To increase its efforts to promote Apple Music on PlayStation, Apple has partnered with Sony and is now offering a free Apple Music subscription of up to six months to all Sony PlayStation 5 owners.
While Apple already offers a one-month free trial of Apple Music, PlayStation 5 owners can extend the free trial for up to five additional months, making the Apple Music subscription free for new Apple Music users for six months. In simple terms, the promotion combines Apple’s one-month trial with a five-month offer from PlayStation. And if you’ve already taken advantage of the 1-month trial in the past, you can still get a free 5-month Apple Music subscription.
PS5 owners can redeem the free Apple Music offer before November 15, 2024. The offer can also only be redeemed on the PS5 console, and once the offer is claimed, you can enjoy the free Apple Music service on any compatible device, provided you log in with the same account.
According to PlayStation, you can stream any song on Apple Music in the background while you play a game. To start Apple Music streaming in the background, all you have to do is press the PS button on the controller, open the music panel, and then play a song. Not only this, your PlayStation 5 will even suggest songs relevant to the game you’re playing.
