Apple Music Now Available on Google Nest Speakers in Five Additional Countries

Apple Music is now available to stream on Google Assistant-enabled devices like the Nest Mini and Nest Audio in five more countries, including Australia, Canada, India, Mexico, and South Korea, according to a recently updated Apple support document.

nest supports apple music feature
Apple Music first became available on Nest speakers and displays in the United States, UK, France, Germany, and Japan late last year.

Just like with Siri on the HomePod, Apple Music subscribers can ask Google Assistant to play songs, albums, and playlists, and it's also possible to set Apple Music as the default music service to avoid saying "on Apple Music" for each request.

Apple's support document provides instructions for setting up Apple Music on Nest devices:

Set up Apple Music on your Google Nest device

1. On your iPhone, iPad, or Android device, open the Google Home app.
2. Tap Settings.
3. Tap Music.
4. Under "More music services," tap the Link icon next to Apple Music.
5. Tap Link Account.
6. Sign in with the Apple ID that you use with Apple Music and follow the onscreen steps to complete setup.

Set Apple Music as your default music service

1. On your iPhone, iPad, or Android device, open the Google Home app.
2. Tap Settings.
3. Tap Music.
4. Under "Your music services," select Apple Music.

Google shared more details about this rollout in a blog post first spotted by iPhone in Canada.

So if Apple are now playing nice with Google Nest...

Will Google Nest play nice with Apple in return and adopt HomeKit support for their Thermostats, Cameras, and Doorbells at last?!

I guess this is one reason for Apple Music’s Voice plan.

Try asking your Nest Mini to play one of your own playlists. It doesn’t work for me. It plays a similar sounding playlist from Apple Music. Not the one I created. I’m in Canada.
Yes, I noted this in the old, original thread yesterday - this appears to be set up to only respond to verbal requests to play artists and/or albums. I can't even get it to play an Apple-created playlist (at least, not the ones to which I subscribe in my Apple Music).

Nest? Google Home? Aren't they in the process of killing off the Nest brand?
