After PlayStation 5 users spotted hints at possible Apple Music integration, Sony has confirmed the music streaming service will be available on PS5 starting today. Those already subscribed to the platform can log into their account and access 90 million songs, all of which can be played before, during, or after a play session through the PS5 Game Base.
To gain access to the service, you'll first need to download the Apple Music app from the Media space on the PS5 home screen. You'll then follow some instructions to link your account. Once downloaded, look out for the Music icon within the Game Base itself; Apple Music should now be there alongside Spotify. "From there, Apple Music subscribers can find recommendations that match the game they are currently playing, or choose from a playlist in their library or other Apple Music-curated playlists for gaming."
You can even use Apple Music to view music videos, which can be minimised if you want to return to a PS5 game and the audio will continue to play. And as Erin Metzger, director of product management, notes: PS5 is now the first gaming console to have an integrated Apple Music experience.
