You can now connect your Apple Music account to Amazon’s Alexa and play your favorite tunes on your Echo speaker. Here’s how.
Introduction: How to Connect Apple Music to Alexa?
If you’re like many people, you probably have both an Amazon Echo and an Apple Music subscription. So why not connect the two and have the best of both worlds? Here’s how to connect your Apple Music account to your Amazon Echo so you can enjoy your music hands-free.
What is Apple Music?
Apple Music is a streaming service that offers access to over 50 million songs. You can also find music videos, podcasts, and other media on Apple Music. You can sign up for a subscription to Apple Music, or you can access it with an Apple ID that has an active iCloud subscription. If you have an Echo device, you can connect your Apple Music account and play music on your Echo device.
What is Alexa?
Alexa is a voice-activated assistant that is part of the Amazon Echo family of devices. Alexa can be used to play music, answer questions, make phone calls, send text messages, set alarms, check the weather, and much more. You can even ask Alexa to play games with you or control smart home devices.
One of the many things you can do with Alexa is connect it to Apple Music. This allows you to stream your favorite songs and albums from Apple Music using your Echo device. In order to connect Apple Music to Alexa, you will need an Apple Music subscription and an Echo device that supports streaming music (such as the Echo Dot or Echo Plus).
Why Connect Apple Music to Alexa?
There are a few reasons you might want to connect your Apple Music account to your Alexa device. One is convenience: if you have both an Amazon Echo and an iPhone, it can be useful to be able to control your music playback with either device.
Another reason is accessibility: Apple Music offers a great variety of songs, albums, and playlists, but if you don’t have an iOS device, you can’t access it. Connecting your Apple Music account to Alexa gives you the best of both worlds: the accessibility of Amazon’s platform with the vast library of music available through Apple Music.

Tips for Using Apple Music with Alexa
If you’re an Apple Music subscriber, you can ask Alexa to play your favorite songs, artists, and albums—or any of the music in your Apple Music library. You can also ask Alexa to stream any of the music stations in Apple Music. Here are some tips for making the most of your music experience with Alexa.
To get started, first make sure that you have an Apple Music subscription and that you’ve downloaded the Amazon Alexa app on your iOS device. Then, open the app and go to Settings > Music & Media > Link New Service. Tap on Apple Music and sign in with your Apple ID to link your account.
Once you’ve linked your Apple Music account, you can start asking Alexa to play your favorite songs, artists, or albums. Just say “Alexa, play [song name]” or “Alexa, play [artist name].” You can also ask Alexa to stream any of the radio stations in Apple Music by saying “Alexa, play [station name] station.”
If you want more control over what’s playing, you can use voice commands like “Alexa, skip” or “Alexa, next” to navigate through songs. You can also ask Alexa to play music from a specific genre or mood by saying “Alexa, play some [genre] music” or “Alexa, play some [mood] music.” And if you want to hear something specific from your own library, just say “Alexa, play my [library type].”
Apple Music isn’t just for listening at home—you can also take it with you on the go. If you have an Echo device that’s set up as a portable speaker (like the Echo Dot with Clock), you can ask Alexa to connect wirelessly and begin streaming Apple Music directly from your device. Just say “Alexa, connect,” and once Alexa confirms that she’s connected wirelessly, ask her to begin playing something from your library.
Troubleshooting Apple Music with Alexa
If you’re having trouble connecting your Apple Music account to Alexa, there are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue.

Next, check that the region on your Echo device is set to the same region as your Apple Music account. You can do this by going into the Settings menu on your Echo device and selecting ‘Device Options’.
If you’re still having trouble, try uninstalling and reinstalling the Apple Music skill in the Alexa app. To do this, open the Alexa app and go to the ‘Skills’ tab. Search for ‘Apple Music’ and then select ‘Enable Skill’. Once the skill has been installed, sign in with your Apple ID.
