We’re thrilled to bring Apple Music – one of the most popular music services in the US – to Echo customers this holiday.”
All you would have to do is build up your skill with Alexa and then sign in with your Apple account to complete the integration process. Apart from this, there's no word if Apple is partnering with other smart speakers from companies like Sonos, Bose, and others.
