Availability of Apple Music is a fairly big deal, as it was previously only streaming on Apple's pricey HomePod speakers. Rumors that Apple is planning an architecture switch away from Intel chips to its own silicon have been circulating for some time now, but recent reports suggest that Apple's revamping will be widespread, and bring even tighter integration between iPhone, iPad, and the Mac.
Apple Music has been available on Android since launch and continuing to push it out across Amazon's product line just makes the same kind of sense: Get the service into as many ears as possible, while simultaneously making it more valuable to Family Plan subscribers who live in multi-platform households. Amazon's speakers are getting better in that regard in the near future, as the company has announced that Apple Music will be available on Echo devices later this year.
"We're thrilled to bring Apple Music - one of the most popular music services in the United States - to Echo customers this holiday". Google Home devices is a potential, as we saw a few weeks ago.
"Apple Music subscribers will be able to enjoy Apple Music's 50 million songs on Echo devices".
You will also be able to use Alexa to play music on your Fire TV devices with your voice.
"Just ask Alexa to play Beats 1 to hear Apple Music's global livestream including in-depth artist interviews- all completely ad-free". Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube Music, and more.
Apple is planning major changes for Mac, should buyers wait?
