Amazon comes with its own free music streaming service for Alexa
Amazon is working on its own free music streaming service. In this way, the company would like to compete better with Spotify, which can also be heard for free with advertisements embedded.
According to the report, the streaming service must offer free music for the smart speaker from Amazon. To do this, users must tell computer assistant Alexa: “Alexa play free music.”
Amazon already has a paid music service, Amazon Music Unlimited. The new service would be free and, just like Spotify, financed with advertisements. A playlist is then occasionally interrupted by a commercial message. In addition, the music library of the free music service would also be more limited than the library of Amazon Music Unlimited.
It is not known when the service will be available. Amazon did not want to respond to the rumors.
