Amazon has announced that Echo owners will be able to use part of Amazon Music for free. The new free service doesn’t require an Amazon Prime subscription and can be used to access playlists or start new stations by saying a genre or artist name.
The caveat here is that this new tier of Amazon Music is only available in the US at launch, and the service is fairly minimal – you don't get on-demand access to Amazon's entire library and you’re going to hear ads in between songs.
