Apple Music for Android Is Being Beta Tested, Release Imminent?

Apple is apparently getting ready to release an Android app for its Apple Music subscription service: German mobile enthusiast website Mobile Geeks got its hands on screenshots of the app, and is reporting that Apple is currently conducting a private beta test with select Android users.

The app, as shown in the screenshots, offers largely the same functionality as the iPhone version of Apple Music, including access to Apple’s Beats1 radio service. Apple officially launched Apple Music at the end of June, and promised at the time that it would launch an Android version of the app this fall.

This is only the second time that the company has officially released an app for Android, with the first one being a tool to move data from Android phones to iPhones. However, it’s not totally unprecedented for Apple to make its services available on its competitors’ devices. Apple has long been distributing iTunes for Windows PCs.

Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed a few days ago that Apple Music now has 6.5 million paying subscribers. An additional 8.5 million users are currently enrolled in Apple Music’s three month-long free trial, he said at a Wall Street Journal event.
