If you're looking to test out a new streaming music service. Amazon Music Unlimited is a great option. And right now you'd be crazy not to try it: New users who sign up for at least a month of service will get a third-generation Echo Dot for just a buck—and you won't have to give it back when you cancel.
If you're not a Prime member, Amazon Music Unlimited costs the same $10-a-month as Apple Music and Spotify, but Prime members get it for only $8/month. Once you subscribe, you'll get an excellent app and web interface, along with ad-free access to some 60 million songs, all of which can be played hands-free on your new Echo Dot.
We reviewed this Echo Dot way back in October 2018 giving it four out of five stars and an Editors' Choice award. This version is a big upgrade over its predecessor in terms of sound. "It’s just as capable as the original, it’s prettier, and it sounds much, much better," we said in our review. And you can always hook up a Bluetooth speaker or pair of headphones if you want better sound.
So you're getting a month of access to basically every song ever written and one of the best smart speakers for $9 or $11 dollars. And if you don't want to keep it, just turn off the auto-renewal before the month's up and you'll still be able to enjoy Spotify or Apple Music on your Dot.
