The Apple Music subscription will give you access to a huge database that comprises any genre, mood or activity of your choice, with an ability to remember tastes and preferences shared amidst devices as well. You won't be able to do stuff like say, "Hey Siri, add this to my "Upbeat Chill" playlist", or "Play my Daily Mix". However, in the time since Apple's announcement, both Amazon and Google have released their own premium smart speakers with high quality audio, which puts Apple in the awkward position of having to play catch-up. This way you can control several accessories simultaneously.
