Apple Music is coming to Amazon’s Alexa enabled devices later this month, it will be available from the week of the 17th of December.
You will be able to link your Apple Music account via an Alexa skill to Amazon devices and then play music on these devices from Apple’s platform.
“Music is one of the most popular features on Alexa—since we launched Alexa four years ago, customers are listening to more music in their homes than ever before,” said Dave Limp, senior vice president, Amazon Devices. “We are committed to offering great music providers to our customers and since launching the Music Skill API to developers just last month, we’ve expanded the music selection on Alexa to include even more top tier services. We’re thrilled to bring Apple Music – one of the most popular music services in the US – to Echo customers this holiday.”
This is good news for Apple and could help the company gain more subscribers as Amazon’s Alexa enabled devices are one of the most popular smart speakers on the market.
