Amazon's Spotify and Apple Music competitor is insanely cheap right now

However, Amazon seems to be raising the white flag by adding the Chromecast support into its Prime Music app.

I would personally buy one of the Google speakers from John Lewis as they have a good reputation for warranties.

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). Amazon has quietly updated the Amazon Music app for Android to include Chromecast support, allowing Android users to shoot music from their device to a nearby Chromecast. It was spotted first by TechHive and only appears to be available for the Android version of the app. Some users who updated still aren't seeing the feature, though, myself included.

Users with access to the feature say they can use it to stream content on any Cast-enabled device, not just Chromecast.

Amazon and Google's relationship over the past few years has been nothing short of an epic love-war popcorn-worthy chess battle.

The Android app could already connect to other Bluetooth devices, but Chromecast support had not been enabled until now. 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.

After months of neglect, it looks like Google has finally made its mind to release the Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based Google Assistant to Android tablets.

Until now, Amazon has not supported Google Cast on any of its devices or services, despite arguably being the most popular streaming standard around.

Google Assistant is also intuitive enough to learn the behaviour of the device owner over time and improve its service.
