A new music option is coming to Waze.


The Waze app is adding a new trick. You can now play songs from your  YouTube Music  account within the crowdsourced navigation app. The new feature is rolling out Wednesday and will soon be available in all 50 markets where both services are accessible, YouTube Music said in a blog post Wednesday.

YouTube Music is now in Waze. 


YouTube Premium and YouTube Music Premium subscribers can listen to their albums, playlists and personalized mixes without having to switch away from the navigation app. 

To access YouTube Music in Waze for either iOS or Android, users can select the music notes icon in the navigation app. From there, select "YouTube Music." 

If there isn't a music notes icon, head to settings and choose "Audio Player." Then select "Show Audio Player."

Waze already supports several other music and podcast apps, including Spotify, Pandora, Sticher, Deezer and iHeartRadio.
