Amazon Prime Music Gets Ad-Free Prime Stations with Unlimited Skips

Over the last couple of weeks my wife has been saying “I am really liking this Amazon Prime Music“, because of added content and features that work with our Echo ‘smart speaker’. Today Amazon unveiled an updated iOS app that opens up streaming of Prime music with unlimited skips to Prime members, making the experience more ‘Pandora like’.

The change isn’t a huge shift, but rather a continued evolution for the service as it continues adding to the catalog and making more features available to get more users hooked into the service. And based on the experience in our house – it is working.

Amazon Music already allows you to upload your own music, with a certain amount free and nearly unlimited storage for an annual fee. This music integrates with all Amazon music apps and services to allow you to listen anytime.

What Prime Music adds is a catalog that you can search and play and add by song or album to your own library and play it all ‘on demand’. So if I go to the music library and seek out ‘George Benson’ I will be able to add his classic ‘Breezing’ album and play songs – or make my own playlist including some songs from various artists across my own uploaded content, stuff I bought from Amazon MP3 store, and Prime Music.
