Apple Music has now extended its services on Amazon’s Fire TV today after it was initially available on Amazon Echo smart speakers. This is a part of the deal made by Apple CEO Tim Cook back in 2017 when they announced about their partnership with Amazon and decided to mutually bring forward their services on each other’s platform.
To make sure the deal wasn’t just for namesake, both the companies have been keeping at it and working towards a common goal. In the recent past, Apple made all its products like iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch available back on Amazon.com while Amazon’s Prime Video App made an entry on Apple TV.
Coming back to Apple Music, Fire TV users are in for a delight to be able to stream all their favourite songs and artists right from their television. Techcrunch reported:
The launch will allow Apple Music subscribers the ability to access the streaming service’s catalog of 50 million songs just by asking Alexa. Users can request songs, artists, playlists and albums by saying things like “Alexa, play today’s hits on Apple Music,” or “Alexa, play music by [artist’s name] on Apple Music,” for example.
To use Apple Music on Fire TV, you’ll have to enable the Apple Music skill and link your account. (Those who had already done so in order to listen on their Echo device won’t need to do this again.)
Fire TV users in the U.S. can now readily stream Apple Music, while the users in other parts of the world will have to wait.
