Amazon Music Unlimited arrives in Spain, this is how it compares with Spotify, Apple Music and other services

27 mayo, 2021

Amazon’s streaming music service that landed in the United States in October 2016 has finally arrived in Spain. Amazon Music Unlimited brings us a competitive catalog of more than 50 million songs for a price of 9.99 euros per month.

This opens a place in the competition of premium online music services such as Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play Music, Deezer, Tidal and others available in Spain. We take advantage of the announcement to tell you the details of the offer and compare it with its rivals.

How it compares to the competition

Amazon Music Unlimited App

Amazon Music Unlimited comes with a catalog apparently superior to that of the rest of current music streaming services, at least in quantity. With its 50 million songs, it surpasses the more than 30 million of Spotify, the undisputed market leader with its more than 50 million premium users and 140 million active users.

Apple Music, which has a catalog higher than Spotify, reaches only 40 million songs, and not even Tidal with its exclusivities reaches the 50 million that Amazon offers.

The biggest incentive will come from Amazon Prime customers who are willing to subscribe for one year.

The Amazon service also comes with prices and plans practically traced to those of the competition, both the individual and family plans offer the same as Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, and Google Play Music, but here those who are Amazon Prime users have an additional incentive, as they will receive a discount of a couple of months if they decide to pay the annual subscription.

You can start your one-month free trial today and pay later. For this you will need an Amazon account and a payment method whose country matches the associated subscription country.

Unlike services like Spotify and Deezer, Amazon Music Unlimited does not have free listening options in exchange for the user seeing and listening to a few advertisements. They have decided to go for a uniquely premium model like Apple Music and Tidal.

At the moment If you are looking for a musical alternative and you are a Prime customer, Amazon Music Unlimited looks good in theory, especially for the discounts, but being a newcomer, we can say little more about him for now.

We would do well to start the trial period to decide how smart is the music recommendation algorithm, the level of playlists curated by Amazon professionals, how the applications behave, how well their catalog adjusts to our tastes, and if we prefer it over other options.
