This is a big step because Echo had long supported Spotify are now giving services to Apple. Apple has ensured it and these services should be available to the Apple fans where they want them. Before Echo made this up-date, the Apple Music users had either to connect their device to a Blue Tooth or they had to buy an Apple HomePod.
