February 16, 2022
If you love listening to music and are looking for a new streaming service, Amazon Music may be for you! With over 2 million songs, Amazon Music allows you to listen to all your favorite artists on your Fire Tablet, FireTV, or Amazon Echo devices. In addition, you can download the Amazon Music App to stream from your iOS or Android device. If Amazon Music seems like something you would be interested in, keep reading to learn more about the different tiers of subscription and how you can make the most out of your account.
Amazon Music offers three tiers of subscription-based accounts to its users:
- Amazon Music Free: This free subscription does not require you to purchase an Amazon Prime membership nor pay for a subscription. It allows you to play (SD only) music from any of the featured radio stations or playlists. Note that for this tier, there is no offline playback and you can only stream music on a single device at a time. It is also important to note that unlike the other two tiers, Amazon Music Free does include ads while listening.
- Amazon Music Prime: As the name implies, this tier is included with your Prime membership and gives you access to 2 million songs ad-free, as well as personalized playlists and stations. While users get unlimited plays, the music is only available to stream in SD and on one device at a time.
- Amazon Music Unlimited: With more than 75 million songs available to stream in SD, HD, Ultra HD, and Spatial Audio, the unlimited subscription allows you to listen ad-free with unlimited plays. Depending on what kind of unlimited subscription plan you get (Individual, Student, or Family), you can stream on up to one or six devices at a time. Costs vary between the plans, yet note that Amazon Prime members are eligible for a discount. If at any point and time you want to cancel your subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited, you can do so in the Amazon Music Settings page.
Similar to Amazon’s Prime 30 day trial, Amazon Music offers a 30 day trial for their first time Amazon Music Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers. Occasionally, Amazon will also have promotions for Amazon Music Unlimited users, offering 3 months free trial upon subscription rather than just 30 days.
