You can now stream Apple Music on your Amazon Fire TV

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K

The announcement follows the release of Apple Music for Amazon Echo smart speakers at the end of 2018.

In late 2018, Apple Music's availability expanded to Amazon's ecosystem with support on Echo speakers in the U.S. On Wednesday, Amazon announced that this support is expanding.

The inclusion of Apple Music in Amazon Fire TVs will allow customers to command Alexa to simply play tunes from Apple's music and video streaming service. However, they don't need to activate the skill on their Amazon Fire TV if they have already done that on their Amazon Echo. It also originally launched for iOS devices, but has since come to more devices. Have you tested it out on an Alexa device?

Amazon's third-generation Fire TV dongle was recently discontinued and replaced by the Fire TV stick 4K.

The Christchurch suspect's manifesto also used various hate symbols associated with the Nazis and white supremacy. He escaped out the back door and climbed over a wall when he saw people fleeing and realised what was happening.

The news of Apple Music coming to the Echo in the United Kingdom comes months after the service launched in the US.

Apple Music hitting the Fire TV is another sign that Apple is slowly moving away from its old approach of forcing people to own an Apple device to use its services.

You can choose Apple Music as the default music provider for Alexa, if desired. You'll also be able to get your hands on the device the next day, with Amazon Prime one-day delivery. We like its large music library, exclusive content, offline playback feature, Siri and Apple Watch integration, and more.

Meanwhile the video streaming industry is bracing itself for Apple's new video service, which is expected to be revealed at an event later this month.
