Now, Apple is essentially promoting another company’s products, Amazon’s Echo smart speakers, by telling iPhone users that they now support Apple Music, 9to5Mac noticed.

The Alexa powered Echo devices are by far the most popular smart speakers on the market right now, so the addition of Apple Music to them is a notable update since there is probably a huge overlap between iPhone users and Echo owners. Men, Apple har ikke bare sin egen smarte speaker, den HomePod, men også en voice assistent som er en konkurrent til Alexa. Granted, the HomePod is in the premium segment with its price tag of $ 350, while Echo devices are on the budget side, but still, it’s uncharacteristic of Apple to give a shout out to another company, even if it will benefit it in the process. .
