  • Needs Garlic Dec 9, 2020

    By lou spuss
    Not a bad music app. Selection is good could be better. I’m with the others about the songs/artists “disappearing” without notice, it’s frustrating and makes me switch to a different app. I am a touch OCD so when I add a song to a named playlist and it doesn’t add into the overall library of “my music” I get frustrated. I too listen to music for 8-12 hours a day while working and commuting. Sometimes I would like to have the ability to shuffle every song in my library from all playlists, that is impossible with the current setup on the app. “My music” should be the cumulative collection of every song that has been downloaded or added to a playlist. Lastly, I should never hear the same song repeat itself day after day when in shuffle mode. Most days I will start my drive by hitting shuffle and I hear the same songs as the day before. This shouldn’t happen when I have hundreds of songs in each playlist an my music. It’s a simple program of “each song should only play once until all others have done the same” no matter how many times the app has been closed. I use the app because I can’t stand Top 40 stations; it’s like being mule kicked by a rhino. The app needs playback help, music selection is decent not great. If I had to pay for this without my prime subscription I would look elsewhere, the value is currently not there.

    Ive loved using this in conjunction with my Amazon Echo. I have Prime but don't pay for unlimited, and I've found 90% of the songs I want to listen to within the 2 million songs available. Obviously there is not the range of playlists that you get with Spotify, but I always have something worth listening to. What would make it perfect is if Jeff Bezos paid his workers a decent wage.

    Super easy, straight forward. They dont have everything but they have a lot! Great podcasts (which is what is mainly use it for) and also it's all linked to your amazon account...what's not to love! I love when apps make it easy to sign up and use their service! It took me a while to figure out spotify honestly, and then once I did I had issues w/ my password working and then billing so I was looking for a better music app. Found it! This is why Amazon is taking over, cuz they do the job right

  • Thought about the music unlimited. Oct 8, 2020

    By bunnbub54
    I just wanted to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE music. I listen to music literally ever day. But there is one thing that really gets on my nerves. The music unlimited thing is a good idea but, some songs that I really like to listen to are music unlimited, and I LOVE to listen to Taylor Swift but, a few days ago when I tried to play it, it said that it was music unlimited. But maybe you could have like “pay 10$ for one week of music unlimited songs” or “Pay 20$ for a year” or something like that. You don’t have to that but it’s just a suggestion. 😊 Update: As I said before I love music and I like the music unlimited idea but it’s just kind of expensive and when I try to listen to certain songs sometimes the day after I listen to them they become music unlimited when we don’t pay for it in the first place. So I was thinking that the person wanting to listen to music but can’t because it is unlimited could pay, say, $20-$30 for a whole year or 1/2 a year of unlimited songs. I’m not trying to cut how much money you get I’m just throwing out some ideas that you could possibly look at and talk it over. I hope that these ideas come to be useful in the future.

  • Keep listening feedback is annoying May 19, 2020

    By HillaryLaweeze
    I hate many things about this app, but the feature most bothersome to me of late is the keep listening feature. The sleep timer is turned off, but every hour I get asked am I still listening to music. Did I stop the music?! I have my device plugged in across the room because it’s not compatible with Legrand digital audio (fix this too!). So, every hour when the music stops I have to go press keep listening. I’m not opposed to exercise, but I’m trying to work, and this incessant disruption makes me want to pay for a different streaming music service. This should only happen if I engaged the sleep timer. This is a useless feature, especially if I am actually streaming on WiFi and have the stream only on WiFi feature engaged or am in offline mode listening to downloaded music. Get rid of this. Another huge annoyance is the amount of data this app uses even in data saver mode. My daily commute (160 minutes total streaming time) uses 1 GB of data! Maybe it would use less data if the lyrics feature could be disabled. Finally your app support was useless for providing feedback, so hopefully someone is reading these reviews.

    I mean... It works. But it's expensive for what it is. They dont have the same library that spotify does, they have awful playlists, and the app is buggy. It doesnt always respond to my taps, it lags, sometimes it just wont search a song or you have to be very specific with the terms you search (puncuation etc). Also even when you add songs to the queue, it just wont do it. I had a free trial and I still paid too much for it.

