Apple Music isn’t available on Android yet — though it is coming — but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on Beats 1 radio. Thanks to a new web app, you can tune into the 24/7 worldwide broadcast on Android and other unsupported devices right away.


With iOS 8, Apple is bringing a multitude of exciting new features to iPhone and iPad.

Yeah, color-matching doesn’t sound that fun, but this one? It really is.
