Amazon is offering a new way to buy music on its digital storefront.
Starting today, the company is introducing a way to download music directly from Amazon Music for free, rather than through a third-party service.
Amazon Music is already the best-selling streaming music service in the US.
The company announced a $5.99 monthly subscription fee earlier this year that it says will allow customers to access the service without needing a credit or debit card.
In a blog post announcing the change, Amazon said that if you already subscribe to a subscription, you will be able to access Amazon Music with just a single click.
In addition to the new download option, Amazon Music also includes a number of other improvements that customers can use to make music their own, including new features like sharing playlists, allowing artists to track and release their songs more frequently, and new ways to create playlists.
The update comes after a few months of controversy surrounding Amazon Music, including complaints that it charged higher fees for subscribers who bought music through a subscription.
The music industry group RIAA accused Amazon Music of violating the RIAPPA, a trade association that represents music industry players, by charging “subscriber fees” that were higher than what the labels paid to Amazon for streaming rights.
Last month, Amazon also took aim at RIAAs claims, saying that the company did not track and sell its own artists’ content, despite its claim to the contrary.
Amazon is still the only major streaming music company to offer a free streaming service.
Spotify, Apple Music, Rdio, Tidal, and SoundCloud all offer their own streaming services that users pay a monthly fee for.
Amazon offers free access to more than 1.5 billion songs, according to the company.
