Wish you could get some tunes playing with nothing more than your voice? As of today, you can now ask Alexa because a free Amazon streaming music platform just launched that will offer free to anyone using an Echo Device.
According to TechCrunch, the new service will give Spotify some stiff competition, offering the same two million song catalog as Prime Music. While it doesn’t come close to Amazon Music Unlimited which boasts has 50 million songs, the option now gives users the ability to stick with Amazon instead of using a third-party platform like Pandora.

In addition to seamless listening, Amazon’s new service provides a way for users to upgrade to the paid subscription services such as Amazon Music Unlimited and Amazon Prime.
Amazon currently offers its Prime Music service as a feature of its Prime subscription for $7.99 per month. Customers who do not have Prime can also pay $9.99 per month for an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription.
