  • Amazon Music is now growing faster than Spotify and Apple Music

It's also worth noting that Amazon Music Unlimited is cheaper than most rival services.

According to a report in the Financial Times that is based on Midia Research data, the Amazon Music Unlimited subscriber base jumped by 70 percent in the past year, landing Amazon in the number three spot in the industry with about 32 million subscribers.

Streaming music in the U.S. is viewed by many as a two horse race between Apple Music and Spotify but as highlighted by a recent report from the Financial Times, it'd be foolish to count out the third place competitor. Apple services head Eddie Cue recently revealed that Apple Music has about 60 million subscribers.

Amazon Music's growth is largely because of Alexa and Echo devices.

Amazon Music Unlimited has been making huge strides as of late. "People don't pay as much attention to it [as to Apple and Spotify], but it's been hugely effective".

For a limited period, you can get 4-months Amazon Music Unlimited subscription for just $0.99, you can sign-up here to take advantage of this offer. That's especially true if you have Amazon Prime (it's only $8 per month for Prime subscribers) or if you only use an Amazon smart speaker to listen ($4 per month), which may also help the service grow. Only 5% of Spotify's users are in that category.

"We're not battling for the same customers as everyone else", Amazon's Steve Boom confirmed.
