What you need to know

  • Customers in the U.S., UK, and Germany can now listen to Amazon Music on Android, Fire TV, iOS, and the web for free with ads.
  • Previously, the service was only available on Echo devices.
  • The service has access to a selection of top playlists and thousands of stations, but you cannot request specific songs unless you become a subscriber.

Just in time for the holidays, Amazon has some news that will be music to your ears. Starting on November 18, Amazon Music's free ad-supported plan is now available across Android, Fire TV, iOS, and even on the web. With this announcement, Amazon now joins a host of other music streaming services that offer a free ad-supported tier across multiple platforms (such as Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube Music).

Previously, the service was only available on Echo devices, but after yesterday's announcement customers in the U.S., UK, and Germany can now enjoy access to Amazon Music on their favorite devices without a subscription to Prime or Amazon Music Unlimited.

Similar to most other ad-supported music services, you won't be able to request specific songs or albums. Instead, you'll have access to a selection of top playlists and thousands of stations. Some of the playlists and stations available are as follows.

  • "All Hits," a playlist featuring the biggest songs in the world.
  • "Fuego Latino," a collection of the week's hottest Latin tracks.
  • "Country Heat," the ultimate playlist for today's country music fan.
  • The "Holiday Favorites" station, for the iconic songs that define the yuletide season.
  • "Rap Rotation," the new home for rap in heavy rotation.

If you do attempt to play a specific song, the app will instead start a station based on the song with a prompt that on-demand listening is only available for Unlimited subscribers. If you choose to become an unlimited subscriber, it will set you back $7.99/month for Prime members or $9.99/month for users without Prime.

Besides requesting specific songs, an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription also gives you access to over 50 million songs, thousands of playlists and stations, and offline downloads.

Amazon Music Unlimited is a streaming service that's accessible on tons of devices and features millions of songs that you can play on-demand or download to your device. It's entirely ad-free, too. The deal is for new users of the service only. (opens in new tab)

  • When will we learn there is no such thing as a free service or app.
  • Hey!
    I use Pure VPN for accessing Bt sports and other related channels, So are it gonna work if I choose IP of other countries and access the Amazon Music?
