Amazon Echo smart speakers already support a variety of music services, including Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio and TuneIn. And as of December 17, Apple Music will participate in this little cohort.
Apple Music users will be able to ask Alexa to play their favorite songs, artists and albums, as well as some of the streaming service's curated playlists and radio stations. Echo owners will simply need to enable Apple Music skills in the Alexa app, link their account and they will be good at going.
Making Apple Music available on echo drives may seem to be in violation of Apple's usual strategy to use services as a lure for hardware (and vice versa), but the company may apparently look at the feeling of making streaming service available. on the most popular home speaker platform out there. It also looks like it's happier to watch Amazon's platform recently. Earlier this month, a new deal with the e-commerce giant was launched to sell iPhones, iPads, and other Apple products.