  • Decent , but could be better Jan 22, 2020

    By REEbeachbabe
    I use this music app all. the. time. I work out several days a week and play this while I’m driving most of the time. There are several things that drive me nuts about this app: First of all, songs are constantly suddenly not a usable file, and you have no idea unless you check your library frequently. There’s no notification nor replacement file provided, you have to search and find it, again, for yourself. Sometimes, the song/artist isn’t even available anymore. Secondly, there isn’t a way to play just ONE song and be done. If you play a song, the songs in your library or the songs in whatever search you’re in automatically follow. You have to create a playlist with only one song on it to have that option, which is obviously absurd. Lastly, the songs skip/have pauses semi-frequently, no matter what service I’m connected to- (various wi-fis or cellular). Sometimes the pauses are rather long. Sometimes I have to close out the app completely and reopen it to get it to play again. SO obnoxious. IMO, the annual cost of the unlimited annual plan is too expensive for these reasons. I keep it active however because I don’t want to go through the hassle of beginning a new library somewhere else. Sigh. If you’re thinking about buying this (the unlimited version, which isn’t free/included with your prime membership), I’d look elsewhere.

    Good app, BUT! There is a problem when you go to search. It Willi buffer continuously, then tell you; ' sorry, not able to find now. Try later'. You guys need to speed it up. Please fix the search. It would be appreciated. Also, I can't figure out how to delete songs. I got loaded with songs that I didn't download. Thank you. 1/18/21 had enough of the buffering. Songs just stopping. Great music selection, but too inconsistent. I want to sit back and listen, but I can't relax, it's gonna stop.

    A few days ago the app booted me out and made me sign in. As a result, I lost playlists to all my offline music. At that point the app kept me from playing the music. I reinstalled, that has not helped. Also, It also kicked me out of the PC app, requiring an additional security code to log in, which leads to a dead end with no way to log in. Online music seems fine at this time. Very frustrating when paying for a premium service. Strongly considering changing services if Amazon does not fix.

  • Possibly the most frustrating music app Jun 6, 2019

    By Floody85
    I am currently subscribed to the unlimited and will be done with it for good after June is over. Short version; of you have prime then it’s included, great. Otherwise save your money. I like to listen to stations as it gives me a better variety; first off the variety of similar artists was soo off pace for the first few days I was pressing thumbs down more than I was anything else. These were stations I created and couldn’t believe there were algorithms out there saying they were similar artists, furthermore it would continually throw the same artists I thumbed down MULTIPLE Times in there with different songs that weren’t any better. Secondly and possibly even more frustrating is that when I paused a song and then would go to press play on that song 5-10 minutes later I would just get the “loading song” description and that’s it. I would then need to skip or push to the next song ,then press play again in order for it to start playing music. Lastly if I searched an artist and then created a station off of that artist I would notice that if paused that station and then resumed within 5-10 minutes it wouldn’t resume on the station it would resume on most previously searched artist.. free pandora is a better choice than the current state

  1. Prime Music provides ad-free music streaming and a unique catalog of millions of songs and thousands of stations for countless listening possibilities
  2. My Music stores all purchased songs from Amazon and lets you import music from your iTunes collection for a flexible and complete music library
  3. Always getting the words wrong? Find your favorite songs with Alexa, then use X-Ray to ensure you get the lyrics right

  • Listen every day Feb 21, 2019

    By Jfzxbuhgvv567
    I think the hardest part is learning how to utilize the setup the best. I would click best of prime and expect to hear all the top hits, but that included others favorite songs as well (rock, jazz, country, metal, all the genres). So instead of skipping 10 songs to find one I liked I made my own playlist and added songs I liked to it. That worked for a while as I never get tired of my favorite songs, but I wanted to explore more music. So I went to stations that were different than "today's hits" and had major nostalgia! Beatles, Beach Boys, 80's, 90's, and the best of the recent decade were filled with songs we remember but haven't heard for a while. Now I have several stations and just listen to my favorite songs once in a while. I really do listen every day, well unless my wife plays it on her phone as we share an account and you can only have one device streaming at a time but that's another story.

  • Badly needed feature Oct 15, 2020

    By Sammy-T
    I like to shuffle all of my more than four thousand songs so that I always get a really varied listening experience, and I do listen a lot. It would be really cool to be able to play two or more album tracks together regardless of circumstance. That is, these tracks from an album are always played together in one particular order regardless of whether the rest of the music is shuffled or not. Examples: The Beatles” Sgt. Pepper... is always followed by “With a little help from my friends”. Also, from the first Allman Brothers’ album, “Don’t wantcha no more” is always followed by “Cross to bear”. XTC’s “Summer’s cauldron” should always be followed by “Grass”. Pure Prairie League’s “Falling in and out of love” should be followed by “Amy”. That would be a really cool feature and would make my listening experience perfect. As it is I had to make a Connected Songs playlist in order to listen to these sequences the way I prefer.

  • Good but can be better Apr 7, 2020

    By Colbat King
    Good app but has a few annoying problems. They allow you to view most of your favorite music but the problem is, the unlimited music thing. You have to pay a small amount of money for hundreds of good songs. Mostly any good song is in the unlimited music part. It’s really annoying. Anyway you pay a small amount but over time it becomes a lot of money. It’s really bothering wand I wish they would stop the unlimited music thingy. But even if they wanted to keep it maybe take off a chunk of songs so we can have good music.( Developers this might get you more customers!) but in truth is an okay app. I would say go ahead but be warned a lot of songs are restricted so it’s quite annoying. Me and my friends have been really bothered and have started to go to other apps. I can’t though because I have an awesome dad who is watching out for me and let’s me use this app but I’m starting to get to the point where I’d rather have no music than this app. It’s getting on my nerves. People! Be WARNED!!! It could bug you Badly. But it’s a good app and if you want go ahead. I just can’t express how annoying this can be.

  • Great!... But One problem Aug 7, 2020

    By Carleigh Hare😜🤣🥳😍
    Okay so don’t get me wrong it’s amazing and all but I have a problem that for some reason just happened so I was getting on music and I keep all my favorite music on my offline music playlist those who know this app know how to get to that ( by pressing those three dotes on the top right corner) so I tapped that and nothing happens I closed the app and everything and it won’t work I’m really confused and frustrated so until the decides to start working I can’t listen to my music and this is the only app I have for my music so until then no music for me this is a major bummer PLEASE FIX THIS! Update; okay I’m REALLY annoyed at this point I searched up offline music in the search bar and it popped up and it dark grey and won’t let me access it, seems to me offline music has stopped on the app and no longer exist I’m REALLY REALLY annoyed I had so much music on there and it’s all completely gone I lost everything this is very frustrating to me if this isn’t fixed I’m deleting the app and leaving a bad review😤😡

  • Music review. Jul 29, 2020

    By glevumguy
    The music quality is great, and the price excellent. Though don’t go escalating it over time as you have done with the price of kindle books. Once, all below $2 now they are almost the same price as the hard copy book... There are a some things that would make the listening experience better for me. First of all videos, if available, related to the music... Then some way to see the history of what I’ve recently been listening to, and also a way of ‘saving’, whilst browsing, what I would like to listen to in the future. I sometimes leave the window open on what I would like to listen to next, but on re-opening that window, say the next day, it’s lost as I’m sent to the ‘home’ window (or ‘Home Page’ is it called ?)... And lastly why is an ebook now about the same price as the hard copy ? In life, as in business, quality is often more rewarding to pursue than monetary profit... but such subtleties, to the detriment of success, are lost if the focus is solely on the bottom line. m

  • Playlists & more Aug 4, 2020

    By Fancythat918
    I would like more flexibility on how I add music to my playlists if I had them to add them to a specific list they are not in my general list. If I add everything to my general list my playlist gets bigger than I like so I end up just dumping music. Also I like hearing an entire album but if I download the whole thing it doesn't mean I want to keep the whole thing. Be nice to set tags or reminders when you downloaded so you could go back and review and evaluate. Also I hear songs on albums that aren't in the general mainstream that I really like. It would be fun to have maybe a WhatsApp community or some other type of group where you could share songs you liked with other people who like similar music where you could talk about what a song means to you or what you really like another artist. I could live a sheltered life and that already exists. But anyway. That's just a few things for my feedback. I generally think of a lot welcome to tag me up for additional feedback.

But we cannot hear them after we go ofline and want to listen the songs which we had downloaded. It shows that 'no internet connection' then what is the use of downloading the songs. Hope that you will work on the problem.

  • I like but let’s talk Jan 1, 2019

    By Shaolins Own
    I’m subscribed to the unlimited edition (as well as a prime obv) where I paid for the year upfront for all the music you got. I’ve been using your app for about a year so far. You’re UI is solid, but there is so much clutter and overlap in your content/songs it makes the overall experience when searching for specific versions of an artists recordings stressful. You will find the same song on 9 different versions of albums some of which are legit and should be “duplicates” but it’s just your orchestration and layout is sloppy. I think using release date of said album for example as an organization method would be a really simple way to manipulate the data so it’s not so messy looking. Take Frank Sinatra’s artist results for example. When scrolling through the albums available, it’s all over the place. One of his major albums is like 7 or 8 rows down in the search results, while other single song albums or various versions are scattered in between and all over. Organize the results on your UI and I think it might be 4.5 star material. You lose a half star because while content is there in some way the price point is high for already prime subs.

    I just bought an Echo Dot specifically to be able to cast from Amazon Music Unlimited to my hi-fi. I've spent days trying to find the "Add to Play Queue" and "Play Next". Finally I've found them: they ONLY appear when I'm NOT casting. How utterly stupid. Without this feature then whenever I select what I want to play next it immediately interrupts the track that is currently playing. It renders the whole setup more or less useless. Looking at the Amazon forums this issue has clearly been going on for over a year. I will try Spotify, unless that works out the Echo Dot is getting returned!
