If you still haven’t signed up for 4 months of Amazon Music Unlimited for just $0.99, today is the last day. This offer ends tonight at midnight, along with all of the other Prime Day Deals. The beauty of this offer is that there is absolutely no commitment necessary. You can literally cancel the subscription immediately after signing up, and continue to enjoy access to over 30 million songs for 4 months without worrying about remembering to cancel later. If you decide you like the service, you can decide to re-sign up once the 4 months are over. This is by far the best music subscription deal around. Check out the other Prime Day deals that are now live and check back here often because I’ll be posting the best deals all day as they go live.
For those of you who might have missed the post from last week, you can still get a 4 month Music Unlimited subscription for $0.99. That’s easily the best deal for a music subscription anywhere, which is why I’m posting about it again.

This great deal is unfortunately for new subscribers only, so if you’ve already tried Amazon Music Unlimited, you won’t be able to take advantage of this deal. Amazon Music Unlimited offers access to nearly 30 million songs from all of your devices, including the Echo and Fire TV line. For comparison, Prime Music grants access to around 2 million songs. This offer is for Prime members only and will end July 11.

Amazon is running a promotion for Music Unlimited where you’ll get 30 days for free, plus a $10 credit applied to your account after the free trial. The promotion is targeted, but thankfully it’s easy to know if your account qualifies. Those who qualify will see the text “$0.00 per month – The following promotion applies after your free trial: $10 promo credit” displayed on the page. If you don’t qualify, it’ll simply say “The promotion is not valid” in red near the top of the page.
Amazon has just updated their Amazon Music app for iOS for the iPhone and iPad with support for Apple Carplay. If you have a vehicle equipped with Carplay, you can now easily access your Amazon Music library right from your dash through a native interface. This works with both
Prime Music and Music Unlimited subscriptions, as well content you’ve individualy purchased or uploaded yourself. Support for Android Auto has been available for some time, so it’s nice to see Amazon now including support for the other popular car dash operating system.
Amazon just started a new promotion that gives new subscribers to Amazon Music Unlimited a free $10 credit to use towards the subscription cost. To receive the credit, click the “Add gift card or promotion code” button on the promotion’s page and enter the promo code AMAZONMUSIC. Then sign up for any of the Amazon Music Unlimited subscription options. After your 30-day free trial ends, you’ll have $10 worth of credit in your account that will be automatically applied to your subscription dues. If you’re a Prime member, the best bang for your buck option is the $79/yr plan. With the free $10 credit, that comes to just $5.75 per month, which is almost half what most other streaming music subscriptions cost.
When Amazon Music Unlimited launched last month, it was missing the option to share a single subscription among several family members. That option is now available with the arrival of family plans for Amazon Music Unlimited. For $14.99 per month, which is $5 more than the individual plan, you can share your music subscription with up to 6 family members. If you’re a Prime member, you also have the option to save $30 by paying $149 per year.
Amazon’s new premium music streaming service, called Music Unlimited, is now available in the UK, Germany, and Austria. The service launched a month ago in the US but is now available overseas. Pricing is identical to that in the US, but just in the respective country’s currency. Non-Prime members will pay £9.99/9,99€ per month. Prime members will pay £7.99/7,99€ per month but also have the option to pay £79/79€ annually. Amazon is also offering the Echo-only plan overseas for £3.99/3,99€ per month, but remember, that only allows access on a single device.
Along with the arrival of Amazon Music Unlimited, Alexa has gained a few new tricks to make finding the right music easier and more natural. For starters, asking to play music by an artist, without being too specific about which song or album you want, will automatically play the most popular tracks, instead of just shuffling an artist’s entire collection. Vague requests will now be tailored to your music tastes, based on your listening history, so saying “Alexa, play happy music” or “Alexa, play dinner party music” will play music that matches that description from a genre you tend to listen to, like “Pop To Make you Feel Better” or “Indie Dinner Party.”
If you can’t remember the title or even artist of a specific song, but can remember a lyric, you can now say “Alexa, play the song that goes…” or Alexa, play the song with the lyric…” and Alexa will try to find a song with the lyric that you say. You can also now ask for an artist’s “new song” if you know something just got released but don’t know the name of the song. Alexa can now also play songs by decade or year, so you can say “Alexa, play the most popular rock from 1996” or “Alexa, play Van Halen from the 70s” to narrow down what’s played. Lastly, you can now say “Alexa, play the Song of the Day” to hear a song picked daily by Amazon. The Song of the Day is introduced by a DJ that tells you a little about the song before it starts playing, and suggestions for further listening after the song ends.
Amazon Music Unlimited, the new stand-alone music streaming service from Amazon, launched this morning with an enticing $3.99 per month option for Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap owners. The catch though is that the $3.99 plan can only be used from a single device. That doesn’t mean a single device at a time, but rather, it literally means only a single Echo, Echo Dot, or Tap can access the Amazon Music Unlimited library. Read more ›
