Want some free music? Own an Alexa? Right now you can get free ad-supported music through Amazon’s Alexa smart speakers even if you do not have a Prime Membership.
In a statement on Amazon’s website they said: “Since the launch of Amazon Music, customers have been able to use the simplicity and magic of voice to request music in fun, innovative ways. Interacting with music through voice is transforming how people engage with music—searching for a favorite station, or music by era or genre, is easier and more popular than ever before. And so, beginning today, customers in the U.S. who do not yet have a Prime membership or a subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited will now be able to listen to an ad-supported selection of top playlists and stations for free with Amazon Music on compatible Alexa-enabled devices.”
Amazon Alexa owners now have access to play a station based on a song, artist, era, and genre, and to hear some of Amazon Music’s top global playlists including Country Heat, Fuego Latino, and more. To listen, simply say:
- “Alexa, play the playlist Pop Culture” to hear the ultimate global playlist for today’s pop music.
- “Alexa, play the Imagine Dragons station” to hear a station inspired by the popular rock band.
- “Alexa, play 80s music” to hear a station filled with music from the era.
- “Alexa, play country music” to hear a station with some of the best in the genre.
If you are a Prime Member you can enjoy 2 million songs and thousands of stations ad-free for no additional cost. If you want access to 50 million songs you can subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited.
