Amazon this week launched an ad-supported music service on compatible Alexa-enabled devices. Amazon users in the U.S. who do not have a Prime membership or a subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited will now be able to listen to an ad-supported selection of playlists and stations for free with Amazon Music on compatible Alexa-enabled devices.
To activate the music service, users have to say “Alexa, play music.” Amazon Music’s top global playlists include Country Heat, Fuego Latino, and more. Here some examples of how to listen to music for free:
- “Alexa, play the playlist Pop Culture” to hear the ultimate global playlist for today’s pop music.
- “Alexa, play the Imagine Dragons station” to hear a station inspired by the popular rock band.
- “Alexa, play 80s music” to hear a station filled with music from the era.
- “Alexa, play country music” to hear a station with some of the best in the genre.
