Amazon introduces Prime Student Amazon Music Unlimited for just $0.99 a month

From the press release:

By adding Amazon Music Unlimited, Prime Student members can now get over 50 million songs, thousands of curated playlists and stations, and discover new music through voice with Alexa

  • Amazon Music: 50 million songs
  • Apple Music: 50 million songs
  • Spotify: 35 million songs

This is no small thing. Amazon is quickly gaining on both Apple Music and Spotify. In part, this is due to the wild success of Echo and Alexa. Imagine how this would be if Amazon had a successful phone and watch to add to the mix.
