It seems that Amazon doesn't have any issues with Apple putting its wireless services on any of its products. The move follows Apple Music's launch on the Amazon Echo past year (via CNBC).

In what would have been radical change a few years ago, your Amazon Fire TV can now stream songs from the Apple Music service. Simply use the command "Play today's hits on Apple Music" or whatever artist/song you wish to listen to and your Amazon Fire TV will automatically start playing it. To set it up, enable the Apple Music skill inside the Alexa app and link your accounts. It supports regular HD streaming, and now comes with a beefed up Alexa voice remote bundled in (as long as you purchase it directly from Amazon). There's no app, just the Alexa Skill.

"We're thrilled to bring Apple Music - one of the most popular music services in the USA - to Echo customers this holiday". This new approach became evident at CES 2019 where Apple announced it would soon begin streaming iTunes to Samsung smart TVs.

No Man's Sky Beyond Update Arrives This Summer
Adam Bankhurst is a news writer for IGN who is continuously impressed with the level of support for No Man's Sky , which he loves. In the press release, Murray said that each update to No Man's Sky has been more successful than the last, Next especially so.

What other services would you like to see Apple Music come to? Just this week Spotify announced its Premium subscribers will now get Hulu for free, a move likely meant to pre-empt Apple, which we expect will be bundled its new video streaming service (at least optionally) with Apple Music. Amazon says Apple Music will come to the Fire TV in the United Kingdom in the coming weeks.

You can choose Apple Music as the default music provider for Alexa, if desired.

Google Home units previously made their platform available for Apple Music, but it was only for a brief period of time.
