This week, Sony’s PS5 became the first console to introduce an integrated Apple Music experience, unlocking over 90 million songs to listen to while you play.
As the PlayStation.Blog reports, the integration went live yesterday and will work for anyone with an active Apple Music subscription. As well as tens of millions of songs to listen to, your PS5 will have access to Apple’s curated playlists, personalized playlists, and Apple Music Radio. If you’re done gaming, it’s also possible to sit back and enjoy 4K music videos through your console.
Access to Apple Music is through an app, with the option to start the app from the PS5 menu or during gameplay (press the PS button, then access the Control Panel and Music Function card). That way, if you aren’t enjoying the music offered in a game, you can opt to listen to Apple Music tracks in the background instead. Music videos can be played, paused, and seamlessly restarted at any time.
