Last year, Apple Inc. at their World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) event brought to the world a ‘Revamped’ iOS mobile OS; the iOS 10 which came with cool new awesome feature; multilingual typing (typing in more than one language), contextual predictions, Home app that lets you turn on lights, unlock doors, and even raise your window shades all at once if you like, adding a personal touch to your messages, and so forth.
And for the music lovers, iOS 10 showed a whole intuitive redesigned music system, which made it easier to enjoy your favorite songs, and you could also view the lyrics and listening to the song at the same time.
Notably, while iPhone users have enjoyed these changes/features for quite some time, looks like Apple decided to roll out an update for its Android Apple music app, and now Android users can now have what they didn’t have before with the revamped app. Android users were introduced to the Apple Music app in November 2015, and recorded over 10 million downloads in September of last year.
Having waited for two years, the update bumps the version to Apple Music v2.0 which has become much faster and simpler than the older version, adds more features like on-screen lyrics, a segregated navigation, more focus on album art, an option to download music to listen to offline, and so forth.
Some online blogs claim that the update makes the Android version look pretty much similar to the iOS version, removing all the material design inspirations.
Here’s the entire changelog:
An all-new design brings greater clarity and simplicity to Apple Music:
- Now Playing. Read lyrics for songs as you listen.
- Library. Navigate your music easily and see the Downloaded Music you can play offline.
- For You. Get recommendations for playlists, albums, and more—based on music you love.
- Browse. Listen to new music first, plus playlists for any mood or activity.
- Radio. Tune in to Beats 1 shows or listen to stations for any genre.
Editor’s Note: Apple Music is available for download on Play Store in case you wanna give it a try, and to those that already have the app, can simply update the app.
