Waze app will provide an option to make YouTube Music as the preferred audio app

A recent report has confirmed that the Waze users will soon be able to listen to tunes through YouTube Music. The users will be able to listen to tunes without switching or leaving the popular driving navigation app, the reports added.

Following the partnership which has taken place on Aug 21, both YouTube Premium and Music Premium users can now choose songs playlists and albums without leaving or switching the driving navigation app Waze. Intended to make life easier for users of both platforms, the integration is also touted as a “safer” alternative to switching between apps while driving.

Some changes have been introduced to the Waze app, and following the changes, users can now tap the music note icon within the Waze app and they will be allowed to select YouTube Music as their preferred audio app. Several options that the app will include to make other music apps as the preferred audio app will be “Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, iHeartRadio, NPR One, Scribd, Stitcher, and TuneIn”.

As of now the integration of the music apps with the Waze app is only available in Brazil, but there are reports that soon the integration will reach other 50 markets where both apps are accessible.

“All of the albums, playlists, personalized mixes, and more that fans love to listen to are now available with a couple of quick taps as they navigate to where they need to go,” shares YouTube Music product manager Lawrence Kennedy in a blog post announcing the new feature. “With YouTube Music and Waze together in one experience, there has never been a more entertaining way to get around.”
