Apple Music launches on the Sony PlayStation 5, making it the first game console to support Apple’s music streaming service. In addition to playing music and videos, the integration also offers music to match the current game.

The use of Apple Music on the PlayStation 5 gives access to all music tracks from the Apple catalog – currently around 90 million songs – and also to the curated playlists, music videos in 4K resolution and Apple Music Radio. Apple Music subscribers can also access their personalized playlists based on their own preferences.

Recommendations for the current game

PlayStation 5 also supports playback via Apple Music as background music. To do this, playback can be started either before the start of a game or in between by pressing the PS button on the DualSense wireless controller and calling up the Control Center. The music function can be selected here.

Here Apple Music subscribers will find recommendations for the current game, but can also select a playlist from their media library or other playlists for games created by Apple Music. So the service should fit seamlessly into the PlayStation 5.

Videos are also running in the background

Music videos initially start in full screen mode, but then continue to run in the background when the player jumps back into the game or the home screen. The video can be called up at any time in full-screen mode and should start at the current point without interruption.

App for linking the services

In order to use Apple Music on the PS5, the Apple Music app can be downloaded from the media area of ​​the PS5, via which the Apple Music account must be linked.

Apple continues to open up to other platforms and also announced at WWDC 2020 that alternative music services can be integrated directly into the HomePod mini instead of having to resort to Bluetooth or AirPlay. So far, only Deezer has used it, and Spotify still wants to implement the function.
