The Apple Music beta app has been updated with a very Android feature: its own widget. After the latest update, you can now control pause, play and skip tracks right from your home screen via the new widget. Apple has also included a heart icon, allowing you to quickly like any track that pops up.
Of course, there are a few other notable tweaks in the latest update, including the ability to redeem gift cards and more. Here’s the full breakdown:
Now you can add songs from the Apple Music catalog to playlists without having to add it to your library. You can also:
Control playback with a widget you can add to your home screen
Redeem gift cards in Settings to renew your membership using iTunes credit
See what’s playing on Beats 1 directly from the Radio tab — without having to tune in
Tap the name of the currently playing song in Now Playing to go to the album
See which songs are most popular on albums in the Apple Music catalog
If you want to give Apple Music on Android a spin, you can grab the app from the Google Play badge above. New users can also give the service a shot with a 3-month free trial.
