Apple Music Gets Support for Ok Google in Android Along with Other Features

September 20, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Apple Music app for all the devices running in Android has just got a new update that makes it more user friendly in the relatively new platform. With the new update, Apple Music will now be handed with additional features including profile creation and support for voice commands.

The app now features a new set of social features that lets users create their own profile within the app. Once created, they will be able to perform a set of options like displaying music activity on their profile so as to let their friends know about the track they are listening to at a moment.

Apart from that Apple Music also gets support for voice commands through Ok Google. You can now say voice commands to start playing specific songs in Apple Music using Ok Google. Apart from that, you can also start Beats 1 radio or search for playlists, albums or artists using voice commands. Apple Music is also experimenting another method of accessing Beats 1 radio and other searches. That’s by long-pressing on your keyboard to access Apple Music. But it’s still experimental, and there’s no word on when it will be available in all versions.

Another addition is the introduction of new widget. The ‘Recently played’ widget for Apple Music can now be enabled on your home screen to start music right from the home screen without entering the app.

Apple Music has been slowly, but subtly updating its Android version ever since its introduction as rival to Google Play and Spotify on Android. The app received an update earlier that upgraded the interface along with features like lyrics viewing and much more. Head to the Google Play page to get the latest version of the app.
