  • The Amazon Music app has acquired the ability to stream music videos.
  • The new feature is currently only available to Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers.
  • Amazon is working on its own music video catalog for the feature.

Amazon has quietly added a new feature to the Amazon Music app on Android with a new update (opens in a new tab). As reported by the people of android fontthe latest version of Amazon Music allows users to stream music videos within the app.

Until now, the only major music streaming service that allowed users to stream music videos was YouTube Music. While Amazon hasn’t detailed how the new feature will work, it does say it will curate video playlists to make it easier for you to find all of your favorite artist’s music videos. Unfortunately, only Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers will be allowed to access music videos in the app.

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can join Amazon Music Unlimited for $8 a month. For non-Prime users, Amazon Music Unlimited costs $10 per month. The premium music subscription gives you access to 60 million songs and thousands of playlists.

The latest update to the Amazon Music app, which rolled out two weeks ago, added the “X-ray” feature, which provides interesting trivia about your favorite songs and artists. Amazon also added podcasts to its music streaming service in September, including a bunch of original shows.
