Apple Music comes to Amazon Echo smart speakers starting December 17th
Friday, November 30, 2018
Highlighting growing cooperation between the two companies, Amazon has announced that Apple Music is coming to Amazon Echo smart speakers starting December 17th via The Amazon Blog:

Music has always been one of Alexa’s most popular features and today we’re excited to announce that Apple Music will be available on Echo devices beginning the week of December 17.

Apple Music subscribers will be able to enjoy Apple Music’s 50 million songs on Echo devices. Customers will be able to ask Alexa to play their favorite songs, artists, and albums—or any of the playlists made by Apple Music’s editors from around the world, covering many activities and moods. Customers will also be able to ask Alexa to stream expert-made radio stations centered on popular genres like Hip-Hop, decades like the 80s, and even music from around the world, like K-Pop. Just ask Alexa to play Beats 1 to hear Apple Music’s global livestream including in-depth artist interviews— all completely ad-free. Simply enable the Apple Music skill in the Alexa app and link your account to start listening.

“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.”

Customers tell us that the simplicity and ease of asking Alexa for the content they want to hear has brought more music into their homes. Customers ask Alexa to play all kinds of music in many different languages. They stream tens of millions of hours of radio per month and have set tens of millions of music alarms since the feature launched less than a year ago.

Fun fact: Top country is the most requested music to wake up to.

We’re excited to bring Apple Music to our Alexa customers this holiday season.

Wow, I'm really excited to hear this. I've been struggling over which
music subscription service to keep (I subscribe to both amazon
unlimited and apple music). Admittedly, I was leaning toward unsubbing
from apple music, but didn't because I have so many personal playlists
I just didn't have the time or the inclination to recreate on the
amazon service. Also, I find creating playlists far less intutive on
the amazon platform. So this news makes me very happy.

Hi there:



I just received this email concerning Apple Music on the Amazon Alexa device. I am wondering if this is going to be permanent, or just for a short period. I am an able subscriber, and have an apple account as I am an iPhone 7 Plus user. Also, is this a free feature, or is there a monthly subscription fee.



Thanks folks!

This will be a permanent feature. Now the specific details are still not clear. I am not sure if it will just be a subscription service like Spotify, or you will also be able to play your own personal music and the free stations offered by Apple Music. Now I would assume that if you are already an Apple Music subscriber, then you should be fine and be able to access it without a problem.

I believe that the article says that you will link your Apple Music account with your Alexa service.

Those with Sonos and Alexa have Apple Music linked with Sonos.

I am not sure if it will just be a subscription service like Spotify, or you will also be able to play your own personal music and the free stations offered by Apple Music. Now I would assume that if you are already an Apple Music subscriber, then you should be fine and be able to access it without a problem.

I just received this email concerning Apple Music on the Amazon Alexa device. I am wondering if this is going to be permanent, or just for a short period. I am an able subscriber, and have an apple account as I am an iPhone 7 Plus user. Also, is this a free feature, or is there a monthly subscription fee.
Thanks folks!

Apple Music comes to Amazon Echo smart speakers starting December 17th
Friday, November 30, 2018
Music has always been one of Alexa’s most popular features and today we’re excited to announce that Apple Music will be available on Echo devices beginning the week of December 17.
Apple Music subscribers will be able to enjoy Apple Music’s 50 million songs on Echo devices. Customers will be able to ask Alexa to play their favorite songs, artists, and albums—or any of the playlists made by Apple Music’s editors from around the world, covering many activities and moods. Customers will also be able to ask Alexa to stream expert-made radio stations centered on popular genres like Hip-Hop, decades like the 80s, and even music from around the world, like K-Pop. Just ask Alexa to play Beats 1 to hear Apple Music’s global livestream including in-depth artist interviews— all completely ad-free. Simply enable the Apple Music skill in the Alexa app and link your account to start listening.
“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.”
Customers tell us that the simplicity and ease of asking Alexa for the content they want to hear has brought more music into their homes. Customers ask Alexa to play all kinds of music in many different languages. They stream tens of millions of hours of radio per month and have set tens of millions of music alarms since the feature launched less than a year ago.
Fun fact: Top country is the most requested music to wake up to.
We’re excited to bring Apple Music to our Alexa customers this holiday season.

