In addition to considering Amazon Music’s playlists and curated stations, the submitted details will be used by Amazon Music for Artists to determine where, when, and how to stream music to potential fans in places such as the Amazon Music activity feed, push notifications, Alexa alerts and prompts and genre browsing.
