Apple Music subscribers have been able to use voice commands on Alexa devices since last year, but only in a handful of countries. Now, Alexa's support of Apple Music (opens in new tab) is reportedly expanding to additional countries, including Germany, France, Italy, and Spain, according to a new report.
With the integration live in more countries, Alexa users can experience the magic of controlling Apple Music using nothing but their voice. The integration works with any device that supports Amazon's voice assistant, such as the Echo (opens in new tab), Echo Dot (opens in new tab), and Sonos One (opens in new tab).
When the integration was first announced last year, it was quickly made available in the U.S., United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. The expanded support will only help Apple Music rise in stature as it continues its fight against Spotify.
If you choose to set Apple Music as your default service, you'll be able to play songs, artists, albums, and even Beats 1 radio.
