Amazon Prime members have access to ad-free music and podcasts by expanding its library, the company’s latest effort to boost the value of its flagship subscription service.
Amazon Prime – Key Points
|– Amazon Prime subscribers will now have access to 100 million ad-free songs, the firm revealed on Tuesday.|
– It will also provide Prime subscribers with a library of ad-free podcasts.
– Amazon has attempted to improve the benefits provided by its Prime subscription program by upping the fee to $139 per year, up from $119.
Amazon announced Tuesday that Amazon Prime members have access to ad-free music and podcast by expanding the library to 100 million songs, up from 2 million. The music will be ad-free, but users will only be able to listen to shuffled artists, albums, or playlists, rather than picking songs on demand.
According to Amazon, separate “All-Access” playlists tailored to users’ preferences can be played on request and downloaded for offline listening.
The new Prime podcast and music features will almost probably enhance competition with Spotify and Apple Music. Apple raised the monthly price of Apple Music from $9.99 to $10.99 last month. Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said that the company is considering boosting subscription prices.
“When we first unveiled Amazon Music for Prime members, we gave an ad-free library of 2 million songs,” Steve Boom, VP of Amazon Music, explains. “We are constantly improving for our customers, bringing even more satisfaction in addition to the current benefit and utility.”
Amazon Prime members have access to ad-free music and podcasts from CNN, NPR, The New York Times, and ESPN, as well as content from Wondery, the podcasting start-up Amazon purchased in 2020.
Ad-free shows include the Wondery catalog of premium, binge-worthy podcasts such as Dr. Death, SmartLess, and Even the Rich, as well as new Amazon Exclusive, shows such as
- Mr. Ballen Podcast: Strange, Dark & Mysterious Stories
- Suspect: Vanished in the Snow
- COLD Season Three: The Search for Sheree, Killer Psyche Daily
I Hear Fear, narrated by Academy Award-nominated actress Carey Mulligan, and It’s also the worldwide premiere of the Amazon Exclusive podcast series Baby, this is Keke Palmer, hosted by actress and businesswoman Keke Palmer (NOPE). Each week, Prime members may join Keke as she geeks out with friends, family, famous guests, and some recognized specialists, and falls down the rabbit hole into her insatiable quest for answers, perspectives, and the truth about everything.
Along with new and exclusive ad-free podcasts, listeners will notice a new look for the Amazon Music app, including the new Podcast Previews feature, which allows customers to easily preview a brief, digestible soundbite from the podcast series, allowing them to discover and explore new podcasts with a few swipes. Podcast Previews provides handpicked clips aimed to introduce new listeners to podcasts and help existing podcast fans choose their next favorite episode.
Amazon Prime debuted in 2005, promising users free shipping, video streaming, and other benefits. The firm recently increased the price of Prime, which has over 200 million members worldwide, from $119 to $139 a year and added a Grubhub food delivery benefit.
