In the stream of media apps that come to consoles, there are very few prominent services that are not already available. At least, when considering Xbox & PlayStation: Nintendo Switch is five years-old and users are still awaiting basic applications like Netflix, Paramount+, or HBO Max. Regardless, the time waiting for more additions is less painful from Microsoft and Sony.

Back in 2017, the Xbox firm went ahead welcoming Spotify to the platform. While a fundamental service on PlayStation 4 since launch, the service was absent on Xbox One until then. Additionally, Apple TV made its way to Xbox just in time for the release of the Xbox Series X|S back in 2020.

Now, Apple Music is officially here for Xbox users giving more option as to what service you can use when playing games. Similarly to Spotify already on console, you can play your music in the background whilst simultaneously playing. Again, this is no foreign addition to PlayStation as users received the app last fall.

“Experience music like never before. Apple Music gets you closer to the songs, albums and artists you love. Get unlimited access to millions of songs and your entire music library,” the description for the application reads from the Xbox Store. Users can even partake in the free month trial for Apple Music via Xbox if you have not already signed-up for the service.

As for Apple involving gaming into its platform natively, the firm already implemented support for Xbox Series X|S & DualSense controllers for iOS devices in the past. More recently, the firm integrated compatibility for Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons and Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers with the latest iOS 16 firmware update.
