Apple Music will soon work with Android Auto


You’ll also see lyrics searching and the Friends Mix.

Apple Music has been available for Android for most of the service’s existence, but it doesn’t exactly reach deep into the Android ecosystem. You can listen on your phone or tablet, and that’s about it. Apple is opening up ever so slightly, though.

The latest beta version of Apple Music for Android includes support for Android Auto, bringing a native in-car interface to non-iPhone users for the first time. You won’t be browsing the “For You” section from your infotainment screen, but the playback controls you do get are easier and safer than reaching for your phone.

The test version also introduces some features coming to iOS 12 users, including lyrics searching, the Friends Mix and artist pages that let you quickly start personalized stations. There’s no solid indication of when this will be available to all Android users. If you’re willing to live with pre-release code, though, you can apply to join the beta group and downloadthe beta if you get in.
