The news of Amazon.com, Inc.(NASDAQ:AMZN) Music Unlimited family plan launched is spreading like bushfire perhaps because of the recent launch of Amazon’s premium music streaming service, Music Unlimited. The streaming music world is increasingly becoming very competitive. However, the shopping Pioneer has chosen to join the bandwagon of the likes of Spotify and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Music who have been longer on the market. The family plan will suit both Prime members and nonmembers and at the cost of $15 per month.
The Family plan for Amazon’s Music Unlimited, which is now live in the U.S, will allow the sharing of one subscription to six family members. Each of them will have individual playlists and recommendations.
Amazon Music family plan launched: Will it match the Music Unlimited plan?
The music industry is receiving a boost in the wake of every sunrise given that old players and new entrants are putting up their acts together, thus growing the competition. It is for this reason that we ought to hear of Amazon Music family plan launched? But will it much its previously launched service, the Music Unlimited plan? Which one would be of preference to a majority?
To say the least, the Family Plan will eventually become more competitive than the Music Unlimited plan. Why? It is all a matter of cost. The Family Plan has a flat monthly pricing whether or not one has the Amazon Prime membership. The Amazon Music Unlimited’s plans for individuals costs $7.99 per month for Prime customers against $9.99 per month for non-Prime members. However, what seems like a cheap price for the Family Plan may not necessarily help Amazon in boosting its Prime subscriptions.
But there is something better to look out for from Amazon
While we may all want to focus on the pricing, it would be a worthy cause to look out for what else Amazon is likely to be offering. It has a voice assistant, Alexa, which performs common actions the likes of playing songs from a particular artist, thus, making music streaming a different encounter.
But on the other hand, Amazon Music Unlimited’s recommendations are not sp pleasing plus they are not as smart as those of Spotify. Its “Discover Weekly” playlist remains one of the service’s best selling points. So shall we still continue to be glued to Amazon Music family plan launched? Meanwhile, Amazon’s stock was trading at $746.49 witnessing an increase of $3.25 or 0.44%.
