Apple Music has been officially announced and previewed during the WWDC that was held in June 2015. A few months later, on November 10, 2016, this application has been released for Android OS. Back then, not many have thought that Apple Music will be so successful on the “rival operating system”, but it seems that today we can clearly say that the application is doing quite well on Android OS.
Apple Music has been downloaded more than 10 million times on the Google Play Store and let’s not forget that there are still two months left until the application will celebrate 1 year since its official launch.
As soon as the Apple Music has been released for Android OS, Apple has slowly added new features while making sure to not neglect its stability. The American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino, California has added the option to save music to SD memory cards for offline listen back in February 2016, support for a home screen widget in March 2016, while the family plan and video playback features have been added in April 2016. Right before the Apple Music BETA has ended, the application has received equalizer settings and stability improvements.
We can say that 10 million downloads is a pretty decent number for a product that has been on the market for about 10 months. However, it’s worth mentioning that there are some applications on the Android store that have been downloaded over 1 billion times. Facebook, Facebook Messenger and Instagram are three of the applications that have been downloaded over 1 billion times.
We can say that Apple Music had about 15 million paying subscribers in June 2016, but it’s not known how many of them are using Android devices.
