Apple Music Now Available On Xbox, With Background Playback

Apple Music Now

Apple Music is now on the Xbox Store, more than two years after the music app was found in the Xbox backend by well-known leaker ALumia_Italia. There’s been no official announcement from Apple or Microsoft, but it’s live and working for Apple Music subscribers.

Apple Music is a subscription-based music service, so there’s no free playback option here. If you are a subscriber though, or if you’re looking for a new paid music sub, this finally provides an alternative to Spotify on Xbox. Plus, there’s a free one-month trial for new members (in the UK at least) if you fancy trying it out.

We haven’t checked out the app just yet, but it seems to be going down very well with Apple Music subscribers on Reddit, who are happy to see the music option arrive on Xbox.

Here are Apple Music features, from the store page description:

  • Stream millions of songs while you game, all ad-free.
  • Enjoy music videos on your big screen and check out curated music video playlists.
  • Follow along to your favorite songs with time-synced lyrics.
