The mapping platform owned by Google has announced the compatibility of Apple Music in its application, which will allow users to play songs, albums or playlists in a much more intuitive and secure way.
The user No more switching between apps to check what’s playing or select a title.
Apple Music is the only music streaming platform that wasn’t already integrated with Waze, at least the only one of the most popular ones. In fact, the app already allows streaming services like Spotify, Youtube music, Amazon Music, tide, Deezer or even content-playing apps that don’t just play music, like Audible or applications of other radios.
The Apple Music integration in Waze allows you to control some basic playback settings from within the GPS app itself, without the need to switch between apps. For example, the user can:
– Pause or resume a song
– Skip to the next track
– Or select random play or repeat.
Apple Music in Waze also shows songs saved to your library or recently played. Of course, Apple Music in Waze also shows the name of the track, as well as the artist.
How you can use Apple Music directly from Waze
Waze has confirmed that the integration with Apple Music is already available from May 24. To enable it, all you have to do is the following:
1. Go to the Waze app and click on the section ‘My Waze’.
2. Then click the button Setting.
3. Press on ‘driving preferences’,
4. Select ‘Playing music’.
