It’s so nice when everyone gets together for the holidays, all the year’s strife is set aside and we all get along despite our differences. Of course, I’m referring to Google and Apple allowing the mingling of their respective ecosystems. In an announcement on The Keyword, the two companies have teamed up to allow Apple Music users to access their library of over 70 million songs directly from Assistant-enabled speakers such as the Nest Audio, Nest Mini, and smart displays.
Apple Music subscribers need only to navigate to the Google Home app and link their Apple account. Then, they can ask their connected speakers to play their favorite playlists, artist, or a specific song. In the Home app, users can set Apple Music as their default streaming service and they’re all set. As with other streaming services, you can stream to your various speaker groups and move music from one room to another with just your voice.
This adds to the ever-growing number of natively supported streaming services that work with Google Assistant speakers and it offers a great alternative to those who may have migrated after the unfortunate demise of our beloved Google Play Music. Apple Music support begins rolling out today in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, and Japan.
