In somewhat surprising news, Amazon has announced that its Amazon Echo devices will soon be able to seamlessly stream the popular Apple Music service. It will launch mid-December.

According to the post from Amazon, listeners can utilize Amazon Alexa to play specific songs, artists, or albums, as well as customized playlists created by Apple Music editors. Also available for streaming, various playlists from “experts” around the world, plus the global Beats 1 livestream completely ad-free.

How to set up your Echo to stream Apple Music

Once the functionality is available, users will be able to set up a searchable Amazon Skill to accomplish it. Once the Skill is set up, you’ll simply enter your account information and you’ll be good to go.

Apple Music joins plenty of other streaming services on Echo, including Spotify, Pandora, and iHeartRadio.

More about the collaboration

With Apple selling its own HomePod smart speaker, it’s a bit surprising to see this official collaboration happening. But then again, Amazon and Apple have been playing nice recently and this may yet another step towards that friendship partnership.
