On Thursday, (AMZN) (AMZN) and Alphabet-owned (GOOGL) Google said that the companies were preparing to end a software standoff, such that the YouTube app will soon be available on Amazon’s Fire devices and Prime Video will be available on Google’s Chromecast and Android devices. It also means “customers will have even more ways to stream what they want, whenever they want, no matter where they are,” according to an Amazon executive. As observed by USA Today and others, it doesn’t mean you can use video-enabled Echo devices to watch YouTube, nor does it mean Google’s Home speaker is now for sale on Amazon.

Rumors started circulating last week that Amazon was exploring a free, ad-supported tier of its streaming music service. Turns out there was something to those rumblings. Today, the commerce giant announced that Alexa device owners in the US will be able to listen to top playlists and stations on Amazon Music at no additional charge, even if they are not Amazon Prime subscribers. Of course, this news also comes on the same day that Amazon's frenemies over at Google launched ad-supported free YouTube Music streaming on Google Home smart devices.
Amazon today announced the launch of a free, ad-supported music service in the U.S. that will be available to anyone who wants to play free music on their Echo speaker. Amazon Music Unlimited, meanwhile, has 50 million songs. The new service gives Echo owners a way to enjoy free music from Amazon on their Echo, instead of having having to turn to a third-party free provider, like Spotify or Pandora.
The free service, announced Thursday, will be available to customers with Alexa devices who don’t subscribe to Amazon Prime, the loyalty program known mostly for shipping discounts. The new service will feature general-interest playlists like “Pop Culture,” 80s music and country, Amazon said in a statement. It will compete with existing free services from Spotify Technology and Sirius XM-owned Pandora.
