Apple Music for Android Images Leak Online.

Your wait for Apple Music will soon be over, Android users. LOS ANGELES – Apple is apparently getting ready to release an Android app for its Apple Music subscription service: German mobile enthusiast website Mobile Geeks got its hands on screenshots of the app, and is reporting that Apple is currently conducting a private beta test with select Android users. Months after the streaming music service launched for Apple devices and PCs, several new screenshots have emerged on German tech site Mobile Geeks, fueling speculation that a launch is imminent. The app, as shown in the screenshots, offers largely the same functionality as the iPhone version of Apple Music, including access to Apple’s Beats1 radio service.

This is only the second time that the company has officially released an app for Android, with the first one being a tool to move data from Android phones to iPhones. On Android, it appears you’ll be able to make changes to your settings through this menu (an improvement from iOS, where you need to go through the iPhone/Pad’s settings).

The app by and large looks like the iOS version, but it integrates some Android design conventions, such as the Hamburger menu in the upper right corner. We’re not entirely sure of TechAeris’s rumor-mill track record and there are reasons to question the notion that Apple would perform a beta test in this way, but it doesn’t seem beyond the realm of possibility. Both have access to Apple TV apps, which includes familiar content providers like HBO Now and Netflix, but also unexpected software, like digital discount clothier Gilt Groupe.

Tap it, and you can ask Siri to whisk you away to a specific app, or to recommend a funny show (keeping in mind that your idea of “funny” may not align with Siri’s, although she does use Rotten Tomatoes to determine what’s good), or to fish a specific piece of content out of one of your many streaming options. Apple has stated publicly that its universal search won’t favor iTunes, unlike Fire TV, which appears to display Amazon content first, regardless of whether it’s the cheapest option. Apple is encouraging developers to use on-demand resources, which essentially means that rather than ask users to download an entire app or game, they download only what’s necessary at any given time. As for movies, photos, and music, Apple TV will cache the content you access most frequently so you don’t have to wait forever for to start streaming.

If you plan not just to download a lot of apps and games but also to play them for hours at a time and switch between them frequently, you should get a 64 gigabyte Apple TV just to be safe. Dropping to 32 gigs doesn’t seem like a perilous choice; it’s unlikely that you’ll have to ration space like you would on, say, a 16 gigabyte iPhone. If you like the current Apple TV but wish you could talk to it, or want that genuinely universal search feature, or like the idea of doing more than just watching stuff on your TV (like… buying stuff?), go ahead and get the 32GB model. For less than half the cost of one the fancy new models, you get the same high-definition streaming, a respectable selection of streaming apps, including all the majors like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, Showtime, and more.

There’s also the issue of Apple’s long, long, long-rumored over the top, subscription television service that would let you cut ties with your cable provider for good. That would be a great bonus, but don’t bank on it; plans can change, and if a potential Apple TV cable alternative is a must-have, you’ll be making a gamble that this device will offer it.

That a subscription service may or may not happen could seriously impact your decision, and it’s a question that might take months to resolve, if it ever is.
