To play music from Apple Music on Google Assistant devices, users first need to link their Apple Music account in the Google Home app. It is also possible to select Apple Music as the default music streaming service. Then, users can use voice commands like "Hey Google, play New Music Daily playlist," or "Hey Google, play Rap Life playlist."

From the announcement:

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."

Apple Music is also available on Sonos and Amazon Echo speakers.

I'm not seeing it either. The article did mention the words "rolling out" so hopefully it won't take too long. I'm not seeing an update for the Google Home app in the App Store but it could be updated over-the-air.
When Google says "rolling out" they usually mean in the next few weeks. For me that translates into: as soon as you've forgotten it's available, it'll show up.

Ditched Crapple Music about a year ago and have never looked back. Anyone that listens to Progressive House/Trance/EDM may understand the reason: just because I like a remixed version of a pop or country song, doesn't mean I like pop or country. Crapple Music doesn't understand sub genres or how they relate back to the parent category. It simply just "discovers" garbage you have absolutely no interest in. Spotify understands. :eek:
