Apple has been known to be restrictive in terms of the compatibility of its apps with other platforms, as we have seen with iMessage, iCloud, and other Apple services. However, this seems to be changing with Apple wanting to extend its services to a larger user base than ever. Mainly to grow their customer base, with services accounting for about USD 50.15 Billion in revenue this year alone.

In an attempt to do the same, Apple has officially made Apple Music available on the PlayStation 5, making it the first gaming console ever to be integrated with an Apple Music experience.

Starting from today, anyone with an active Apple Music subscription and a PS5 will be able to stream over 90 million songs, curated and personal playlists, 4K music videos, Apple Music Radio, as well as exclusive live concerts right from their console. Also, allows PlayStation 5 users to use the new Apple Music app to play background music while playing games.

To enable the Apple Music app on your PS5, follow the following steps:

  • Go to “All Apps” from your media home
  • Find and select “Apple Music,” and hit the “Download” button.

This makes Apple Music, the second Apple service made available on a console, after both Sony and Microsoft’s next-gen gaming consoles, launched with the Apple TV+ app last year.

With this new integration, it might not be surprising to see if Apple introduces its services to even more platforms, as we have seen with rumors hinting toward an exclusive Apple Music and Podcast app for Windows earlier this year, ditching the iTunes app entirely; While Apple music is already available on Android, Amazon Echo, Chrome OS, Sonos, the web, and of course, Apple’s own line-up of hardware.
