Prime members can access Amazon Music Prime for free, but with less features.
Amazon Prime members now have free access to a feature called Amazon Music Prime, included in their $139-per-year package. However, non-Prime members can listen to music through Amazon Music Unlimited, which costs $120 per year.
A key difference between Music Prime and Music Unlimited is that the former only allows users to shuffle play and download pre-curated playlists. Music Unlimited offers more play control and offline downloads without restriction. Amazon Prime subscribers who also want access to Music Unlimited, need to pay an additional $9 per month, plus their Prime package.
Another difference is the audio quality, which only comes in "standard" for Music Prime subscribers. Music Unlimited offers HD, Ultra HD, and spatial audio quality options to its members.
