If you think of the benefits of a Prim membership, two things probably come to mind: free shipping and Prime video.
But now, Amazon Music has just taken a giant leap into the forefront of benefits to enjoy, expanding their music catalog from 2 million to 100 million songs.
This is the number of songs users can access through the paid Amazon Music Unlimited streaming service.
The expansion includes access to “the most top podcasts, which will be available ad-free and at no additional cost to a Prime membership” according to Amazon.
There are still some limitations; you can only shuffle play artists, albums or playlists.
Steve Boom, VP of Amazon Music said in a press release, “When Amazon Music first launched for Prime members, we offered an ad-free catalog of 2 million songs, which was completely unique for music streaming at the time. We continue to innovate on behalf of our customers, and to bring even more entertainment to Prime members, on top of the convenience and value they already enjoy. We can’t wait for members to experience not only a massively expanded catalog of songs, but also the largest selection of ad-free top podcasts anywhere, at no additional cost to their membership.”
Why are all these companies trying to copy each other? Stay in your lanes. People don’t want more monthly fees.
