Waze signs up YouTube Music as newest audio player partner

Waze, the platform bringing together communities on and off the road, today announced YouTube Music is their newest Audio Player partner, giving drivers a new way to listen to music while safely driving.  

Originally launched in October 2018, Waze’s full service audio player caters for every taste and genre by partnering with the world’s leading audio platforms to seamlessly deliver music, podcasts, audiobooks, news, and more. Since then, Waze users have driven almost 11 billion kilometers while listening to content from one of Waze’s Audio Player partners.  By partnering with YouTube Music, from today drivers can safely listen to their favorite albums, playlists, personalized mixes, and more from directly within the Waze app where they get their navigation directions.

“We’re really excited to have YouTube Music be part of the Waze Audio Player family,” said Adam Fried, Head of Global Partnerships at Waze. “We always want to make sure our users have the best possible experience in the car, and now providing them with access to YouTube Music’s huge catalogue means they’ll always have access to their favourite tracks and playlists while on the road.”

Lawrence Kennedy, Product Manager, YouTube Music, said: “We know our users love listening to YouTube Music when they’re in the car, so partnering with Waze now makes the driving and music listening experience even better. By making YouTube Music albums, playlists, mixes and more available within the Waze app, our users can enjoy all their favourite content without ever missing a turn.”

YouTube Music Premium subscribers can listen on Waze by simply opening the Waze app and tapping the music note icon to select YouTube Music as their audio player. They can start enjoying audio content directly from Waze right away, including playlists, radio and more. 

Waze initially launched with seven partners: Deezer, iHeartRadio, NPR, Pandora, Scribd, Stitcher, and TuneIn joined Spotify, which has been available on Waze since March 2017. Since then, Waze has also introduced integrations with Audiobooks.com, Radio.com, Castbox and NRJ Radio, who integrated their audio experience into Waze by using the Waze Audio Kit.
