Apple Music on an Amazon Echo from 17th December 2018

The great news Apple & Amazon Echo / Alexa users have wanted for what seems like eternity has arrived!

As an Apple Music subscriber, a HomePod user, and having an Echo, numerous Echo Dots and an Echo Spot splattered about the house, all I can say is ‘Finally!’

Apple and Amazon have just announced that Apple Music will launch on Echo devices beginning the week of December 17.  In a blog post, Amazon explains that Apple Music subscribers will be able to ask Alexa to play their favorite songs, artist, playlists, Beats1 radio stations, and albums, all through an Echo speaker.

One example they give is the command, “Alexa, play Bebe Rexha on Apple Music.”

The integration will launch as an Apple Music skill that will need to be enabled within the Alexa app, where users will also be able to link their account to start listening to Apple Music on an Echo speaker. Apple Music will join the ranks of a few other music streaming services already supported on Echo, including Spotify, iHeartRadio, and Pandora.

Wanted : Music for Video Soundtrack

I am currently looking for some DRM free / Royalty free music to use in the soundtrack of a video I am preparing covering my #WAWIn1Week Trip.

Music Wanted!
Music Wanted!

If you are a musician and have some music that you would like to have considered for inclusion in the soundtrack then Contact Me with a link to the music.

I will review your submission and if I use it I will of course inform you and add your details to the end credits.

I will be making no money from this video, and as such am looking only DRM free / Royalty free music that you have the rights to give me permission to use.

Your reward is free exposure, my reward is good music for the video.

Thanks for looking!
