Apple Music on Google Home Was a "bug"
Yesterday an interesting option started appearing inside the Google Home app for iOS showing Apple Music as an option as the default music playback service. Now just a day later Google is saying that was just a bug.
Bloomberg reached out to Alphabet Inc. the parent company for Google who stated this was a bug and that:
“We have nothing to announce regarding updates to Google Home,” Alphabet Spokesperson
Since this story broke, Google has removed this "bug" within their Google Home app. Though it leaves myself and many others wondering how long we have to wait for Apple Music to come to the Google platform.
This "bug" seems less like a bug and more of a leak to me. There is no reason for Google to have the artwork and Apple Music information coded into their app if they have no plans of using it.
For myself, I see this as an early leak, and an official announcement will probably happen in the coming months as Apple works to bring their music streaming service to more platforms outside their own.
