Today is the day. Apple has just released their popular music streaming service to Android. Starting today you can get in on the with a free 3 month trial period. The app is designed with Android design language in mind, but it’s also very clearly influenced by iOS. Many of the same features from iOS are seen here as well and you will be able to access purchased iTunes music through this new application, something we’ve been waiting for for a long time now.
The application is currently in beta so not all of the features from iOS are available just yet.

- Music videos are coming soon.
- Sign-ups and upgrades to Family memberships require Mac or iOS.
