Amazon has announced today that Apple Music will soon be available to users of its Echo range of smart speakers.
Starting December 17, Echo users will see Apple Music as an option within the Alexa app. To begin using Apple Music on your Echo speaker you’ll need to link your Apple Music account with the Alexa app so that voice commands such as “Alexa, play Bebe Rexha on Apple Music.” can be enabled.
Shared within a statement published by Amazon today, Dave Limp, senior vice president, Amazon Devices said…
Music has always been one of Alexa’s most popular features and today we’re excited to announce that Apple Music will be available on Echo devices beginning the week of December 17. – Customers will be able to ask Alexa to play their favorite songs, artists, and albums—or any of the playlists made by Apple Music’s editors from around the world, covering many activities and moods.
Apple Music joins the list of music streaming services available on Amazon Alexa such as Amazon Music, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and Pandora. The announcement comes shortly after Amazon began stocking a wide selection of Apple products such as the new 2018 iPad Pro models, the iPhone XR, the iPhone XS and XS Max, Apple Watch Series 4 models, the 2018 Mac mini, and a selection of Beats headphones.
