Apple has updated their Music app for Android with some new features, including the ability to save music for offline listening to an SD card.
This is a pretty interesting move for Apple. Expandable storage via microSD card is one of Android’ shining features, and it’s pretty cool to see the company make light of it inside one of their apps like this. And if you think about it, with more and more phones being sold that can hold up to 2TB of data via SD card, Apple Music could allow you to take like 2,000,000 songs offline and listen to them whenever, wherever.
However this is a great new feature that everyone’s happy enough with, Apple didn’t stop there. Along with SD card storage for offline music, the company has also enabled users to search within their music libraries via Composers and Compilations alongside the default Artists, Albums, Songs, Genres, etc. So if you’re looking for that new Beethoven album or if you really need to listen to The Martian soundtrack again, you’re in luck, because now you can find it even quicker.
The app also now allows users to view entire Beats 1 show schedules right on their device, so no more having to haul out your computer or anything anymore to see when Dr Dre’s back on.
This update adds downloading songs to an SD card, so you can now keep more music offline. You can also:
• See the full schedule of Beats 1 shows, making it easy to tune in to your favorite ones.
• Browse My Music by Composers and Compilations, which help you find music your classical albums or movie soundtracks.
Apple Music for Android is available now via the Play Store as a beta. It’s still unclear as to when the app will leave the prerelease stages, but when it does, you can count on MBEDDED to let you know!
