If you managed to treat yourself to a new Google Nest Audio or Google Nest Mini smart speaker during the Black Friday sales then you’re getting a bonus. Google has just confirmed that the Apple Music streaming service is now coming to these devices meaning you’ll be able to play those Christmas chart-toppers simply by asking Google.

Until now, Apple Music has been missing from these intelligent music makers but that’s now changed.

Starting today, Apple Music is rolling out to Google Assistant-enabled devices including the new Nest Audio, Nest Hub Max, Nest Mini, and more. Apple Music subscribers can search and play songs (more than 70 million!), albums and playlists—all ad-free—just by using their voice.

If you have a Google speaker and Apple Music subscription then it’s pretty simple to get up and running.

To play music from Apple Music, first link your Apple Music account in the Google Home app. You can also select Apple Music as your default music streaming service. Then, all you have to do is say, “Hey Google, play New Music Daily playlist,” or “Hey Google, play Rap Life playlist.”

You can ask Google Assistant to play any specific song, artist or playlist available on Apple Music, and you can play music based on genre, mood, or activity.

You can also play your liked songs from your Apple Music library by saying, “Hey Google, play my songs” or “Hey Google, play my library.” If you have more than one compatible smart speaker or display, you can use our multi-room control feature in the Google Home app or on a Nest smart display to dynamically move your music from one device to the other, and even play music on all of the devices in your home by saying, “Hey Google, play music on all my speakers.”

Google says that Apple Music will begin rolling out today on Nest and other Assistant-enabled smart speakers and displays in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and Japan.

This news comes at a good time for Google speaker fans with the firm recently releasing its new Nest Audio device.

Replacing the ageing the Google Home, the Nest Audio features a new design, much-improved sound and the option to link more speakers together to get your house full of music.
