Apple today updated its Apple Music app for Android to version 1.0.0, officially dropping the app's beta status and announcing its full release. Apple Music is one of the first Apple-branded apps that Apple has brought to Android devices.

First introduced in November of 2015, Apple Music for Android made the Apple Music platform available on Android-based smartphones and tablets for the first time. When the app initially launched, Apple iTunes chief Eddy Cue said Apple wanted to bring Apple Music to "everyone in the world" and let people enjoy music "no matter where you were and what products you were using."

Over the course of the beta testing period, Apple added a handful of new features to the app to bring it in line with the iOS app, including support for music videos, family billing plans, a home screen widget, saving songs to an SD card, and more. Apple Music for Android and Apple Music for iOS now share many of the same features, so the music listening experience is the same across multiple platforms. Today's update, in addition to removing Apple Music for Android's beta status, also includes minor performance and stability improvements.

Apple Music is now available on Android. Thank you for your feedback during the beta period.

This update includes equalizer settings and a variety of performance, playback, and stability improvements.

Apple Music for Android is available from the Google Play Store for free. Customers who are new to Apple Music can sign up for a three-month free trial to test out the service.

I still buy CDs as I generally like something physical when I buy something (old school). I rip them to my mac book pro via cd drive (old school) and then save them to a 200gb memory card in my S7 (new school). I don't want to rely on an Internet connection to listen to music. Tim Cook must hate people like me.

I’ll carry on paying $0 to listen to my music library until I die.

The day iMessage comes to Android, is the day I make an iPhone-only messaging App.

Then what?

Tim Cook doesn't hate people like you, people like you cost too much in advertising dollars to be "educated".

If you tried Apple Music, you would never go back to that.
Why would I? I have tried apple music, tidal and Google and they are not for me. I like owning a physical item which I am free to share with friends and to play on any music system that allows my taste in music. I can rip, burn or copy to any format I choose. I love modern technology but I love music more, I love cd artwork even more, I love having a physical album even more than that. It is about freedom not about brands or marketing. When I was with Apple Music they were telling me to listen to Taylor Swift... Every day... No thanks!

Funny thing is Apple doesn't even allow apps labeled as Betas on the App Store...
