Okay, so Apple is known for keeping its walled garden approach with much of its software working only on its own hardware, but some services have managed to jump over that wall. That’s likely because Apple is making a big push into services, and that only makes sense if you can use them on all your devices.

That means you can use the premium Apple Music service on your PC, your Mac, your iOS devices, and also on your Android ones. Sweet.

Yes, you can get Apple Music on your Android phone

It couldn’t be simpler to get Apple Music up and running on your Android device. After all, it’s on the Google Play Store. Just a few seconds of downloading will get you up and running, as long as your device is running Android 5.0 or later.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Open the Google Play Store on your phone or desktop browser and search for Apple Music
  • It’ll be the first result, just make sure you don’t accidentally tap on any of the third-party apps
  • Tap Install on the store page for the Apple Music app

  • Use your Apple ID to sign in (or create a new one)

  • Then pick the subscription plan you want
    • $9.99 for an individual plan, paid monthly
    • $99 for a 12-month individual plan
    • $14.99 for a family plan that gives you six Apple Music accounts
    • $4.99 for a student subscription, paid monthly. You’ll also have to verify your college enrollment
