As expected, Amazon has released its own music streaming service called "Prime Music". The company joins the likes of Pandora, Spotify, Apple, Google and Beats Electronics in the now crowded market of subscription-based music. Taking a page from Beats Electronics LLC, Amazon is not offering a free ad-supported version of Prime Music, instead the service is free for paying subscribers of Amazon Prime.
Amazon Prime members will receive unlimited access to over a million songs and hundreds of pre-made Amazon playlists. Users will also be able to download any track to listen on their Kindle Fire, iOS, Android and Mac/PC devices using the Amazon Music cloud player app.
