Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan Launches In U.S.

launched its premium streaming service, , in October, and it’s already shaping up as more of an actual competitor to Spotify and Apple than its existing service for Prime members ever was. The only problem is that while both of those competitors offered family plans, didn’t — until now, that is.

On Wednesday, Amazon announced that a Family subscription plan was finally available for Music subscribers. Like both Apple Music and Spotify, the Family plan for Amazon’s Music allows up to six family members to share one subscription, complete with individual playlists and recommendations. Where Amazon’s offering differs is the pricing.

For both Prime members and nonmembers, the Family plan will cost $15 per month, which is the same as the competition. Prime members can also opt for a yearly subscription that costs $150 annually, which represents a $30 savings over the monthly plan. Of course, this means subscribers will also be paying $100 per year for their Prime subscription, but if you’re a heavy user of Amazon services, this is likely still a bargain.

The yearly plan shouldn’t come as a surprise, as Amazon Music Unlimited already offers such a deal for single subscriptions for Prime members: Subscriptions start at $8 per month or $80 per year, while nomembers are limited to a $10 per month option. The more surprising part is that Prime members get no discount at all on monthly pricing for the new Family plan.
