The Future of Apple Music on Google Home



No compatibility for Apple Music on Google Home: the appearance of the streaming service on the app is due to a software bug.

The hopes for the integration of Apple Music in Google Home and, consequently, with the speakers compatible with the service have already been extinguished . The same Big G confirms it: the appearance of the streaming service within the application, found by some users a few days ago, is derived from a software bug .

The story is now well known: a few days ago, some readers of MacRumors found support for Apple Music within the Google Home application , leaving room for various speculations. Many thought that Apple could have made deals with Big G to enable its streaming service to more extensive commands than the current ones in Google Assistant or, again, integration with third-party speakers. In fact, it seems to have been a software error, as specified by Bloomberg:

In detail, a bug would have superimposed the current Google Assistant settings on those of Google Home, making Apple Music mistakenly appear within this latter application. Big G seems to have already solved the problem, reiterating a note already released in the past:

In any case, it is more than obvious that Cupertino is pursuing an expansion policy for its music streaming service. Last December, for example, was launched full compatibility with Alexa the Amazon , as well as the possibility of playing on the speakers of the Echo line. Consequently, it is not excluded that in the future the support can also be guaranteed to all speakers managed by Google Home. All that remains is to wait, consequently, for any updates from the Apple Park company, as well as from the rival - and perhaps future music partner - Google.

Spotify and Apple what is going on with the revenue issue: the question and answer


Spotify opposes the commissions imposed by Apple and submits a complaint to the EU Antitrust Authority. The Cupertino company did not wait for his response.

The relationship between Spotify and Apple is quite tense. The music streaming giant has in fact accused the Cupertino company of abusing its control in the App Store before the EU Antitrust. How? Encouraging Apple Music and damaging rivals including Spotify .

The words of CEO Daniel Ek show that Spotify does not accept that Apple retain 30% of revenues from subscriptions subscribed through the App Store. This tax, said Ek, seems to have been designed to damage the streaming services that compete with Apple Music.

The CEO of Spotify therefore explains that with his Apple policy he would push users to switch to Apple Music , leveraging a more accessible subscription. But are there alternatives?

Spotify therefore asked Apple to be treated in the same way as many other apps on the Appe Store, such as Uber or Deliveroo, which are not subject to the Cupertino company fee and which are not damaged by the same restrictions .

Apple responds to the Spotify allegations
The Apple's response was not long in coming, and it arrived with a long and detailed press release .

The Cupertino giant, to protect its image, responded point by point to the Spotify accusation. On the commission and the alleged limitations Apple declares:

Apple, in the final part of its press release, underlines how important its contribution to Spotify's growth has been over the years:

Spotify to Apple: "monopolist!"
The question and answer between the two parties has now been enriched with a new chapter, the Spotify replica of the Apple press release reported by Variety :

The clash between Spotify and Apple seems to be far from over. But who will come out the winner and what will the decision of the EU Antitrust be? And in the case of Apple's debacle, will there be consequences for its management of the App Store?

One of the most requested features by Apple Music users is Handoff support, which would allow you to start playing a song on Mac and continue listening to it on iPhone (or vice versa) without interruption. To overcome this lack, from today you can download the PlayOff app for iOS and macOS. MOR 101.9 Manila

PlayOff does all this thanks to a client for Mac that can be downloaded for free from the Mac App Store and its app for iOS, available on the App Store for € 2.29 . The app uses the Bluetooth connection and Apple's MusicKit framework to share Apple Music music playback between an iPhone and a Mac .

Once PlayOff is installed on both devices, you will need to perform a simple pairing procedure. Once this is completed, you can use the PlayOff app on iOS to continue playing a song immediately from your Mac . The app also works the other way around, allowing you to continue playing a song from your iPhone on your Mac. DJ Chacha on MOR 101.9

However, there are some limitations on PlayOff, such as the fact that iPhone and Mac must be within Bluetooth range in order to take advantage of the Handoff function. However, this is a fairly relative limit, given that most of the time the user will be near the desk when he needs to transfer the song from Mac to iPhone or vice versa.

For the rest, PlayOff works perfectly and fills one of the gaps in Apple Music. Always listen to DJ Chacha on MOR 101.9

How to take advantage of Apple Music using search feature


An interesting little novelty under the hood for Apple Music. Finally from today also in Italy comes the new search function of a song through the text.

The new feature was launched by Apple a little on the sly, with an activation on the server side, but surely many of you will have noticed in the search tab the appearance of a new message inherent to this new feature of Apple Music.

By pressing the confirmation button, we will be ready to take advantage of this new feature, which is very simple. Still using the Search tab, you can simply insert a portion of the text inside the search field at the top to start searching for the song with the related text, obviously paying attention to select the search on Apple Music if the song was in your library

As you can see everything is really very simple and in just a few minutes the search result will display the song we were looking for among the best results.

Handshake between Amazon and Apple to bring the music streaming service of the bitten apple on devices of the Echo line at home. Starting next month, more precisely from December 17, you can connect the Apple Music account to the application of Alexa and then ask the virtual assistant to start playing a song, an album or a playlist.

You can therefore interact with the AI ​​through voice commands to start listening to one of the ladders curated by the team of Cupertino, dedicated for example to a particular genre (hip-hop, rock, classical and so on) or a period ( 80s). The catalog includes the Beats 1 station broadcasts with interviews and exclusive content. Since this is a premium access mode to the platform (subscription is required), the reproduction takes place without any kind of advertising interruption. Thus, Dave Limp, Senior Vice President of Amazon Devices, emphasizes the importance of the partnership.

Considering that HomePod is not yet available officially in our country, a move of this type makes the device less attractive for those who were waiting for it.

The integration of Apple Music on the Echo line confirms how much Amazon is focusing on support for third-party services to push the spread of its smart speakers, smart displays and Alexa . A vision confirmed by the words of Limp, which refers to the API made available to developers in order to make the most of the potential of the assistant.
