There was a doubt whether Apple Music going to replace iTunes in the past when the streaming music service was introduced in June this year, but got a good start, with 15 million subscribers on iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices, according to Tim Cook. It was also said that the Apple’s Music service will make its way to Android devices real soon if the company stays true to its word. The app will release eventually, why that? Because here is a sneak peek at what’s going to look like courtesy of Mobilegeeks.de.
Leaked screenshots of the what so called Apple Music app for Android surfaced online that comes with Beats 1 Radio and a recommendations page. The UI is a familiar combination of both Android UI guidelines and Apple Music design elements on iOS. Users can select music to stream to their device on demand.
The version of Android Apple Music app falls in line with its iOS counterpart in terms of design and has the For You, New, Radio, Connect, Playlist and My Music sections. The app maintains Apple’s design for the category views and at the same time looks at home on an Android device, with the familiar action bar and hamburger menu.
Screenshots of the Apple Music Connect, the social network for musicians built into the service, is also included. Beyond radio streaming, Apple Music for Android includes full support for browsing and playing the complete segment. Impressively, Apple has opted to provide some new features that aren’t supported on iOS, such as the ability to change the size of the cache used to store offline music.
The main navigation of Apple Music app has even been moved from an iOS-like tab bar to a more Android-friendly slide-out sidebar. The company hasn’t managed to stick completely to Google’s design guidelines and has injected some of its own style into the app. Like the ‘For Me’ page almost identical mirrors its iOS counterpart. The Settings menu shows the ability to set downloads to occur only over Wi-Fi, and the user can set a limit on local storage used by the app.
Apple has said that the Android version of the app will debut in the fall, with many believing it will arrive next month. The images appear to be legitimate and match up with the design Apple teased during the Apple Music announcement at WWDC this year.
When exactly the app is releasing for the Android? Apple Music will be available for $9.99 per month. It’s the Mac maker’s answer to other music-streaming services, such as Spotify, Pandora and Rdio.
