Apple is really starting to branch out its services to other platforms, other than its own. Apple Music is already on the Echo speakers and has been for over a year, Apple Music has been on Sonos for a while now and the Apple TV was added to a bunch of smart TVs earlier this year in preparation for the launch of Apple TV+.
And now, Apple Podcasts is now available in the US only at the moment on Amazon Echo speakers. Simply connect your Apple ID to the Alexa app and you’re good to go. It seems pretty well baked in, you can tell Alexa to use Apple Podcasts as your default podcast player and even carry on from where you were on another device.
This integration is available today, but only in the US currently.
