Slowly but steadily, Apple is acknowledging the vast strength of Android users. The company has introduced a new widget in the Apple Music App on the Android platform.
Apple’s new update on the Android app comes with a new widget on the Home screen that lets users add music, control playback, skip current track, like the music, and go back to the last track without even having to launch the app.
Moreover, the update comes with a handful of new features – without tuning in, you can see what’s playing on Beats 1 directly from the Radio tab, or you can switch to the album through the current track in Now Playing and view the most popular music in Apple Music catalog. Apple is also letting users redeem iTunes gift cards from the settings menu to renew subscriptions.
More than one-third of smartphones are powered by the Android operating system, and Apple is taking advantage of Android strengths. Apple has more than 30 million songs in the Apple Music library, and new subscribers get a three-month free trial – that means a little bit of iOS experience on Android devices.
You can avail the new update from the Google Play store to get the new features and redeem gift cards.
