Google announced Monday that owners of Nest devices, speakers and other smart displays that use the Google digital assistant will be able to use Apple Music subscriptions on those devices for the first time.

The American tech giant said in its blog that its devices that support Google Assistant (for example, Nest Audio, Nest Hub Max, Nest Mini, etc.) will start supporting Apple Music services as of today. .

The move will take place before the holidays begin, so that Apple Music subscribers can listen to more than 70 million songs in addition to the albums and playlists hosted by the service.

To enable Apple Music on the device, users need to link their Apple Music account to the Google Home app, then set Apple Music as the default music streaming service. Once activated, users can periodically submit assistant requests to access their music.

This also includes the ability to play songs, artists, and user-created playlists, as well as songs created by Apple, to suit genres, moods, and activities. You can also play users' favorite songs and add them to their Apple Music library.

Support has also been expanded to include Google Home's multi-room control feature, which allows you to play music on multiple devices around the home or transfer music from one location to another.

It's worth noting that support for Apple Music with Nest devices began with digital assistants, speakers, and other smart displays that were introduced in the US, UK, France, and US. Germany and Japan. It connects many other music services that can be accessed through Google Speakers, including Spotify, Deezer, Pandora, TuneIn, and YouTube Music.

The addition of Apple Music to the Google ecosystem comes long after Amazon took a similar step and integrated it into their Echo speakers a few years ago.
