Apple Music has finally landed on Android on Tuesday, Nov. 10. Can Apple manage to entice Android users to try out its music streaming service?

In an Interview of TechCrunch with Eddy Cue of Apple, he admits that one of the biggest challenges of unveiling Apple Music on Android is to convince Android users to give the app a chance.

"One of the things is that we obviously don't know a lot of these Android customers and we're excited to hear what they'd like us to go do," says Cue.

He goes on to say that the fun part, however, is bringing its app to several people.

"We hope customers will try it out and make a judgment based on how it is," he adds.

Apple Music is Apple's very first real Android App. Its other apps include a migration tool and Beats' products; however these are not Apple-branded. He says the company really tried hard to produce a great app for Android. Cue says Apple tried to make Apple Music's interface look and feel like an Android app.

Perhaps what sets Apple Music apart from its archrivals Spotify and YouTube Red are the app's Beats 1 Radio and curated playlists and recommendations.

It is worth noting that the app is available in every single region that Apple Music presently serves, except for China, which will be launching in the near future.

Almost all the functionalities of Apple Music have been made available on the Android beta version. These include Connect, Beats 1 and custom music suggestions. The features which have not yet made the jump include the music videos and capability to sign up for the service's family plan.

In the meantime, an Apple ID will still be needed to sign up. Existing subscribers can still use their account to synchronize every song that they've already set up on iTunes. Apple, however, is already working on simplifying the sign-up process for those who do not have Apple IDs.

Interestingly, if users pay for the Apple Music subscription in the Android application, Google will get a 30 percent chunk of the fee.

In June 30, this music streaming service was first launched for iOS users. On its home turf, Apple Music comes packed with a handful of amazing features, including curated playlists (playlists that are created based on users' preferences) and Beats 1 (the company's live radio station).
