Amazon Echo refers to a smart speaker developed by Amazon.com. This device connects to a voice-controlled intelligent personal assistant service Alexa, which makes it be capable of doing some voice interactions. Users are able to use voice control to make Amazon Echo stream and play music, set alarm, or even order a pizza, get a Uber, etc. This hand-free product has greatly offered convenience for people to enjoy music and their life.
Since Amazon Echo is considered as a great music speaker, you must get to learn the ways to play Apple Music on it. In this post, I’d like to introduce two simple ways to help you play Apple Music through Amazon Echo.
Part 1. Play Apple Music on Amazon Echo Through Bluetooth
Like most electronic products such as mobile phone, computer, etc, Amazon Echo also supports the Bluetooth function. As a result, you can pair your iPhone, iPad, etc with the Amazon Echo, and play Apple Music through Bluetooth, which is quite simple to operate. Let's look at the procedures:
Step 1. Turn on Apple Echo, say "Pair". Alexa will receive your order and make Amazon Echo be ready to pair.
Step 2. Switch on the Bluetooth on your Apple devices.
Step 3. Select Echo from the list. Then you would get the warning that the connection is successful.
Step 4. Play Apple Music on your devices, and the songs would be played out through Amazon Echo. Enjoy the music!
Part 2. Remove DRM from Apple Music And Import The Songs to Amazon Echo
If you want to listen to Apple Music without your phone or pad nearby, you can try to upload Apple Music to Amazon Echo. But you should be aware of that you cannot transfer the songs to Amazon Echo directly since they are well-protected by Apple FairPlay DRM, which protects Apple's digital contents from being copied or transferred to other devices.
To import the songs to Amazon Echo, you have to remove the DRM encryption first. The program - TuneFab Apple Music Converter can be a good choice for DRM removal. The conversion speed can reach 16X. This app also helps to convert the format into plain MP3, AC3, AIFF, etc. Select one which is supported by Amazon Echo, and after removal, you can upload the music to it directly. A trial version is provided for you to experience the professional DRM removing.
• Help Apple Music get rid of DRM protection;

You are able to select the output format, output folder, as well as bit rate, codec, and other data of the songs.
These settings are optional. Clicking on the "Options" on the top left, you can set the conversion speed from 1x to 16x, which can make the conversion go faster and free much of your time. Besides, you can rename or sort the output songs according to their title, album, or artist.

You can drag and drop the songs in the output folder you have saved in step 3 directly to the "Upload" section under "Actions" on the right side, or click on it and select the songs you want to upload.

Besides Amazon Echo, you can play DRM-free Apple Music in many ways also. For example, transfer Apple Music to SD card and play them on Android devices, or directly play on TV, PS4 through USB stick.
