Apple Music for Android updated with a feature that iPhone users can't have
Available since November, Apple Music for Android today received an update that brings several new things. The most important novelty is the ability to download songs on SD cards, which means you can store more music offline. As you surely know, this is something that can't be done on iPhones, because no iPhone supports external memory cards (of course, there are also plenty of Android handsets that don't have expandable memory).

Another thing that Android users can now do in the Apple Music app is check out the full schedule of Beats 1 radio shows. Moreover, the application now allows you to browse music by composers and compilations.

At the moment, users don't seem to be too happy with what Apple Music for Android is offering. The app is rated 3.3 out of 5 stars in Google Play (usually, well received apps have at least 4 stars).

Apple Music for Android is free to download, and comes with a 3-month free trial that gives you access to more than 30 million songs. After the trial period ends, you can subscribe for $9.99 per month (individual subscription), or $14.99 per month (family of up to six users). Have you tried Apple Music on Android yet?

I just uninstalled Apple Music from my Note 5 yesterday. I'm sure it's better on the iPhone, but it was a bit buggy on my phone. It did get a little better with the more recent updates.

Everyone keeps saying apple is in trouble of becoming the next BB Or Nokia(I don't think so) I believe an sd card slot would get more android users to switch to ios then apple thinks.

It's never going to happen but he it's their loss

Apple will make their own SD cards if at all they change their minds. "Reinventing the SD cards"

They wouldn't even call it an sd card they would make a new name for it, like 3d touch lol.

The Apple music app is pretty good on both iOS/Android
But Apple Music in iTunes is terrible
iTunes is far too bloated, its a mess

I didn't rate it, but it is a buggy and poorly designed app.

It keeps stopping & using data even though it's set to play over WiFi only. Even music downloaded to device uses data. Had to stop background data to ensure it stopped.

Apple being Crapp|e, they'd probably have some DRM stuff on the music files preventing that like they did in iTunes on Windows. However, if that's the case, you could import them into your iTunes library on a PC and re-create the AAC version to remove the DRM nonsense.

That's what I had to do to be able to use my paid iTunes music on my OnePlus One...

Apple could help with the decline of music sales by making iTunes available on multiple mobile Operating Systems. They should make it cross-platform.

you cant take the rating for a apple app serious on google sadly.

HOWEVER that 3.3 isn't too far off, I canceled my google play music subscription when apple music came out because the 3 free months. and MAN i9 was soo app to back to google play music last month. It runs soo much better and the UI is much more friendly then apples.

I could let the bugs slide because it was in beta, but the UI alone was bad and it would do stupid stuff
