Amazon Announced Apple Music Coming To Echo Speakers Starting Next Month

In a blog post today, Amazon announced that Apple Music will launch on Echo devices as soon as the week of December 17, ahead of the holiday season, and it comes after Apple and Amazon reached the agreement of starting to sell almost all Apple Products again on their website, except for HomePod.

Once it's launched, users will need to enable the Apple Music skill within the Alexa app, and then link their Apple Music account to start listening songs. Apple Music Subscribers can ask Alexa to play their favorite songs, artist, playlists, or even radio stations, and playing over 50 million songs. Echo speakers also supports other music streaming services as well, such as Spotify, Pandora.
“We are committed to offering great music providers to our customers and since launching the Music Skill API to developers just last month, we’ve expanded the music selection on Alexa to include even more top tier services. We’re thrilled to bring Apple Music – one of the most popular music services in the US – to Echo customers this holiday.”
Well, this certainly is a bad news for HomePod, however, since it's specifically designed for Apple Music, but is also an indication that cares Services revenue to the company. Perhaps, the poor sales of the smart speaker may leds Apple to decide bring Apple Music to echo devices.
