Amazon is testing Prime Lite membership in India, available to select Prime members
Amazon is testing a new subscription service for users in India. Dubbed Prime Lite, the new subscription is currently available in beta for limited Prime members nationwide. In December 2021, Amazon Prime increased the annual subscription price from Rs. 999 per year to Rs. 1,499 per year. Now, the new subscription offer, Prime Lite, comes at Rs. 999. Prime Lite will be slightly different from Amazon Prime in terms of benefits and services offered.
According to a report by OnlyTech.com, Amazon is rolling out a new subscription service dubbed Prime Lite. The news was also confirmed by Gadgets 360, with the Prime Lite at an introductory price of Rs. 999 per year. The subscription is currently only available in beta for limited users across India.
Unlike Amazon Prime’s same-day or one-day delivery, Prime Lite offers two-day delivery on products. For Prime Video, Prime Lite users can access unlimited content, similar to Amazon Prime. However, the content will not be available in HD format and will come with advertisements. It can be streamed on two devices at once, one of which must be a mobile phone.
Although the Prime Lite offers almost similar benefits and services to Amazon Prime, there is one major difference. Users cannot access Amazon Prime Music with the new Prime Lite subscription. Other differences include no access to free EMIs, free ebooks, or Prime Gaming.
As a reminder, Amazon revised the cost of Prime membership in India in December 2021, making it 50% more expensive. Prime annual membership has been increased to Rs. 1,499 after a hike of Rs. 500 or more than 50% from the previous price of Rs. 999. Meanwhile, the monthly price has been increased by almost 39% to Rs .179 from rupees. 129, while Amazon Prime’s quarterly plan increased by more than 39% to Rs. 459 from Rs. 329.
