Beats – yes, the Dr. Dre headphone company – is coming out with its own music streaming service on January 21st. It works by essentially asking you what your favorite genres are, then what your favorite artists are, and finally creating custom playlists based on your selections. As you use the device it’ll get more accustomed to your musical preferences and theoretically provide better playlists and musical suggestions.
The service is launching with 20 million tracks and is set to cost $10 a month, a reasonable fee if you plan on using the service quite a bit each month. The company hopes to upgrade tailor their service after launch even further by noting what you like to listen to where so it can know when to put together a workout or at work playlist.
These things are becoming a dime a dozen and are honestly for people who have simply money to waste. You’re pretty much paying $120 a year to have an app put music together for you instead of simply picking what you want to listen to yourself. Maybe people with qualms against downloading will find a use for this, but it’s really for lazy listeners.
