The Amazon Music Unlimited streaming service now offers a $14.99 per month “Family Plan.” The new option allows up to six family members to access the service simultaneously, and also receive personal recommendations. The new plan is currently available in the U.S.
Family members must be at least 13 years old, and there is no unified “family” account, as each member needs to have an Amazon account.
Are Family Plan accounts shared?
Accounts are not shared and there is no common family profile. Each family member has an Amazon account with personalized recommendations. The only thing that’s shared is the payment, only $14.99/month total for up to 6 accounts. One family member is responsible for the monthly charge, using a shared payment method.
What’s a “shared payment method?”
A shared payment method is a credit or debit card that one family member agrees to share with each family member on the Family Plan. This payment method can be used to purchase items on Amazon. The first time a physical purchase is made on the shared payment method, family members are asked to enter the full card number for verification. Digital purchases do not require this step. After a family member makes a purchase, the subscriber of the Family Plan will receive an email listing the items that were purchased on the shared payment method. Find more details on the plan here.
Will we each have our own music libraries and personalized recommendations?
Yes. You’ll see all of your own music, library, playlists, and personalized recommendations. Each family member (up to six) has the same functionality as an Individual Plan subscription.
Users can also pay upfront for an entire year of the Family Plan for $149, bringing the monthly price of the service down to $12 per month.
The Amazon Music app for iOS devices is free, and is available in the App Store. [GET IT HERE] For more information about the Amazon Music Unlimited’s new Family Plan, visit the Amazon Music Unlimited website.
