Since the launch of Amazon Music, customers have been able to use the simplicity and magic of voice to request music in fun, innovative ways. Interacting with music through voice is transforming how people engage with music - searching for a favourite station, or music by era or genre, is easier and more popular than ever before.

And so, beginning today, customers in the UK who do not yet have a Prime membership or a subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited will now be able to listen to an ad-supported selection of top playlists and stations for free with Amazon Music on compatible Alexa-enabled devices.

Customers now have access to play a station based on a song, artist, era, and genre, and to hear some of Amazon Music's top global playlists including Rap Rotation, Pop Culture, and more. To listen, simply say:

  • "Alexa, play the playlist Pop Culture" to hear the ultimate global playlist for today's pop music.

  • "Alexa, play Ed Sheeran" to hear a station featuring his music.

  • "Alexa, play 80s music" to hear a station filled with music from the era.

  • "Alexa, play rap music” to hear music from the genre.

Prefer to listen to music on-demand, without ads? As part of a Prime membership, Prime members enjoy more than 2 million songs and thousands of stations and playlists across their devices including mobile, desktop, Alexa-enabled devices, and more, at no additional cost to their membership.

Listeners looking for even more music selection can try Amazon Music Unlimited, a premium subscription service that provides unlimited access to more than 50 million songs including the latest new releases.
