The wait is over for all those who were waiting for Amazon to release their Prime Music service in India. The company has finally made their most-awaited music streaming service live here, which is accessible for Android, iOS and desktop users.

Techook had reported last month that Amazon Prime Music launch in India could be imminent, courtesy of the change spotted in terms of branding, in addition to a few reports about Amazon partnering with music labels like Saregama and Zee Music.

Amazon Music is limited to Prime members. So, before you can access the service, make sure that you’ve got an active Prime membership. Once you’ve opted for Amazon Prime, go to music.amazon.in on the desktop. Alternatively, you can also download Amazon Music mobile app for Android and iOS from their respective app stores.

Upon accessing Amazon Music for the first time, it asks users to agree to the ‘Terms of Use.’ Furthermore, users have to set their music preferences by language. At the time of writing this, Amazon provides music in a variety of languages like Hindi, English, Marathi, Malayalam, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Bengali, Bhojpuri, Gujarati and Rajasthani.

Amazon Prime membership costs Rs 999 per year, which includes several logistical benefits like one or two-day guaranteed delivery on eligible products at no additional cost in addition to access to their on-demand video streaming service Amazon Prime Video.

We’re in the process of putting Amazon Music to test so that we can better understand how it works and competes with some of the established players in the country like Saavn, Gaana, Google Play Music etc. We will share our experience shortly.
