Beats Music gets a big update to version 1.1

Beats Music has been updated for Android bringing some substantial improvements to the subscription music service. Now up to version 1.1, Beats Music brings a new landscape mode, the ability to save downloads to an external card, a refined 'Just For You' recommendations experience, improved playback, and the ability to transfer downloads between your phone's internal storage and the SD card.

The update arrives on the heels of Amazon launching its own music streaming service. Amazon's Prime Music is free for Prime subscribers while the Beats service costs $10-$15 per month and competes with services like Spotify.

Beats Music is now owned by Apple following a $3 billion deal.

Are you a Beats subscriber? Will you jamming to tunes in landscape mode and is the ability to save to an SD card important to you?

Still hating that move. Still think cloud storage is a over priced gimmick. A over priced gimmick that only works if you have a great and constant 4G connection. Your screwed on a plane haha. I'll stick with my 32gb SD card as long as Google will allow them at all.

Well, if you have a rooted device you could just download the SD card fix from the Play Store to resolve that issue.

Since Beats is now a part of Apple, Inc, can I assume this
means Apple will put MicroSD slots in the upcoming IPhone 6?

NoNexus says:

Doubt it. There was nothing talked about at the conference last time around

Only if they could come up with a proprietary card of course.

Sony did

This opens the door for CD quality all the way up to 24-bit 96KHZ recordings, as most new devices have. I'm sure at a Premium, but worth it if HD audio ever goes mainstream.

OK how?

Think because the 64gb sdcard can handle the space needed for the higher quality files.

Doing the free trial. Don't see why they need my phone number though.

This may be a stupid question, but when I store the music on my SD card, what exactly does that mean? Should it be showing up in the preloaded Music app on the Android device I am using or how exactly does this work?

And I just want to clarify, by using Beats in offline mode, stops from using my data?
