Amazon is giving Prime members FREE access to more than 100 million songs!
Amazon has announced that it is expanding its music benefit for Prime members, giving them access to more than 100 million songs in shuffle mode, more ad-free podcasts, and additional features that will make it easier to discover new content in the Amazon Music app.
All of these new benefits come at NO additional cost to Amazon Prime members. So now that this Amazon music free option exists, why would anyone pay $8.99/month for Amazon Music Unlimited?
If you’re a serious music lover and you’re looking for a service that compares with a paid Spotify or Apple Music subscription, you’ll probably still want to keep your Amazon Music Unlimited membership.
But if you’re a Prime Member and looking for free music, then these updates could make Amazon Music one of the better free options currently available! Keep reading for the new FREE Amazon Music benefits available to Prime members.

1. Get access to Amazon’s full catalog of music in shuffle mode.
Prime members will now be able to stream more than 100 million songs entirely ad-free. Previously, Amazon Prime members had access to approximately 2 million songs, so this is a huge upgrade!
Now Prime members can shuffle-play any artist, album, or playlist, and stream a collection of playlists tailored to their listening preferences on demand.
The catch is that you’ll have to listen in shuffle mode, so that is one of the disadvantages of listening to free music on Amazon vs. having a paid Amazon Music Unlimited subscription.
2. Listen to more podcasts ad-free.
Prime members can now listen to the most ad-free podcasts available on-demand, including shows from CNN, NPR, ESPN, and The New York Times.
Prime Members will also get free access to the Wondery catalog of premium podcasts like Dr. Death, SmartLess, Even the Rich, and more.
3. Gain access to new Amazon exclusive shows and series.
Amazon is introducing new exclusive podcasts across all genres including Baby, this is Keke Palmer, MrBallen Podcast, Suspect: Vanished in the Snow, COLD Season Three, Killer Psyche Daily, and a weekly bonus episode of The Old Man and the Three, hosted by former NBA player JJ Redick.
4. Use new features that make it easier to discover your next favorite podcast.
In addition to the most ad-free podcasts available, listeners will now have access to a new Podcast Previews feature, which allows you to preview short soundbites from podcast episodes as you browse.
These curated clips are designed to introduce new listeners to podcasts and make it easier for existing podcast fans to find their next favorite show.
