Apple has launched a new Xbox app to expand its music-streaming service to Microsoft’s gaming platform. With the latest release, Microsoft Xbox users will be able to access Apple Music on various gaming consoles including Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Series S. The new Apple Music app for Microsoft Xbox comes with support for background playback alongside various other features. Let us take a look at the details.
Microsoft Xbox Gaming Consoles Get Apple Music App
The Apple Music app is now available on Xbox consoles to allow users to play their favourite tracks to their heart’s content. While it provides similar experiences on other game consoles and smart TVs, the support had been missing for the Xbox gaming consoles. In the absence of the app, Xbox owners had to resort to involving third-party software. The Xbox store already supports various other music streaming services such as Spotify, Amazon Music, and Pandora. The Apple Music app has eventually joined the lot.
