Apple’s streaming music service is now available for Google Android, making it one of the first major Android apps released by Apple (one of the others is a “move to iOS” app the company released in September).

Apple Music is a subscription service that lets you stream songs on demand, listen to curated playlists, or tune into live internet radio stations.

Not sure that’s worth paying $10 per month for? New users can sign up for a 3-month free trial.

In addition to streaming music, playlists, and radio stations, Apple Music will let you access any songs you’ve purchased from iTunes. So if you use iTunes on a PC or Mac, the Apple Music Service now gives you a way to access your music collection on an Android device.

Apple Music for Android is launching as beta software, and there are a few rough edges that Apple is still polishing. For example, if you want to sign up for a family membership, you’ll currently need to do it on a Mac or iOS device. If you don’t have one, you’re kind of out of luck.

Music Videos also aren’t yet available, but they’re coming soon.

Or you could just pay the same $10 per month for a subscription to Google Play Music Unlimited and YouTube Red.
