The recently launched Amazon Music Unlimited streaming service now has a new option for people who want to share their account with more people. Amazon’s new family plan for Music Unlimited allows up to six users to access the service for $14.99 a month. The older individual plan costs $7.99 a month, so this is a huge value for the money.
Each family member will get his or her own personal recommended list of songs under this new plan while still offering access to tens of millions of tunes. It still offers features such as offline and ad-free listening, access to thousands of playlists, and more. Amazon Music Unlimited is available for Mac, Windows, Android, iOS and of course Amazon’s own hardware products like its Fire tablets and its Echo connected speakers.
The $14.99 a month fee is the same for both Amazon Prime and non-Prime subscribers, and compares well to similar plans from Spotify and Apple Music, both of which offer the same price for up to six people. However, if you are signed up to Prime, there’s the option to get the family Amazon Music Unlimited plan for $149 a year. That’s a savings of nearly $30 a year compared to paying with the monthly plan. If you haven’t signed up for Amazon Prime, you are in luck as you can get it for just $79 a year for today only.
Earlier this week, Amazon Music Unlimited launched in the UK, Germany and Austria, but so far the company has not revealed just how many people have signed up to use it.
