Waze just got a handy update that makes it better than ever

One of the best features in Waze is its ability to control your favorite music-streaming apps. Now Apple Music is joining the growing list of supported services (opens in new tab) — but only on iPhone.

Being able to change the tunes you’re listening to without losing sight of the route ahead is a vital feature for any navigation app, and Apple Music was the last really big hold out on Waze. Exactly why it’s taken so long to arrive isn’t clear: Spotify support was added back in 2017, and the likes of Amazon Music, TIDAL, Deezer, TuneIn and Google’s own YouTube Music are all available.

Still, it’s better late than never. Now Apple Music fans can control their favorite tunes, podcasts and Apple Music Radio channels without actually having to leave Waze. The update has started rolling out today, so you might not see it right away. 

But there is one drawback: if you’ve been using Apple Music on your Android phone, you won’t be able to connect the app to Waze. There’s no word if and when this might change in the future.
