Shares of Spotify Technology SA fell 4 percent on Monday after a report said Amazon.com Inc was in talks to launch a free ad-supported music service, which is expected to intensify competition for the music streaming leader.

If the others don't leak in the meantime, then we'll get back to you on June 3 with the official details from Apple. The report said that this can be done via a three-finger tap gesture on the keyboard area to trigger the function.
This new service, if it actually appears, would in theory be more convenient than those options - at least for the casual music listener who only wants to hear a couple of the latest hits every now and again. "Might" being the operative word, however, since according to the Billboard report what Amazon is planning here will be a limited offering, compared to the much more comprehensive catalog of music Spotify tries to offer. While that price point is not any different from the monthly fees charged by Spotify and Apple for their industry-leading products, Amazon Music Unlimited access costs $7.99 for Prime members and $3.99 for Echo-only listening.
Does the world need yet another streaming music service?
