Waze has long partnered with various streaming services over the years, adding Amazon Music back in 2020, for example, so it's been a long wait for Apple's streaming service to join the fold. But join it has, as stated on Waze's blog (opens in new tab) dated 24 May 2022.
As the blog post points out, if you're an Apple Music subscriber, that's a great free update as the apps "will seamlessly integrate ... so you can keep your eyes on the road while enjoying the ride."
Not an Apple Music user? There are other options that tie-in with Waze's system, too, such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, and iHeart Radio. There's a whole host of options to entertain your ears without distracting your eyes from the road.
