Amazon recently launched their own streaming music app, which is actually the old Amazon MP3 App on Android. It’s been renamed to Prime Music. So now if you subscribe to Amazon Prime, you can also get unlimited streaming music on your device or your laptop/desktop. It’s pretty cool, but the only thing is, there’s not much in terms of selection for music. However, it appears that Amazon is working to change that. Today, Amazon announced that they’ve added more music for artists already available on Amazon Prime Music as well as some new artists that have been added to the service. According to Amazon:
“Amazon today announced it has added hundreds of thousands of songs and hundreds of new, expert-programmed Prime Playlists to the Prime Music catalog. The newly-added selection includes songs from artists new to the Prime Music catalog, as well as additional tracks from artists already in the Prime Music catalog, such as David Guetta, Al Green, Miles Davis, Kendrick Lamar, Linkin Park, Shakira, Deadmau5, Ella Fitzgerald, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Neil Young, DJ Snake & Lil Jon, Young the Giant, A$AP Rocky, Elvis, Oasis, Kacey Musgraves, Ray Charles, Panic! at the Disco, Wyclef Jean, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Skrillex, John Coltrane and many more. Prime members can also enjoy hundreds of new Prime Playlists, such as “Upbeat Indie Vibes,” “Electronic Beats for Work,” “Rainy Day Jazz,” “Jack White and More,” “Bass Drops and Fist-Pumps,” and “Justin Timberlake’s Top Songs.”
So it does indeed look like Amazon has listened to our complaints about there not being enough music selection in Prime Music, and have added a ton more music to the service. We’ll likely see even more added soon as well. How many of you are using Amazon Prime Music? How are you liking the service so far? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
