Initially spotted by MacRumors and later confirmed by myself and Phil Nickinson, there's now an option for Apple Music in the Music section of the Google Home app.

This means that users who have a Google Home speaker can now set Apple's music service as the default music player on their smart speaker, involving it with a simple "Hey Google, Play [insert music here]". The button to actually link your Apple Music account didn't work, but the presence of Apple Music in the app seemed to be a clear sign that an announcement was coming. Launch Google Home for iOS, then to go Settings Music Apple Music.

Apple recently announced that its music streaming service has more than 50 million paid subscribers, still far behind Spotify's almost 100 million premium customers.

Charges filed against Robert Kraft for soliciting prostitutes
The 77-year-old widower faces up to a year in jail if convicted of the two misdemeanor charges. Kraft denies being involved in "any illegal activity", a spokesman told reporters.

This is yet another step by Apple to expand its services business. If Apple is able to make a deal to get Apple Music on Echo speakers, it would be a natural fit to show up on Google Home speakers as well.

The update is rolling out to iOS and Android users now. Three months later, it was on Amazon Echo and now it's on Google Home. Apple Music is one of the most popular music services out there right now and it's also available in most number of regions.
