According to a report from Recode, Amazon is expected to release cheaper music service for Amazon Echo Devices. The service will cost much less than other music services. The subscription cost would beeither $4 or $5 per month.

Amazon’s $10.99/month Prime subscription fee also includes a streaming service called Prime Music, but it only offers “more than a million” songs compared to the near 30 million tunes found on Apple Music and Spotify.

Amazon’s new streaming options are expected to launch next month, September.Amazon’s new services might boast a bigger library, hence the negotiations with labels. Recode also reports the company has not yet finalised deals with music labels and publishers.Amazon’s Echo products prices are – $179.99 for Echo, $114.99 for Amazon Tap, and $89.99 for Echo Dot.

Presently it’s possible to hook the Echo to a variety of music services, including Amazon’s own Prime Music and competitors such as Spotify. But according to the Recode reports, cheaper service users can’t access this service’s music through their phones, but only through Amazon’s Echo speakers.

Amazon Echo is a voice-enabled wireless speaker developed by Amazon.com.The device is capable of voice interaction, music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, playing audiobooks, and providing weather, traffic and other real-time information.Echo was initially limited to Amazon Prime members or by invitation, but became widely available in the United States on June 23, 2015.

In certain points, noise cancellation feature at the noise-cancelling device can be easily suspended or otherwise can be terminated in response to receiving a suspension directive via an electronic non-audio signal.”
