At the beginning of this month, Google announced the launch of the new version of Google Maps which, among all its new features, came out with a music player integrated into the application itself. Now, the latest Waze beta version launched for both iOS and Android operating systems and includes a built-in music player with support for a total of eight different services.
As confirmed by the Waze team, the built-in player available in the new Waze beta application will work with Spotify, Deezer, iHeart Radio, NPR One, Pandora, Scribd, Stitcher, and TuneIn. However, not all the before-mentioned platforms are compatible with both iOS and Android operating systems.
To enjoy the new feature all you have to do is to connect one of the before-mentioned services to the Waze new built-in music player.
Waze app implemented a music player that supports eight music streaming services
Thanks to the integration of the new built-in music player in the Waze app, the users of the application will now be able to enjoy their favorite songs, podcasts or audiobooks without leaving aside the potential of the application’s navigation system, which will continue to show addresses and alerts.
As impressive as this new feature is, unfortunately, Apple Music or Google Play Music users will not be able to take advantage of the new Waze feature, at least for the time being.
At this point, keep in mind the new feature is only available within the Waze beta version, recently rolled out for both iOS and Android operating systems. That means that the new functionality is still under testing, but, if everything goes alright, it won’t take long until we’ll see the Waze built-in music player available in the full version. Also, Waze confirmed that the new feature would be released in the upcoming weeks.
