Is Amazon following in the footsteps of Spotify?
According to a report from The Verge, citing "multiple sources," the online retailing giant is chatting with music companies about launching a subscription service.
The report says Amazon is interested in an on-demand service similar to Spotify, where users pay a monthly fee and gain access to millions of songs.
Of course, Amazon would have several outlets for users to tote around a music subscription service, most notably their lineup of Kindle Fire tablets.
Amazon isn't the only one reportedly looking into a Spotify-style service. As The Verge points out, both Google and Apple have been exploring similar options.
