Another Amazon device is getting Apple Music support in the US

Apple Music has been available on your run-of-the-mill Alexa devices, namely Echo and Dot and the like, for a while now.

Apple is continuing its big push in services, launching its Apple Music streaming services on Amazon's Fire TV devices. Customers can enable this function by opening the Alexa app on their phone and setting up the Apple Music skill. If not, you can simply set it up from the Alexa app, according to CNBC. With this, Fire TV devices can be used to stream playlists, albums, and individual songs from Apple Music using "Alexa" commands. 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. You'll also be able to get your hands on the device the next day, with Amazon Prime one-day delivery. Late previous year, Apple Music began streaming support for the Echo as well.

Aside from the recent addition of Apple Music, the Fire TV already offers a variety of music streaming services such as Spotify, Amazon Music, and iHeart Radio. There have been signs that this streaming service is coming to Google Home smartspeakers too. This launch indicates Apple's switch from a standard walled-garden approach to services. You'll need to have your Apple ID login credentials handy. While new subscribers get a three-month free trial, the service does require a $9.99 monthly subscription.

Along with this music streaming plan, it's thought Apple could soon launch a similar service for video.
