Apple Music has finally arrived on Google Home smart speakers - with the option to choose Cupertino's streaming service now available alongside the likes of Spotify, Deezer and Pandora.

You need to have an Apple Music subscription, of course, but assuming that's all in place you'll be able to get your tunes running on any Google Assistant-enabled speakers and devices, such as the Nest Audio, Nest Hub Max, Nest Mini, Google Home max and more.

To see the option to add Apple Music, tap the Plus icon from Google Home app homescreen, tap Music and you should see it listed.

The support means that Apple Music subscribers will no longer have to connect to a Google Home speaker using Bluetooth just to play their tunes, with the Assistant able to hook up to a user's library without the help of a tethered device.

So you'll be able to - after changing the default music service in the app - just say things like: "Okay Google, play The Byrds" and you'll be able to stream direct from your Apple Music subscription, just as you can with Spotify on Google Home speakers.

It's a similar move to what happened when Apple Music on Echo speakers went live at the end 2018, with Alexa able to take on the role of a virtual Apple Music DJ.
