But do note that the free Amazon Music service will also come with ads which are unskippable. If you have an Amazon Prime subscription then you will get unlimited Amazon Music without any interruption of ads.

Same goes to YouTube Music it will also come free to your Google Home device along with ads. You can command your smart speaker to play like 'play jazz' and it will find a station to get you the song. Basically, it is similar to how Google Play Music's free tier works. But there is a catch you can't demand a specific album, artist or song on both the free offering of Amazon Music and YouTube Music.

Do note that the free Amazon Music subscription is currently available for only the US users. Meanwhile, YouTube Music free offering is limited to the following countries only.
US
Canada
Mexico
Australia
Great Britain
Ireland
Germany
France
Italy
Spain

Sadly the service is not yet available in India, but we can expect it soon arriving in the country.
