Amazon ships Amazon Music streaming app for the Apple TV
The world continues to freeze over, particularly for Amazon Prime subscribers as Amazon has just released the Amazon Music app for the Apple TV.
What Amazon says
“We believe that listeners should be able to stream music simply and easily on any device they choose,” said Karolina Joynathsing, director of business development for Amazon Music.
“With that in mind, our aim has been to bring listeners more ways to enjoy their favorite music. We’re thrilled to bring the Amazon Music app to Apple TV customers across the globe.”
What does this mean?
It means Apple TV user in the U.S., UK, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Mexico, Japan, and India can now download the Amazon Music app from the App Store for Apple TV and get access to millions of songs and thousands of playlists and stations, Amazon claims.
What do you get?
Streaming extends to Amazon music playlists, and lets Amazon Music users search for tracks and albums. And in a nod to Apple’s own Apple Music, you can also access scrolling lyrics while the music plays.
What makes the move double interesting is that Amazon Prime members get access to Amazon Music and movies for free (in some countries), along with a range of other benefits that may make the service highly competitive for some Apple TV users.
