Amazon is adding a new sector to their latest list of offerings. Amazon is offering a music service that will compete with the likes of Spotify and Pandora and will expand over the course of the next few months.
Amazon recently unveiled its latest venture, Prime Music, as a competitor to other streaming music services like Pandora and Spotify, Business Insider reported.
While the service adds a layer to Amazon’s already massive list of offerings, it comes with a few downsides to it. New music from major record labels won’t show up on the service until about six months after it’s already been released. And if that song happens to be from Universal Music Group, you won’t be getting it on the service at all.
However, officials say the service currently has 1 million songs already. Consumers won’t have to worry about their music being interrupted by ads either. The service also features a number of playlists, including those focused on genres, moods, and compilations of certain artists. It is primarily available to Prime members, but consumers without a Prime membership can test the new service through a 30-day trial.
