After deciding to bury the hatch, Apple and Amazon have come to some friendly terms. Aside from some Apple products available on Amazon, the eCommerce giant has agreed to stream Apple Music on its Echo smart speakers.
Apple Music comes from December 17 as an alternative to Echo smart speakers. This can be an early Christmas gift to all Apple fans, who use Amazon's echo devices to listen to music.

Amazon knows the limitations of the music service, especially compared to giants like Apple Music and Spotify. This agreement will not affect the current Amazon Music Unlimited business, as it is only a small part of a big show.
Apple Music has more than 50 million active users; Even Spotify was cut off this number earlier in May. For Apple, it's a good deal as echoes have achieved new heights while HomePod is sinking in sales figures.
Dave kept mom over the question of HomePod offering Amazon Music Unlimited support. However, users can use a solution to play music in the Amazon Music app and stream the HomePod audio through AirPlay. Everyone looks for a day when users do not need to use such tricks.
Dave wraps up, "We are committed to providing good music vendors to our customers and since we launched the Music Skill API for developers just last month, we've expanded the music selection on Alexa to include even more top-tier services. We're thrilled to bring Apple Music – one of the most popular music services in the US – to Echo customers this holiday. "
