Rdio, Spotify and even Google’s Play Music have new competitor with Beats Music, which officially launched today in the United States.

The Beats Music app is now available for Android and iOS devices and gives users access to a 20 million song collection curated by both machine and humans. The app builds a playlist for users based on the choices they made during the initial setup of the service. The app will let you choose genres of music you like, you love and even those you hate to help build the playlist that suits your personality.

There’s also a nifty feature in the app that changes songs on your playlist based on where you are and what you are doing. The feature called “Sentencing” asks the users a few questions like where you are, what you’re planning to do, with who, etc. and finds the appropriate type of music to fit the situation.

The service is now available to US customer at around US$10 a month ($9.99 to be exact), but Beats is currently offering a free 7-day trial for those who will sign up today. Moreover AT&T customers will be able to get a family bundle that lets up to five people and 10 devices to use the service for $14.99.

There’s no word yet if the service will be available elsewhere, but if it does, it will certainly give other streaming services a run for their money.
