Amazon adds playlist 'stations' to Prime Music in the UK

Better late than never.

Ten months after its US debut, Amazon is bringing Prime Stations to its music streaming cohort in Great Britain. The feature allows Prime Music listeners to launch ad-free playlists centred around an artist or genre, removing the need to queue tracks or weigh up individual recommendations. As you jam along to Amazon's picks, you can give each song a thumbs up or thumbs down to improve and personalise the algorithm. While welcome, this is a feature that many of Amazon's rivals have offered for years -- why it's taken so long to reach Prime Music in the UK is a mystery. Still, if you have an active Prime subscription, this should make the service a little more viable as your default streaming app.
