Google has announced in its blog that Apple Music is now available on Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers and displays. The devices that receive the support for Apple’s music streaming service include the Google Nest devices, Assistant-compatible smart speakers, and displays. With this launch, users can now ask Google Assistant on Nest and Assistant-enabled smart speakers and displays to play music on Apple Music. You, of course, need an Apple Music subscription to take advantage of the newly-added feature. The subscription starts at $9.99 per individual.
Starting December 7, Google started rolling out Apple Music to Google Assistant-enabled devices like Nest Audio, Nest Mini, Nest Hub Max, and more. Apple Music subscribers can now search and play ad-free music from over 70 million songs just by using their voice. Here’s what the new integration offers how it works.
Google Nest – Apple Music Working, Availability
To play music on Assistant-enabled smart speakers and displays from Apple Music, you just need to link your Apple Music account in the Google Home app. That’s all. All you then have to do is say voice commands like “Hey Google, play Alan Walker Music playlist,” or “Hey Google, play New Music Daily playlist.” You can ask the Google Assistant to play any playlist, artist, or a specific song from Apple Music, as well as play music based on any genre, mood, or activity. To play your liked songs from your Apple Music library, you can say “Hey Google, play my songs” or “Hey Google, play my library.”
There’s another feature called multi-room control in the Google Home app or on a Nest Smart display that you can use to play music on more than one smart speaker. You can also use this feature to dynamically move your music from one device to another. By saying, “Hey Google, play music on all my speakers,” you can play music on all of the Nest devices in your home.
In terms of availability, Apple Music has begun rolling out on Nest and other Assistant-enabled smart speakers and displays in select countries starting December 7. These countries include the US, UK, France, Germany, and Japan.
