Apple Music for Android now has a widget, leaving iOS users swooning.

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.
