Apple Music app on Android can host a widget now

Apple Music

The latest version of Apple Music has brought with it the ability to add widgets to the homescreen, which is something that the iOS version does not come with of course. This updated version is live on the Google Play store right now, and has been equipped with some other interesting traits as well.

The widget on the new version of Apple Music on Android acts like a standard music widget by letting you play, pause and skip tracks with it. Moreover, it even features the ability like a certain song without having to enter the app. But for all other features though, you will be needed to jump into the app.

By default, this widget is 3 x 1 in size, and it cannot be resized. It’s hence that it cannot be centered which is kind of annoying. This Apple Music update has even been laced with the facility to add songs to custom playlists without adding them to the library first.

The new version of Apple Music which comes with a widget can now be grabbed through the Google Play store.
