Is Apple Looking To Expand The Reach Of Its Music Streaming Service Beyond Just Apple Devices?
While Google and Apple are rival through and through, working together can sometimes produce good results. Support for Apple Music can be expected in Google Home devices any time soon.
A MacRumors reader was the first to come across this feature. According to the website, previously, Apple Music was present under the “limited availability” section, whereas, now it is available under “More music services.” While it shows up under the same section as Spotify and Pandora, one cannot actually link it to Google Home just yet.
Neither companies have made any sort of public announcements regarding Apple Music integration to Google Home devices. However, keeping in mind that the Apple Music integration with the Echo devices happened last year, this move is not all that surprising. It looks like Apple is quite focused on expanding its music streaming service. While Amazon is dominating the smart speaker market, Google is not far off.
The reach of Apple’s services division is far more important than the sales of its smart home hardware.
Google’s statement mentions that Apple Music will be made available only for smartphone users and there is no plan for updating the same to Google Home.
