Apple Music for Android is updated to version 0.9.11, fixes a couple of issues

The Apple Music for Android app has been updated. Among the issues that Apple needed to fix were ones related to the playback of songs. Android users were missing the first few seconds of songs that were streaming on the app. In addition, albums being added to a playlist were showing up in an unexpected order.

The newly updated version of Apple Music for Android is now available in the Google Play Store. Like those using iOS, Android users can have a free three-month free trial of the streaming music service. After that has expired, individuals can pay $9.99 a month ($4.99 for students). Families with up to six members can pay $14.99 each month. Apple has 15 million paid subscribers to the service, half the number of paid subscribers that Spotify has. The latter is the largest music streaming service and has been around for much longer than the one year that Apple Music has been available for.

The new version of the app is version number 0.9.11. If your Android handset hasn't received the update, you can open the Google Play Store, click on the hamburger menu, click on My apps & games, and look for Apple Music.

It's good but not great yet. Hopefully it'll be much smoother after all the bugs go.

You clearly hate everything Apple why would you use (let along pay) for an apple service? You're just using this article as an opportunity to troll Apple. I know for a fact that it works well on at least couple android devices: Samsung s6 and LG G4.

I don't hate apple. Sometimes I pretend I do just to piss off dumb, weak-minded fanboys (usually apple fanboys). I don't care about brands. If I see a product I like or a service that catches my interest I will buy it or try it. I'm not a fanboy. Usually stupid insecure people close their minds to trying new or different things. I like to think I'm not one of them. I don't have love for a piece of plastic with a circuit board and a manufactured piece of metal covering it like most dumb sheep from both sides. To me phones are just a tool. Some are very nice at being a multipurpose tool, but never to be blinded by it. I have it on the s7 edge and it crashed a few times. Froze a few and has simple memory bugs all over the place, specially when trying to resume playing some songs. I'm sorry but you sound dumber trying to argue with someone that has the actual service on an actual android phone, in their hand, at the moment. Been using it for about two weeks now and the bugs are consistent.

He said some negative thing on an Apple product so he must be lying or trolling.

Exactly lol. Why would we actually believe he has it, when he detests Apple the way he does? I agree Alik, just some troll justification.

I'm just trying to figure out what was the point of bringing up Spotify in this article.

Why waste money if you can download mp3s on your Android for free?

Because some people don't steal.

Some of mp3 files are truly not original from source. Few mp3 are only recorded from source or MV by microphone. So I don't suggest download mp3 from third-party source because you may get worse music quality.

I think of it as convince fee, just like hulu/netflix.
