Apple has launched its new classical music app Apple Music Classical on Google Play Store allowing Android users to access its catalogue of more than 5 million tracks, as reported by 9to5Mac.

After acquiring classical music streaming service Primephonic in 2021, the iPhone-maker said at the time that it would integrate it into Apple Music and launch a standalone app dedicated to classical music lovers. Despite its promise to launch it in 2022, the company launched the long awaited app on iOS on March 28 this year.

Nearly two months after that, the Apple Music Classical app has now been made available on Google’s Play Store, but note that Android users will be required to have an Apple Music or Apple One subscription in order to use it.

Apple says that the Android app, of which the interface looks quite similar to the iOS version, will allow users to access the world’s largest classical music catalogue and listen to them with the highest audio quality available (up to 24-bit/192 kHz Hi-Res Lossless). In addition to more than 5 million tracks, it also comes with more than 700 playlists curated by classical music experts.

While the iOS and Android apps are here, Apple still hasn’t made the service available for iPad and Mac users yet.

Meanwhile, earlier this month, Apple-owned Shazam reportedly updated its app to add support for the Apple Music Classical service.
