Apple Music 2.0 for Android brings iOS 10 style interface, integrated lyrics & more

Apple today pushed a major update to the Apple Music client for Android. Available on Google’s Play Store for free, the app has been bumped from version 1.2.1 to 2.0 and now features a refreshed user interface that mimics iOS 10 styling that should bring greater clarity and simplicity.

Aside from the facelift, the software comes with half a dozen new features including the consolidated For You, Library, Browse and Radio sections, a Now Playing screen with integrated lyrics, and more.

Featuring bold headings, a comprehensive Library view, iOS typography, a Now Playing screen redesigned top to bottom with iOS 10-style cards and other perks, you’d be hard-pressed to distinguish it from its iPhone counterpart.

The two things that give it away: Android’s status bar and the hamburger menu.

The app is rated three and a half stars based on feedback from nearly 150,000 users.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Search among millions of songs in the vast Apple Music catalog.
  • Add your favorite music to your Library and download to listen offline.
  • Explore thousands of playlists in any genre, for any activity, handpicked by music experts.
  • Get recommendations for playlists and albums based on the music you love.
  • Dial in to dozens of radio stations, for any mood—and with unlimited skips.
  • Hear the world’s best artists & DJs broadcasting on Beats 1, live or on-demand.
  • Availability and features may vary by country.
  • Membership automatically renews after trial.

The app requires Android 4.3 and up and has seen 10-50 million installs on Android.

New members can try Apple Music for 30 days without having their credit card charged.
