Apple Music app soon to receive dark mode on Android devices

Apple Music app soon to receive dark mode on Android devices
Unlike Google, Apple is a bit slower when it comes to adding dark mode to its Android apps, but that's quite understandable. If you happen to use Apple Music on your Android smartphone, you'll be pleased to know that an upcoming update will bring the long-awaited dark mode.

If you want to try it out before Apple makes it available to everyone, you can install the beta version of the app via the Play Store. The guys at 9to5mac have recently spotted a new update to Apple Music beta, which adds not only a dark theme but also several features from iOS 13.

Apart from dark mode, the update will also add the redesigned Now Playing UI and time-synced lyrics, which lets users follow along with their favorite music as it plays. The time-synced lyrics feature comes with appealing animations to make following along more fun, as well as some gesture controls that will allow you to jump to your favorite verse.

Apple hasn't yet committed to a release date for this update, but there's a high chance that the new update will be pushed out around the same time Apple releases iOS 13 in the fall.

Who with an Android phone has Apple Music installed? You would have to be crazy when Google Music and Spotify offer far and away more for the same price.

I have a Huawei P30 Pro with Apple Music installed. Plenty of us. Often times albums and singles come out first on Apple Music and also the Music documentaries are awesome.

Millions of people, Apple music downloads are over 10 million. Also Apple music offers 40% more music than spotify (i bet you didn't knew this) So i dont know what you mean by offering far more.

There are lots of people that are fine with the average experience apple music brings in comparison, but you're right, for value, there are far better options.

it has lot of 1 star ratings from bitter insecure android boys. Those 1 star ratings came right away when the app launched for android. It's really silly and sad. There was even news about this "Android users’ most hilariously angry one-star Apple Music reviews" Apple music is actually best rated Apple app in Play Store.

Good thing apple still update their android apps. Apple offers more music than spotify. With their family sharing plan, its a great value. No ads ever
