Apple Music introduced a beta version for archrival Android users on Tuesday, according to an app update in Google Play.
Apple's service streams songs over Internet connections. Like competitors Pandora and Spotify, it includes curated playlists and stations inspired by particular artists and moods. It also connects with users' existing collection of iTunes music and can be controlled with Siri on iPhones.
The newly released Android app, for version 4.3 and up, does not yet include music videos, and family membership sign-ups still require a Mac or Apple's operating system, iOS, as the sign-up process gets optimized for Android, the post said.
