Apple and Amazon have collaborated once again to try to bring Apple’s music streaming service to the new Amazon Echo range.
The smart speakers will supposedly work with new integration as opposed to a regular Bluetooth speaker.
Apple Music subscribers will now be able to insert their playlists and Apple’s database full of more than 50 million songs to the Amazon Alexa on December 17th on all Echo devices.
To be able to use this feature first, you have to enable a new Alexa skill when linking your Apple Music account.
As of now, regional information regarding how this feature will be available is unknown but is rumored to only be available in the USA for the time being.
“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,” said Amazon Devices senior vice president Dave Limp. “We’re thrilled to bring Apple Music – one of the most popular music services in the U.S. – to Echo customers this holiday.”
This feature was officially confirmed over Amazon’s corporate blog and Amazon will now have access to more than 50 million songs as well as the Beats 1 Radio show.
Updates will be posted once information is available.
