Amazon Music Chromecast support arrives for Android users

Right now, it's offering a three-month subscription to its music streaming service Amazon Music Unlimited for $.99. But Google's Chromecast wasn't one of them until now. This service is available via a mobile app on both Android and iOS, and now one of those two apps (Android) now has support for Google Cast. Not all Android users had the ability to connect Amazon Music to a Chromecast at that point, but now it appears the new feature is official.

For those unfamiliar with the service, Amazon Music Unlimited is an on-demand music streaming platform which offers access to around 40 million songs.

The shopping bonanza will last all weekend, and is followed by Black Friday's online equivalent Cyber Monday on November 27. From there, you should be able to select any Chromecast-enabled device, such as a Google Home, an Android TV, or, well, a Chromecast.

Users with access to the feature say they can use it to stream content on any Cast-enabled device, not just Chromecast. Recent news suggests, however, that Amazon is once again working on its relationship with Google - or at least that it can profit from Google's products.

The pre-Black Friday deal has been put together to celebrate a year since Amazon Music Unlimited launched.

Amazon did the same for the Apple's AirPlay and Apple TV, mind you, but then the companies announced in June that Amazon Prime Video would be making its way to the Apple TV by the end of the year.

But Google fired back recently when it removed YouTube support from Amazon's Echo Show. It's a similar process that would apply to watching YouTube on an Echo Show, or listening to Google Play Music on an Amazon Echo... so let's hope we're going to see that arrive in the future.
