Free Amazon Music Streaming Service Expands to Android, iOS, and Fire TV
Previously, Amazon required people to buy an Alexa device and a paid subscription in order to listen to the ad-free version. But now, the company has expanded its presence, probably as part of a strategy to gain more customers who will gladly pay in order to avoid the ad interruptions.
People can now enjoy several playlists and stations, which stream a wide variety of genres. Amazon writes on its blog:
“…Amazon Music customers who do not yet have a Prime membership, or a subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited, can now listen to an ad-supported selection of top playlists and thousands of stations for free on their favorite devices. Previously only available to customers on Echo devices, today’s news expands access to customers using the Amazon Music app on iOS, Android, and FireTV.”
