Because Prime is many memberships rolled into one and helps members get the most out of Amazon, Prime members have access to 100 million tracks and the most top podcasts available ad-free at no additional cost. Amazon Music brings fans closer to what they love, with curated and personalized playlists, artist livestreams, in-app artist merch, and Amazon Exclusive podcasts.
But even if you’re not yet a Prime member, don’t fret. Amazon Music Unlimited gives you access to the complete catalog of about 100 million songs and podcasts, all ad-free. There’s also a free version of Amazon Music for everyone else, too.
