Amazon Releases Prime Music Streaming Service Free For Prime Customers – Available Now On The Web
More and more music listeners have turned to streaming services like Pandora Internet Radio, Spotify, iTunes Radio and more. Music stores, even online, have been suffering from this and have since started their own streaming services. Google was the first to do this releasing Google Play Music All Access. Apple followed by releasing iTunes Radio. A third music provider was Amazon, and now they’ve joined into the party too.
Amazon Prime Music, as the company calls it, provides access to over a million songs with unlimited ad-free streaming. The service does require a $99-per year Amazon Prime membership which also gives users access to services like Amazon’s Instant Video library, free 2-day shipping, and even free Kindle e-books. This make Amazon Prime even better of a deal.
Amazon has said that the service will have iOS, Android, and Kindle apps as well as a desktop client which is live now. The mobile apps will be able to download songs for offline playback.
The service is rolling out to iOS and Android through an update to the Amazon MP3 app.
