Amazon Launches New Ad-Free Music Streaming Service, Prime Music(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Amazon has revealed its newest service for its Prime members today, Prime Music.

Amazon’s ad-free music service offers customers access to over a million songs from thousands of artists and hundreds of pre-existing playlists, says the online retailer.

Additionally, users can download songs to their mobile devices from the Prime Music catalogue to listen when they are offline for no additional cost to their membership.

“Prime members can choose exactly which songs and albums to listen to, or they can sit back and listen to hundreds of expert-programmed Prime Playlists,” says a press release from the company. “Discovering music is easy thanks to Amazon’s personalized recommendations. Music fans will find tons of music they’ll love, from Grammy winners to indie breakout singers, along with a huge music catalog that can easily be combined with their own collection.”

The $99 a year membership fee includes unlimited streaming for movies and TV shows, a e-book borrowing service from the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library, and free-two day shipping on Amazon purchases.

Amazon Prime members can now listen to Prime Music starting today, and for those non-Prime members, a free 30-day trial is available from Amazon.
