How to get the best music streaming on Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify, Rdio and more
Newsweek is reporting that Amazon is now adding more music to its app stores, as well as adding a lot more content to the Google Play and Spotify services.
The news comes from an anonymous source at the New York Times, who also claims to have access to the source’s sources inside the company.
The new additions are coming in the form of “art and pop” genres, including hip-hop, R&B, jazz, electronica, indie, pop, pop-punk, and more.
The Times also reports that Amazon Music will have “more and more genres,” including “glam rock” and “punk,” which the Times says is a direct reference to the fact that the music streaming service has recently added some new genres, like electronic dance music.
Amazon Music’s app store has now added nearly 600 songs to its library, and will be adding more new genres as it continues to add new music to the service.
The new additions should help Amazon differentiate itself from competitors, such as Google Play Music, Rdios, and Spotify.
It also adds a lot of new content to its music streaming apps, including artists and songwriters, which the New Times claims is another sign that the company is moving towards more content.
As for the new “art” genres that Amazon will be including, they include “electronic dance music,” “electronica,” “pop punk,” “jazz,” “rock,” “hip-hop,” “ska,” “dance,” “rap,” and “hip hop.”
Amazon has also added “art, culture, music, arts, and crafts” to its “music” section, and has added “artist, producer, composer, and musician.”
Amazon has also confirmed that the new music will come from artists that it owns the rights to, which could include the likes of Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, and Taylor Swift.
Amazon will continue to expand its music library, which will also include some new music, and is already adding music from other artists.
The company recently added “hiphop, hip-hallelujah, rapping, and other genres” to their “art,” “culture,” and music” sections, which is another indication that the service is adding more artists and genres to its catalog.
