How to Play Apple Music on Amazon Kindle Fire
"I just got the free 3 month trial of Apple Music. I own an iPad, have iTunes on my HP computer and own 2 Kindles. I haven't been able to load the app on the Kindles, does Apple Music even work on a Kindle?" Xenitha asked on Apple Support Communities.
Generally speaking, the Kindle Fire needs to download it's apps from the Amazon App store, which does not have an Apple Music app. There is one for Android devices in general, but that is from Google's app store. And you cannot install it on a Fire device unless you jailbreak and sideload the app.
What's worse, Apple Music combines subscription-based music streaming with global radio-like programming and a social feature, which can only enable users to stream music instead of purchase music. You pay money to unlock access to Apple Music's entire catalogue, but you don't actually own the music you listen to.
Apple Music is available for all iPhones, iPads, iPod touch models, Apple TV, Apple Watch and your computer. Obviously, Amazon Kindle Fire is not included. Although the Kindle Fire supports a number of digital audio file formats, including the popular MP3 type, it can't support playing Apple Music directly.
