Apple Music Is Coming To Amazon Echo Speakers

Radio Facts: radiofacts.com

Starting the week of December 17, Apple Music will be Available on Amazon’s Echo.

The announcement comes from a blog that was published by Amazon. According to the announcement, subscribers will be able to enjoy Apple Music’s 500 million songs on Echo devices.

Users will be able to ask Alexa to songs, radio shows, and Beats 1 shows through Apple Music.

Customers who are Apple Music’s subscribers can ask Alexa to play any track from Apple’s catalog of music, or any playlist made by Apple Music’s editors.

The integration is big news since Apple sells its own smart speaker, the HomePod. Although Apple has their own smart speakers, their speakers haven’t sold well compared to Amazon Echo or Google’s Home speaker. The HomePod only shipped 600,000 units compared to 4 million Echos and 2.4 million Google Home according to a Q1 2018 report. The report was done by researchers Strategy Analytics.

This integration also helps Apple better compete with Spotify. Spotify also premium service available through Echo. Spotify has 83 million subscribers while Apple has about 50 million.

  1. Great story but make it an open call to the black SGL COMMUNITY, if a Youtube show or a production is good enough and has a big enough following, the networks will call YOU. (eg “Insecure”) Leverage is a beast. Black people will turn into dust waiting for acceptance, permission and a green light to do what we are already qualified to do on our own. Stop asking for opportunities. TAKE them and create your own EMPIRE!!!

  2. This is what I think it is; There are WAY too many people involved in the production and it’s obvious. I agree the show is losing authenticity. There are WAY too many celeb appearances who are not believable and can’t act. It’s starting to get annoying. Jussie’s character is enough for now for non gay viewers but the guy doing Sylvester was WAY over the top and just TOO much this early in the show. Cookie is overused. Viewers need to anticipate her appearances, their needs to be a couple of younger producers on there to bring more balance to the music. Don’t sing entire songs but just a segments, give the audience a reason to want to buy the music. The oldest son is one of the best actors on the show (mental breakdown) but he’s not being used enough. Not enough focus on the main characters and the storyline is getting weak. Finally the name of the new label “Lion Dynasty” is the WORST name for a record label I have ever heard and I work in the music industry. It’s not belevable.
