There was a time when Apple's music service only worked on Apple products. Thankfully, those days are long gone, as Apple has made Apple Music available to Amazon Echo users, after also making it available on Google Home and Nest speaker and display .
If you are an Apple Music subscriber, you can now play over 100 million songs from the entire Apple Music catalog on your Google smart home device. If you want to, here we will show you how to enjoy Apple Music on Google Home/Google Nest even after you cancel Apple Music subscription.
To play Apple Music on Google Nest and Google Home speakers, you need to link your Apple Music account in the Google Home app.
To play Apple Music on your Google Nest or Home speaker, just say, “Hey Google, play (song name) on Apple Music.”
You can also Set Apple Music as your default music service if you donʼt want to say "on Apple Music" each time you ask Google to play something.
Once it's playing, you can control it manually in the Home app. Just go to the Google Home app's home screen, tap the media toggle and then you can choose to play, pause, skip tracks, adjust the volume or choose to have the music play from another Google Home or Chromecast audio enabled speaker or dongle.
