Google Home Smart Speakers could integrate Apple’s music service very soon. At least that’s what you can intuit after seeing Apple Music appear in Google Home’s iOS app. Although it is not yet possible to link them, everything suggests that it will be a matter of days.
The arrival, although necessary, is curious, as it assumes that the loudspeaker Mountain View will host one of its main rivals in the industry. At the moment, it is not known when the option will appear in the Android app.
Spotify, Google Play Music and now Apple Music
In addition to native services such as Google Play Music or YouTube, Google’s Smart Speaker allows you to use other streaming music services such as Spotify, Deezer or Pandora. The user only has to choose a default option to listen to music. And to all of them, it seems that Apple Music will be added soon.
Thus, in the Spanish app of Google Home for iOS has appeared the option to play music through Apple Music, as Applesfera has been able to verify. Although it is not yet possible to activate it, it seems that it will be a matter of time and once you do, it will be possible to choose this music service by default.
At the moment it is not known when this option will arrive for Android, although the movement of Apple first choosing its own ecosystem seems logical. However, it is expected to be released on Android in the near future.
Although Google is one of the intelligent loudspeakers of reference along with Amazon Echo, the arrival of Apple Music comes months after its main competitor, despite being the smart loudspeakers that sell the most. In fact, Apple Music arrived in Echo in November last year.
It was all a mistake: Apple Music stays with Google Assistant
If you had had illusions and thought that the arrival of Apple Music to Google Home was imminent, nothing could be further from the truth. Google has clarified that the appearance of the music service of the Cupertino, Apple Music, in the app of Google Home was due to an error and is not expected to arrive.
Thus, as explained the parent company of Google, Alphabet, Apple Music is only available to users of Google Assistant on mobile devices. In addition, they insist, the company has no plans to add new music services to Google Home.
