Amazon Music has just become free for everyone as an ad-supported service. Amazon Music customers who didn’t have a subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited or Prime can now get the service for free on iOS, Android, and FireTV.

The service, which was previously only functioned on Amazon Echo devices, is currently available for free in the U.S., UK, and Germany with no subscription or credit card required.
