Amazon announced today that its Music app is finally coming to the Apple TV, including the fourth-generation 'Apple TV HD', and the Apple TV 4K. In order to get the app, you'll need to be running tvOS 12 or later.
The Amazon Music app will let you listen to music from whichever streaming service you have from Amazon. That could be Music Unlimited, or it could be the more limited Prime Music, which is bundled into Amazon Prime. If you don't have either of those things, you can play music that you've purchased from Amazon.
"We believe that listeners should be able to stream music simply and easily on any device they choose," said Karolina Joynathsing, director of business development for Amazon Music. "With that in mind, our aim has been to bring listeners more ways to enjoy their favorite music. We’re thrilled to bring the Amazon Music app to Apple TV customers across the globe."
The press release notes that you can "follow along with scrolling lyrics", referring to the X-Ray Lyrics feature that has been around for a while. Apple recently launched a similar feature with Apple Music in tvOS, allowing users to see the lyrics of the song that's playing, and letting you skip to different parts of a song by clicking on a lyric.
The Amazon Music app is available now in the U.S., UK, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Mexico, Japan, and India.
