Apple Music Beats 1 radio is a 24/7 online radio station on Apple Music. Unlike other traditional radio stations which use radio waves, Beats 1 totally relies on the Internet and can only be accessed through iTunes and the Apple Music app.

Instead of providing contents via algorithms which are applied by platforms like Spotify and Pandora, Apple gathers experts to curate playlists and employs DJs to hold the live radio station shows. In this way, Apple creates a place that genuinely knows what its listeners need with exclusive feeds and live streaming.

Next up in this passage, I’ll be showing you how to listen to Beats 1 and how you can listen to Beats 1 without the Apple Music app and iTunes.

How to Listen to Beats 1

Beats 1 is available on computer, phone and even on Apple Music’s web player. In prior to access this feature, you’ll have to create your Apple ID which might be a little tricky that it requires your credit card numbers and address. If you already have an account, just feel free to get started.

For computer users:

Open iTunes and click on the Radio button and hit the Beats 1 logo. Then you’ll be able to enter Beats 1 page and browse shows or music that you want to listen to.

If I missed the show, can I listen to it afterwards?

Yes. Although Beats 1 is advertised as a 24/7 non-stop radio station, actually it provides 12 hours of new shows every day. And during the next 12 hours, these shows will be broadcasted to the other half of the world. So technically, you’ll be able to listen to the show again in the latter half of 24 hours. But considering you might have slept at that time, Apple will add all the shows to each DJ’s playlist one or two days after the show, so that you can listen to the playback afterwards.

Can I listen to Beats 1 offline?

No, there’s no way to stream the live show without the internet. But you can download the show from DJ’s playlist to your device for offline listening. The thing is these shows usually last more than 10 hours and if you download them to your phone, this is definitely going to drain your phone storage real quick. And the playback can only be played on Apple devices, which means you can only listen to these shows again when Apple Music or iTunes available for you.
