Today the company led by Jeff Bezos has announced that its music streaming service known as Amazon Music Unlimited can now be enjoyed in 28 other countries, including some in Latin America, where until now it could only be used in the United States, Japan, Germany, United Kingdom, Australia and Spain.
Amazon Music Unlimited was born about a year ago, and is a very complete alternative to Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play Music. has a catalog of more than 40 million songs and like its competitors offers playlists based on musical tastes or moods.
The complete list of countries where Amazon Music Unlimited opens are the following:
- Costa Rica
- Czech Republic
- The Savior
In total, 9 Latin American countries will be able to use the service today, and together with it they will also be able to request from the Amazon store the smart speaker known as Amazon Echo, which until yesterday was available in a limited number of countries around the world.
It’s a surprise that Mexico is not included in the list of countries that can already use this service, because it is one of the strongest markets for Amazon, plus you can enjoy the “prime” membership.
Regarding costs, Amazon Prime Music Unlimited has a discount for prime members, and can be purchased by paying a monthly plan as in Spotify, Apple Music, or Google Play Music.
The costs per country have not been specified, but in the United States the plans are as follows:
- Echo Plan: $ 3.99 USD / $ 76 MXN (can only be used on Amazon Echo)
- Individual plan: $ 9.99 USD / $ 188 MXN
- Family plan (up to 6 accounts): $ 14.99 USD / $ 282 MXN
The prices seem exorbitant compared to the competition, but they are likely to end up being very similar costs to other companies, for example when you arrive in Mexico the plans could have an approximate price of: $ 50 MXN, $ 99 MXN and $ 149 MXN respectively.
We have contacted Amazon Mexico to know more details about the arrival of Amazon Music Unlimited to Mexico but so far we have not had an answer.
