If you’re anything like us, you’ll have different playlists for different moods. We like to blast house and hip-hop fast beat tracks when we’re working out, listen to jazz and blues on melancholic walks, and enjoy classical, chilled out music when we’re working from home.


No matter where you are or what you’re listening to, you want the audio quality to be great, the tracks to transition seamlessly, and your favourite artists readily available to listen to. Other bonuses, which we now don’t think we could live without, include ad-free listening. Imagine being the DJ at a friend's house party and suddenly a voice advertising university clearing positions or cleaning services blares out on the speakers. Mood kill to say the very least.

An on-demand music service which has all of the above is Amazon Music Unlimited, and with its latest deal offering three months of the service for free (yes, you read that right), there's no better time to try it. Let’s find out more about it.

What is Amazon Music Unlimited?

From Amazon comes Amazon Music Unlimited: an on-demand music service which promises absolutely no adverts.

You have unlimited access to any song from the 90 million track strong library, so if you want to play Taylor Swift (albums) on repeat, you can. Amazon Music Unlimited also has unlimited skips and hands-free listening with Alexa, too.

And it’s not just music that Amazon Music Unlimited delivers on – it’s podcasts, too. The service has over 70,000 shows, with titles including Serial, Pod Save America, and That Peter Crouch Podcast.

Amazon Music Unlimited also offers lossless audio streaming across a lot of its content. This is partly because Amazon Music HD — which used to be a separate, more expensive tier of Amazon Music — is now included with Amazon Music Unlimited.

The one possible downside? Amazon Music Unlimited doesn’t include audiobooks. However, Amazon does have another service for that called Audible, offering hundreds of audiobooks, podcasts and more. Check out our guide for the full low-down on how Audible works.

Amazon Music UK price: How much is Amazon Music Unlimited?

Before we get onto the price, let’s firstly distinguish between Amazon Music and Amazon Music Unlimited.

Amazon Music is included in your Amazon Prime membership (which costs £8.99 per month after the free 30-day free trial), and this will get you the base version of the music library.

Amazon Music Unlimited is the extended library, and will set you back £10.99 per month, or £9.99 a month if you’re already an Amazon Prime member.

This will give you access to on-demand and ad-free music and podcasts, HD and Spatial Audio, with unlimited skips and the option to listen offline.

However, Amazon Music Unlimited is currently offering a deal that's sure to make any music lover's day: you can now snag three months of Amazon Music Unlimited for absolutely free.

Does Amazon Music Unlimited have a family plan in the UK?

Lucky for you – yes, there is an Amazon Music Unlimited family plan, and you can try it for free! It then costs £17.99 per month.

Up to six people can listen to music at any one time, so it’s perfect for a big family or a group of friends. Plus, with more people listening to the music platform, the more likely you are to split the bill.

However, unlike the individual plan's three month free trial, the family plan has a shorter 30-day free trial.

Amazon Music vs Unlimited: Which Amazon music service is better for you?

If you're looking to save your pennies, Amazon Music is 100 per cent free. Remember it is the most basic music subscription service from Amazon though, so it does have its drawbacks. There's no skipping to your favourite tune as music plays in shuffle mode.

For a more premium service, Amazon Music Unlimited is the one for you. It allows users, Prime or non-Prime members, to listen to music with unlimited skips and in offline mode if needed. It may seem a little pricey, but we think the perks are worth it, from tracks in HD and Ultra HD, to a useful family plan option.
