It might seem like a sin to use Apple Music on an Android phone, but to be perfectly honest, it's a great alternative to the likes of Spotify, YouTube Music, etc. As part of the v2.6.0 update that's rolling out to the Apple Music app now, you can finally use it in Android Auto.
When you're in Android Auto, you can now tap on the music icon and select Apple Music from the list of available services. All of the controls work just like they do with other music apps in Android Auto, and while this is a feature that's been a long time coming, it's great to see it finally make an appearance.
Also new with v2.6 is the ability to search songs using lyrics, redesigned artist pages, Friends Mixes, and a Top 100 playlist that houses the best 100 songs for the day around the world.
Apple Music costs $9.99/month for one user, $14.99/month for the family plan, and if you're a student, you can grab it for just $4.99/month.
Can you use Apple Music with Google Home / Assistant yet?
Still needs Chromecast support.
Just like the Pixel's iNotch? 😁
Seriously Google? Apple Music is now supported but YouTube Music isn't? Google has so much potential to literally take over the world but they keep missing the mark on the most stupid and simplest of tasks... so frustrating...
The more superior Google Music has been supported since the inception of Android Auto. YouTube music is still, at best a beta.
