  • Apple Music is now available on Google Nest in more countries.
  • Australia, Canada, India, Mexico, and South Korea are now on the list.

Apple Music is now available on Google Nest in five more countries, namely, Australia, Canada, India, Mexico, and South Korea.

Apple's support document on the matter now states (opens in new tab):

Apple Music on a Google Nest speaker or display is available only in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

As you might expect this feature lets Apple Music customers play songs using a Google Nest speaker or display, and requires an Apple Music Subscription as well as an iPhone, iPad, or Android device linked to Google Home and a Google account connected to that Nest device.

This week it emerged that Apple Music's Siri-only voice plan is coming to iOS 15 in the .2 update that was released as a beta this week.

The subscription tier will let users play any song on Apple Music using only Siri, and you can even sign up for the service using Siri. From Apple:

Users can subscribe to the Apple Music Voice Plan through Siri by saying "Hey Siri, start my Apple Music Voice trial," or by signing up through the Apple Music app. Once subscribed to the Apple Music Voice Plan, users can request music be played across all of their Siri-enabled devices, including HomePod mini, AirPods, iPhone, or any other Apple device, and when using CarPlay.

Apple Music voice Plan will be available in 17 countries on launch including Australia, Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
