Well, that was unexpected: Apple today released the Apple Music app for Android. There’s no mention of this on Apple’s PR page, which adds a certain clandestine flair to the whole thing. Eddy Cue did tweet about it a few minutes ago, though.
The app is labeled as beta, with several features missing or incomplete:
- Music videos are coming soon.
- Family membership sign-ups and upgrades require Mac or iOS.
- Sign-up process to be optimized for Android.
Nothing too important missing here, but these omissions are worth keeping in mind anyway. Also, the way I understand the family membership situation is: you can use the app with a family membership, you just can’t sign up for the membership or upgrade to it from within the app.
