By Deepa Seetharaman SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc launched a streaming music service on Thursday that comes free with its $99-a-year Prime membership program, but offers a smaller selection of recent hits than rivals Spotify and Apple Incs Beats Music. The new feature, dubbed Prime Music, allows subscribers of the $99-a-year program to stream or download more than a million songs without added fees or interruptions from advertisements. This is one of many steps Amazon has taken in recent months to broaden the appeal of Prime, which includes perks such as free two-day shipping, after increasing its price to $99 from $79. But the selection on Amazons streaming service is less robust than Spotify and Beats, which both offer more than 20 million songs.
