On December 17th – you’ll be able to stream Apple Music through Amazon Echo devices. The addition of the competing music service rounds out the smart speaker’s music streaming offerings that already include Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify, and TuneIn.
“Music is one of the most popular features on Alexa—since Alexa was launched 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.”
Apple Music subscribers will be able to enjoy the service’s 50 million song library on Echo devices. Alexa will be able to play the subscriber’s favorite songs, artists, albums and playlists, as well as playlists created by Apple Music editors.
