Apple Music Coming to Amazon Echo

Apple Music Coming to Amazon Echo

Support for Apple's own music streaming service will be available to Amazon Echo devices across the United States from December 17 with "additional countries coming next year", the company said. Apple support will be rolling out to Echo devices the week of December 17.

"We're thrilled to bring Apple Music - one of the most popular music services in the United States - to Echo customers this holiday", he added. However, users will have to enable the Apple Music as a skill for Alexa app, and they will have to link their account to use the service.

The Amazon Echo Dot is a pretty small smart speaker that you can use to put in your home and interact with Alexa.

One notable absence from Apple's expansion onto Amazon's virtual shelves was HomePod, however.

I say "surprise" because it's somewhat unusual for Apple to share its services on other hardware, especially considering the HomePod is still pretty new.

It's unclear if the two moves are related.

Your Echo speakers are about to get better.

Earlier this month, Amazon said it would carry more Apple products globally in time for the holiday shopping season.

Apple hasn't announced a similar partnership with Google for its Home speakers.

Amazon Echo comes in a number of different models but all possess the same core functionality. Amazon reversed course in the end. The company isn't averse to making Apple Music available to other connected speaker firms; after all, you can access it through Sonos speakers and other devices too.

That's going to change, and soon.
