The highly competitive market of online music streaming has suddenly become even crowded. Internet merchandise behemoth Amazon recently launched it's new music streaming service Prime Music, one the company hopes to compete with services like Spotify, Pandora, Rdio, and Apple's new Beats Music, among other services.

Amazon's Prime Music is an additional music service for Amazon Prime subscribers, a service that previously had only streamed movies and TV shows. Artists such as Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Johnny Cash, and Bruce Springsteen already have their music available on the service, with a growing list of artists promised to follow. Prime Music also includes playlists that will be recommended to you based on your listening tastes, much like other streaming services. Amazon has also said there will be no advertising on Prime Music, but it is, after all, a subscription-only service.

Amazon is also developing a Prime Music app for the iPhone and Android, and have also made the service available on their Kindle devices.
