Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos The information comes via a well-sourced report in BuzzFeed, and confirms leaks in April that Amazon is finally ready to launch a long-rumored music service to compete with an increasingly crowded field that includes Google, Apple, Spotify and others. The report says Amazon’s offering will be packaged as yet another add-on that is intended to make its annual $99 Prime membership more attractive. In other words, Prime members will soon get to enjoy an online jukebox in addition to 2-day shipping, and Amazon’s limited but growing selection of e-books and movies.
