Google Maps receives media controls from YouTube Music

Google updated the Google Maps for Android and now the service brings integration with media player YouTube Music. The novelty allows the user to control the audio tracks of the streaming service directly in the interface of the navigation app.

According to screenshots shared by Android Police, the YouTube Music button appears in the right corner of the Maps screen. The media controls are at the base of the interface and allow you to perform basic commands such as pausing and changing music.

The YouTube Music player also comes with a button that allows you to view the tracks in more detail. In addition, the interface has a shortcut to open the streaming application and access advanced playback settings.

For those who want to test the novelty, just download the new version of Google Maps on the Play Store .

Now available on Spotify and Apple Music

Support for YouTube Music media controls arrives to make life easier for users of the platform they drive while listening to playlists from the streaming service. It is worth mentioning that Google’s solution is not the first to receive integration with Maps.

The media controls tool while browsing also works with Spotify, Apple Music, and also Google Play Music. Support for services has been available since 2018 and can be used if one of the apps is installed on the phone.

To activate the function, the user needs to access the “Settings” of Maps, present in the menu that opens when clicking on his profile photo, in the upper right corner of the interface. Then just find the “Navigation Settings” option and choose your preferred streaming app.
