    Hey,

    I just received a new Amazon Echo and therefore I had to switch to Spotify.
    Honestly, I really miss Apple Music, because it works much better, has better music recommendation, cheaper, and includes lyrics to every song.

    I was wondering if you think Apple Music will ever be supported using Alexa or you have any idea how can I make them work together?

    Thanks,

    Would we be able to play our uploaded music playlists via alexa?

    Is it just in Settings>Music Services in the Alexa App where you can add it?

    Or do you have to search for a specific skill?

    Hope it is in the UK too, as I know how good Amazon are at announcing new features only to find out it is only in the US.

    Yes, it's just in the Settings. You just add the music service and set as default if you want.

    For one unlike other music services one can’t see any music or playlists, only previously played in Alexia app, speech commands only other than previously played, no advanced Apple Music commands or searches like with Siri, but hey it’s version one. I might still use Bluetooth when I want to jump around in music and not wanting to use voice commands every time
    In the US you go to setting>music>Apple music and select,
    it takes you to the skill and enable.

    Yeah this amazon echo with Apple Music is only valid for US Apple Music accounts and us location for now.. wonder when they will roll it for other nations?

    Secondly I doubt you can play playlists of your own uploaded songs which sucks.

    Have you updated the Amazon Alexa App? Also try rebooting/restarting everything
