Kate and I both get our music through Amazon and have been paying the full monthly unlimited price for years now. Before this my entire library was pirated and its now dropped to maybe 10% of my music is still moody, most probably less. And you know what I’m like - Mr Entitled - I really feel I get value from it, opposite to how I feel about most of these kinds of services.
The app was designed by one of my Year 9s, the quality can be a bit dodgey sometimes (not Amazon’s fault, its down to the publisher/artist themselves apparently) and the streaming can be wonky sometimes - but - I have found maybe 3 artists who aren’t available through it, you can download the tracks and listen to them offline or transfer them to other devices (no DRM) and their recommendation features work really well.
This week I’ve added at least 10 albums to my library from the three or four recommendation features on the apps home page.
I despise Alexa, so I don’t use ANY of the cross-over features apart from just playing music, even then that only happens when the silly bastard can understand what I’m saying.
