It’s been announced that the Beats Music streaming service will finally close for good on November 30.
The news has been expected ever since it was confirmed that Apple had purchased Beats for $3 billion back in May of last year. Now, with Apple Music having established itself over the past five months, the shutters are coming down on the Beats Music streaming service.
A short post on the Beats support website confirms that “Beats Music ends on November 30,” before advising that “Your subscription will be cancelled, but you can move your picks and preferences over to Apple Music right now.”
It draws another link to the new Apple service by stating that “All the pros that curated music for you are still crafting more amazing experiences” on Apple Music. It also points out that “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 favourite artist, and more.”
