It looks like Google is working on a new version of the music player for Android phones. A leaked copy is making the rounds today, and it looks a lot like a scaled down version of the music player found in tablets running Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

The folks at Tech From 10 noticed an updated version of the Android Market on their smartphone, and it allows them to download alpha and beta builds of software — including a new beta version of the Android Music player. It’s described as Music 3.0 and it has an attractive new user interface with new animations and context menus. The app also appears to feature integration with Google’s upcoming online music service — although that feature isn’t yet functional.

Tech From 10 also found new versions of the Gallery 3D photo and video app as well as updated clock and camera apps — but none of these new apps would install properly.

You can find download links for the Music app and other software at Tech For 10. The site also has the installer file for the test version of the Android Market — but you might not want to install it, since the test market won’t let you download any paid apps.
