For those of you who love to listen to music in addition to playing games, Apple Music is launching on PS5 – the very first gaming console to introduce an integrated Apple Music experience, bringing their expansive music catalog to PS5 players globally.
PS5 users with an Apple Music subscription can enjoy more than 90 million songs from Apple Music, tens of thousands of curated playlists, music videos in 4K, Apple Music Radio streaming today’s hits, classics and country live, and personalized playlists based on their music preferences.
PS5 offers seamless integration with the Apple Music streaming service with background music and music video playback, so players can listen before, during, or after their gameplay session.
Background Music Play
PS5 users can either start the Apple Music app before hopping into a game, or during gameplay by pressing the PS 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 their own 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 PS5’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.
