Apple Music for Android is No Longer in Beta

IMG_20160803_165444771

After almost 10 months of testing and bug reporting, Apple has finally updated their Apple Music app for Android to version 1.0, bringing the music streaming application out of beta stages and ready for mainstream use. There’s also a couple of tweaks here and there found inside the updated app…

For starters, EQ settings can now be found within the Settings panel in Apple Music for Android. However (at least for me), this just takes me to my device’s EQ settings and not ones built into Apple Music itself. This is reminiscent of the iOS application’s EQ settings as they do the same thing. I’m not sure if the app was intended to do this or not, however I’m going with “yes”.

In addition, multiple bug fixes and stability improvements can be found throughout the app as a part of version 1.0. Apple is a bit more specific about which bugs have been patched up in the latest Android app’s release notes.

WHAT’S NEW

  • Apple Music is now available on Android. Thank you for your feedback during the beta period.
  • This update includes equalizer settings and a variety of performance, playback, and stability improvements.

Thanks to the beta stages of Apple Music for Android, Apple brought Android users the ability to store offline music on an SD card, add a playback widget to their home screens, make videos viewable right inside the app, numerous bug fixes, and more. Now that the first official release is upon us, it’ll be interesting to see what else Apple does to please their opposite party.
