You can now listen to Apple Music on Google Assistant enabled smart speakers, competing with Apple’s HomePod and Echo and Alexa devices. Find out more here!
Yesterday Google announced that owners of the Nest Audio, Nest Hub Max, Nest Mini, and others will be able to ask Google Assistant to play their favourite music from Apple Music. Meaning that Apple Music listeners can search through over 70 million songs, playlists and albums just using their voice!
To listen to music from Apple Music, you will need to link your Apple Music account in the Google Home app. You can also select Apple Music as their default music streaming service. Then it’s just a simple, “hey Google”, and you can ask your smart speaker to stick on your favourite sounds.
Since the demise of Google Play Music, many Google smart speaker owners have had to decide where to stream music from. Services like Spotify, Deezer and Pandora have been opted for, as they are already available in the Google Home app. But lots of users chose Apple Music for its convenient iCloud Music Library feature. At Synchedin, we understand the value of a good music library. Which is why we’ve put together playlists of great royalty free music available for download! You can now move the Apple Music party seamlessly from one device to another, using Google’s multi-room control feature. You can even go all out and ask to stream Apple Music on each of your devices at the same time. Simply ask, “Hey Google, play music on all my speakers”, and you’re good to go.
Apple support has begun rolling out to supported devices as of yesterday (07/12/2020) in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and Japan.
