Update: This early Black Friday deal expires tonight, Nov. 11, at midnight. Take advantage of it while you can.
If you're currently an Echo device owner not utilizing the Amazon Music Unlimited service, you're seriously missing out. With a membership, you'll have access to over 50 million songs, including the most beloved classics and current jams, that you can stream wirelessly to any Echo device by simply asking Alexa. The service is available at a more affordable monthly price than its competitors such as Spotify and Apple Music if you have an Amazon Prime membership, and if not, it's on par with what those others charge. This weekend however, Echo owners can start a four-month trial of the service absolutely free thanks to Amazon's early Black Friday offers. This offer is only valid for new users of the service.
Whether you have an Echo, the Echo Dot, the Echo Spot, or even one of the Echo Dot Kids Edition speakers, you'll be able to stream your favorite songs straight to it once your membership is activated. Then you'll be able to use voice commands like "Alexa, play the song that goes 'the years start coming and they don't stop coming" and have your speaker begin playing Smash Mouth's smash hit from 1999, All Star. You can also give Alexa free-reign to start playing music for you, set your favorite song or playlist to wake you up as an alarm in the morning, and more.
Amazon Music Unlimited can also be accessed using your computer, iOS and Android devices, Amazon Fire TV devices and the Fire TV Stick, and even Roku devices, which means you'll be able to rock out even when your Echo device isn't nearby. Other smart speakers can stream music from the service too.
After your free four months is up, your membership will continue unless you turn off auto-renew beforehand in your account settings. If you decide to keep listening, you'll be charged $7.99 per month, or $9.99 if you don't have a Prime membership. Amazon also has a Single Device plan which could open access to the service on a single Echo or Fire TV device for $3.99 monthly. This weekend's trial offer is for the Individual account, so you'd have to switch plans after it expires if you're interested in the Single Device option.
These days, there are so many good music streaming services, it can be tough to know which to pick. Maybe you want to know more about YouTube Music or wonder about Spotify's benefits in comparison to Amazon Music. Luckily, today's offer can give you a lot of insight into whether Amazon Music Unlimited is the right service for you or not. It expires on November 11, so be sure to start your trial before then.
