Initially, Canadians will be only be able to purchase the Echo, Echo Plus, and Echo Dot. Customers in Canada can begin streaming Prime Music within the Amazon Music app for iOS, Android, Mac, PC, Fire TV Stick Basic Edition and on any Web browser.

Amazon's voice-activated digital assistant Alexa, along with the voice-controlled Echo speaker devices, are finally available in Canada.

"Tens of millions of customers are already using Alexa, and today we're excited to bring her to Canada with an experience designed from the ground up for our Canadian customers", said Tom Taylor, Senior Vice President, Amazon Alexa.

Matt Kelleher, Morrisons Online Director, said, "Customers are increasingly using voice commands in their everyday lives to check the weather, play music, or find out the latest news". Control your listening through natural voice controls powered by Alexa, Amazon's cloud-based voice service, for the first time ever.

Amazon has slowly, but surely, begun bringing its popular Echo devices outside of the USA, and into a few other countries. Let us know what you're going to jump on.

Not a Prime member? Mobile listeners can also save music for offline playback on their mobile device when they don't have an internet connection. Amazon Prime Music has launched for Canadian users as well.

Morrison says this technology will be particularly helpful for people who are disabled or on the move. It will compete with Spotify and Apple Music in the Canadian market with one million songs-and yes, that includes songs by The Tragically Hip.

Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking.

The rollout is part of a wave of expansion to new countries; Japan just got a similar rollout last week.
