Some Inconveniences…

The design is the same, but slightly different than iOS

Apple kept much of the same design from the original iOS app but embraced the typical Android layout too. True to Android design, the app has a left slide-out menu where you can jump to different sections. That menu is where you’ll find the For You, New, Radio, Connect, Playlists and My Music tabs.

No Siri

Siri is part of iOS so unfortunately, you cannot use Google Now’s voice commands to control Apple Music.

The Android app is still in beta

Apple released Apple Music on Android with a beta label, indicating that it’s not quite finished and may still have bugs or other problems.
