Pebble team has begun pushing some apps. An email blast was sent out earlier this morning highlighting a few Pebble apps. Two of the three were for Android and one in particular caught our attention. The app is called MusicBoss and as the name would suggest, it deals with music control.
Google Play Music may be a favorite amongst Android users when it comes to uploading and storing your music in the cloud, but they are not the only option available. Sure Google offers quite a bit and they do it for free, but there are reasons to look elsewhere. And in this case we look towards Amazon and the Cloud Player, which in this case pairs with the Amazon MP3 app on your smartphone or tablet.
Spotify is said to be on the verge of unveiling a free version of its music streaming service, with ads, of course. The details, however, might make the heads of users spin and might actually tarnish Spotify's reputation.
YouTube's rumored subscription service might just have to wait a bit longer. Sources close to the matter are saying that Google is apparently not yet satisfied with how things are going and will be delaying the launch until at least the first quarter of 2014.
Winamp will be shutting down next month. This news comes following 15 years of being available and has arrived as little more than a mention on the Winamp download site. There was no specifics given as to the reason for the shut down, however speculation suggests lack of popularity at this point.
Google Glass XE11 update was setting the path for Play Music support. At the time that talk was based on details discovered by users taking a deep dive in the update, however a more recent update has confirmed the support. The details have been shared on the official +GoogleGlass page and are asking users to "look for an email in the next few weeks."
earlier in the week, this latest Pandora app update did not add Chromecast support. We suspect some may be disappointed about that, however this update did bring something that was long overdue -- proper tablet support. In fact, this update is being touted as one that has been "designed specifically for Android tablets."
YouTube, primarily a video viewing and sharing service, has become bigger than itself when people start using it listen to music more than just to watch. It seems that YouTube plans to capitalize on this latest user trend by launching a subscription-based music service soon.
Beats Audio is not a new topic. In fact, way back in March we heard details on the service when it was still being referred to by codename. At the time the company was calling it Project Daisy, and while we have yet to see an official launch announcement, it does look like that will be coming soon. Possibly before the end of the year.
