Apple Music is apparently all set to reach Google's Android in the coming future as some screenshots have just surfaced online. The service debuted on iOS as a standalone app back in June and is also accessible on Mac OS X running Macs and Windows running PCs.
The leaked screenshots, courtesy MobileGeeks, suggest that Apple Music for Android would have the same music streaming experience that the Cupertino giant had originally provided on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch earlier in the year. The Android counterpart appears to take on services like Google Play Music and Spotify by offering curated playlists. In addition, it is likely to have the same catalogue of over 30 million songs that was previously offered for iOS devices.
The screenshots further suggest that Apple Music for Android integrates Beats 1 radio station to deliver a proprietary 24-hour music listening experience in over 100 countries across the globe. This seems to be a competitive move against internet radio apps like TuneIn. Besides, the app is reported to have an equaliser to let users adjust the sound output, depending on the location such as living room, car and party.
On the interface front, the music streaming app seemingly supports Android UI guidelines and features a sandwich menu that includes all the settings. Apple Music requires an Apple ID, which reportedly has some issues on the Android platform. This, however, appears to be a server-side bug that would be fixed ahead of the official launch.
Apple Music for Android is expected to be formally available through Google Play Store starting November. Meanwhile, a beta test version of the app has been provided through Google Community.
This isn't the first time the iPhone maker is making an app for Android. The company had previously launched a move to the iOS app to make it easy for users to switch from Android to iOS.
