Apple Music beta app available for Android in Google Play Store

A beta version of the Apple Music app for Android is available in the Google Play Store today, making Apple’s subscription music service publicly available on Android devices for the first time. Betabound invited its users to take part in a beta test of the Android app in September, but Apple Music’s appearance in the Google Play store is the first official Android release accessible to the average user. The app still has major limitations, with music video playback still unavailable and an inability to handle family plan sign-ups from within the app. Users can use their family plan account with the Android app, but will need to register for it using a Mac or iOS device until promised fixes for the sign-up process are rolled out to Android, making adoption of the music service a complicated proposition for users who only own PCs and Android devices. The app is free to download, but will require the same subscription as Apple’s in-house app after the three-month trial period for new users expires. The app requires Android 4.3 or up and 29MB of space to install. [via 9to5Mac]
