In fact, it has started early with a big discount on its Amazon Music Unlimited streaming service.

Chromecast Support: You can now select music on your Android device, and have the music play on your Chromecast enabled devices.

You can also download tracks to listen to offline on smartphones or tablets.

When it was revealed that Google might be working on a competing product, it stood to sour Amazon's feelings towards the company further. Whatever be the reasoning for this feature, it is a great move for the consumers.

A previous update to the app brought along Alexa support to the app.

Amazon and Google may be rivals but it would be good if they could sometimes play nice together.

People wanting to give Music Unlimited a go will also have to have an Amazon account as well. And a single subscription allows users to stream to multiple devices, notably Amazon's own Echo speaker.

Normally, an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription costs £7.99 a month or £79 for a whole year if you are an Amazon Prime member too (£9.99 if not).

Additionally, the Android users will also be able to customize whether or not their keyboard has borders on the keys, as well as whether or not symbols and secondary characters. Amazon removes Chromecasts from its store, Google disables YouTube on Echo Shows, Amazon removes the Prime Video app from the Play Store then for some reason returns it. It seems that long fight with Google is getting cold and now the Amazon is integrating the Chromecast functionality with the Amazon Music App.
