Amazon’s new music streaming service


Amazon is launching its new music streaming service, Amazon Unlimited Music, in the UK. The service was unveiled in the US last month. The service offers 40 million tracks, Android and iOS mobile apps, and both handpicked and algorithmically generated playlists.

In the UK, Amazon Unlimited Music will cost £9.99 a month for non-Prime members or £7.99 a month / £79 a year (that’s £6.58 a month) for those that are subscribed to Prime. There’s also a deal where you can get access to Unlimited Music on just a single Echo or Echo Dot for £3.99 a month. To be clear, that means you can’t use the service on phones, tablets, or PCs, but you get the same music catalog from your Echo speaker at a cheaper monthly cost.

This service looks great on paper, but only time will tell if it will be a hit!
