Last month, a Bloomberg report claimed that Apple is prepping to launch the so-called “Apple One” subscription bundles which will available in different tiers and allow Apple users to bundle their services together for a lower monthly cost.
Today, the latest beta release of the Apple Music app for Android v3.4.0 not only confirms the name “Apple One” but also confirms that Apple Music will indeed be included in Apple’s upcoming subscription bundles (via 9to5Google).
Based on the strings identified in the app, it is clear that Apple One and your existing Apple Music subscription will not overlap, ensuring that users do not double pay.

It also appears likely users will not be able to manage or renew their Apple One subscription from the Android version of the Apple Music app and will instead need to use an iOS, macOS, or tvOS device.
