Since launch, Apple’s streaming music has gained traction as a popular service across the two major mobile platforms, but for those on Android it has been lacking some functions. The latest update, rolling out now through Google Play, addresses some of these functions missing from the Android app as well as bringing it in line with the latest iOS update.
Perhaps most noticeable in terms of new functions is the addition of the addition of Android Auto support to the app. The addition of Android Auto is in response to the broad reach of Android Auto, which Google says it’s currently available from more than 50 brands, including top tier manufacturers including Alfa Romeo, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Volvo and coming soon to more the platform can no longer be ignored – even by Apple.
The other additional functionality is an option to search by lyrics (a variant on “what’s that song?”) letting you find that ear-worm you can’t get out of your head, but have no idea what it is, as well as implementing an improved artist page, top 100 and friend mix (sharing a play list) which have also gone live in the update.
Some steady progress for Apple Music on the Android Platform, continuing to keep it in line with the functions of Spotify and
Google PlayYouTube Music.
The update is rolling out now through Google Play, but if you haven’t received that update notification just yet you can grab the lastest file from APK Mirror.
