AUSTIN, Texas — The 2015 Chevrolet Cruze car and Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck are among the Chevrolet vehicles to feature the Beats Music streaming audio service as part of the new Chevrolet AppShop.

The app will be available later this year on select 2015 Chevrolet models in the U.S. with MyLink technology, including the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Equinox, Impala, Malibu, Volt, Silverado and Silverado HD.

Chevrolet made the Beats Music announcement at South by Southwest on Friday. Beats Music joins iHeartRadio, Slacker Radio, TuneIn Radio and others in the MyLink AppShop.

"Chevrolet will incorporate a version of Beats Music tailored for in-vehicle use," GM said in a statement. "A trial or paid Beats Music account will be required. Features that require a large amount of attention — such as those that use a keyboard — will be unavailable while the vehicle is in motion."

Beats Music is a streaming audio player that allows customers to access music via the Internet. GM is upgrading to high-speed 4G LTE broadband connections for its OnStar service starting with certain 2015 models later this year.

The Chevrolet AppShop aims to cut driver distraction. The apps are designed to be run on vehicle screens rather than handheld smartphones.

The AppShop will be standard on Chevrolets with MyLink technology. GM said more Chevrolet vehicles with AppShop will be announced later.

Edmunds says: The addition of Beats Music to the new Chevrolet AppShop gives Chevy drivers yet another reason to keep their smartphones in their pockets.
