Doesn't Amazon already have a music streaming service? How is this different?

http://www.theverge.com/2016/10/12/1324 ... lity-price

Amazon’s long-rumored on-demand music streaming service is now available. The company is launching its new service as Amazon Music Unlimited, a on-demand competitor to the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music. Amazon has done a number of things to differentiate Music Unlimited from its competitors, but the most notable one is its price: the service will be available to Amazon Prime members for $7.99 per month or $79 per year, which is cheaper than the premium options from Spotify or Apple Music. In addition, owners of one of Amazon’s voice-controlled Echo devices will be able to get the service for just $3.99 per month.

It would take a huge increase in Apple Music prices to get me to switch. It's better than Spotify.

Wow, $4 if you have an echo.

Too bad no one owns one of them.

Corey does! And a bunch of us almost did until we cancelled and went with Google Home instead

Amazon Prime keeps looking more appealing! I started Spotify Premium when I began teaching yoga and barre for the variety of music available. One of my teacher friends used what Amazon had before sometimes to build her playlists. I know she said the selection was pretty limited though so still used iTunes. Maybe this new service is just about more options?

And it's only usable in the echo...and only on 1 echo. So a rip off.

Not true that this is only for Echo. The $4 price is only for Echo, not the service

Yeah...that's what I said. The $4 is only for the echo.
