Apple Music arrives on Google Nest (Google)


Google first announced that support for Apple Music was coming to Google Nest smart speakers and smart displays back in December 2020. However, at the time, the company had rolled out this feature to Google Nest smart speakers and smart display users in the US, UK, France, Germany and Japan. Now, a year later, Google is making this feature available in more countries across the globe including India. Additionally, support for Apple Music on Google Nest smart speakers and smart displays is also arriving in Canada, Australia, South Korea, and Mexico.

For the uninitiated, Google Nest smart displays and smart speakers enable users to play music and podcasts from various services including, YouTube, YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, and Gaana, JioSaavn and Wynk Music in India. However, for the longest time, the devices didn’t feature support for Apple’s music streaming service. But that changed last year when Google and Apple worked out their differences to roll out the feature on Google’s smart speakers and displays. However, the feature was available in select countries at the time. Now, Google is making this feature available in more countries, including India.
