Apple Music for Android finally ends beta tests to get proper release
Not all iFans are radical Android haters, and not everyone who uses a smartphone powered by Google’s hugely popular OS is opposed to everything Apple’s hardware and software engineers have ever created.
While Cupertino didn’t exactly go the extra mile in rapidly spreading the Apple Music love to rival platforms, the audio streaming service made its public Play Store debut back in November as a work-in-progress.
Following nine whole months of beta tests, and more than a year after its iOS-exclusive launch last summer, the Android app is now officially “available”, free of bugs and experimental features, with a polished UI, SD card storage capabilities, a home screen widget, music videos, a “variety of performance, playback, and stability improvements”, as well as equalizer settings.
Why choose this over Google Play Music, Spotify, or even Deezer? In all honesty, there’s not much separating the four, with similarly massive song libraries, almost identical pricing structures, and comparable family subscriptions. At the end of the day, it’s probably a matter of which developing company you prefer to support, and what interface personally appeals to each individual music streamer.
