Apple has brought the Apple Music app to Roku devices.
The iPhone maker’s music streaming service is now available on any Roku device including Roku streaming players, Roku TV models, and Roku premium audio products like the Roku Streambar Pro.
Apple Music offers access to over 90 million songs and 30,000 expert-curated playlists ad-free on the Apple Music app. The Apple Music app also allows users to watch music videos in 4K on compatible devices and sing along to their favourite songs with time-synced lyrics.
Roku users can sign-up to Apple Music through the Roku channel store for a 1-month free trial, after which point plans are available from US$9.99 per month.
This is the latest evidence of Roku’s growing platform business. Last week, the company announced that the platform unit grew 39% year-over-year to US$365 million during Q1 2022. Users consumed 20.8 billion hours of streamed content in the quarter.
