Amazon Introduces Music Unlimited

Oct 13, 2016

Amazon introduced Amazon Music Unlimited, an on-demand music service. Amazon says Music Unlimited makes discovering new music or listening to favorites easier and more fun than ever with a redesigned Amazon Music app as well as with innovative new Alexa voice controls.

Millions of Prime members already stream music on Amazon Prime every month. The Prime catalog has grown to more than two million songs and over one thousand hand-curated playlists and personalized stations. With the launch of Amazon Music Unlimited, Prime members who want even more music have access to a catalog of tens of millions of songs and thousands of hand-curated playlists and personalized stations at a Prime member price of $7.99 per month or $79 per year (which equals only$6.58 per month).

Since the debut of Echo nearly two years ago, music consistently has been one of the most popular activities on Echo; now Amazon Music has reimagined music listening on Echo with new Alexa voice controls that turn your Echo into a personalized jukebox. No searching or browsing required…just ask. 

Amazon Music also offers behind-the-scenes artist commentary about their music, called Side-by-Sides. Side-by-Sides are available exclusively on Amazon Music from top artists such as The Chainsmokers, Jason Aldean, Lindsey Stirling, Norah Jones, OneRepublic and Kongos – with more being added all the time.

Amazon is offering an exclusive “for Echo” subscription plan for only $3.99 per month, with full access to Amazon Music Unlimited on a single Echo, Echo Dot, or Amazon Tap. To start a free trial to the “for Echo” plan, just ask “Alexa, start my Music Unlimited free trial.”
