Apple’s music subscription service is now live on Android: The company published an app for Apple Music on the Google Play store Tuesday.

Apple Music’s new Android app is still in beta, and missing a few functions currently available to iOS users. Most notably, music videos aren’t available on the platform yet. Release notes for the app also indicate that sign-ups to some account levels require either a Mac or an iOS device.

Apple launched its music subscription service a little over four months ago. Apple Music offers subscribers a three-month free trial, but it doesn’t have any free tier similar to the way Spotify is offering it to its users. Instead, Apple is using its free Beats1 radio stream as a way to lure in listeners.

Appe Music has more than 6.5 million paying subscribers, according to numbers released by the company last month.
