Apple Music for Android could be getting support for Google Chromecast soon if a new APK deconstruct is to be believed. 9to5 Google has come across several lines of code in Apple Music for Android version 2.8, suggesting that the service could soon become compatible with Chromecast-enabled devices.

Apple Music for Android recently added support for Chromebooks and got a restyled browse tab to feature more editorial highlights. This was followed by Version 2.8.1 and 2.8.2, which fixed several bugs on Apple Music. The latest Version 2.8.2 of the app revealed a string of code hinting at Chromecast support for the music streaming service. Looking at the code string, it could be said that Apple is working towards enabling Chromecast support for Apple Music so that users can play music on Google Home, Smart Displays, Android TV or Chromecast dongles.

This new integration has not been officially confirmed by Google or Apple and it’s possible that the feature is just being tested for now. The news comes a few weeks on the heels of another discovery wherein Apple Music was spotted as a supported service for Google Assistant. Unfortunately, Google quickly pulled the listing from the Assistant’s settings and said that it had nothing to announce at the moment.
