Amazon Music Unlimited is a fresh and live music service from Amazon. Amazon Unlimited offer its customers a wide range of songs and thousands of organized playlists and personalized stations. If you already have Amazon Echo, Echo Dot or Amazon Tap then you can sign up for Music unlimited for $4 per month.
Amazon prime member can sign up for Music Unlimited for $8 per month or $79 per year. For being a Prime member one has to pay $99 per year which offer you free 2-day shipping, TV and movie shows streaming and access to new Prime Reading Library. Amazon is all set to offer its non-prime members an all-you-can-stream plan at $10 per month.
Amazon also claims a new pricing tier later this year. It is of a Family plan which allows about 6 people an Amazon Music Unlimited for $15 per month or $149 per year. An advantage of this with respect to fellow competitors is that Amazon will offer you two months free streaming if you pay in advance for full year.
Amazon has redrawn its music apps for Android, iOS and desktop. It will allow you to ask or choose for an appropriate playlist to Amazon Echo with its new controls to the Alexa voice assistant. Alexa will stream your favourite artist’s songs and for that you need to just ask by name. If you know only the song and not the name of the artist all you need to do is quote some lines of the song. Alexa senses your taste from your listening behaviour and thus if you ask for “running music” you will get in accordance to it.
Amazon Music Unlimited will be available in US by launch and will reach UK, Germany and Austria by 2017.
