As part of a perk update announced on Tuesday, Amazon Prime members may now listen to 100 million songs and a variety of podcasts without paying additional fees.

Why it's important The additional Amazon Music perk was introduced after Walmart added Paramount+ and Spotify Premium to its Walmart+ membership, a significant boost from the previous 2 million shuffle-free tracks.

The company responsible for the news, Amazon, said last week that its sales growth slowed to 27% in the third quarter from 33% in the second.

In the meanwhile, according to Amazon's CFO Brian Olsavsky, the company's foray into sports streaming with NFL Thursday Night Football and original content with "Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" prompted record numbers of people to sign up for Prime memberships.

Changes to Amazon Music for Prime subscribers

According to Amazon, the new adjustment allows Prime members to "shuffle play any artist, album, or playlist" and to access popular podcasts without interruption.

  • Additionally, Prime subscribers receive ad-free access to the whole Wondery podcast network's collection as well as Amazon Exclusive podcasts.

Cost of Amazon Music Unlimited

However, Amazon Music Unlimited, a subscription tier of the service, is still available for $8.99 per month for Prime users and $9.99 for non-Prime members.

  • This package is available for offline listening and on-demand listening in HD and Ultra HD.
  • Non-Prime subscribers may access Amazon Music for free, which is ad-supported and offers millions of podcast episodes in addition to thousands of stations and playlists.
