Apple has added many new features to Apple Music for iOS 17, including a redesigned Now Playing screen and a dedicated section for song credits. However, it hadn’t provided any information about when these features would arrive in its Android app. Luckily for Android users, the iPhone maker has already added those features to its Android app(via 9To5Mac).
The latest beta version of Apple Music for Android (v4.3.0) brings all the key new features that Apple had introduced in the iOS version of the app for the upcoming OS. It has the new Now Playing screen that not only shows animated versions of album artwork but also stretches the cover images to the edges of the screen, making the player look much more immersive than before.
There’s also a section dedicated to song credits. Apart from artists, it shows credits for songwriting, lyrics, production, and engineering, giving users an extended list of people involved in making the song. It even tells you if the song is available in Dolby Atmos and Lossless formats. You can access this section by tapping the three-dot button and choosing the View Credits option.
Apple hasn’t revealed when these new features will land in the stable version of the app. However, the tech giant would mostly release the latest version of the app to the public along with iOS 17, which will arrive next month. If you don’t want to wait until then, you can join the beta program for Apple Music for Android using Google Play Store.
