[Beat It] Apple Reportedly Planning To Shut Down Beats Music Streaming Service [Update]

It's common for companies to eliminate redundancy when an acquisition takes place. So it should come as no surprise that Apple is reportedly in the process of shutting down Beats Music, the streaming service it picked up when it bought the company for $2.6 billion earlier this year.

T-Mobile Will Add Google Play Music To Its Music Freedom Service Later In 2014, Tides You Over With Grooveshark, Rdio, And Others

Remember when T-Mobile announced plans that included Music Freedom, which let users stream music from certain services without impacting their wireless data limits? Remember when it didn't include [insert your music streaming service of choice here], so you ignored it?

DoubleTwist Music Player Updated With AirPlay And AllPlay Streaming Support For Magic Radio Service

DoubleTwist's unique Android music app has been able to stream audio to Apple's AirPlay standard for some time, and to Qualcomm's competing AllPlay WiFi speakers since May.

Rdio Adds Gapless Playback To Its Android Music Client, Really Wants You To Listen To Pink Floyd

Rdio's Android app got a teensy, tiny update today, adding gapless playback to all devices running Android 4.1. According to the "What's New" section of the Play Store page, the feature was added in by popular demand. For the uninitiated, gapless playback is exactly what it sounds like: a seamless transition from one track to the next.
