Apple’s Apps: How To Listen Apple Music On Android Devices
With Apple Music, surprisingly, Apple has created and launched an application for Google Android devices. In fact, the new Apple Music for Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and PC is an interesting service. It combines iTunes Radio, Beats Music, was launched in June 2015. And this fall, it becomes Apple’s App for Android as it arrives on Android phones.
According to some estimates, Apple was shooting for more than one hundred million subscribers prior to the launch of Apple Music. As we know, Apple sold its one billion iOS devices. Even many of those aren’t active today, at least half of them are. Obviously, that gives Apple a nice and solid base to build from.
Now, it makes sense, because as soon as the electronic giant adds Apple’s App for Android, it will gain another billion potential subscribers. This will make it easier to turn Apple Music into a very big cash cow. However, it’s the first time when Apple’s software supports Android. Well, to be more precise, Apple purchased Beats Music and Beats Electronics in 2014. The music app that came along on that occasion was supported on Android. The new Apple Music (or at least the Android version) may evenl use modified code from the Beats Music app.
At the same time, let’s remind you that Google has dozens of apps and services for iOS, which can be used on Macs, iPhones or iPads – Gmail, Google Maps, Drive, Google Play Music… And Apple is taking on Google Now directly with improvements to Siri and Search in iOS 9 (iOS 8 added many previous Android-only widgets and apps to iPhones and iPads). We’ll watch and see if this is Apple Music step is just a one-time deal to get Apple services on Android phones. And we’ll wait and see how many Android users will take Apple up on its new Music service.
