Social media platform Twitter is to launch its own standalone music app after acquiring audio discovery platform We Are Hunted.
That's according to CNET, which reports that the Twitter Music app could launch on iOS by the end of this month.
The tech site reports that that app will recommend artists and songs based on a 'variety of signals', which will relate the acts an accounts holder follows on Twitter. Songs will then be streamed to the app via SoundCloud.
The app will carry the famous Twitter bird branding, unlike the company's recently-launched social video site, Vine. It features a silver 'play' button, says CNET.
Twitter users can sign into the app using their account details, but non-Twitter account holders can also sign up.
Twitter Music uses four main tabs: 'Suggested', which recommends songs and artists based on a user's follower history;. '#NowPlaying', which recommends songs currently being played by accounts they follow; 'Popular' brings in songs trending on We are Hunted, and an 'Emerging' tab tracks up-and-coming artists.
