Three Amazon Prime Services Everyone Should Know About
Amazon introduced Amazon Prime in India at the end of 2016. Initially, the subscription was priced at Rs 499 with 12 months validity. However, at the end of 2017, the charges were doubled to Rs 999. The company also offers a free trial of the Prime membership for the first 30 days, where a user gets a clear picture of the services provided under the Prime membership.
Free One-Day Delivery
Amazon offers free delivery for every customer. However, the price of the product should be more than Rs 500. If you are a prime member, then the company offers free delivery within one day. Note that, normal users have to pay Rs 50 to get the delivery in one day. Users living in Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai, and Hyderabad can avail free same day delivery at a discounted price.
Amazon Prime Video
Though it does not have as many exclusive titles as Netflix, the library is getting better by the day. Be it Indian stand-up comedy shows or original series, it has everything. One can access Amazon Prime Video from a smartphone or a computer. Young Sheldon, Two And A Half Men, and Grey’s Anatomy are some of the favourite shows, that we keep an eye on. The perks don’t end there, as one can download these shows to watch them in the offline mode. The collection also has a dedicated section of children’s shows and movies.
Amazon recently launched its music streaming service here in India. A member can access millions of songs. The service offers ad-free music experience with curated music playlists. Users can access Amazon Music from a computer or a smartphone running on iOS or Android. The library consists of music from almost all the regional languages including Kannada, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, and Tamil.
We have used Gaana, Hungama, Wynk, and other music services and none of those match the Amazon Music’s choice of songs. However, Amazon is still not clear about the number of songs its library has but, so far, we have been able to find almost any song we asked Alexa for.