I don't have either Amazon music or Apple Music at this time but have
thought about subscribing to one but not both. Because I am a Prime
member, Amazon is less expensive but I have found that purchasing
music from them is really difficult these days and for that reason I
am more reluctant to use them. So, having said all that, do people
overall have any preference between these services?

I definitely have Apple Music. I had Amazon for a while, got it on prime day deal, and then canceled it, because I didn’t use it very much. I like Apple Music. And since I just got HomePods, there’s no way I would go back to Amazon music instead of Apple.

Hi, i am an amazon prime customer, and i also subscribe to amazon music
unlimited.

I love it, and use it with my echo device.

You don't have to be a prime customer, to subscribe, to music unlimited, it
just works out a bit cheaper if you are.

Dave.

I have tried both Apple Music as well as the unlimited Amazon Music subscription. They are both good, but I went with the unlimited Amazon Music because it seems that a few of the artist that I like to listen to was not available on Apple Music, but was available on Amazon Music. I can not speak to how accessible it is to purchase music from Amazon Music because I do not really buy music anymore. I just listen to what I want through my subscription.

Post by Deb Cook Lewis
I don't have either Amazon music or Apple Music at this time but have
thought about subscribing to one but not both. Because I am a Prime
member, Amazon is less expensive but I have found that purchasing
music from them is really difficult these days and for that reason I
am more reluctant to use them. So, having said all that, do people
overall have any preference between these services?

I believe that the article says that you will link your Apple Music account
with your Alexa service.
Those with Sonos and Alexa have Apple Music linked with Sonos.

This will be a permanent feature. Now the specific details are still not
clear. I am not sure if it will just be a subscription service like
Spotify, or you will also be able to play your own personal music and the
free stations offered by Apple Music. Now I would assume that if you are
already an Apple Music subscriber, then you should be fine and be able to
access it without a problem.

I just received this email concerning Apple Music on the Amazon Alexa
device. I am wondering if this is going to be permanent, or just for a
short period. I am an able subscriber, and have an apple account as I am
an iPhone 7 Plus user. Also, is this a free feature, or is there a
monthly subscription fee.
Thanks folks!

Apple Music comes to Amazon Echo smart speakers starting December 17th
Friday, November 30, 2018
Highlighting growing cooperation between the two companies, Amazon has
announced that Apple Music is coming to Amazon Echo smart speakers
Music has always been one of Alexa’s most popular features and today
we’re excited to announce that Apple Music will be available on Echo
devices beginning the week of December 17.
Apple Music subscribers will be able to enjoy Apple Music’s 50 million
songs on Echo devices. Customers will be able to ask Alexa to play their
favorite songs, artists, and albums—or any of the playlists made by Apple
Music’s editors from around the world, covering many activities and
moods. Customers will also be able to ask Alexa to stream expert-made
radio stations centered on popular genres like Hip-Hop, decades like the
80s, and even music from around the world, like K-Pop. Just ask Alexa to
play Beats 1 to hear Apple Music’s global livestream including in-depth
artist interviews— all completely ad-free. Simply enable the Apple Music
skill in the Alexa app and link your account to start listening.
“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.”
Customers tell us that the simplicity and ease of asking Alexa for the
content they want to hear has brought more music into their homes.
Customers ask Alexa to play all kinds of music in many different
languages. They stream tens of millions of hours of radio per month and
have set tens of millions of music alarms since the feature launched less
than a year ago.
Fun fact: Top country is the most requested music to wake up to.

radio stations centered on popular genres like Hip-Hop, decades like the
80s, and even music from around the world, like K-Pop. Just ask Alexa to
play Beats 1 to hear Apple Music’s global livestream including in-depth
artist interviews— all completely ad-free. Simply enable the Apple Music
skill in the Alexa app and link your account to start listening.
“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.”
Customers tell us that the simplicity and ease of asking Alexa for the
content they want to hear has brought more music into their homes.
Customers ask Alexa to play all kinds of music in many different
languages. They stream tens of millions of hours of radio per month and
have set tens of millions of music alarms since the feature launched less
than a year ago.
Fun fact: Top country is the most requested music to wake up to.
We’re excited to bring Apple Music to our Alexa customers this holiday
season.

