Apple Music is coming to Google Home, as indicated by Google’s very own iOS application for managing its smart speakers. A MacRumors reader first saw that the Google Home application now lists Apple Music as a service that can be integrated, in spite of the fact that the ability is as of now non-functional.
This wouldn’t be much of a surprise, given that Apple Music came to Amazon’s Alexa-powered Echo gadgets toward the end of last year. Apple likewise reported at last month’s CES that it would build AirPlay and iTunes support into a wide range of TVs to be released in 2019.
Services are an inexorably vital piece of Apple’s business, and with Apple Music already available on Android, it bodes well for the organization to bring it to as wide a variety of speakers as would be prudent. Not every person needs a HomePod or an Apple TV.
In an announcement released to VentureBeat, a Google representative remarked that “Apple Music is currently available for Google Assistant users on mobile phones. We don’t have anything to declare in regards to updates to Google Home.” Given that the feature evidently appeared in the Google Home app, however, despite everything it appears to be likely that a more official declaration could be forthcoming sooner or later.
