In order to get a grip on the highly competitive music streaming industry Amazon decided to bring important updates to its Prime Music streaming service. When we can easily go to iTunes, Spotify or Google Music, why should we choose to stream our music through Amazon Prime when we know it holds a smaller music library?
Amazon is working on that problem as we speak and it’s constantly adding more artists and albums, which you can keep a track on by looking at the “New to Prime” section that came along with the latest update.
More importantly, Amazon Prime now allows you to playback songs stored on your MicroSD card offline, feature that has been highly requested by users. Until the latest update, the offline streaming service was reserved only to songs stored in the device’s internal storage, which offers a limited number of songs that you can carry around everywhere.
As music lovers, we can all relate to the annoying process of having to choose which songs we’ll be able to listen to whenever we want, making us go for apps that allow offline streaming unlimited by storage capacity.
Amazon Prime has that now and it is not the only interesting update. The Prime Music streaming service that Amazon is trying hard to promote on the market also received Android Wear support, so you can easily control your Amazon Prime streaming service from a comfortable wearable. In time and by adding more to their library, Amazon Prime might gain in popularity and have a chance to properly compete with major streaming services that are dominating the music streaming industry.
