New Apple Music Android beta brings Spatial Audio

At last, Android users of Apple Music can now enjoy the exceptional features of Spatial Audio and Lossless Audio with the latest beta.

Last week, during its WWDC event, Apple unveiled the highly anticipated audio features for Apple Music. Now the recent Android beta of the app has enabled them for those using non-iOS devices.

Apple Music on Android gets Spatial Audio.

According to a recent report, the iPhone-maker added the support for Spatial and Lossless Audio on the recent Apple Music beta.

“In this update, ‌Apple Music‌ adds spatial listening on compatible devices, with thousands of tracks in Dolby Atmos available at launch.”

Apart from that, there’s the Lossless option as well that gives the listeners an incomparable experience. It provides high-resolution sound quality at an increased bit rate.

In the Settings, now there is a new “Audio Quality” sub-menu. It can enable Lossless Audio, and users can also select between different tiers where applicable.

Apple Music beta 3.6 for Android also includes automatic crossfade along with library in-line search function improvements.

However, there’s one thing to note: Lossless Audio consumes a lot of data since it preserves the original quality of any track.

For example, if you have 10 GB of space, you can generally store approximately 3,000 songs at a higher quality. But when Lossless Audio is enabled, you can only store around 1,000 tracks.

In the case of listening to very hi-res lossless tracks, you can only save just 200 files.

Upcoming Apple announcements and events

Meanwhile, the California tech giant is currently busy with its slate for this calendar. Similar to 2020, it is trying to maintain the flow of record-breaking profit despite an ongoing major pandemic.

After revealing iOS 15 and some of its fantastic new additions, the company is working on the second half of 2021. It will witness a significant upgrade for the Apple Watch with Series 7. It’s expected to have lots of new health-based functionalities.

A new generation of AirPods is also reportedly coming soon, according to industry insiders. However, the news is yet to become official.

The biggest attraction of the year, undoubtedly, will be the upcoming iPhone 13 line-up. Since the launch of the iPhone 12 models, the next generation of Apple’s smartphones has generated a massive buzz on the internet.

While some leaks hint towards a reduced notch and option for 1TB storage, others claim a Touch ID return.
