Apple Is Shutting Down Beats Music—Here’s How to Store Your Favorite Songs
Prepare to hop aboard the Apple bandwagon.
The Silicon Valley favorite is officially saying goodbye to Beats Music just 18 months after acquiring Beats. So what does this mean? Before Nov. 30, users of the streaming service will have to transfer their tunes from their Android or iOS devices over to Apple Music in order to keep any personalized selections. To do so, a Beats Music subscriber should sign into his or her account and switch over to an individual Apple Music membership at $10 per month (the company also offers a family subscription for up to six people at $15 per month).
Not all signs of Beats Music will be gone, however. The company will still hold onto Beats 1, the radio station. “All the pros that curated music for you are still crafting more amazing experiences,” Beats executive Dale Bagwell wrote in a statement.
“Plus, on Apple Music, you’ll get even better recommendations based on music you already listen to and love, 24/7 global radio with Beats 1, exciting material from your favorite artist, and more."
Mark your calendars for Nov. 30, when Beats Music shuts down, and watch the video below for more information.
