begin their listening experience with Amazon Music.”

With Amazon Music now available for customers in Mexico, music listeners
will be able to choose from a variety of options for music streaming
featuring a dynamic selection of hand-curated playlists and personalized
stations covering top international, and regional genres. For the
ultimate selection in music streaming, listeners can subscribe to the
Amazon Music premium tier, Amazon Music Unlimited, and have access to
more than 50 million songs and thousands of playlists and stations at a
variety of subscription tiers. Amazon Music Unlimited includes a wide
selection of popular and emerging artists from the region, and thousands
of hand-curated playlists and stations including “Mexicanísimo,” a
hand-curated playlist presenting Regional Mexicana acts; “Hecho en
México,” which offers a mix of modern and classic songs by Vicente

On Amazon Music, searching for the perfect song by scrolling through a
visual interface is no longer required, as music listeners will soon be
able to discover new favorites and easily return to popular playlists,
albums and more with the launch of Amazon Alexa this month. Customers in
Mexico will join the tens of millions of Amazon Music listeners in more
than 40 countries around the world who have the ability to use natural
language commands to listen to music, including simply asking Alexa to
play the latest single or album from their favorite artist, or to easily
find playlists and stations based on a variety of moods and genres,
anywhere they go. Amazon Music is available in the Amazon Music app for
iOS and Android, on Mac, PC, Fire TV Stick Basic Edition and any Web
Browser, and on the recently announced Amazon Echo family of devices
when they begin to ship this month in Mexico.

Alexa will soon be available in the Amazon Music app in iOS and Android,
making it easy for customers to just ask for music in a variety of ways
on the go, including:

  • Home from work and want to unwind? Try asking for music by mood,
    including, “Alexa, play relaxing music.”
  • Looking for the latest album by a certain artist? Ask, “Alexa, play
    the latest album by Camilla Cabello,” and Alexa will play Camilla.
  • Hear a song on the radio that you want to play again? Request, “Alexa,
    play ‘Circo Soledad’ by Arjona.”
  • Looking for music from a specific genre and era? Ask, “Alexa, play
    rock music from the 70s” or, “Alexa, play pop music from the 2000s.”
  • In the mood for a curated playlist? Ask, “Alexa, play a Cumbia
    playlist” or, “Alexa, play a Reggaetón playlist.”
  • Not sure what you want to play? Just say, “Alexa, play music” to hear
    a station based on your personal listening habits.
