The USA have had Apple Music support on their Amazon Alexa / Echo devices since 17th December 2018. In the UK (& Ireland) we had to wait, but that wait is now over and the good news is Amazon Alexa / Echo is now supporting Apple Music in the UK and Ireland!
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.
Playstation 4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition Pre-Order Problems: If you are a keen gamer there is a good chance you found yourself in the position hundreds of us found ourselves yesterday and today. That is without a Sony Playstation 4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition Console.
What is a Sony Playstation 4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition?
Basically it is a special edition Playstation 4 Pro that celebrates the fact that Sony have now sold 500,000,000 Playstation consoles. They have limited this edition to a mere 50,000 units globally making it actually pretty limited. Limited of course means desirable to gamers, and unfortunately desirable to gamers means desirable to scalpers, or as I will refer to them from this point onwards – scumbags.
What’s so special about it?
To be honest thats a difficult question. You can regularly and easily pick up a PS4 Pro for about £300 in a bundle. This edition is £450, but comes with a camera, an upgraded 2TB hard drive and is housed in an awesome looking translucent blue case, each one individually numbered. If you don’t understand the appeal then this probably isn’t the article for you and you’d be best just moving on to the next one. If you do get it, or at least think you get it, have a look at this – I’m sure you will agree it is special!
If you are one of the many peolple experiencing issues installing Kodi on the Fire Stick at the moment when using ES File Explorer, I am here to sort your woes out straight away, and quickly.
(This seems to be happening when people are upgrading their Kodi to the new 16.1 – it is nothing to do with the upgrade so don’t be worrying about that, it is just how ES File Explorer or Amazon (more likely) are now dealing with the requests to download via their software).
I am presuming that you have got as far as the Kodi Download page, but when you are clicking on the ARM link nothing is happening, right?
So here’s what you do to get going back on your merry way…
Click on the link once, it doesn’t matter if you click more than once, all you will notice is a spinning arrow in the top right corner of the screen for a spilt second.
Now move your cursor down to the bottom right of the screen where you will see three vertical dots. Select them and click.
Now you will have an option to ‘Open’ or something very similar.
Click that and continue on installing Kodi!
Sit back, watch and enjoy!
