How to Cast Apple Music to Google Home
When you’re in the groove, nothing beats immersing yourself in your favorite tunes. But what if you’re an Apple Music subscriber and have a Google Home device? How do you bridge these two ecosystems? Well, I’m here to guide you through this process.
Despite the fact that Apple Music isn’t natively supported on Google Home, there’s a workaround to get your tunes flowing seamlessly. You’ll need a bit of tech savvy to navigate things like Bluetooth settings and pairing modes, but don’t worry—I’ll break it down in simple steps for you.
By the end of this journey, we’ll have your Apple Music tunes filling up your living space via Google Home. Let’s not wait any longer—allow me to show you how it’s done!
Compatibility Between Apple Music and Google Home
Let’s dive into the compatibility of Apple Music with Google Home. You might be wondering, “Can I play my favorite tracks from Apple Music on my Google Home device?” The answer is a resounding yes! But it wasn’t always this way.
Before we delve deeper, let me take you on a short trip down memory lane. It was only in 2019 that the tech giant Google extended native support for Apple Music to its smart speakers and displays. Before that, jamming out to your beloved playlists via these devices was a dream unfulfilled for many.
Now, fast forward to today’s tech landscape where things have changed quite dramatically. Once you’ve linked your Apple Music account with your Google Home device, streaming music becomes as easy as pie! However, it’s important to note that this feature is currently available only in certain countries such as United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany and Japan.
But what does this mean for the average user? Well for one thing, the integration has opened up an array of possibilities like controlling playback using voice commands through Google Assistant. Picture yourself cooking or working around the house while commanding your Google Home to play a specific song or playlist from your extensive Apple Music library – pretty neat right?
I can’t stress enough how crucial it is to ensure both devices are running on their latest firmware versions. This helps avoid any unexpected hiccups during setup or usage. Here’s another juicy tidbit – despite being competitors in various fields, both companies have shown keen interest in enhancing cross-compatibility of their services which undoubtedly benefits us users!
How to Set Up Apple Music on Google Home
If you’re a fan of Apple Music and own a Google Home, I’ve got some good news for you. It’s possible to cast your favorite tunes from Apple Music to your Google Home – and I’m here to guide you through the process.
First things first, we’ll need to link your Apple Music account with your Google Home. To do this, open the ‘Google Home’ app on your phone or tablet. Once there, hit the ‘+’ icon located in the top left corner; this will lead you into a ‘Set up device’ screen. Here, select the ‘Have something already set up?’ option.
Next comes an extensive list of available music services that can be linked with Google Home; among these options, you’ll find ‘Apple Music’. Tap it and then tap ‘Link Account’. This action prompts sign-in window where you’ll enter your Apple ID credentials. Once done, click ‘Allow’ for granting access permissions required by Google Home.
Now that we’ve successfully linked both accounts – all is set! But how exactly do we control playback? Here are some phrases:
- “Hey Google, play [song/artist/album] on Apple Music.”
- “Hey Google, skip this song.”
- “Hey Google, turn it down.”
Remember though not all features supported by Siri (like adding songs to library) are available when using voice commands with Google Assistant. However most basic functions work seamlessly.
There’s no denying casting music from different platforms might seem daunting at first but once mastered it’s as simple as pie! So go ahead – give it a whirl and enjoy limitless music streaming from your Apple Music account via the comfort of your beloved Google home.
