Apple Music for Android tops 10 million downloads
posted by Alan F. / Sep 06, 2016, 2:12 AM
Some time in the last day or so, the number of subscribers to the Android version of Apple Music has risen from a range of 5 million-10 million to a range of 10 million to 20 million users. While this doesn't give us the precise number, it does tell us that Android downloads of the app from the Google Play Store have now exceeded 10 million.
Of course, once the free app is installed, an Android user still has to subscribe to the service. One month is $9.99 (students pay $4.99) and a family with up to six members can pay $14.99. As we told you yesterday, Apple is now offering gift cards for Apple Music. Available from physical Apple Stores and online from eBay, a 3 month subscription is $29.97 which works out to $9.99 a month. At $99, a 12-month gift card saves you 18% bringing the monthly cost down to $8.25.

Tried it months ago on my LG G3... Buggy, laggy, even crashing all the time.... Shame on you Apple, it's a paid app!

Oh is that why millions and millions are downloading the app?? The app must have got terrible reviews from users according to u. But it seems that's not the case. People read reviews before they download it. Specially this being an Apple app android fans can be overly skeptical about the app. But yet it seems it's still successful....lol

I don't think they had any free trial on android, so the question is, how many still have it installed?

I actually tried it and it wasn't that good. The UI is horrendous and I thought Google Play Music was bad, much harder to navigate, but than again the app isn't that great on iPhone either. I'll actually stick to Google Play Music since I get Youtube Red/Music and get to have playback while the screen is locked. Plus despite it's bad UI the radiostations are probably the best out there especially the mood stations.
