However, Apple Music is not in the list. In May 2017, Amazon devices chief Dave Limp told Bloomberg: "We'd love to have Apple, but they're not super big on opening up Apple Music integration."

As of April 2018, Apple Music has 40 million paid subscribers and over 8 million users in free trial period. There are more than 45 million songs available on Apple Music.
