Amazon Launches Free Music Service for Members

iOS users with an Amazon Prime subscription now have another free music streaming option. Amazon rolled out its new music streaming service called "Prime Music" for Amazon Prime members. The service gives users access to over a million songs, hundreds of Amazon curated playlists and the ability to download tracks for offline listening.

Early reports suggest that Amazon's music library is not as deep as Pandora or Spotify, but the service is ad-free if you already have an Amazon Prime account. Not to mention, a $99 yearly subscription also nabs you free shipping from, access to Amazon's movie streaming service and deals on select products. A yearly subscription to Pandora may be cheaper, but it only offers ad-free music, not all the perks of an Amazon Prime subscription.

iOS users can utilize the revamped Amazon Music app with Amazon Cloud Player to access and download songs. The app requires iOS 6.0 or later and works with the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Amazon is also offering a free 30-day trial to Prime Music. If online shopping and music is your thing, this may be perfect service for you!
