Apple Music Classical, Apple’s standalone app dedicated to classical music, is now available on Google Play Store. 

The music streaming app was first launched in the Apple App Store last March giving subscribers access to the world’s largest classical music library with over five million songs and 700 playlists to choose from.  

Like its iOS version, Apple Music Classical for Android also boasts up to 192 kHz/24-bit Hi-Res Lossless audio quality, immersive spacial audio recordings with Dolby Atmos, intuitive browsing features, and even crossfade support – a feature normally only supported by Mac devices.

After Apple acquired the streaming service Primephonic in 2021, it planned to launch an app dedicated to classical music in late 2022, but due to a few missed targets, it was not able to until early this year.  

The app’s roll out on Android comes as a surprise to many, as the app remains unavailable on both the iPad and Mac. However, reports say this is because a Primephonic app optimized for those devices is already available, and the new Apple Music Classical is slated to replace it. 

Apple Music Classical is one of the few Apple apps available on Android via Google Play Store. Sharing the space are Apple Music, Apple TV, Move to iOS, and Beats.
