Apple may launch iTunes Store for Android with music streaming

According to a Billboard article, Apple is considering launching an iTunes Store app for Android to boost sales of digital music.

The publication also says Apple executives are in conversation with record company executives to discuss an on-demand music streaming service.

Apple executives would be concerned about the growth of Spotify and would like to bring iTunes to Android phones, which have been growing faster than the iPhone.

The move to a streaming service could make iTunes more robust and similar to Spotify, Rdio, Deezer and others.

In 2011, Steve Jobs said he would never “make Android users happy”, but perhaps Tim Cook doesn’t have much of a choice these days. Remember the phrase said by the co-founder of Apple:

“We wondered if we should make a music client for Android. We put iTunes on Windows to sell more iPods. But I don’t see an advantage of putting our own music app on Android, except to make Android users happy. And I don’t want to make Android users happy ”.
