A music service is just as good as the places you can use it. And smart speakers live on the music they can give. With that in mind, Apple and Google are creating your music.
It wasn't long ago that Apple Music arrived at Amazon Echo speakers and music subscription services are best when you can use them on all your devices. But Google Home devices have been without an Apple Music option. you have to pay for Spotify, Pandora or Deezer if you want to use anything other than Google's music offerings. But it will change sometime soon.
While Apple and Google have not formally announced a collaboration, an eye-catching reader on MacRumors discovered that the iOS Google Home app listed Apple Music as an alternative. Take a look at the Android app, and you'll see the option there too.
If you tap the Apple Music option, the app asks you to link your account. But clicking on the Link Account option does nothing yet, so this is an ongoing work. Hopefully Google and Apple will hit this soon. Until then, you have to pay for Apple Music on your echo or, if you spent extra, your Homepod.
