How to play Apple Music using Alexa on your Amazon Echo speaker

Elaine Thompson/APYou can connect other music apps besides Amazon Music, like Apple Music, to Alexa on your Amazon speaker.

There are many audio streaming services out there, but if you have an Amazon speaker, like the Echo, chances are that you mostly use Amazon Music, since that’s what Amazon speakers default to.

However, if you have Apple Music, or are simply ready to make a change, you can luckily connect Apple Music to your Amazon Alexa speaker and use the platform to play music. Once connected, you can play music from your Apple Music account on any Alexa-enabled smart speaker.
