I've just found out that Amazon music can now be listened to for free with Ads via Alexa.

Sorry if you already know this.

Ask your Alexa to play a song and find out for yourself.

That only works if you don’t have prime already, the ad based version is for those who don’t want prime.

Oh ok, thanks for the information.
Would be good if this worked when you have more than one Alexa device
If you already have Prime (but not Music unlimited)

Can you deselect prime From your Alexa so you cab get unlimited music with ads?

The free service only allows global playlists and stations and does not allow you to request specific artists or songs
peees me off when I only have prime and it blocks the song I request

one way around this is to ask Alexa to "Play the top songs by (artist, say David Bowie)

Then if it plays the song I wanted, I then add it to my playlist

Currently got about 600 of the best songs I know in my playlist, without having unlimited music

Springsteen's new album "Western Stars" is one of his best and available in full on youtube
OP takes me to a 30 day trial.
