  • Apple Launches Apple Music App in the Google Play Store for Android Users

    On Tuesday, Apple has launched its subscription-based Apple Music service for the Android platform in the form of a new application that Android users can download for free from the Google Play store.

    Just like on iOS, Android users can subscribe to the service for $9.99 per month, but also have the optional 3-month free trial that can be activated before users have to pay. Included is the Beats 1 radio station, as well as the ability to stream any music that Apple Music has to offer.

    The release of Apple Music on the Google Play store marks the third Apple application on the Google Play store, right behind the Move to iOS and Beats Pill applications.

    At a first glance, the application doesn't appear to be built to the same standards as the iOS version of Apple Music. In many ways, it resembles the differences between iTunes on Windows versus iTunes on OS X, where iTunes on OS X has a much better user experience in terms of speed and fluency.

    Apple Music for Android can be downloaded for free from this Google Play store link.

      It seems to enable previous iTunes music purchases to be downloaded, but does that require a subscription to utilize?

      The most obvious question I had since it was announced still remains unanswered with this article. Does it work as a music player for offline music like Apple Music for iPhone? Can I finally play my lossless ALAC files from iTunes?
