playlists and share them with your friends

Check out Beats Music today!
