Apple are reportedly looking into the possibility of making iTunes available on Android platforms.

According to Billboard, the company are researching plans to create a steaming service to rival Spotify and will make an iTunes app that will be available to users of Google's Android operating system.

Apple are currently said to be in the early stages of negotiations with all the major record labels to establish whether the streaming service is viable.

Meanwhile, Twitter #Music, the music discovery service launched by Twitter in 2013, is to close next month (April).

The service was designed to enable users able to keep a close track on the bands and artists being discussed on the social network with tracks recommended to users based on who they follow with songs being steamed directly via iTunes, Spotify and Rdio.

However, the app failed to take off and was removed from the iOS app store on Friday night (March 21).
