Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan: Everything you need to know
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – Amazon Music Unlimited, which aims to take on Spotify, Apple Music and other similar services, is offering a family plan to users.
Not to be confused with Amazon Prime Music, which is part of the Amazon Prime subscription, Amazon Music Unlimited is an ad-free premium service. With its Family Plan, up to six people can listen for £14.99/$14.99 a month with individual accounts. That’s about the same price as Apple Music’s family plan option, as well as the Spotify Premium equivalent.
Here’s what you need to know about the family plan.
Amazon Music Unlimited: What is the Family Plan?
The Family Plan allows each member of your family (up to six members ages 13 and older) to use Amazon Music Unlimited and all of its features.
Accounts are not shared, and each family member will have an Amazon account with their own recommendations. The only thing that is shared is the payment, and one family member is responsible for the monthly charge.
Amazon Music Unlimited: What can you do with the family plan?
Amazon said each family member in the Family Plan subscription will have access to the same features as an Individual Plan subscription. You’ll still see all your music, library, playlists, and personalized recommendations.
Amazon Music Unlimited is similar to Apple Music and Spotify in that it offers “tens of millions” of songs you can listen to on demand, and ad-free. It also offers recommendations through algorithms and hand-picked playlists, and you can access it through the Android or iOS app and on the web.
Also, you can have Amazon Music stream different music to different Echo devices in your household if you have a family plan. If you don’t have it, the music will switch between devices when you ask it to play something.
How much does the family subscription cost?
- Prime and non-Prime members: One family member pays £14.99/$14.99 per month for all family members in the subscription.
- Prime members only: One family member pays £149/$149 per year for all family members (a two month reduction).
Echo users get access to a special subscription plan for £3.99/$3.99 per month. If you’re part of an Amazon Music family plan, you can still access the service on your Echo without having to purchase a separate Echo plan. As an Echo user, you can also upgrade to an Individual Plan or Family Plan subscription at any time.
