Samsung’s Smart TVs have been receiving quite a few updates lately. A few days ago, they received support for YouTube TV. Now, on Saturday the company announced that soon customers will be able to listen to Amazon Music through their Smart TVs, becoming the first third-party devices to connect to the service.

The company says that users will be able to browse their libraries, playlists and access recommendations and stations through the system. The service will also be accessible through other Samsung audio products, such as soundbars and wireless speakers as well.

Currently, users can listen to streaming services such as Spotify through Samsung’s SmartTVs but  this might be an appealing alternative to Prime users who own a Samsung TV, and who don’t have an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot in their home. The company didn’t say exactly when users will be able to begin listening; saying only that it will be “available starting this month.” The functionality is limited to models from 2015 and newer.
