Apple and Alexa join forces as music dream team
ATTENTION music lovers, Apple Music is now available on Alexa in Australia and New Zealand.
Apple Music subscribers in Australia and NZ can now enjoy Apple Music's 50 million songs on Amazon's full range of Echo devices, including Echo Dot, Echo Plus and Echo Show.
And we are among the first international launches for Apple Music on Echo devices, following the recent launch in the UK.
According to Amazon, customers will be able to ask Alexa to play their favourite 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 centred on popular genres like Hip-Hop, decades like the 80s, and even music from around the world, like K-Pop.
You can also ask Alexa to play Beats 1 to hear Apple Music's global livestream including in-depth artist interviews- all completely ad-free.
Alexa users can enable the Apple Music skill via the Skills Store in the Alexa app, or on Amazon.com.au.
