Amazon has announced that it will be making the Apple Music streaming service available on its range of speakers.

Apple launched Apple Music in 2015 in over 100 countries worldwide,  includes the 24 hour streaming radio station Beats 1 and a catalog of 50 million songs.

You will be able to request your Echo device to play individual songs, music by artist, playlists made by Apple Music’s editors, as well as curated genre based radio stations including Apple’s Beats 1. 

To use Apple Music you will need to enable the skill in the Alexa app. The new skill will be available in time for Christmas on December 17th but it is currently unclear which regions beyond the US it will be available in at launch.

Amazon has a large selection of Echo devices to choose from US$24.99 to US$229.99
