As controversial as this sounds, Amazon Music Unlimited could become the best music streaming service in 2020 – better than Apple Music and, yes, better than Spotify.
Admittedly, it won’t be easy for Amazon’s smaller, less-popular music service to take over the charts next year – Spotify has the industry in a vice grip and Apple Music gave its users a free three-month trial at launch and several deals since then. If you decide to sign up for the former right now, you’ll get three months free – that’s just as good as Apple Music and Spotify – but Amazon will need to sweeten the pot to get listeners on-board. There’s a historical data for this and it’s not just wishful thinking. Earlier this year, Amazon offered a killer deal on Amazon Music Unlimited during Amazon Prime Day where you could pay $1 for 4 months of service.
Popularity is great and it has its advantages, but at the end it comes down to the sound quality and device support – two areas that Amazon is making extensive improvements on in the coming months. One of the main areas here, in terms of hardware, is going to be the Amazon Echo Studio. It is Amazon’s Hi-Res answer to the Apple HomePod and, could really change the game for Amazon’s streaming service. "Not only does it make use of Amazon’s "ultra high definition” music streams, but it’s also supporting and championing Dolby Atmos and Sony’s 360 Reality Audio formats.
