Do I need an Amazon Music account for Alexa?
Amazon Music Free on Alexa – Not particularly widely known, Amazon itself has an ad-supported free tier of its Music service. It gives you access to roughly the same 2 million songs that Amazon Prime subscribers get, but as with Spotify, you can’t request that Alexa plays specific songs.
Instead you can listen to playlists and stations. For example, you could say “Alexa, play the Michael Bublé station”, “Alexa, play the Top Pop station” or “Alexa, play the All 80s station”. There are loads, and you can see them if you head to music.amazon.com (or music.amazon.co.uk or whichever country website is appropriate) and sign in.
Other limitations include listening on only one Echo device at at time, no HD or Ultra HD quality, nor support for spatial audio. See the full comparison of Amazon Music tiers, If you pay for Amazon Music Unlimited, you get access to the 90-million-songs strong catalogue.
You can set different default services for Music, Artist and Genre Stations and Podcasts: they don’t all have to be the same.
