Amazon may be taking aim at Spotify and Apple Music. A Reuters report that says the seller of almost all is getting ready to launch a full-on, stand-alone subscription music service.
Currently the company has a sort of second-tier service with a limited catalog of music that’s included with Amazon Prime. The service will reportedly cost $9.99 per month, thank Apple Music and Spotify for those pricing teirs.
The report says it’ll likely mirror the standalone prime video service Amazon launched earlier this year. That goes for $8.99 a month for non-Prime members.
“A music service will further increase the daily interactions between Amazon and its customer base,”
said former music executive Jay Samit when told about the company’s plan.
