Apple Music, the music subscription service from Apple has finally hit the Google Play Store, though with a tag of Beta status for now. The service was already available for iOS and Mac users, and Android version was much awaited, since there are several music launches to happy very soon.
Interestingly, this is one of the proper apps launched by Apple for Android OS, since the two apps made earlier, including “Move to iOS” and Beats Music weren’t really looking like something made by Apple. The app looks sleek, and the users would be getting a 3-month trial period before they are asked to pay for the subscription after that.
The Apple Music for Android app will work for Android smartphones running version 4.3 and later, and it will perfectly work even on tablets. If you are always on Android, you might have to sign up for an Apple ID to get the app to work. Apple’s SVP of Internet software and services Eddy Cue says that they are trying to simplify the sign-up process, so that the use of Apple ID is not needed here.
The beta version of Apple Music for Android has music, but the music videos will take time to arrive, and the user currently can opt only for the individual plan, and if they wish to choose for a family plan, that can be done only through desktop or iOS device.
All the music that was purchased by the user on iTunes, will be available here to download and play. Beats 1 Radio, the curated playlists and recommendations are what might make Apple Music for Android a choice for users over the other players currently. Wherever Apple Music is already available, the Android version will work there.
