Apple first announced that its new music service would be coming to Android devices sometime “this fall”, though we really haven’t heard much about it since then, aside from a few leaked screenshots. The majority of the features Apple originally announced would come with the service have made their way to the Android version, including the Beats 1 radio station, the Connect feature and the ability to get handpicked recommendations based on what you’re listening to. Since not all features are available in this first release, the app technically sports a “beta” tag for the time being.
Apple notes that music videos are missing from the Android version, and signing up for a family plan requires a Mac or iOS device for now.
Interested Android users can sign up for a three-month free trial. After the trial is up, individual plans will cost $9.99 per month, and when family plans become available, you can have up to six members on the same account for $14.99 per month.
The new Apple Music application for Android looks pretty similar to its iOS counterpart, though you can tell Apple at least tried to make it look a bit more like an Android app. It has a slide-out hamburger menu on the left hand side and even an overflow button for extra settings on each individual track.
