After months of vigorous negotiation between record labels, Amazon has finally launched their online music streaming service. Called 'Amazon Prime Music', it grants Prime members access to "over a million songs and hundreds of playlists" with a Prime subscription; Amazon Prime cost $99 a year.
Amazon Prime Music can be accessed by all major platforms, which should attract a wider audience; this includes iOS and Android. To gain access to the service, users must download or update the 'Amazon Music' app. If you're not already a Prime member, you can try out the service at no cost with a 30 day trial.
Although the initial 'one million songs' claim seems impressive, hugely popular rival Spotify claims to have over 20 million tracks available. However, the Amazon package may become more attractive as it includes music streaming, a video streaming and free two-day delivery.
