The PlayStation 5 is the first gaming console to add support for one of today’s most popular music and video streaming services, Apple Music. PS5 users with an Apple Music subscription can enjoy the service’s catalog of more than 90 million songs on Sony’s next-gen console beginning today, as well as other perks such as curated playlists, music videos in 4K, and Apple Music Radio. Players can listen to music before, during, or after gaming thanks to seamless integration.

From Sony:

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 a playlist in their library or other Apple Music-curated playlists for gaming.

According to recent estimates, Apple Music has between 70 to 80 million subscribers, which is impressive but far behind Spotify’s 165 million members. Apple Music’s basic (Individual) plan costs $9.99 per month and includes all of the service’s major features, such as lossless audio and spatial audio with Dolby Atmos.
