After a quite stretch of time, Apple Music has finally made the outward appearance on Google Play Store. To put it differently, now Android users can check out why and exactly how does Apple Music catch the attention of so many people in an exceedingly short span of time.
Apple has recently launched their popular music streaming service for Android users. Though, Apple Music has effectively accumulated huge numbers of people but most of them are iOS users. Even so, this is an alternate way to hit the Android users’ focus towards Apple. Regardless, if you know about Apple Music, this is fine. Just download and start using it. But, if you do not know what it is, this post is for you.
What is Apple Music?
Apple Music is a music streaming service that helps users to listen to any music they want. Although, they stated that it is possible to listen to “any” music, but there is a twist. It depends on the subscription. Apple Music is quite similar to Spotify. In fact, some people have already ditched Apple Music after an initial try because they think Spotify is much better and easy to use. However, rest of users think that Apple Music has its class and there is no such issue for new users.
People, who are using Beats music app, can get their playlist and all the history on Apple Music since you can call it as a revamped Beats music app. But, Apple Music is much better than Beats music in terms of features and ease of access.
Apple Music subscriptions
As mentioned before, Apple Music is a subscription based music streaming service, which comes with two different plans. First plan is compatible with individual users and the second plan is for family, which is compatible with up to 6 Apple Music users.
Individual membership costs around $9.99/month and the family plan is priced at $14.99/month. The family plan will be integrated into native Family Sharing of Apple that typically helps iOS users to share iBooks, Apple Store purchases etc. between family members.
Sign up for Apple Music
You can sign up for Apple Music using Apple ID or by creating Apple Music ID. This is recommended to create Apple Music ID since it provides better options and more features like unlimited listening from Apple Music library, offline listening, music suggestions etc.
Apple Music for Android
Now, as you know almost everything about Apple Music, you can get started with this app. Just download Apple Music from Google Play store and sign in or sign up for this. Following that, you can choose your plan. The best part is Apple Music is giving away 3-month free trial to new users.
Apple Music for Android is available for Android 4.3 and later version. However, this is not compatible with Nexus 9 and Nexus 10.
The user interface looks really awesome and there is not any major different between iOS and Android versions. You will get new songs, playlists, My Music etc. along with more than 30 million songs. Apple Music is quite easy to navigate through since all the songs are well categorized. New users will not have any issue to find a particular song according to mode or situation. The play looks pretty cool and some regular yet essential options would be available too. For instance, you will get buttons like play/pause, forward/backward, shuffle, random, repeat, equalizer and more.
As usual the cover would be decorated with the cover photo of the album or movie. In simple words, this is a perfect solution for them, who cannot use Spotify due to country restriction. But, you should also keep it in mind that some features of Apple Music are not available in all the countries across the globe.
