Apple announced earlier this year – and recently reconfirmed – that its Apple Music streaming service will be launching on Android in 2015. Now it seems the service’s beta test may be ready for the wider world ahead of that launch. Members of beta-testing community Betabound have received emails inviting them to apply for the tests.

“We’re excited to invite you to come test Apple Music for Android. If you’re a current Android user that would like to join the beta for the new music streaming service, you won’t want to miss this opportunity,” explained the email. 9 to 5 Mac expressed scepticism in its report, only to have a reader inform it that the company behind Betabound “has been around for over a decade running software/hardware betas… this is a legit company”.

If so, Apple appears to be hitting its timescale for the launch – although to make its end-of-year deadline, any beta would have to be fairly short.
