Apple Music to Get Android Auto Integration in Future Release
Although Apple Music might not be a go-to platform for most Android users, it does come in handy in locations where competing services such as Spotify, Google Play Music and YouTube Music aren't available. Considering that it is called 'Apple Music' it's integration with Android services such as Android Auto, Chromecast, and Google Home is non-existent. It'll be a long time before that happens, but there is still hope for Android Auto, at least. The changelog in the latest Apple Music beta is as follows:
- Search by Lyrics - Use a few of the words to find a song.
- Android Auto - Experience the best of Apple Music in your car.
- New Artist Pages - Start a personalized station of any Artist's music with one tap.
- Friends Mix - Enjoy a playlist features songs your friends played that we think you'll like.
- Performance improvements for Downloads, Library loading, and content playback.
- Various bug fixes.
Apple Music is testing Android Auto integration in its latest beta. To get the update, you need to request access to this Google Groups and, after you're accepted, you can head over to the Play Store beta page and join the program. Alternatively, you can get the APK directly from here. Lastly, you'll have to wait for the beta to roll to your device and after which you'll be able to choose Apple Music as a source in Android Auto and control playback as you do with other music apps.
