Apple Music is now compatible with Android Auto

The latest update for the Apple Music app on Android has brought a couple of nifty features to bring the app into line with what the iOS version offers. Apple began beta-testing Android Auto compatibility back in August and thanks to the update; it is now available to everyone who prefers using Apple Music on their Android smartphones instead of rival music services such as Spotify or YouTube Music. 

Besides Android Auto compatibility, the update also brings support for the iOS 12 feature, searching by lyrics, that allows the user to search for songs using song lyrics instead of the artist or song name. The update has also brought the improved artist view that first rolled out to iOS users earlier this month.

Something that may surprise you is that the Apple Music app has gained support for Android Auto before Google’s own YouTube Music service. If you subscribe to Apple Music and prefer Android, let us know what new features you would like to see rolling out to the music streaming app in the future.
