Amazon Prime Music launches in India
Amazon.in today announced the launch of Amazon Prime Music, the ad-free music streaming service exclusively for Prime members, in India. The service offers unlimited offline downloads and is available at no additional cost to Amazon Prime members.
Amazon Prime Music comes with innovative voice control with Alexa. Using Alexa voice controls, Amazon Prime Music makes asking for your favorite music very simple and natural. All you need to do is to simply tap the Alexa icon in the app and ask for your favorite songs, albums, and artists with commands like “Play Ed Sheeran song”, “play latest Hindi songs”, or “play 60s Bollywood music.”
We believe music listeners are going to love Amazon Prime Music as we bring a global service that’s been truly localized in its selection and curation. With ad-free streaming at no additional cost to Prime members, Amazon Prime Music offers a welcome break from text and voice ads that come between you and your favourite music. Moreover, with voice controls the music listening experience cannot get any simpler, making music listening delightful, effortless and a natural experience for customers. Listening to your favourite music has never been more fun.
