Just after a month of the launch of its new Amazon Music Unlimited plan in the US last month, and then in the Europe earlier this week, the company has decided to announce the family plan options for the service.
The subscription for Amazon Music Unlimited Family plan gives access to six people at $14.99/month or $149 a year, which is similar as compared to other music streaming services on the market. Apple Music for example also offers a $15/month family plan with a user limit of six people.
The Prime membership can save the customers a couple of bucks, as they'll have to pay only $7.99 per month as compared to $9.99 per month for the non-Prime members, however, the family pricing remains the same for both. There are a total of four available options while signing up:
- $7.99/month, $79/year for Prime members
- $9.99/month for non-Prime members
- $3.99/month on a single Echo, Echo Dot or Amazon Tap
- The new $14.99/month for Prime and non-Prime members or $149 a year Family plan for Prime members
The service is live in some of the European countries and the United States for now. It started rolling out in the UK, Germany and Austria earlier this week. If you sign up as a new user, you can avail a 30-day free trial.
As for the streaming service, Amazon has an entire collection of over 10 million songs-on-demand, including through apps for iPad, iPads and Android devices, as well as the web and through the company's own Amazon Echo and Fire devices.
