Apple Music Classical App Is Now Available on Android

Following its launch on the iPhone in March, Apple Music Classical standalone app is now available to Android users on the Google Play Store. Apple is making the app available on Android even before it releases on Mac and iPad.

Apple Music Classical is a standalone app for classical music lovers offering lossless audio streaming up to 24-bit/192 kHz. It supports spatial audio with Dolby Atmos and provides access to millions of classical music. Listeners need a subscription to Apple Music or Apple One to access the library.

Apple launched the app on March 28th on the App Store, building it from Primephonic, the classical music service it acquired in 2021. Apart from the huge library of classical music, Apple’s classical music app will also host live streaming performances from classical institutions Apple has partnered with, such as the Berlin Philharmonic, Carnegie Hall, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, Opéra national de Paris, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony, and the Vienna Philharmonic.

When Apple acquired Primephonic in 2021, the Android app disappeared. Releasing an Android version of Apple Music Classical as a replacement makes sense, according to 9to5Mac, since Primephonic was a standalone classical music subscription service. Apple can now optimise the iPhone app for iPad and Mac or release a dedicated app on these platforms.
