Apple Music for Android gets Crossfade feature ahead of iOS
The Listen Now tab replaces the For You tab.
Apple is rolling out an update to Apple Music for Android with a new Listen Now tab, an improved search experience, autoplay feature, and more. The new version has been in beta testing for a while now, as reported by Android Police.
In Apple Music for Android version 3.4, the newly-added Listen Now tab replaces the For You tab from the previous version. There’s a new feature called Crossfade which allows songs to overlap and crossfade for up to 12 seconds. Crossfade isn’t available on Apple Music for iPhone and iPad yet – and that’s a bit surprising.
This update includes Listen Now – an all-new home for Apple Music, an all-new search experience, an enhanced playback experience featuring Autoplay, Crossfade, sharing to Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat Stories, and improved app performance.
The app update also brings social sharing features for Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat Stories, in addition to a security patch. It is now available for Android 5 and later.
