Amazon Music Unlimited Gains Family Plan
Following its promise to do so earlier this year, Amazon today launched a family plan option for its Amazon Music Unlimited service. The family plan costs $15 per month (or $150 per year) and gives up to six family members all the benefits of the streaming music service. The family plan costs the same whether or not the subscriber also belongs to Amazon Prime. All users will be able to manage their own music, library, and playlists, and will receive personalized recommendations. The service includes ad-free listening, and will permit local downloads for offline playback. It differs from the Amazon Prime Music service in that it includes more songs and doesn't match or sync with user-owned libraries. Amazon Unlimited Music competes with Apple Music, Google Play Music, and Spotify.
