apple music to Alexa devices

Stream music on Amazon Alexa devices

Amazon Alexa is a "virtual assistant" developed by Amazon Lab126, which powers Amazon Echo, Tap, and Dot and is designed around your voice. It is capable of voice interaction, music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, playing audiobooks, and providing weather, traffic, and other real time information.

Undoubtly, Alexa is great at streaming music. Ask Alexa to play a song, artist, album, playlist or genre, and she'll stream it from the Amazon Prime Music Library. She'll also work with services such as Pandora and Spotify, as well as Internet radio services such as iHeartRadio and TuneIn.

What about playing Apple Music on Alexa?

Apple Music is not available on Amazon devices or other Alexa-enabled products. So you can't ask Alexa to stream apple music songs/playlists directly from apple music streaming service through your Alexa device. HOWEVER…

You are allowed to upload up to 250 songs to your Amazon music library for free, which means no need to subscribe Amazon Music or Amazon Music Unlimited, you can still use it as a bridge to connect your apple music songs with Alexa so that you can ask Alexa to play your apple music songs and control playback with simple voice commands.
