Amazon Fire TV Apple Music Launches

Your Amazon Fire TV can stream Apple Music

Apple Music is now available on Amazon Fire TV, enabling customers to play music through their television using voice commands. The move follows Apple Music's launch on the Amazon Echo previous year (via CNBC). Amazon also announced the availability of the Apple Music skill will expand to include the United Kingdom for Fire TV and Echo devices in the "coming weeks". If not, you can simply set it up from the Alexa app, according to CNBC.

It's just been announced that Apple Music will be arriving on these smart speakers in the coming weeks. The company has long made its services available only on its own devices, and now that is business focus has shifted towards services-based revenue, the company is aggressively pushing its services and bringing them to more and more devices.

Go to the Apple Music Alexa Skill in a browser or the Alexa app. It was only in December that Apple Music came to Echo devices, and with Apple's rumoured video streaming service due to launch, we suspect the company will want to continue opening up its services to other platforms.

For years, Apple treated its various services as "sweeteners" to convince consumers to buy an iPhone, iPad and Mac.

To set-up your Fire TV Stick or Fire TV Stick 4K, you'll need a compatible TV (HD or 4K) with an HDMI input port, an internet connection, and an Amazon account. Google Home devices is a potential, as we saw a few weeks ago.

First of all, you'll need to choose between the Amazon Fire TV Stick and it's upgraded sibling, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K.

The news of this upgrade comes as Apple recently announced it now has over 50 million subscribers to Music.

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.
