Apple announces on-demand music-streaming app
SAN FRANSISCO - Jimmy Iovine, co-founder of Beats Electronics, is introducing Apple Music, an app that combines a 24-hour, seven-day live radio station called "Beats 1" with an on-demand music streaming service.
"Beats 1," led by former BBC host Zane Lowe, will be broadcast live out of Los Angeles, New York and London.
The app will also give artists a forum called "Connect" to allow them to interact with fans by releasing demos, playlists, soundbites, videos and songs.
Iovine says the app brings together elements of the music world that are confusing and currently spread across many apps. He introduced it Monday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.
