Google Music 4 and Google+ app from Ice Cream Sandwich leaked

Android Police has come across the Music Player and Google+ app from a build of Ice Cream Sandwich discovered by one of their readers, nicknamed Geek Vundotra, who also happens to be a Verizon employee.

Moving on to the actual apps, as you can see the Music app has received a facelift and looks a lot better. Personally, I’m not a big fan of 3.0 app that’s available for Gingerbread and Honeycomb right now because it looks like it’s trying too hard to look cool. The new app, however, does that effortlessly.

It looks cleaner and more focused. It also dumps the grey/green look for a uniform blue theme. The album art is shown much bigger now than before. The presence of the search key is due to the lack of a physical search button on the Nexus Prime and future ICS devices.

The v2.0 of Google+ app is much simpler in comparison. Just like the current app, it uses a minimalistic and straightforward UI. But there is one notable change in the app. Recently, Google renamed ‘Huddle’ to ‘Messenger’. Apparently, they are not satisfied with that name so they renamed it to ‘Chords’, for reasons best known to Google.

Both the apps can be installed on your device right now. To sideload the .apk files, hit the source links below.
