Amazon Prime Music launched this week, offering a million songs or so to current Prime subscribers. The service is ad-free and launches with a bit a limited selection.
Because many of the details of Prime Music have been previously reported (BuzzFeed already noted that the service won’t have songs from major labels until they’ve been out for 6 months*; the New York Times and the New York Post have already noted that the service won’t include anything at all from Universal Music Group, the world’s biggest music label) there isn’t a lot more to say.
Despite the limited selection, Prime Music is really a value-added feature for subscribers. I’m not sure people will jump on board with $99 Prime to just stream music. This will be a nice bonus for those utilizing the shipping perks and/or streaming video options.
An iOS app is now available to stream on iPads or iPhones.
