Today, Apple debuted a new Beats Pill+ app for both iOS and Android users, providing a way for those who own the new Beats Pill+ speakers to control the speakers, check power levels, link multiple speakers together, and download software updates.
The app marks the first time Apple has ever released an app on both iOS and Android at the same time, and it’s the second Android app that the company has ever released, with the first being the Move to iOS app that was released earlier this year. Apple is planning on introducing additional Android apps in the future, including an Apple Music app.
The new Beats Pill+ app comes just over three days after Apple launched its new Beats Pill+ speakers. The Beats Pill+ is a wireless Bluetooth speaker that’s the first Apple has introduced since purchasing the Beats brand in May of 2014. The speaker is available in black and white colour options starting today from Apple’s online store for CAD$329.00.
Beats Pill+ for iOS is available as a free download from the App Store. The app requires any device running iOS 8.0 or later and has been optimized for the iPhone 5, 6, and 6 Plus. The app is also available for Android devices from the Google Play Store.
