Amazon Music Unlimited and Amazon Echo hit 28 new markets

Amazon Music Unlimited music streaming service hits 28 new markets

The Amazon Music Unlimited streaming service and the Echo smart speaker can finally be acquired in many new markets across Europe and the Americas. All these areas receive three plan options: Echo, Individual, and Family.

Amazon has a lot of fans in many countries where at least some of its services are not available yet, but it is great to see the online retail giant is working hard on improving its coverage. Last Friday, the Amazon Music Unlimited streaming service and the Echo smart speaker became available in no less than 28 additional countries.

When checking out one of the many music streaming services available nowadays, you just cannot miss those mindless user comments saying that some popular hit is missing. Obviously, these comments show up for niche apps/services like SoundCloud or Jamendo. Fortunately, this should not happen with Amazon Music Unlimited, since it has a catalog of over 40 million tracks from artists like Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, J Balvin, Post Malone, and many others. Amazon Music Unlimited also features a rich collection of personalized stations and playlists, all of them being hand-curated by Amazon Music's experts.

The Amazon Music app is compatible with virtually all platforms in the wild: iOS, Android, Mac, PC, Fire TV, as well as any web browser. Next to it, the Amazon Echo smart speaker is also available for shipping in the same 28 new markets, including Belgium, Liechtenstein, Malta, Peru, Poland, Costa Rica, Columbia, Ecuador, Sweden, and more.

The plans available are known as Echo (cheapest, with access to the Amazon Music Unlimited catalog on a single Echo Dot, Echo Plus, or Echo), Individual (one of up to 10 devices at a time), and Family (up to six household members sharing a subscription). As it usually happens with the products and services available in multiple markets, the price of the Amazon Music Unlimited plans and the Echo smart speaker depend on the market.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
