Amazon rolls out Prime Stations Internet radio service to all mobile users with Prime memberships A few lucky Amazon Prime users have been using the Prime Stations service for some time but now all mobile users with a membership have the ability (that means you, Android).
If you have a Prime membership ($99 per year) for Amazon, and have downloaded the Amazon Music App for your respective device (iOS, Android, Kindle Fire) you now have access to Prime Stations, "an ad-free, internet radio service you can enjoy at no additional cost to your Prime membership."

Amazon continues: "With Prime Stations, you can find a genre or artist you like and hit play to hear a continuous stream of music that you can pause, replay, or skip as many times as you'd like. As you listen and give songs a thumbs-up or thumbs-down, each station will adapt to your music tastes."

Basically, the service is similar to Pandora One, where you can listen to millions of tracks based on a track or artist or song you like in playlists.

Pandora, Spotify, Amazon, IHeartRadio.......they're all the same providing virtually all the same feature sets and limitations.

All of which are garbage in my eyes as I like to queue up music I KNOW I WANT TO HEAR and not have a random set inside a genre that I chose.

The free version of Spotify lets you choose specific songs, albums or artists. Yes, there are ads every few songs - but that's the price that you pay for a free service. There are also preset playlists and "stations" like many of the other services.

I listen to this all the time. The best thing is no commercials.
