Apple Music will now seamlessly integrate with the Waze navigation app, allowing those who use Waze in the car to access Apple Music content right from within the Waze Audio Player.
Thanks to a direct connection between the apps, you can now access Apple Music content directly from the Waze Audio Player. This includes access to the more than 90 million songs, thousands of curated playlists, Apple Music Radio, and more while you navigate.
“We’re thrilled to join forces with Apple Music to bring Apple Music subscribers their tunes while driving with Waze on iPhone,” says the company in a prepared announcement.
Apple Music marks the latest music partner for Waze: last year, the navigation app announced the addition of Audible to its audio player program. Waze also works with Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, iHeartRadio, YouTube Music, TuneIn, Tidal, Audacy, npr, and Amazon Music (availability may vary by country).
Waze has also announced additional fun voice options recently: last year, the ability for users to switch their car icons to a Meow Mobile or a Woof Wagon with pet-inspired navigation guidance voices. Meanwhile, in April, Wave announced retro modes with navigation guidance inspired by the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s.
An Apple Music subscription is $9.99/mo. per individual or $14.99/mo. for a family subscription in Canada. It is also available at a discount of $4.99/mo. for students and the same price for the voice-only option, which is favourable for the car since it requires exclusive control through Siri. Apple Music comes with a one-month trial. There’s also the option to get Apple Music for a discounted rate as part of an Apple One subscription for multiple Apple services.
Waze is a free app that is available on smartphones, tablets, computers, and in-car navigation through software like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The navigation app has more than 140 million users.
