Could it be possible that Apple is considering making one of its prime services available on Android? This could be a first for the company and according to the latest report from Billboard has Tim Cook and Co. considering it.
Apple’s iTunes Store is seeking ways to expand outside iOS and Windows to combat declining digital music sales and might see a life on Android. Apparently talks have taken place between Apple and unknown “senior label executives” to bridge over an iTunes app onto Android and connect to millions of devices, thus increase their revenue. The other goal is to take on the emerging and popular platforms like Spotify, Beats and Pandora.
Billboard states that “Apple has opened exploratory talks with senior label executives about the possibility of launching an on-demand streaming service that would rival Spotify and Beats Music, according to three people familiar with the talks. Apple is also thinking about adding an iTunes App for Android phones, the Google rival that has been growing faster than the iPhone, these sources said.”
Of course, this is considered a rumour and no word on when or if this will happen.
