Google Adds Apple Music to Smart Speakers and Displays But Not in Canada
Google has announced on Monday morning Apple Music is now available on its Google Nest and other Assistant-enabled smart speakers.
The problem? Playing Apple Music with Assistant is only available in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and Japan, says Google. Yes, Canada is not on the list of supported countries, just yet.
“Starting today, Apple Music is rolling out to Google Assistant-enabled devices like Nest Audio, Nest Hub Max, Nest Mini, and more. Apple Music subscribers can search and play songs (more than 70 million!), albums and playlists—all ad-free—just by using their voice,” explained Google.
To get started with Apple Music, you’ll need to link your account in the Google Home app. Apple Music can be selected as the default music service. Then, once that’s done you can say something like, “Hey Google, play New Music Daily playlist,” or “Hey Google, play Rap Life playlist.”
Google Assistant will be able to play any specific song, artist or playlist available on Apple Music, plus music based on genre, mood, or activity, along with music from your personal music library.
Support for Apple Music on Google smart speakers and displays should at some point make its way to Canada, but it’s not going to be in 2020 it seems.
