    Apple updated the Apple Music app on Android, and changed a handful of things, including a new widget.


    Now, you can have a widget for the app on your homescreen. It's nothing fancy; a 3x1 widget that shows the track info, playback controls, album art, and a like button. The widget is not resizable and I'm not sure if it's just 3x1 on my device or in general but that means it doesn't go from edge to edge and there is a 1x1 space left on the side, which is annoying.

    Other than that, you can now also redeem iTunes Gift Cards in the settings to continue your membership. The Radio tab now shows what is playing on the Beats 1 station without tuning in. You can tap on the name of the currently playing song in Now Playing to go to the album. Lastly, the popular songs in an album now have a star next to them. These are all changes introduced in the Music app on iOS in 9.3 and it's good to see them making their way to the Android app so soon.
