Samsung Smart TVs the first to bring Apple Music app

Samsung says its smart TVs account for 80 percent of app-supportive internet-connecting TVs in the world.

Apple and Samsung surprised a lot of people past year when they brought an iTunes app to Samsung TVs.

Still, having Apple Music, alongside Apple TV on your Samsung Smart TV is one step closer to having your favorite apps in one location. So if you don't have a TV from Samsung, you will just have to wait for now and hope Apple brings the Apple Music app to more smart TVs.

Samsung Electronics said that it is the first TV brand to integrate Apple Music on its Smart TV platform, enabling access to over 60 million songs ad-free, thousands of curated playlists, music videos and live radio. If you have a previous Smart TV, you should ask the Samsung support if it will arrive at some point, although it seems complicated that it is. Apple Music costs $9.99 monthly, $4.99 for students, and $14.99 for families of up to six people.

Recently, Apple announced that it is expanding Apple Music streaming service to 52 additional countries.

Apple Music is available on Samsung Smart TV models from 2018 through 2020. Customers can also access new "At Home With Apple Music" content, including group FaceTime chats with artists, special interviews, and more "to help create a sense of connection and community during this time of distancing". In 2017, for instance, longtime rival Microsoft said Apple's iTunes music player would be available via the Windows online app store, particularly noteworthy considering the long rivalry between the two tech giants.

While Apple Music was already available on Apple TV, the music streaming service was limited to the Cupertino-based company's hardware, up until now.
