Amazon Canada today announces the launch of Prime Music, making it possible for all Amazon Prime members in Canada to listen to more than one million songs, on-demand by chart-topping artists, along with hundreds of hand-curated playlists and personalized stations.
Now included with every new and existing Prime membership, customers in Canada can begin streaming Prime Music today within the Amazon Music app for iOS, Android, Mac, PC, Fire TV Stick Basic Edition and on any Web browser. In addition, customers who pre-order the recently-announced Echo devices at http://www.amazon.ca/echo will be able to start streaming Prime Music when Echo begins shipping in Canada on December 5 and conduct their listening experiences through natural voice controls powered by Alexa, Amazon’s cloud-based voice service, for the first time ever.
Prime Music reimagines music listening with innovative voice controls powered by Alexa. New Echo owners in Canada will soon be able to experience the simplicity of using their voice to ask Alexa for music, which makes listening to favourites and discovering new music easier and more fun than ever before.
“Music plays such an important role in our customers’ lives, and we’re excited to provide an even better Prime experience for Canada with the launch of Prime Music,” stated Mike Strauch, Country Manager for Amazon Canada. “The combination of music and natural language voice controls with Alexa, paired with playlists and stations developed uniquely for our customers, further highlights the value of Amazon Prime membership.”
Prime Music includes ad-free listening with unlimited skips and repeat plays, and compatibility with devices to listen anywhere on iOS, Android, Mac, PC, Fire TV Stick Basic Edition and any Web browser at no additional cost to Prime members in Canada. Mobile listeners can also save music for offline playback on their mobile device when they don’t have an internet connection.
