Music from Apple is a fantastic alternative to Spotify and other music streaming apps – but how do you get Apple Music on Roku? Since its launch in June 2015, Apple Music has developed into a highly competent music service. Have a library of more than 90 thousand music, thousands of selected playlists, hi-fi/space audio, live radio programs, sharing sources, etc.
Here it is, one area where Spotify has had a lot of advantages over device compatibility. Simply put, Spotify is available on almost any device with an internet connection. Serious. It supports all major platforms like Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, etc. But there is much more to it. Spotify is also our top performing Sounds, on most game consoles and does not have access to Spotify’s ‘Car Thing’. That is in all parts†
But Apple Music isn’t relaxed in the availability department either. Apple Music is not limited to Apple hardware. You can also listen to it on Android, Windows, powerful Alexa, Google Assistant devices, Samsung and LG smart TVs and much more. And from April 2022, Apple Music will also be available on Roku. Since you have a fairly recent Roku device, getting the Apple Music app is as easy as opening the Channel Store and downloading it.
To start using Apple Music on your Roku device, use the remote to go to “Streaming Channels” in the menu on the left, type “Apple Music” in the search bar and download the app. The Apple Music app should be available on all Roku streaming players, Roku TVs, and Roku Streambar.
Once the Apple Music app has been downloaded to your Roku, you can find it on your home page with all of its other channels/applications. Navigate to the Apple Music channel, open and follow the on-screen instructions to sign in to your account. If you already have an account, you can enter your email address and login and start listening right away. If you still don’t have Apple Music but want to register, here’s how to register. Anyone who joins Apple Music from their Roku is eligible for a one-month free review, after which they pay $9.99 per month for the individual subscription (or $14.99 per month for the family subscription).
After logging into your account, using the Apple Music Roku application works like any other device. You can listen to the library complete with music and playlists, view the lyrics of compatible music, download radio stations, save music to your library and watch music videos in 4K resolution. It is the same Music from Apple experience you’ll find on an Apple TV or iPhone – hardly on Roku.
