After compatibility with Amazon's Amazon Echo, Apple Music seems to want to conquer devices with Google Assistant. But this arrival seems too premature, since the service is visible, but not usable.
Already compatible with many music streaming services, Google Assistant seems ready to welcome Apple Music among compatible services. In any case, this suggests that the arrival of the streaming music service in the parameters of the intelligent assistant recently.
Although it is not yet possible to select Apple Music as the main music service, this appearance in the menus of the wizard of Google suggests that this compatibility is imminent.
The streaming service of Apple would become an alternative within Google Assistant, to play songs and playlists of this service by simple voice command. Requests that can be made directly from his smartphone, but also from connected devices using Google's voice assistant, such as Google Home for example.
Faster than music?
At the moment, when trying to associate the Apple Music account with the wizard, nothing happens, not even an error message. This suggests that this interoperability has appeared to the public earlier than expected.
Apple Music is looking for new customers
After announcing its compatibility with Amazon Echo late last year, Apple Music now wants to conquer the Google wizard. A logical conquest for Apple which, in this way, can offer a complete music streaming service to people who do not have an Apple product.
The Cupertino company seems to accelerate its deployment in the field of services. With this broader opening of Apple Music to the public, the rumors of an Apple SVOD service, and even an Apple credit card, it seems that the group is not only relying on the sale of iPhone and Mac for generate income.
For its part, Google Assistant is preparing for several new features at the MWC 2019. On the one hand, it will invite itself in Android Messages and the other a dedicated physical button will appear on many smartphones.
