Tip: Connecting and Using Apple Music with Alexa

Tip: Connecting and Using Apple Music with Alexa

Amazon and Apple have recently delivered Apple Music for owners of Alexa-enabled devices. Amazon has added Apple Music as another option in its list of Music services. Setting it up is as easy as choosing it, enabling it, linking it, and using it. We’ve seen some websites suggest that you have to enable a special Apple skill to get this to work, but that’s not the case. Amazon has done a good job integrating Apple Music into its normal music service line up.

To set it up:

[1] In the Alexa mobile app (not available from the web version of Alexa), go to Settings and then locate Music under Alexa Preferences.

[2] Once in the Music area, choose the option to Link New Service.

[3] Select Apple Music on the Link Service page.

[4] Once you select the Apple Music option, the Alexa app will walk you through connecting and linking your Apple Music account to Alexa.

That’s it!

Now, when you want to listen to music from Apple Music, just end your request with “…on Apple Music

For example:

Alexa, play music by Queen on Apple Music


Alexa, play Beats 1 radio on Apple Music
