Apple Music Android app gets rare update to solve bugs

Posted:
in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV
Apple has issued an update to the Android version of Apple Music, fixing two recent problems with the client.




The app should no longer crash when trying to open the Library view, the company said in release notes. Actual playback, meanwhile, should be "more reliable on more devices."

Apple rarely updates the service on Android, presumably focused on its core audience of iPhone, iPad, and iTunes users. This week's patch is actually the second in less than a month though, suggesting that technical issues were serious enough to warrant rush treatment.

The last update introduced music video improvements, such as playlists, background audio, and in-app picture-in-picture.

Apple Music recently crossed 38 million subscribers. It's not known how many of those are on Android versus Apple platforms.

    Apple shouldn't treat the Android version as an afterthought. Giving Android users a pleasant experience, and a taste of superior Apple software, will make the user more willing to look at an iPhone for their next upgrade. If it's buggy, any negative ideas they had about Apple are just reinforced.
