Beats Music Updated With In-App Subscriptions

beatsmusic_logo_0Beats has updated its Beats Music streaming music app with in-app subscriptions, Facebook friend search, an offline mode and more. The new features will allow users to subscribe to Beats Music via their iTunes account.

Previously, users were required to subscribe to Beats Music via the service’s website, which allowed Beats to bypass Apple’s 70/30 split with developers. That split would result in Apple netting $3 per month from Beats Music’s $10 per month fee for every subscriber Beats adds within the app.

Streaming services such as Rdio and Rhapsody also sell in-app subscriptions. Spotify does not offer in-app subscriptions, instead opting for a free, ad-supported mode available in its app.
