Amazon Music is now available for any Canadian to stream, whether or not they have a Prime membership or subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited.
Canadians can access a selection of top playlists and thousands of stations for free, with the accompaniment of ads. Tunes can be accessed from Amazon Echo devices, the Amazon Music app on iOS, Android, and Fire TV, or online via music.amazon.ca.
There are thousands of songs from which to choose across various stations. Customers can search by song, artist, era, and genre, and hear top global playlists like Pop Culture, Country Heat, and Canada Now. No credit card or subscription is required.
Of course, songs can be queued up via voice commands. Listeners can say things like “Alexa, play Billie Eilish” or “Alexa, play ’80s music” to hear applicable tunes.
Subscribing to Amazon Prime or Music Unlimited removes the ads from the listening experience and provides unlimited access to millions of songs.
