Amazon free ad-supported music service may launch next week

Amazon free ad-supported music service may launch next week

According to new reports, Amazon is planning to launch a free alternative to its music streaming service in an attempt to steal some customers from Spotify.

Amazon is busy negotiating terms and conditions with several music labels to bring the ad-supported free service and expand its portfolio. Unlike paid offerings, these streaming tiers typically do not allow users to save music for offline access, limit the number of songs that can be skipped, and block the ability to find and stream specific songs, instead requiring the user to put a playlist on shuffle.

Amazon would market the free music service through its voice-activated Echo speakers, a Billboard report said on Friday, adding that it could become available as early as this week.

Amazon already offers Prime Music as part of its Amazon Prime subscription, as well as Amazon Music Unlimited, which costs $9.99 per month.

Sources say Amazon could unveil the free music streaming service before the end of April. The other big players, like Apple and Google, offer limited time free trials which then turn into full premium accounts at around £10 per month.

Unsurprisingly, Amazon is also expected to promote this free, ad-supported service tier in close relation with its Echo smart speakers, aiming to boost the popularity and value proposition of both products.

Does the world need yet another streaming music service?
