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:
