To enable Apple Music on a Google Nest/Home device, a user just needs to head to the Google Home app on iOS/Android and select ‘Settings.’ Under this option, scroll down to ‘Services’ at the bottom and ‘Music’ Next, select ‘Apple Music’ and link your account to the Home app.

After setting up Apple Music with Nest/Home, one will be able to ask Google Assistant to play songs and albums from Apple Music via Google’s smart speakers by default.

“Apple Music subscribers can search and play songs, albums and playlists just by using their voice. Not sure what you want to listen to? You can also use your Google Assistant to play music by genre, mood or activity,” the company added.
