It seems that any company can just up and start a streaming music service with a lot of deal-making and the right licenses. But turning all that around to consumers takes a little more trouble when your businesses are a little more diversified.
Amazon Music Unlimited has been around for a short while and it has been able to layer plan offerings down from the individual level (at $7.99 per month or $79 a year) to its own smart speaker devices such has the Echo, Echo Dot or Tap ($3.99 per month).
Of course, the gaping omission here is the family plan, something that Spotify and Apple Music have. And Amazon Music Unlimited now has it, at least in the US, for $14.99 per month for all or $149 per year (two months free) for Prime users. Up to six family members can be on a single account.
Amazon is introducing the plan with a 30-day free trial, accessible at the source link.
