It’s a simple addition; all you can do is control the playback. But the ability to pause, play and skip tracks without actually entering the app is a very Android feature.
If you’re interested, here’s the full changelog:
Add songs from the Apple Music catalog to playlists without having to add it to your library
Redeem gift cards in Settings to renew your membership using iTunes credit
See what’s playing on Beats 1 directly from the Radio tab — without having to tune in
Tap the name of the currently playing song in Now Playing to go to the album
See which songs are most popular on albums in the Apple Music catalog
If you haven’t given Apple Music a shot, new sign-ups are still eligible for a three-month free trial.
