it's a little rough and half assed at launch but improving. I couldn't get anything to work at first but now very happy ... (more)

Thanks, It took them a couple days, but Amazon *finally* updated my Kindle Fire HD this morning with this music.

A little more than 3 years ago we launched Prime Instant Video, adding unlimited streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows to the existing Prime benefit of Free Two-Day Shipping. It has turned out to be one of the most important things we've done for Amazon Prime members. Today, we are doing it again for music — introducing Prime Music, the newest benefit of Prime membership. With Prime Music, you can listen ad-free to over a million songs and hundreds of expert-programmed Prime Playlists. Prime Music includes tens of thousands of albums from top artists like Daft Punk, P!nk, Bruno Mars, Blake Shelton, The Lumineers, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna. And we'll be adding more music all the time. Here's a list of popular artists in Prime Music.
In designing Prime Music, we wanted to remove the barriers between you and the music you love. We removed cost. You can listen to the entire Prime Music catalog for free — it's included in your Prime membership. We removed interruptions. Don't worry about having your music constantly disrupted by ads... you won't hear any. We removed listening restrictions. Choose exactly what song to listen to, repeat your favorite song over and over again, or download music to your phone or tablet to listen offline.
Finally, we removed one more barrier — deciding what to listen to. Just play any of the hundreds of Prime Playlists our music experts have created for you. Check out the Prime Playlists here.
Prime members in the US can start listening to Prime Music today at www.primemusic.com. Kindle Fire HD/HDX devices will get Prime Music in an automatic, over-the-air update. You can also download the latest Amazon Music app in the Android and iOS appstores. If you're not yet a Prime member, start a 30-day free trial today. We think you'll find the convenience of free two-day shipping combined with access to a huge selection of movies, TV, music and books to be an incredible value for just $99 a year.
smmaroof said: So far Amazon prime has no Amazon Video Streaming or Amazon Music streaming support for android devices. Stupid I haven't tried this myself, but I recently read that by using the Puffin browser, you can watch Prime video through that. Perhaps it might work for Prime music as well.
I already had the Amazon Music app installed, and it said nothing about Prime. Went into the Amazon App store app and there were no updates, even after checking. I then uninstalled the app and re-installed and not only did my icon change to the new one but I also now have the Prime music.
There's always bugs on new launches. No biggie when there's a work-around.

importcf said: letsspendlotsofmoney's logic: iTunes.....no Windows Phone support..... Thanks Apple! Amazon is not Apple or Google... I do realize that the widows market is smaller, but Amazon does sell many windows products and it would be nice to have it supported... Until then... I will use my Nokia Music app on my windows phone for plenty of commerical free music and no fees... Even cheaper than my Amazon prime...
Lots of people claim to find better deals from other retailers but I consistently check medium-big ticket items and rarely find a better price. I buy lots of non-perishable groceries,, toiletries, etc. at significant discounts delivered to my door. Last year I had about an order for every day of the year. Add Video and now Music on top of that and Prime is a no-brainer for me.
Lots of discussion about different devices, but oddly no mention of a couple that me thinks this feature is truly targeted at strengthening. The single function I really am disappointed to not have on my Fire TV is AmazonMP3, and Amazon is launching its own smartphone in a week. I am a fairly dedicated Windows Phone user, and have been on the fence about upgrading my low end Lumia 521 to a Lumia 925. This new Prime feature combined with Amazon's terrific customer service and return policies has me thinking about giving their new phone a try.
