How to set up the Amazon Fire TV Stick

Pick up the Fire TV remote, hit the mic button, and tell Fire TV to "Play Apple Music". Amazon says that Apple Music will also be available on Fire TV and Echo devices there "in the coming weeks". We pit the Roku Streaming Stick+ against Amazon's Fire TV Stick 4K to help you decide which one will be the best fit in your living room. To set it up, enable the Apple Music skill inside the Alexa app and link your accounts. There's no app, just the Alexa Skill. But once it does, it's all Apple Music for you, all the time. The company has long made its services available only on its own devices, and now that is business focus has shifted towards services-based revenue, the company is aggressively pushing its services and bringing them to more and more devices. The new support has arrived in the Apple Music skill, which has already been available for Echo device owners to utilize. We like its large music library, exclusive content, offline playback feature, Siri and Apple Watch integration, and more.

Apple's on the offensive with services right now.

Music streaming is a popular use for smart speakers, but the particular speaker you have dictates which services you have access to. While new subscribers get a three-month free trial, the service does require a $9.99 monthly subscription. You'll need to have your Apple ID login credentials handy.

First of all, you'll need to choose between the Amazon Fire TV Stick and it's upgraded sibling, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K.

Along with this music streaming plan, it's thought Apple could soon launch a similar service for video.
