Amazon Music Unlimited also offers a Family Plan for $14.99 and a Single Device plan for $3.99 if you’re streaming on an Echo Dot or Fire TV. Students pay $4.99 a month.

But Amazon Music Unlimited isn’t the only music streaming service from Amazon. Amazon Music HD, which is $7.99 ($9.99 for non-Prime users), is the same price as Amazon Music Unlimited. Previously separate, Unlimited users can now upgrade to Amazon Music HD for free. You get everything Amazon Music Unlimited offers, but with playback in high definition lossless audio.

HD subscribers also have access to some tracks in 3D sound, with Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 Reality Audio from Amazon Echo Studio.


What is Amazon Music Prime?

Then there’s Amazon Music Prime. That’s the music service that comes bundled in with an Amazon Prime subscription ($119 a year), at no extra charge. It offers two million tracks, music stations and curated playlists. Like Amazon Music Unlimited, you get offline listening and unlimited skips – just less songs.
