Amazon will close Amazon Music Unlimited in 2019, the company announced today, leaving customers with only Amazon Music on the platform.
Amazon Music has been an Amazon-wide initiative for a decade, and it has served as a way for customers to listen to music without having to purchase any Amazon-branded products or services.
The new Amazon Music policy states that customers can continue to access all of their favorite music services, but it also leaves the door open for new products and services from the company.
Amazon said that customers who want to continue using Amazon Music will have to purchase their own music, but the company has also made it clear that users will not be able to add new music to their Amazon Music library, as the service will be shut down.
The company also announced that it will not offer an Amazon Prime Music service anymore.
The announcement comes just two days after the company launched a new line of devices, including an Alexa-enabled home speaker.
The Echo Show, a $399 device that comes with an Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, Alexa voice assistant, and the Echo Dot Remote, has been popular among music fans and cord cutters.
Amazon will continue to sell the Echo Show through the end of the year, but will also begin selling an Echo Dot Echo Dot Prime that comes equipped with the Alexa voice recognition capabilities.
