Amazon prime Memberships come with much more than free two-day shipping. The Prime Video streaming service is quite popular, but you may not know that Amazon has music streaming too. We will show you how to start listening.
What is Amazon Music?
Amazon Music is actually made up of four different subscriptions, each with various music libraries and features. Here are the basic differences (a full comparison chart can be found here):
- Free Amazon Music: It does not require a primary membership. Similar to Pandora, they are just playlists and stations with ads. Limited to one device at a time.
- Amazon Music Prime: Included with your Amazon Prime membership. Two million songs, playlists, stations, and no ads. Limited to one device at a time.
- With Amazon Music Unlimited: Requires a subscription outside of Prime. 60 million songs, playlists, stations and no ads.
- Amazon Music HD: Requires a subscription outside of Prime. Same library as Music Unlimited, but with songs in HD, Ultra HD, and some with 3D studio sound. No Ads.
Amazon Music Prime is a good music streaming service in the middle of the road. It doesn’t have a huge music library like Spotify or Apple Music, but two million songs are decent. If you’re a casual music listener who doesn’t want to subscribe to an additional service, this is a great deal.
Where can I listen to Amazon Music?
Amazon Music is compatible with many of the popular platforms. That includes iPhones, iPads, Android devices, Kindle Fire tablets, Fire TVs, Echo devices, Windows PCs, Macs, and web browsers. You should be able to stream Amazon Music on almost any device you own.
How to get started with Amazon Music Prime
Using Amazon Music is really as simple as logging into your Amazon account. Of course, you will need to be a Prime member to use the Music Prime streaming package. The process will be the same for whatever platform you are using.
First, download the appropriate application for your platform. Here, we are using the Android application. You will be asked to log into your Amazon account.
Once you are logged in, you will see a few different sections to explore. Mobile apps have tabs at the bottom, while desktop apps have tabs at the top. Scroll and search for music or do a search.
You can save songs and albums to your music library or create playlists.
That’s the basics of Amazon Music Prime. It’s a great little streaming service that you might not even know was available. If you are a Prime member, this is another little benefit that you don’t want to miss out on.
