Apple reportedly working on its first Android app ever, it might be a Beats-powered music service
Do you remember that Apple acquired Beats Audio back in May 2014 for roughly $3 billion? Cupertino is said to be ditching the existing Beats Music app for iOS/Android in favor of a whole new music streaming service similar to Spotify, which will help Apple gain valuable positions on the music-streaming market.

Rumors claim that Apple's streaming service rival will command monthly installments of just $7.99, which is cheaper than the aforementioned Spotify and most of the bigger names in the music-streaming business. If Apple puts such a price tag, there will probably be some shiftings on the market, but if Cupertino wants to be really successful in this aspect, it surely needs to consider making an Android app for its music streaming service.

According to some sources, this will certainly happen. Tech insiders close to Cupertino have allegedly claimed that Apple is really prepping its first app for Google's platform, which will allow Android users to flock towards its Beats-powered music subscription service.

We can only speculate that the Beats-powered music-streaming service will debut at this year's WWDC event (as it's one of the more major events for Apple in the foreseeable future). If the rumors are true, Apple's first Android app might arrive sometime near or after the developers' conference.
