Beats Music not launching on Windows Phone until later this week

Beats Music is launching today -- for certain mobile platforms anyway. We last looked at the new music streaming service earlier this month, confirming that an app would also be released on the Windows Phone Store to join both Android and iOS. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case. We'll not witness a simultaneous launch for Microsoft's Windows Phone.

According to a tweet, published by Beat's Ian C Rogers, the US (this is a region restricted service, folks) will have to wait a few more days for Beats Music to arrive on the Windows Phone Store.

Windows Phone Beats Music

If you're eagerly awaiting the launch of Beats Music on our beloved platform, you'll have to pencil Friday 24th on your calendar. In the meantime, why not check out Xbox Music or Nokia MixRadio, if you haven't already done so?

We'll keep you all posted as to when the app launches on Windows Phone.
