A Beats Music app quietly popped up Thursday in the Windows Phone app store, roughly one week after the new streaming service made its debut. Beats Music competes with Spotify and Rdio and first launched for Android and iOS on January 21.
The app is free, but to actually listen to music, you need to pony up $10 per month. Unlike other music-streaming services, there's no free limited or ad-supported option. Beats Music for Windows Phone looks nearly identical to the other apps, and appears to come with all of the same features.
While you can download the app right now and set up an account, you won't be able to start a new subscription to the service because Beats Music isn't adding new subscribers until it can work out a few bugs with the system.
That news came just one day after the service launched, and we've yet to get an update from the company saying it's been fixed. If you download the Windows Phone app and sign up, you'll be alerted when you can start listening to music. You'll also get a free seven-day trial so you can see how you like Beats Music before you hand over your money.
Update, Friday at 4:11pm PT: Beats Music is now allowing new users to sign up for a subscription to the $10-per-month service as soon as they download and install any of the Beats Music apps.
