Here’s how to play Apple’s Beats 1 radio on your Android device

Unfortunately, the fledgling radio service is currently only available for iOS, OS X, and Windows users.

Those with Android devices have been promised an Apple Music app, but that won’t arrive until autumn.

Site creator and Twitter user Benji R says he “managed to find an unencrypted HLS URL” of Beats 1, which allows the stream to be broadcast on Android devices.

You can find the stream right here, or you could shell out some big bucks for an iPhone 6 instead. Here’s a video review to get you started:
