PlayStation 5 users with an Apple Music subscription can enjoy over 90 million songs from Apple Music through “seamless integration” with the streaming service. It offers both background music and music video playback, allowing players to listen before, during, or after gameplay sessions.
Get the details below.
Background Music Play
PlayStation 5 users can either start the Apple Music app before hopping into a game, or during gameplay by pressing the PlayStation button on the DualSense wireless controller to access the Control Center and select the Music Function card.
From there, Apple Music subscribers can find recommendations that match the game they are currently playing, or choose from a playlist in their library or other Apple Music-curated playlists for gaming.
Seamless Music Video Playback
Apple Music subscribers can also find and watch music videos from a wide selection of artists in the Apple Music app. Start by playing the video in full screen; if you decide you want to go back to your gameplay or navigate elsewhere on the PlayStation 5’s home screen, the audio from the music video will continue to play. If you want to go back to the music video, it’ll also pick up seamlessly from wherever you are in the song, with no interruption to the music.
We hope you enjoy Apple Music on PlayStation 5. To get started, PlayStation 5 owners can download the Apple Music app from the Media space on PlayStation 5, and follow the on-screen instructions to link their Apple Music account. For more information, please visit our website.
