Beats Music has gone live:
The iPhone app for Beats Music went live in Apple’s iTunes app store ahead of its official launch on Tuesday morning. Beats will also be available on Android. There is a 7-day free trial, which is nowhere near long enough to hook someone who is already knee deep in another service.
Rdio is now totally free, with ads, for web streaming per the Rdio blog…
If you love something, set it free. Well, we couldn’t agree more. So starting today Rdio is free in the U.S. on the web. That means you can listen to 20 million songs plus all the albums, playlists, and stations you love anywhere there’s a computer. Absolutely free.
As part of this update, we’ve added in-stream messaging to Rdio on the web. These new ads are short and sweet. Free listeners will hear a mix of new feature announcements, messages from partner brands, notifications about exclusive content, and other helpful tips.
