Streaming service Amazon Music is now available through Google’s smart TV interfaces Google TV and Android TV.
Amazon Music is available to download on the new Chromecast’s Google TV operating system or Android TV on other set-top boxes and smart TVs. The app functions exactly the same as on other devices, giving Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers unlimited access to 70 million ad-free songs and podcasts for $9.99 per month. Prime members get free access to Amazon Music Prime, with 2 million ad-free songs, thousands of stations and top playlists. None subscribers get free access to ad-supported Amazon Music.
Amazon Music joins other streaming services on Google TV and Android TV such as Google’s own YouTube Music, Spotify and TIDAL.
With many similar smart devices and product such as streaming services (Amazon Music and YouTube Music), TVs (Fire TV and Google TV), smart speakers/displays (Echo and Nest), the two companies have previously fought over content on each others devices. However, this latest move marks another step in the right direction to the two companies sorting out their differences, thus providing a better experience for all customers.
Amazon Music’s TV app is available today in the US, UK, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, India, Japan and Australia.
