Apple To Stop Development Of Beats Music App For Windows Phone

5/02/2015 by Sharon Shahzad

When Beats Music was first launched, it made its way onto iOS, Android, and Windows Phone, but with Apple acquiring Beats and given Apple’s notoriety for their closed ecosystem, many were wondering if they would continue supporting the app on other platforms. In some ways it would make sense if they did since they wouldn’t want to alienate any subscribers.

That much is true as far as Android users are concerned, but unfortunately it seems that the same courtesy might not be extending to Windows Phone users. In a report from 9to5Mac, they have heard that Apple could be dropping their support for the Windows Phone platform. Like we said the app currently exists for Windows Phone users, but this was prior to Apple acquiring the company.

In their report, it seems that Windows Phone’s low market share is to blame. “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.”
