Reports: Amazon’s new Free Music Streaming Services Might be Out Soon

Reports: Amazon’s new Free Music Streaming Services Might be Out Soon

Amazon might offer a free version of its music services soon, Billboard reports suggest. The reports state that the e-commerce giant is in talks with music labels to roll out an ad-supported the free version of Prime Music. The new music services will be available via Amazon’s echo range of smart speakers and will have a limited number of songs.

Users don’t have to sign up to use the new music services. In order to fulfil its plans, the company will invest money to obtain music label licenses for streaming music. If the plan is successful, the new music services will be released in the U.S. by next week itself. This move by Amazon will likely intensify the competition against other music streaming platform such as Spotify, Apple Music. Both Apple and Spotify has about 152 million paid users.

Amazon didn’t reveal anything on the matter yet. Therefore, users need to wait and see if the company introduces free music services in the U.S. and later on in other parts of the world including India.

Currently, In India, Amazon Prime services are available to the users at a cost of Rs 129 per month and Rs 999 per year. The Prime services also include Prime Video, shipping benefits, and more features.

Coming to the U.S., Amazon Prime services are available in various pricing tiers; $3.99 is the cheapest for users streaming music on their echo devices only.

Well, if the free music service is introduced, it will be a major boost for Amazon in the entertainment space.
