Waze is one of the main alternatives to Google Maps (although both applications are from Google). Waze is often updated with new features, and one of the most recent is the possibility to integrate Spotify (among other applications) to control music playback.
Now it's time for YouTube Music, the music streaming service developed by Google to compete against Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal or Deezer. Google, through the official blog of YouTube, has confirmed that the integration between YouTube Music and Waze is already here for subscribers.
Control YouTube Music without leaving Waze
According to YouTube, this function is currently being deployed and will be accessible by those who are subscribed to YouTube Premium and YouTube Premium Music There is no mention of users who opt for the free version, although we have tried to try it and the option, for now, does not appear on iOS or Android.
The function will be available on iOS and Android
Now that we talk about iOS and Android, it should be noted that the integration will be available in both operating systems. It will be enough to update YouTube Music when the new version is deployed. The company has confirmed that it will arrive "soon to all 50 markets in which YouTube Music and Waze are accessible, "so it will be a matter of time.
To be able to control a music app from Waze, you just have to open Waze, display the side menu, press the settings wheel, select "Music" and activate the application in question. At the moment there are only Audiobooks, Castbox, Deezer, iHeartRadio, NPR One, NRJ Radio, Pandora, Scribd, Spotify, Stitcher and TuneIn.
