Apple's SVP of Internet software and services, Eddy Cue says that they are trying to simplify the sign-up process, so the use of Apple ID is not needed.

As the app is in beta, some of the features will not be available. It doesn't feature music videos, but is expected to arrive soon and users can opt only for the individual plan and not the family plan within the app. If they wish to sign up for family plan, that can be done only through desktop or iOS device.

Apple first announced that Apple Music would be coming to Android back in June during its Developer Conference. Recently, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Apple Music has 6.5 million paying customers, with 8.5 million users in a trial period.

Interestingly, Apple Music is the first proper app launched by Apple for Android. The company has launched 'Move to iOS' Android app in September but the app turned out to be merely a re-branded version of an existing app, that offered similar features developed by the same team.
