Amazon’s stable of content streaming services has expanded significantly in recent years with a focus on TV, movies, and of course, music. Its high-res HD platform was unveiled a few months back with a focus on upgraded bitrate audio for compatible devices. However, if you’re new to Amazon Music Unlimited, it may be daunting to know where to start.

Today, Amazon is rolling out a 30-day trial period to new subscribers as an opportunity to check out its catalog of music and more. Head below for a full primer and details on beginning your free trial.

What is Amazon Music Unlimited?

Amazon’s in-house music streaming service has an extensive catalog of over 50-million songs. It has a mix of the latest releases, alongside an ample amount of classic tracks as well.

Amazon Music Unlimited typically costs subscribers $9.99 per month or $7.99 with a Prime membership. Family plans are available for $14.99 per month or $149 annually (Prime only).

What devices can I use?

As you might guess, this service is available on a wide-range of devices, including but not limited to smartphones, tablets, PC/Mac, Fire TV, and Alexa-enabled devices like Amazon Echo. You can browse Amazon’s entire selection of Alexa-enabled devices on this page.

What’s the difference between Prime Music and Music Unlimited?

Amazon includes Prime Music with your Prime membership, however, it has a significantly smaller library of content at 2-million songs.

Music Unlimited expands with a significantly larger library, plus “thousands of expert-programmed playlists and stations, including the hottest new releases from today’s most popular artists.” Both plans allow for offline listening on various devices.
