Amazon Music Unlimited also gets a price hike
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – Following price increases for Amazon Prime membership in the US, the cost of Amazon Music Unlimited is also rising.
Amazon has confirmed that the cost for Prime members will drop from $8 per month to $9.
A single-device subscription, available to Echo speaker and Fire TV users, will increase from $4 to $5 per month.
The cost for non-Prime members will remain the same at $10 per month, as will the family plan at $15 per month.
The price increase means Prime subscribers no longer get a deep discount, and that may make switching to another streaming service more attractive.
Of course, there are many advantages to using Music Unlimited, it is one of the few services that offers lossless HD and spatial audio formats. It also integrates well with the Echo line of speakers.
But with services like Tidal and Spotify now only costing a dollar more per month, both of which offer a bigger library and arguably better user interfaces. It’s easy to see users being tempted.

For those who listen to less music, Amazon offers Prime Music as a free service to Prime members. However, it’s much more limited, with only 2 million songs available and can only be streamed to one device at a time.
It’s not yet clear if other regions should expect price changes, but we’ll stay tuned.
