Amazon has recently announced that it will be raising the prices of its Amazon Music Unlimited plans in the United States and the United Kingdom. The new prices will take effect starting February 21st, 2023, according to reports from Engadget.
In the United States, the individual plan for Amazon Music Unlimited will now increase from $9.99 to $10.99 per month. Similarly, the student plan will go from $4.99 to $5.99. In the United Kingdom, the individual plan will change to £11 per month, up from £10, and the student plan will increase from £5 to £6.
This is not the first time Amazon Music Unlimited has raised its prices. Last year, the Music Unlimited for Prime subscription went from $8 to $9 per month or $79 to $89 annually. Amazon has indicated that the change is to help them provide more content and features to their customers. However, given the current economic climate, some may question if that is the sole reason behind the price increase.
With this change, Amazon Music Unlimited is now on par with Apple Music in terms of pricing, which costs $10.99 per month. Spotify, however, remains at $9.99 per month for the time being. It’s worth noting that all these services have different plans and pricing, so it’s important to check the details of the plans. Amazon Music Unlimited provides more than 75 million songs in HD, Spatial Audio support, ad-free streaming, integration with Alexa, and Podcasts.
It’s worth noting that the price changes currently only affect the Amazon Music Unlimited Individual Plan and the Amazon Music Unlimited Student Plan. Other Amazon Music plans are not currently affected.
