Amazon Expands Free Music Service.

Music fans will be able to play thousands of stations based on any song, artist, era, and genre; hear top global playlists; and the best in holiday tunes.

The free streaming tier was previously only available to owners of Echo speakers and other Alexa devices.
A Prime subscription is not required, but an Amazon account is needed to access the playlists.
Amazon’s other streaming tiers, such as Amazon Music Unlimited, offer ad-free streaming for a monthly subscription fee.