While it looks like you can play your Amazon music from within the Amazon app on iPhone, I have always found it much easier to use Apple Music. If you know the song or artist you want to hear you can ask Siri to play it and if your taste in music isn't too far out there from the "norm" it will usually just happen and you don't have to mess with Shortcuts to get it to work. If you don't know just what to say you can search by artist, song title or even a little bit of the lyrics of a song that you happen to remember from within Apple Music and often I find what I want that way. It's very easy to add new music to your library but this doesn't mean it has to take up space on your devices because you have a choice to actually download it for offline listening or not. Now with apple music coming to Echo devices soon it seems pretty much like Apple Music will continue to be my choice. Last but certainly not least, most phones are with their people almost all the time so your Apple Music is always right there with you!

I don't have either Amazon music or Apple Music at this time but have thought about subscribing to one but not both. Because I am a Prime member, Amazon is less expensive but I have found that purchasing music from them is really difficult these days and for that reason I am more reluctant to use them. So, having said all that, do people overall have any preference between these services?

account with your Alexa service.
Those with Sonos and Alexa have Apple Music linked with Sonos.

This will be a permanent feature. Now the specific details are still
not clear. I am not sure if it will just be a subscription service
like Spotify, or you will also be able to play your own personal
music and the free stations offered by Apple Music. Now I would
assume that if you are already an Apple Music subscriber, then you
should be fine and be able to access it without a problem.

I just received this email concerning Apple Music on the Amazon

just for a short period. I am an able subscriber, and have an apple

or is there a monthly subscription fee.
Thanks folks!

Apple Music comes to Amazon Echo smart speakers starting December
17th Friday, November 30, 2018 Highlighting growing cooperation
between the two companies, Amazon has announced that Apple Music is
coming to Amazon Echo smart speakers starting December 17th via The
Music has always been one of Alexa’s most popular features and today
we’re excited to announce that Apple Music will be available on Echo
devices beginning the week of December 17.
Apple Music subscribers will be able to enjoy Apple Music’s 50
million songs on Echo devices. Customers will be able to ask Alexa
to play their favorite songs, artists, and albums—or any of the
playlists made by Apple Music’s editors from around the world,
covering many activities and moods. Customers will also be able to
ask Alexa to stream expert-made radio stations centered on popular
genres like Hip-Hop, decades like the 80s, and even music from

Hi there:



I just received this email concerning Apple Music on the Amazon Alexa device. I am wondering if this is going to be permanent, or just for a short period. I am an able subscriber, and have an apple account as I am an iPhone 7 Plus user. Also, is this a free feature, or is there a monthly subscription fee.



Thanks folks!

Apple Music comes to Amazon Echo smart speakers starting December 17th
Friday, November 30, 2018

Highlighting growing cooperation between the two companies, Amazon has announced that Apple Music is coming to Amazon Echo smart speakers starting December 17th via The Amazon Blog:

Music has always been one of Alexa’s most popular features and today we’re excited to announce that Apple Music will be available on Echo devices beginning the week of December 17.

Apple Music subscribers will be able to enjoy Apple Music’s 50 million songs on Echo devices. Customers will be able to ask Alexa to play their favorite songs, artists, and albums—or any of the playlists made by Apple Music’s editors from around the world, covering many activities and moods. Customers will also be able to ask Alexa to stream expert-made radio stations centered on popular genres like Hip-Hop, decades like the 80s, and even music from around the world, like K-Pop. Just ask Alexa to play Beats 1 to hear Apple Music’s global livestream including in-depth artist interviews— all completely ad-free. Simply enable the Apple Music skill in the Alexa app and link your account to start listening.

“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.”

Customers tell us that the simplicity and ease of asking Alexa for the content they want to hear has brought more music into their homes. Customers ask Alexa to play all kinds of music in many different languages. They stream tens of millions of hours of radio per month and have set tens of millions of music alarms since the feature launched less than a year ago.

Fun fact: Top country is the most requested music to wake up to.

We’re excited to bring Apple Music to our Alexa customers this holiday season.
