Amazon in Australia

In December 2017, Amazon started providing their shipping service to residents in Australia.

At the start of February 2018 the company will begin their streaming music service for people in Australia and New Zealand. Beginning February 1, new subscribers can sign up for a free 90-day trial of Amazon Music Unlimited for a limited time.

Amazon Music Unlimited provides 45 million songs and hundreds of playlists, as well as personalized stations.

The company and Business Wire shared the following insight:

“We’re opening doors for our customers to have access to an incredible catalogue of music, and to be able to listen to some of their favourite artists while using the power of voice in exciting new ways.” – Sean McMullan, Head of International Expansion for Amazon Music

Alexa users will be able to connect Amazon Music Unlimited with their device to stream music and playlists with voice-activated commands.
