Spotify has been a music streaming possibility on the PS5 since it launched in November, providing you with the choice to take heed to your favourite music when taking part in video games. Quickly, although, the console would possibly get help for one more service: Apple Music.
The primary clue got here earlier this week when a Reddit consumer posted a picture of Apple Music showing within the PS5’s music menu. The choice apparently confirmed up after they made a brand new account and tried to hyperlink it with Spotify. It appears the app didn’t work, although — the Reddit consumer additionally shared a photograph of a message that mentioned, “This app is playable solely on PS4,” which Eurogamer says is a typical error message when an app isn’t accessible.
Eurogamer mentioned it was additionally able to see the Apple Music option when making a brand new US account, although it wasn’t capable of reproduce doing so. The Apple Music possibility didn’t seem once I tried making a brand new US account whereas writing this text.
The inconsistency of the Apple Music possibility means that the Reddit consumer and Eurogamer might have gotten an early peek at one thing that Sony and Apple have within the works. The 2 firms labored collectively not too long ago on an Apple TV Plus promotion for PS5 owners, so it appears there’s a relationship there. Apple introduced Apple Music to Samsung smart TVs final yr, displaying that it’s keen to increase the app’s availability past Apple platforms. And the app is showing simply days earlier than Apple’s October 18th event, which might be a possible venue for Apple and Sony to announce that the app is coming to PS5.
Sony and Apple didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark.
