Amazon Music Unlimited officially announced for $9.99/month

Amazon Music Unlimited

#Amazon has just unveiled its #Spotify killer, aptly named Music Unlimited with a monthly subscription cost of $9.99. The service is only $7.99 if you’re an existing owner of any of the #Echo devices or a Prime subscriber, which makes this a steal, really. The cost comes down to just $3.99 if you intend to play music content on just one Echo device.

Overall, Music Unlimited could be one of the biggest players in the music streaming business, taking on the likes of Spotify, Google Play Music and even Apple Music. So how is it different from Amazon’s Prime Music subscription? Well, with Music Unlimited users get to choose from a bigger library of content, including the added benefit of having curated playlists based on your music tastes.

If you own an Echo device, you can hum some lyrics in the form of voice commands to have that particular song playing for you. This is a useful feature if you know the lyrics of a particular song but not its name. Amazon has built in several other features underneath to make it appealing to a wide range of users.

The service will not be available globally owing to licensing issues, so you will be able to enjoy it only in the U.S. for now. Regions like Austria, Germany and UK will get Music Unlimited later this year.
