Apple normally doesn’t make apps for Android but given that it operates a music streaming service that dreams of overtaking Spotify, it had to release an app for its rival platform. Apple Music has been in public beta ever since it landed on Android many months go but the app has finally exited the beta period. Apple Music was released for Android back in November last year.

Apple Music came into being after the company acquired Beats Music and rolled that service into its own. It was released back in June 2015 and in November an app was released in public beta for Android.

Since then, Apple has made many improvements and changes to the app itself. It has added Android-only features to the app and brought it up to par with its iOS counterpart. The latest minor update brings equalizer settings and also removes the beta status of this application.

Given that it’s an Android app, it does have a few features that the company can not provide on iOS. For example, Apple Music for Android provides a home screen widget for easy control of playback while home screen widgets are not a thing on iOS.

The latest version of Apple Music is live now and available for download via the Google Play Store.
