Amazon Music Unlimited expands to 28 more countries. So what?

GeneralEdward KiledjianComment

Amazon Music Unlimited is (in my opinion) just another streaming music service, but since it's Amazon, it's worth mentioning. 

It is expanding to 28 additional countries, so the world a little more inclusive today. Similar to another (nameless) streaming service, Amazon Music Unlimited stresses the fact that its playlists are "human curated".

I live in Canada, and the Echo product line just launched here. Chances are the country you are in (if not the US) either doesn't have or just received the Amazon Echo line of products. For those of us not yet invested in the Amazon voice assistant product line, there is little to get excited here. 

Not very exciting for most of you but news worthy since its Amazon.
