United Kingdom customers will be happy to hear that support for both Echo and Fire TV is expected to roll out in the coming weeks. Amazon says that Apple Music will also be available on Fire TV and Echo devices there "in the coming weeks".
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. If you have already set up Apple Music to work with your Echo speakers via Alexa, you will not be required to set it up again and Apple Music will seamlessly start working on your Fire TV devices.
You will also be able to use Alexa to play music on your Fire TV devices with your voice. With this, Fire TV devices can be used to stream playlists, albums, and individual songs from Apple Music using "Alexa" commands. 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. We like its large music library, exclusive content, offline playback feature, Siri and Apple Watch integration, and more.
For years, Apple treated its various services as "sweeteners" to convince consumers to buy an iPhone, iPad and Mac.
Amazon forces you to use voice search, with no text-based option available.
