You have plenty of options to choose from—Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, to name a few—and they all offer a robust music library for roughly the same monthly fee. But if you're an Amazon Prime member, you get the most bang for your buck right now with Amazon Music Unlimited. As part of Amazon's Prime Day lead-up, the retailer is offering Prime members 4 months of the streaming service for 99 cents (after that, the price goes up to $7.99 a month—which is actually $2 less than most other services). That nets out to 25 cents a month for unlimited access to a library of a reported 40 million songs.
Like its competitors, Amazon Music Unlimited offers ad-free, on-demand playback, curated playlists based on your listening habits, offline playback on up to 10 devices, and crisp, high-quality audio. What sets Amazon apart, though, is its integration with the Echo. While you can control Spotify and other music services through the Echo, Amazon Unlimited goes beyond the basics by letting you search more granularly—an artist's most popular songs, the most popular songs from a certain genre in a particular year ("Alexa, play the top rock songs from 1992") and even by lyric ("Alexa, play the song with the lyrics [insert lyrics here]").
