Amazon Takes On Spotify & Apple Music w/Its Own 'Music Unlimited' Service

Amazon Takes On Spotify & Apple Music w/Its Own 'Music Unlimited' Service

The device currently links to Amazon Prime Music and Spotify – though it will be interesting to see how long the latter, now very much a direct rival, is permitted to continue as a partner.

Amazon has launched a new editorial music series on Echo called ‘Side-by-Sides’.

When customers ask, “Alexa, play Side-by-Side with One Republic”, Ryan Tedder will play and comment on songs from One Republic’s latest album Oh My My.

Other artists who have participated include The Chainsmokers, Jason Aldean, Lindsey Stirling, Sting, Norah Jones, One Republic and Kongos.
