Beatport has finally launched its Android app today, a little late to the game, to be honest. Beatport is an alternative to Soundcloud and Spotify, focusing on electronic music and promoting various DJs from across the world. Beatport allows DJs to share their tracks with fans and followers and with their new free streaming service which was launched a few weeks ago, it is rapidly rising to the top once more. In the past few months to a year, Beatport has been relatively unknown to Android users, so it was in due time that they launched their app in the Google Play Store.
The new Beatport app can be downloaded for free from the Play Store, and within the app, you will be able to access the free streaming service, which will provide you with countless popular tracks from the DJs that use the platform. The app is inspired by Material Design and makes use of Google’s design language in a fun and useful way, so it’s definitely a feat for the eye. Its interface is easy to use, and besides free streaming, you can also get updates about venues and shows nearby.
Since microSD cards are losing popularity, many people are flocking towards music streaming services, so launching the Android app at this time might be a great opportunity for Beatport to raise awareness, as well as draw in listeners and DJs to the platform. If you’re a music fan and don’t have a lot of internal storage, you could try various streaming apps, some of which can actually stream from the cloud. Beatport is a good alternative if you like electronic music, which is one of the most popular genres of music right now. The only fault we’ve found with the app so far is that it doesn’t allow a landscape mode, which can become annoying to some, but hey, it’s not a deal-breaker.
