(Disclosure, I may receive a small referral fee when you make a purchase through this links on this post.)


Amazon formally announced their new music streaming service called Amazon Music Unlimited. Amazon Music Unlimited has a more expansive library than Amazon Prime Music. All of this will be under the umbrella of simply Amazon Music. Amazon rolled out updates to all apps and music services to a blue ‘music’ logo for the updates plans. Amazon Prime Music will continue and be available to all Prime subscribers. Amazon Music Unlimited will be $7.99/month for Prime members and for non-prime members, it will be $9.99/month. This may attract some music lovers who don’t have Prime membership to simply subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited as an ala carte service. Right now, Amazon is offering a 30 day free trial for their Unlimited Music service. From their product page description, it says Prime music has around 2 million songs where Amazon Unlimited music has ‘tens of millions’ of songs. You also have ad-free streaming, unlimited skips, and download for offline listening. Great for those who fly or go to areas where there is no Internet connection.

If you are an Echo owner, you can enroll in the Amazon Echo plan which is $3.99/month. You can use Alexa to play the song just by saying some of the lyrics, playlists, mood, and more. You will still get the same features as Prime music such as x-ray lyrics where you can follow the song as it plays.

Family plan will also be available. For the family plan, you can share the account up to 6 family members for $14.99/month or $149/year which is a $30 saving / year.
