Amazon is launching a music streaming service for Prime subscribers today. This service, simply called Prime Music, is trying to compete with the likes of Spotify. Current Prime subscribers get access to over a million songs for free, others can get access with a free 30-day trial. With so many streaming services available you may be wondering what Prime Music has to offer.
Amazon appears to be focused on playlists, like Beats Music is trying to do. There are already a number of curated playlists available to stream. Prime Music doesn’t have a lot of new releases available for free streaming, and songs from Universal Music are not included either. So while you do get access to over a million songs, they may not be the songs you want. Prime Music apps will be coming soon for Android, iOS, PC, and Mac, but for now you can explore the library with the link below.
EDIT: The Amazon MP3 app has been updated to “Amazon Music.” Download here.
