Amazon Music does not require any subscriptions or credit/debit cards, and it is available in the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany.

According to Amazon, users can play thousands of stations based on "any song, artist, era, and genre." Some of the playlists include "All Hits," "Fuego Latino," and "Holiday Favorites."

Amazon Music is designed for those without an existing Amazon subscription, as there are already benefits for Amazon Prime member and those who subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited.

Prime members can access a catalog of more than two million songs along with thousands of playlists and stations without ads, while Amazon Music Unlimited provides access to 50 million songs.

The Amazon Music app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Apple should retire iTunes Match by bundling it as a standard feature on 200 GB and 2 TB iCloud storage plans (and use storage space).
Heck no. I don’t need 200GB of storage and am happy with 50GB. However, I have music in my library you either can’t get anymore or isn’t on iTunes/Apple Music.
