Apple will reportedly not support Windows Phone for their upcoming streaming music service based on the technology and content that it acquired with the purchase of Beats Music. A Windows Phone Beats Music app launched in January 2014, a few months before Apple bought the company for $3 billion.
According to 9to5Mac's sources, the new Beats-based service will naturally support iOS, and Apple also plans to release an Android version that the company will develop in-house. The word for Windows Phone support is not as promising:
"However, while a Windows Phone version of the original Beats service exists, Apple does not currently plan to develop a new app for Microsoft's platform due to its modest market share, nor is it planning a new version of the service for web browsers. Beats Music is currently available over the web using a Flash-based application that lacks many of the features from the smartphone apps."
There's no word on what this new service will be called. 9to5Mac reports there have been some internal issues with the new apps's development and that the service won't likely launch until sometime in June 2015.
