YouTube has today announced in an official blog post that YouTube Premium and Music Premium subscribers can now enjoy their favourite music from directly within the Waze app, without having to switch between the two apps while driving.
Drivers, rejoice! Never worry again about switching between YouTube Music (to listen) and Waze (to navigate). All of the albums, playlists, personalized mixes, and more that fans love to listen to are now available with a couple of quick taps as they navigate to where they need to go.
With YouTube Music and Waze together in one experience, there has never been a more entertaining way to get around.
Subscribers can listen to their favourite music on YouTube while navigating with Waze by following follow these simple steps:
- Download the YouTube Music app for iOS or Android. (You can then signup for a free trial of YouTube Music Premium.)
- Open the Waze app
- Tap the music note icon to select YouTube Music as your audio app, and start enjoying your audio content directly from Waze.
- If you don’t see the music note icon, head to Settings > Audio Player to turn on “Show Audio Player”
The new feature is rolling out starting today in the U.S. and Canada, and will soon be available to all 50 markets where both YouTube Music and Waze are available.
