Amazon Fire TV finally gets Apple Music streaming

Apple Music on Amazon Fire TV

The follows the launch on Amazon Echo devices in December. Just this week Spotify announced its Premium subscribers will now get Hulu for free, a move likely meant to pre-empt Apple, which we expect will be bundled its new video streaming service (at least optionally) with Apple Music.

"We're excited to announce that Apple Music will be available on Echo devices beginning the week of December 17". Apparently, Apple is also looking to finalize a deal with Roku, a US manufacturer of digital media players that allow access to internet streamed audio or video services through TVs. It's actually the Apple Music Alexa Skill - the same as what you'd use to listen to Apple Music on an Amazon Echo speaker. You'll also be able to purchase that Amazon Fire TV Stick for £24.99, which is £15 less than what those at the back of the queue will pay.

Amazon is staying tight-lipped about when this update will officially launch in the United Kingdom but they have told Echo owners to expect more news in the coming weeks. If not, you can simply set it up from the Alexa app, according to CNBC.

Amazon is rolling out expanded support for Apple Music this week.

You will also be able to use Alexa to play music on your Fire TV devices with your voice.

Which Fire TV Stick is best? The new support has arrived in the Apple Music skill, which has already been available for Echo device owners to utilize.

It's just been announced that Apple Music will be arriving on these smart speakers in the coming weeks. Apple Music on Google Home was eventually pulled offline even before it became active.
