Amazon Music launches in Brazil

Amazon Music has launched in Brazil with two streaming tiers.

Amazon Music Unlimited is now available in one of the biggest markets in what is a fast-growing region for streaming.

The online giant is reportedly the fastest-growing streaming service in percentage terms, albeit from a lower user base than rivals such as Spotify and Apple Music.

It follows the launch of Amazon Prime in Brazil earlier this week. The membership package comes with Amazon Prime Music, a limited streaming option with around 2 million songs.

“Today’s launch represents a momentous step for Amazon Music, as Brazil is one of the most important music destinations in the world,” said Federico Pedersen, head of Latin America for Amazon Music. “Our local team has focused heavily on creating a host of playlists and stations to spotlight the unique variety of Brazilian music and we can’t wait for new subscribers to start streaming today.”

Amazon Music listeners in Brazil can now choose from locally curated playlists and stations covering popular genres specific to the region, from Sertanejo and Samba to Pagode, Forró, Axé and more, as well as new music from international artists

Customer can sign up for a free three-month trial. Amazon Music Unlimited's individual plan then costs R$16.90 a month (£3.35).

In the UK, Amazon Music's Paul Firth will be speaking at the Music Week Tech Summit on October 8.
