"Alexa, play music"
Since the launch of Amazon Music, customers have been able to use the simplicity and magic of voice to request music in fun, innovative ways. Interacting with music through voice is transforming how people engage with music—searching for a favorite station, or music by era or genre, is easier and more popular than ever before.
And so, beginning today, customers in the U.S. who do not yet have a Prime membership or a subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited will now be able to listen to an ad-supported selection of top playlists and stations for free with Amazon Music on compatible Alexa-enabled devices.
Customers now have access to play a station based on a song, artist, era, and genre, and to hear some of Amazon Music's top global playlists including Country Heat, Fuego Latino, and more. To listen, simply say:
- "Alexa, play the playlist Pop Culture" to hear the ultimate global playlist for today's pop music.
- "Alexa, play the Imagine Dragons station" to hear a station inspired by the popular rock band.
- "Alexa, play 80s music" to hear a station filled with music from the era.
- "Alexa, play country music" to hear a station with some of the best in the genre.
Prefer to listen to music on-demand, without ads? As part of a Prime membership, Prime members enjoy more than 2 million songs and thousands of stations and playlists across their devices including mobile, desktop, Alexa-enabled devices, and more, at no additional cost to their membership.
Listeners looking for even more music selection can try Amazon Music Unlimited, a premium subscription service that provides unlimited access to more than 50 million songs including all the latest new releases.
