Waze said Tuesday that the navigation app has integrated Apple Music into its Waze Audio Player. The new integration allows users to access "90 million songs, tens of thousands of curated playlists, Apple Music Radio and more," according to a blog post. 

Adding Apple Music to the Waze Audio Player enables drivers listen to music and receive navigation without having to switch between apps, limiting potential distractions inside the vehicle. Or as the Waze blog puts it, the Apple Music integration is so you can "keep your eyes on the road while enjoying the ride."

To access Apple Music via the Waze app, tap the music note icon on the home screen. Apple Music should now show as an option if your phone is logged into an Apple Music account.

With the integration, Apple Music joins a number of other music services already compatible with the app, including YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora and iHeartRadio. In addition to integrating music services into the app, other recent Waze updates have included an upgraded color palette, a new logo and a "Moods" feature that lets users show how they're feeling about their travels.

Waze didn't immediate respond to a request for additional comment.
