For the last couple of years, Amazon has offered two different options for accessing their digital music library. The first was their paid music service that lets you purchase individual songs to download or stream from their cloud player. The second was Amazon Prime Music, which lets people who subscribe to their Prime service stream a subset of their music library for free.
Both of these options are still available, but in October 2016, the company launched a third service, Amazon Music Limited, which lets you stream their entire catalog for a monthly subscription fee. There are multiple pricing options for this new service:
- $7.99/month or $79/year for individual Prime members to play on all their devices ($9.99/month, no annual option for non-Prime members)
- Coming soon: $14.99/month or $149/year for up to six family members for the same benefits as the individual plan above
- $3.99/month for individuals to play on a single Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, or Amazon Tap device
Amazon Music Unlimited includes tens of millions of songs and lets you listen to them without ads. You can also skip songs as often as you’d like and download songs to listen to when you’re offline.
NOTE: If you want to sign up for the Echo plan, currently you can only do it through your Echo, Dot, or Tap by saying, “Alexa, start my free trial to Amazon Music Unlimited.
