Amazon’s music streaming service is now live in UK, bringing over 40 million songs and thousands of hand-curated playlists to both smartphones and the recently launched Amazon Echo Dot voice activated personal assistant and audio streamer.
A 30 day free trial is also available and Amazon is offering an exclusive subscription plan which provides access to the service on a single Amazon Echo or Echo Dot for only £3.99/month.
“We’ve been thrilled with customer reaction to the launch of Amazon Music Unlimited in the U.S. last month and we’re excited to quickly bring the service to customers in the UK,” said Steve Boom, Vice President Amazon Music.
“Starting today, Amazon Music Unlimited offers our UK customers playlists and stations curated by our music experts in the UK, featuring leading British and international artists – we think customers are going to love it.”
Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder and CEO, added: “If you want a sense of the future of voice-controlled music, go ahead and ask Alexa for a free Amazon Music Unlimited trial, and play around on your Echo.
“If you don’t know the name of a song but know a few lyrics, if you want to hear songs from a specific decade, or even if you’re looking for music to match your mood, just ask.
“Our U.S. customers love Amazon Music Unlimited on Echo, and we think our UK customers will too.”
