Obviously listening to the odd song while driving is an excellent way to spend time relaxed until we reach our destination. This way you can use the controls of music from Google Maps with Spotify , Apple Music and YouTube Music . This way, we will not need to be distracted when we want to change a song, nor will we have to leave Google Maps if we are using it to get to our destination..

The first thing we will have to do, obviously, is open Google Maps on our iPhone or iPad, click on the icon of our profile that is in the upper right corner and then we go to "Settings".

Once we are in Settings, we will have to go to "Navigation"..

From here we will have to select "Music Playback Controls".

We will see a list of compatible transmission services which are the ones we have installed on our device. So we are going to have to select the one we want to use, it may ask you to open the application and authorize Google Maps so that you can use it..

Once we have done that, we can start navigating to a location on Maps.
