Beats Music for Android app

Not only are two significant Android devices receiving software updates, but two big Android apps are also getting some major work done this week.

The Beats Music app for Android has been bumped up to version 1.1.0, complete with some big-time improvements that include landscape mode, the ability to save offline downloads to an SD card, improved playback and more. The full changelog looks like this:

  • Landscape mode
  • Save offline downloads to an external SD Card
  • Transfer offline downloads between SD card & internal device storage
  • 'Find It' is now 'Browse' in the left hand navigation bar
  • Just For You recommendations are now even more refined and fresh
  • Improved playback
  • Bug fixes

Pebble also shared a significant announcement regarding its own Android app. The smartwatch maker has launched a beta program for its Pebble app for Android, enabling users to try out new versions of the app before the general public. To enroll in the beta, you can hit up the Pebble Android Beta Channel, opt-in to the beta testing and wait for the beta goodness to roll out to your device.

Are you signed up to beta test any Android apps? If so, which ones are you testing?
