Protect Your Access to the Internet

Playing music while running a navigation app on your phone has just gotten easier, as Waze just added support for Apple Music.

The iPhone maker’s streaming service is the latest to receive Waze Audio Player support. Waze’s popular navigation app already works with various Apple Music alternatives, but this will be a big bonus for Apple fans.
