Apple Music is now available for Android

It's been just over four months since Apple launched its 'revolutionary' new music platform, and it seems to have got off to a pretty solid start. A couple of weeks back, the company's CEO Tim Cook revealed that it had already signed up 6.5 million subscribers - but the potential to grow its user base has increased considerably today, with the launch of Apple Music on Android.

Apple's Eddy Cue told TechCrunch that the service is launching today in every market in which the iOS version is currently available, with the exception of China, which will see a launch 'very soon'.

As on iOS, Apple Music on Android also comes with a free three-month trial; after that, users can sign up to a paid monthly subscription, or if they decide that it's not for them, they can walk away without paying a penny.

The app is being released on Android as a beta for now, and you'll need a device running OS version 4.3 Jelly Bean or newer to be able to install it. As you would expect, the app can also connect to your Apple ID, allowing existing users to access their iOS music libraries on their Android device.

However, the fact that this is a beta means that certain features from the iOS version aren't yet available in the Android release, including music video support.
