Amazon’s Music Unlimited music streaming service includes more than 40 million songs with a free 30-day trial on offer and at a rate of €7.99 per month for Prime members. And users who only use the service with Amazon’s Echo hands-free speaker system will pay €3.99 per month.

Non-Prime members would pay €9.99 per month, or the same price as Spotify’s subscription service, Premium.
“We think customers will love our new service,” said Amazon Music vice president Steve Boom.
Music Unlimited was already launched in the US last month and has now also expanded into Austria and the UK.
Amazon’s new offer includes playlists, radio stations, and starting in summer 2017, will livestream Bundesliga football matches.
Head of digital music in Germany, René Fasco, said Music Unlimited's target audience is a bit older than that of its Swedish competitor, Spotify.
