Amazon Adds New Feature In Hopes To Match One Of The Perks Of YouTube Music
Amazon is adding a large vault of music videos to its Amazon Music Unlimited service. However, the feature is reported to only be available to paying subscribers, according to Android Police. This doesn’t come as a surprise though and is on par with other music streaming services.
Music videos will show up as their own section in search results and on artist pages. In addition to this there will also be music video playlists. Like YouTube Music there will be the added option of either watching the video or just listening to the audio.
The news follows the introduction of Amazon’s X-Ray feature to the music streaming service, first debuted on their TV streaming service. Customers can now see behind the scenes trivia and “fun facts” about currently playing tracks.
Amazon Music Unlimited costs £7.99 monthly and currently they are offering 3 months totally free. Amazon Music Unlimited also offers a HD tier with lossless and hi-res streaming, a unique selling point that is not offered by larger competitors such as Spotify and Apple Music.
