Ever since Sony announced its latest gaming console, the PS5, it has offered Spotify as a music streaming platform for the console, allowing users to listen to their most liked songs while gaming.
It seems that apart from this, another popular service will soon get support on the PS5, with Apple Music supposedly coming to the PS5 as a music streaming service.
The first hints of this coming to the PS5 came after a Reddit user took the platform to share a picture of Apple Music making an appearance in the music menu of the PS5.
What Does the Reddit Post Suggest When it Comes to Apple Music Support for the PS5
It seems that this particular option popped up after the user made a new account and tried to link their PS5 to Spotify. The app however seems to have failed to work, with the user sharing a message that mentions “This app is playable only on PS4″, which as per Eurogamer is a standard error message.
Furthermore, Eurogamer says that it was also able to see Apple Music show up in the options when making a new US account, although it could not get it to work.
This inconsistency when it comes to the showcase of this app suggests that both the user and the publication have likely gotten a peek at a future update that Sony and Apple have been working on for some time.
Gizchina News of the week
For those unaware, the two companies have a history of working together, since Apple has worked with Sony for Apple TV Plus promotions on the PS5.
Earlier, Apple added Apple Music to Samsung’s smart TV, suggesting that it was open to expand the availability of this application beyond Apple’s platforms.
The news of this app appearing comes days before the October 18 event where Apple is likely to announce a few products, with this event also being a good chance to announce this partnership with Sony.
What Else is Sony Working on?
It should be made clear right away that we are not talking about installing the user interface of the Chinese company on Sony devices. The Japanese manufacturer will only take a number of Flyme’s features and adapt them to work on their smartphones.
