Users can also ask Alexa to stream Beats 1 one or curated radio stations centered on popular genres like Hip-Hop, decades like the 80s, and music from around the world like K-Pop. They must first enable the Apple Music skill in the Alexa app and link their account to start listening.
“Music is one of the most popular features on Alexa—since we launched Alexa four years ago, customers are listening to more music in their homes than ever before,” said Dave Limp, SVP, Amazon Devices. “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.”
