Apple Music for Android updated with iOS 14 improvements

The release of iOS 14 a few months ago, which has already been released for iPhone users in the UK, means that Apple also updates its apps. One of them is Apple Music, which now updates to version 3.4 and introduces the improvements of iOS 14, also in its version for Android phones.

The music streaming app, rival to Spotify or YouTube Music, thus gets several new features. A new icon, enhanced search, autoplay or a new section called Listen Now are some of the new features that come to Apple Music for Android, which is already being deployed in the Play Store.

Here's what's new on Apple Music

When you open this new version of Apple Music on Android, you'll see that the app has changed its icon, with a less saturated red hue in this case. Also, the status bar has been changed as well, making it better integrated into the app theme. The bottom bar has undergone some changes, as a new section called Listen Now arrives, replacing the For You tab. Although in this section we find the same, music suggestions that we might like.

Search is another change in the app, which now places the search icon at the bottom of the screen. When searching, the application suggests a series of categories, in case we are not looking for something concrete, but want to discover music in a certain genre, for example. The app also changes its settings, with easier options to manage mobile data usage.

When it comes to playing music, in the tab where you can see what we are playing, the background of it is now generated based on the colours of the disc cover that we are listening to. Apple Music has also changed the Queue feature, as there is now an autoplay feature, which will continue to play music when you're done playing a disc, song, or playlist. If you want to add songs you're listening to your stories on social media (Instagram, Snapchat, or Facebook), it's possible in the Share Song option.

This new version of the app, at number 3.4, has already begun its deployment stably in the Play Store, after a few weeks in beta form. If you use the app on your Android phone, this version may already be available, otherwise, it will reach all users these days.
