A brand new version of Apple Music was released on April 28 for Android smartphone users. The most significant change that it brings to the table is that Android users can now access music videos within the application. This is a big change because earlier, this feature was exclusively available to Apple hardware only. Along with this, the app has also introduced a "Family Plan," in which the entire family (a maximum of six) can enjoy the services of Apple Music for a monthly subscription of $14.99. Considering the fact that it generally costs $9.99 per month for every individual subscriber, this sounds like a good plan for families all around.
This update comes in after about two months since the last one, which allowed users to store or move downloaded content on to an external SD card. The effort seems to be in line with Apple trying to boost its services in regard to the video content available on Apple Music. In addition to Vice Media's new exclusive documentary series for Apple Music that was released in March, the company might also be working with Dr Dre to launch a fresh TV show through the app. Since Spotify and Google Play has this area covered for Android users, it would be interesting to see how Apple Music's new features are received by the Android crowd.
