Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 2.36.38 PMJust as news hit this morning that the European Commission approved Apple’s acquisition of Beats, the Beats Music iOS app just received an update with a number of notable new features.

Included in version 2.2.0 of the app for iPhone and iPad is the ability to customize the app’s “Just for You” recommendations with a feature called Tune Your Taste. From within Settings, Tune Your Taste will allow users to customize things like genre and artists to get more personalized recommendations.  

A new “Sentence History” feature lets users view past playlists created using The Sentence feature, and verified badges for profiles puts a red checkmark next to profiles “certified as legit by Beats.” The Sentence is a feature of the app that allows users to create a sentence that includes a location, emotion, genre, and other preferences that in return automatically creates a playlist of music for the situation. 

The update also includes other improvements to the player that according to the release notes “make playback more smooth and reliable.”

The updated Beats Music iOS app is available on the App Store now. A full list of what’s new is below:

● Sentence History — View your most recently played songs from The Sentence

    • Don’t be silly. “Play me some blues”. What blues? Texas blues or Delta blues? Acoustic blues or electric blues? Sad or not really? If i’m bbqing i don’t wanna hear some New York modern jazz. I need me some Kermit Ruffins sauce.

    So Apple has both iTunes Radio & Beats Music. I really wonder whether they’ll merge these two music services into one or not.

  3. So the real question is when Apple is going to integrate the icloud login capability within Beats Music. Second is to get it as part of iTunes Match or similar package.

  4. Still can’t sync my own library with it, still no equivalent desktop access. I wouldn’t have beats if I wasn’t sharing it with 4 other people on my AT&T plan. Spotify is better at everything else but curation.
