Features on Beats Music
Curators: The service seems to be associated with curated music designed specifically for the listener based on his or her preferences in genre, artists and songs. The curators provide the right music at the right time.
Music for the moment: Users can tell the app where they are, how they are feeling and who they are with and Beat Music will provide unique soundtracks to fit the moment.
One of the examples that was showcased on the website was a user saying the following sentence into the app: I’m on a boat & I feel going back in time with my family to vintage soul and funk.
The app then picks up keywords from the answers that the users provided and then would start playing a soundtrack that matches up with their mood, location, and presence.
Music for you: Beats Music gives the user the usual music streaming features like following artists, bands, friends on the app and experts.
