Twitter is set to release a music app for iOS devices according to reports across the internet.

The app, referred to as Twitter Music, is possibly set for release as early as the end of this month according to CNET, and will aim to help users discover new music artists by streaming their tracks.

Four sections are said to be included within the app, such as a ‘popular’ and ‘emerging’ sections to highlight the most listened to and new tracks, ‘suggestions’ and a ‘#NowPlaying’ that highlights songs being tweeted by other users.

It has also been reported that the service will not require users to have an account through Twitter and will be powered by San Francisco-based music streaming start-up We Are Hunted which it acquired last year and streamed through the SoundCloud app.
