Audi Introduces Amazon Music Services On All 2017 and 2018 Models
Merry Christmas from Audi, model owners!by Kirby Garlitos, on
In what can be considered an early Christmas present from Audi, owners of 2017 and 2018 model year Audis will now have access to Amazon’s music services, including Amazon Music Unlimited and Amazon Prime Music. The two services are now embedded into the infotainment systems of these models, as well as in the Audi MMI Connect smartphone app.
It can be accessed right from the car or through Audi’s MMI app
If you’re wondering whether the specific Audi model you own is included in the list of models that will get the new services, let me help you out. The two Amazon music streaming services are now available on 2017 and 2018 models of the A3, A4, A4 Allroad, Q7, TT, and R8. The 2018 A5 and Q5 models will also be getting the services. If you own a model that isn’t included in this list, that means that your vehicle does not support the services, at least not yet.
The two Amazon services work in different ways. It can be accessed right from the car or through Audi’s MMI app. Amazon Prime members also have access to a rich library of on-demand music content. If you’re a Music Unlimited member, you can access the full catalog of the streaming service, including tens of millions of songs to go with thousands of playlists from some of history’s biggest musical artists.
There’s also the option of not subscribing to either streaming service, so you’re not forced to spend money on them if you don’t want to.
Whatever option you take, the fact that there are “options” available is a huge victory in it of itself. It tells you that Audi is doing its part in providing top-quality services to its customer base.
