If you’re an Amazon Prime member you know all of the benefits you get for $99 per year. Free TV shows, movies, books and best of all, free two-day shipping on millions of items. If you’re a Prime member and own an Echo, Dot or Tap you qualify to try Amazon’s Unlimited music service free for a month. Similar to Google Play Music and Spotify, Amazon’s Unlimited Music gives you ad-free music with options to listen to millions of songs. If you want Amazon’s Unlimited music plan just for you smart Amazon devices, it will only cost $3.99 per month. If you want the all-inclusive plan, where you can download and listen to any music on any device, it’s $7.99 per month for Prime Members. Amazon also offers a family plan for six members for just $14.99 per month. Family plan pricing is the same as what you would find with Google Play Music and Spotify, but the single membership price of $7.99 is $2 cheaper per month in comparison.
When you combine the power of Unlimited Music with the smarts of the Echo, you can ask questions like,”Play the song with the lyrics…” or “play Rihanna’s latest hit”. You don’t have to know the name of the song since Amazon’s AI assistant there to help you. Of course, if you find that you don’t like Amazon Unlimited music, you can always cancel it at anytime and revert back to the ad-free two million song selection already offered for free with your Prime subscription.
I’ve been using Amazon’s Unlimited music ever since it debuted, mainly because I listen to music at home where all of my Dots, Echos and Taps live. I love making playlists using my voice, as well as controlling songs when I am on my exercise bike or am in the process of cleaning dishes. I’ve since cancelled my Google Play Music plan and now save a little money every month while getting all of the music my heart desires. When I am at the office or away from home, I simply listen to music through the Amazon Music app on my Android, iOS and Microsoft devices.
