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.
