Beats Music for iOS updated with Tune Your Taste feature, player improvements and more [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
The past few months have been pretty big for Beats Music. The company rolled out a version 2.0 update in May that brought with it iPad support, and then at the end of May both Beats Electronics and Beats Music was scooped up by Apple for a cool $3 billion. Now Beats Music is back in the news and back to the updates, pushing out a significant new version of its iOS app.
Beats Music version 2.2.0 is now rolling out in the App Store with a few notable tweaks. First is Tune Your Taste, which allows users to tweak the genres and artists in their Just For You recommendations. Also included in the update is a Verified Badge that, just like on Twitter, lets you know that an account is “certified as legit.” The full version 2.2.0 changelog is as follows:
You asked for it, and we listened! In this latest release we've added:
- Tune Your Taste -- Want to switch up your Just For You recommendations? Change your favorite genres and artists with the Tune Your Taste feature in Settings
- Sentence History -- View your most recently played songs from The Sentence
- Verified Badges -- That red check mark means the profile is certified as legit by Beats
- Player Improvements -- We fixed a ton of bugs to make playback more smooth and reliable
...and much, much more!
While that changelog isn’t huge, this Beats Music version 2.2.0 update looks pretty spiffy. Not only will Tune Your Taste allow you to make the Just For You recommendations an even better fit for you, but the player improvements ought to make listening to your tunes an even better experience. Here’s to hoping that these features hit Android and Windows Phone soon.
UPDATE: Good news, Beats Music users! As our pal Darryl Mouzone pointed out, these new features are also rolling out to Android and Windows Phone users. The Android version of Beats Music is being updated to version 1.2.0, while the Windows Phone app is being bumped to version 1.15.
