Updated Beats Music for Windows Phone makes it easier to share music

Beats Music has just received a nice little update on Windows Phone. You'll find version 1.17 now available in the Windows Phone Store. Today's update to Beats Music focuses on improving the sharing aspects of the app.

Here's what Apple say's is new in Beats Music 1.17:

  • This update makes it easy to share links to your favorite music using text messages, email, and more.
  • You can now also see the most recently played songs from The Sentence

It's a small update, but one that the Beats Music fans on Windows Phone will surely appreciate. Especially those users who are a little more social and want to share their music with others!

  • Which is better: beats or Spotify?
  • Beats is not available in my country and I am currently subscribed to Spotify Premium free for 6 months, so far so good. You may also consider Deezer.
  • Spotify.. Beats is like a rotten Apple in comparison
  • May I offer a third and, in my opinion, better way? Rhapsody.
  • Or just the Xbox music pass...
  • I use Xbox Music (Grandfathered Zune Pass)
  • If you like listening to new music without searching for it then go for Beats music it has a lot of curated playlists which offer themselves to you. On the other hand Spotify is good when you have very specific musicians you want to listen to bht you're lazy to download their music and upload it to your phone. Basically Spotify is just a music storage, unless you know some friends with similar taste like you who make playlists there...
  • I do that with Songza...for free.
  • I love beats. Spotify definately has a broader community and better community features, but Beats' algorithums really figured me out. Quicky too. The hand made playlists from Beats staff are awesome and they always seem to serve me up something I'm genuinely interested in listening to. The 'Sentence' feature ain't all that hot, though.  
  • Neither beats out songza are available for my country, dessert needs a sub and I'm only on Spotify cos it has a free account at last. Not as practical to use as I wish buy since its my only code I stick with that... :\
  • I really want to make the switch from Xbox music to Spotify or beats but the lack of downloading my music to my SD card makes it a no go for either :'(
  • Just store the app on the SD card and the music will be stored there.
  • Not available in India.
  • you forgot: "What do you think of this latest update to the Beats Music app?"
  • Sam isn't interested in what we think. The length of this article says it all.
  • LOL
  • Its John's Trademark
  • I wonder when Apple will change the publisher name from Beats to Apple. Probably when pigs fly.
  • —VSCOcam for windows phone please. VSCO: We don't have plans to develop #VSCOcam right now for those devices, but if that ever changes we'll let you know. —and this made ​​me very sad
  • Not available in the UK. Oh well... Lol :P
  • Xbox (Microsoft) music and beats (Apple) both updated on same day!?.....alumernarty :P
  • *x-files tune plays*
  • it feels weird that Apple has an app in the windows phone store :P
  • It's update music day!!
  • Not available in Bangladesh!
  • Spotify
  • I was a Zune Pass subscriber and later an Xbox Music customer, but with a wife and 3 teen/20-something children, the AT&T deal for 5 people for $14.99/mo can't be beat (no pun intended). I can overlook a lot when I'm saving that kind of huge $$$, and Beats Music is actually surprisingly good. The bit rate quality of the downloads sounds better to my ears than Xbox Music. The only downside so far is that the app is VERY slow and laggy, and you must manually put it in offline mode or you stream live, regardless of whether the song is already downloaded or not.
  • It would be nice if Beats actually worked on WP 8.1
  • MixRadio all the way for me!
  • Neither beats out songza are available for my country, dessert needs a sub and I'm only on Spotify cos it has a free account at last. Not as practical to use as I wish buy since its my only code I stick with that.. :\
  • Say's? WPC App for Android- Lenovo IdeaTab A3000
