Apple Music now available for Android
An Apple Music app is now available for Android smartphones and tablets via the Google Play Store. New subscribers are entitled to a three-month free trial, after which the service is billed at AUD$11.99 per month. In addition to Apple's library of over 30 million songs, Apple Music gets subscribers access to a selection of hand-curated radio stations including Beats 1, and any existing music in their iCloud library.
At present, Apple has dubbed the app a beta, due to a couple of missing features. These include the ability to watch music videos, and the option to sign up for a family plan.
Android users signing up for Apple Music will require an Apple ID.
Notably, post-paid Telstra customers with Android handsets running Android 4.3 or later are eligible for a free, one year subscription to Apple Music. Further details about redeeming the offer can be found on Telstra's website.
