Amazon and Google haven’t always played nicely with each other. We have seen them remove each other’s products from their stores and have developed their own rivals to their competitor’s products. However, with Android TV gradually raising its profile in the home entertainment segment, Amazon now wants its foot in the door. So it has decided to develop an official Amazon Music app for Android TV.
Countless people subscribe to Amazon Music. Some might not be aware that they do since it’s part and parcel of the Amazon Prime subscription.
The app for Amazon’s music streaming service has long been available for other Android devices and it even received Chromecast support last year. An Android TV app is now in development. The folks at AndroidPolice have spotted a Play Store listing for the TV version of Amazon Music. The app isn’t available for download just yet but interested users can pre-register for it so that they can get it as soon as it becomes available.
Pre-registrations for the Amazon Music app for Android TV are now open on the Google Play Store. The listing doesn’t mention precisely when this app is going to be released for Android TV devices. With the listing coming online now, it may not be long before that happens.
