According to the New York Times, e-commerce giant Amazon is planning a streaming music service of its own, in order to join the ranks of virtually every other tech company in existence. The streaming feature would give Amazon Prime subscribers free access to a library of thousands of songs, but without any advertising. It won’t include new releases, however, and Universal Music Group artists will be left out, according to the report. Amazon recently increased the price of an annual Prime subscription from $79 to $99.
