You can now stream Apple Music on your Amazon Fire TV

Amazon Fire TV finally gets Apple Music streaming Apple Music is Now Available on The Amazon Fire TV

Amazon's third-generation Fire TV dongle was recently discontinued and replaced by the Fire TV stick 4K.

For U.S. customers, you can now use your Fire TV device to listen to Apple Music.

Users in the United States can now use Apple Music to play music on their Fire TV devices, both from the streaming boxes and sticks. Customers can enable this function by opening the Alexa app on their phone and setting up the Apple Music skill.

Once enabled, voice commands of "Alexa, play Beats 1 on Apple Music" or "Alexa, play my favorites playlist on Apple Music" will get you going.

This is just another small step in Apple's transition to an increasingly services-oriented business, with those services available on a growing number of devices and ecosystems.

Apple's on the offensive with services right now. This became more prominent when it was announced at CES 2019 that Samsung smart TVs will make their platform available for iTunes. Google Home devices is a potential, as we saw a few weeks ago. New Apple Music subscribers can get a 3-Month Free Trial to access 50 million songs from all major record labels.

Those across the pond have been able to stream music via Apple's subscription service since December.

"Customers will also be able to ask Alexa to stream expert-made radio stations centred on popular genres like Hip-Hop, decades like the 80s, and even music from around the world, like K-Pop". If you've already done this for an Echo, you won't need to do it again for the Fire TV, it'll just be there.

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