The first major update to the Beats Music app since Apple bought the company two weeks ago is now rolling out to Android devices. This release, version 1.1, addresses some areas that previously revealed just how young a piece of software this is. For starters, the app now supports landscape mode. Go ahead, turn your phone sideways and see what happens. Better yet, fire Beats up on a tablet.
In addition to that, people listening in offline mode can now save music to an SD card. Other changes affect how users discover new music. The "Find It" section has been renamed "Browse," and the "Just for You" recommendations have been refined so that they're more useful.
Here's the full changelog Beats has provided.
- 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
