What is Amazon Music?
Amazon Music (formerly Amazon MP3) is an online music streaming platform operated by Amazon and a music store. Introduced public beta on 25 of September 2007, in January of 2008, it became the first music store to sell music not having the Digital Rights Management from the four parmount labels ( Warner, Sony BMG, EMI, and Universal).
All tracks were originally sold in MP3 format with 256 kilobits per second and variable bit rate without watermark or DRM per client. However, some tracks now have watermarks. License agreements with record companies restrict the countries where music can be sold.
Platforms compatible with Amazon Music
The Amazon Music Streaming Music Catalog can be accessed via the Amazon.com web player with HTML DRM extensions or via player apps for multiple platforms such as macOS, iOS, Windows and Android, FireOS, Alexa devices, and some smart cars and television.
Amazon’s music catalog is available for purchase on the Amazon.com website by searching for an artist name or title, or through a store that integrates with many, but not all, player apps. To download purchased music, Amazon offers the Amazon Music Player (under Windows 7 or higher and Mac OS X 10.9 and higher) or an MP3 zip file downloaded from the Amazon Web Player.

Amazon Music Unlimited vs. Prime Music: what’s the difference?
Amazon Music Unlimited includes side-by-sides, a “behind the scenes” feature where artists post comments on their songs and albums. It also offers additional echo commands so listeners can say things like “Alexa, play Bruno Mars” to make a playlist of popular songs by Bruno Mars, or ‘Alexa, play good music’ to make a list of inspiring songs based on your listening story. Prime Music does not offer these features, although Echo users can ask Alexa to play songs and various types of music more restrictively.
If a larger music library, behind-the-scenes commentary, and additional echo voice commands sound like what you want, Amazon Music Unlimited may be the one for you. This assumes that the monthly costs are worthwhile.
Prime Music is included in your Prime subscription of $ 99 per year. Amazon Music Unlimited costs an additional $ 7.99 a month for Prime members, or $ 3.99 a month if you have an Echo that Echoes Dot or Amazon Tap will be shipping soon. You can also subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited for $ 9.99 a month if you’re not a Prime subscriber.
If you’re still there, Amazon Music Unlimited offers a free 30-day trial that you can try before subscribing. If you don’t have an Apple Music or Spotify subscription yet, Amazon Music Unlimited may be worth it, especially if you already have an echo.
