Following its announcement at the WWDC in June, Apple has finally officially launched its subscription-based streaming music service Apple Music to the Android platform . The application can be downloaded from Google Play for free.
In this way Apple Music joins other applications from Cupertino’s company such as Move to iOS and the Beats Pill+ app in the Google Play Store.
Apple Music offers access to a comprehensive catalogue of streaming music and song recommendations. Tracks and music videos can be saved for listening and viewing later offline.
Apple Music has already landed on the Google Play Store
Subscription costs for the Android Apple Music app are identical to those for the iOS app. Individual monthly subscription costs $9.99 and family monthly subscription costs $14.99 .
But all Android users will also have the fantastic opportunity to try Apple’s streaming music services for free for three months .
Of course, in Android you can also access the Beats 1 online radio service and the Connect section from which users will have the possibility to learn about artists, photos, songs, albums and playlists.
As our Andro4all partners have informed us, users who subscribed to the old Beats Music will be automatically transferred to Apple Music, and will keep all their playlists and downloaded songs.
Tim Cook already said that Apple Music had 6.5 million subscription users and 8.5 million users in free trial mode. But he added that Apple will not look at these statistics, at least for the first few years.
