Apple Music Is Finally Available On Amazon Echo Speakers
The given time frame was mid-December and the company stood correctly to its words. The service is now finally live on Amazon Echo speakers. You can now connect your Apple Music account with Echo speakers through the Alexa app and use it via voice commands through Alexa.
Once you have connected your account with Alexa, you can set Apple Music as your default music library source. This will allow you to initiate music requests without telling Alexa which service to use every time.
As for controls, Alexa will have the ability to access your personal music library, playlists and more. Alexa has the ability to control music playback, details on the current music being played as well as playing Apple Music on grouped speakers created in the Alexa app. There are features which are not supported by the HomePod like setting alarms to music. In addition to this, there's also a music automation support called Routines.

For instance, you cannot add songs playing on Apple Music station to your library via Alexa. Nonetheless, it is a great start for Echo speaker owners who have also subscribed to Apple's music streaming service.
