  • This is the best for me.... Aug 19, 2020

    By sassy4mp
    This is by far the best music app I have ever used. Easy to use. Easy to search and find songs. Super simple to create or add to a playlist... I have a playlist for my 3 yo son, one for our dog during thunderstorms...((It may not reeeally help her but it makes 𝘮𝘦 feel like I am helping soothe her)). I really can’t think of a downside to this app. Love it. We have the unlimited so any song is instantly there and available to download. Amazing. We did have just the reg FREE version for years bc I refused to buy the unlimited bc . . . It may be a few dollars but I just felt like WHY?! Tho, now having it the unlimited, I feel it is 𝙑𝙀𝙍𝙔 worth it. I am a music person so I wld have music playing 𝗅𝗈𝗎𝖽𝗅𝗒 in the house at alllll times if it didn’t drive the hubby nuts. My son is more like me so more n more we have music going and r having the best random dance parties! Still wish it was free/part of the Prime subscription but....maybe one day they will include it at the level of the unlimited!!

    I absolutely love it!! Never going back to spotify!! I love that while I'm in the car listening to music, I never have to be tempted to mess with my phone to change the song, because I can tell alexa to change it for me, like a song, skip to the next song, search for something specific, pause/play, etc. I can't express just how amazing it is 😍

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Terrible. It literally will pause, change songs, tell me I'm on the wrong profile when I'm not. We PAY for the family plan. Its so bad we are canceling it and going to spotify. Once you think the problem is gone it'll continue three times as much. Save your money or go to spotify. They don't have this issue. I don't do subscriptions and for this to continually be a problem. I'm over it.

    Was pretty good. Then they went to make it better and ruined it. The new version of the amazon music app does not allow playback of offline music sorted according to genre. This makes the app all but useless to me. I tried contacting customer service, but the response had nothing to do with my issue. I barely use amazon movies anymore, and now that I won't be using this app, I will probably not renew my Prime membership again.

    Fair price for quality of music, but the awful, unintuitive interface is driving me away. Aside from generally just looking like the app was designed 10 years ago, nothing works like you would expect. If an artist is in your library and you open their page through "library" and then want to listen to their other music (not saved in library), getting to their general artist account is cumbersome. Why not have one page for the artist with two sections, one for music in our library from that artist, and one section for the rest or all of the artist's music? The same page would open regardless of whether you navigate there through "find" or "library". On the now playing screen, why does tapping on the album artwork do nothing? This should either bring you to the album or the artist. When I'm viewing an artist page through "library", all of the songs are in one giant list. Why? If I have 12 albums saved by an artist and the one I want to listen to is at the bottom, I have to scroll through 100 songs to get to the album I want to listen to. Please have an option to have albums organized within an artist's page, so that you see an icon for each album, and then you see the songs for that album by clicking on the icon for a particular album (the way albums are organize if you open an artist page through "find"). "Recently Played" is my primary way of selecting music to play. Having a full-screen interface for "recently played", preferably with an option to have that interface on the home page, would be drastically better than the single row they have relegated this feature to under "library". Additionally, if I scroll through recently played, play something, and then go back, why does the position I scrolled to previously not get saved half of the time? When I click on the name of an album in the "recently played" list, why does it automatically start playing that album, especially from a track other than the first track of the album? It should open that album and show you a list of its tracks as it would if you clicked on it through an artist's account. Why is removing a downloaded album such a pain? If I press the download button on an album page, it downloads that album - pressing the button again should remove the download. There's not even an option to remove the album download in the 3 dot expanded menu for that album. You have to go to library--> Albums --> offline music only --> find the album within your entire library --> then the three dot menu for the album has an option to remove the download. This does not work if I have it set to online music? Why can you not do it from the same place you originally download the album from? Having Alexa take over 1/4 of the primary menu space at the bottom of the app is ridiculous. Sure, prompt users to use it once or twice - if they decline, leave it at that. This menu space should be used for Settings, recently played, dowloaded content, or even have it be a user-definable space. Shoving Alexa in someone's face doesn't make them want to use it. This service has promise, but it's such a pain to use that I'll probably go back to Tidal before my trial is even over. Please, please, make this app more intuitive, useful, and modern.

  • 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

  • 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.

    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.

  • Plenty of music, works well, could use a few more features May 4, 2019

    By Fulano2
    Th app works well. There is plenty of music selection with the paid subscription. I do like that I can pause and play the current song from anywhere in the app with the fixed play button at the bottom. Songs are easy to find. It makes good recommendations on new songs to listen to. I like that I can have multiple playlists for the family. It shows lyrics for many songs. There is a setting for disabling explicit songs which I haven’t tested well (maybe my kids). I don’t know how well the filter works. Here is what wish it did better. I would like to be able to not just pause and play the current song I am listening too but be able to easily navigate to the screen that has the forward/backward skip button. I like to restart a song over if I already stated it and I come back later and want to restart it WITHOUT losing my position in my current play list. That is the mai drawback.

  • 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.

  • Great, but not always Jan 24, 2020

    By SaViSe
    I love this app. For the most part. The available selection of music is HUGE, although there are some artists and/or albums I wish were available with out paying for Music Unlimited (I’m looking at you, Led Zeppelin!). I was EXTREMELY excited to see the new update, which added volume normalizing, which was easily my biggest complaint, since shuffling music meant constantly adjusting my phone/car’s volume from song to song. What I didn’t realize, however, was that I was going to have to re-download EVERY SINGLE SONG on my phone. I have about 7000 songs downloaded. I’m in the middle of my second day of re-downloading. It’s excruciatingly slow, even with a very fast connection, and, unless you leave the app open, constantly gets hung up or frozen, meaning you have to restart the downloads (you don’t lose what you’ve already done, thank god!). Overall, a pretty good app for music lovers, and it would probably be great if I just started using it, but there are definitely some issues, some of which could have been solved, or at least forgiven, simply by letting people know what was going on.

  • Improve shuffle! Nov 24, 2019

    By kelsarro
    Overall the app is decent. I have been able to discover a lot of new artists and songs that I enjoy from the artist radios and suggestions. Here are my cons: Artist radios.. I have avoided thumbs-upping any songs that I like. I have found that when I do, it will play those songs that I thumbs-upped first every single time I play that particular radio. I guess that’s the point but I end up hating the song because it becomes way overplayed. Which is kind of how Pandora’s radio is. It’s just annoying. So don’t thumbs up anything unless you want to eventually hate it. Shuffle on My Music.. needs some improvement. It seems like the algorithm needs work or something because it will shuffle and play THE SAME SONGS and then there are songs that I will never ever hear. I end up removing songs from My Music just because the shuffle seems to love playing it. I end up letting it play alphabetically just so I can hear my other songs. That’s terrible! Also, I have noticed that the shuffle will turn off by itself if I am connecting Bluetooth. That might be unavoidable but I thought I would mention that.

    The music collection is extensive, but search is rudimentary to put it politely. Organization is extremely poor as well. For instance, you can't group your saved music grouped into artists ->albums, which is the most logical organization. When you're looking at All Albums of an artist, there's no way to separate the full albums from singles or list them chronologically. There's no artist info. Artist/album names aren't clickable. No songwriter info for each song.

Once you think the problem is gone it'll continue three times as much. Save your money or go to spotify. They don't have this issue. I don't do subscriptions and for this to continually be a problem. I'm over it.

    Was pretty good. Then they went to make it better and ruined it. The new version of the amazon music app does not allow playback of offline music sorted according to genre. This makes the app all but useless to me. I tried contacting customer service, but the response had nothing to do with my issue. I barely use amazon movies anymore, and now that I won't be using this app, I will probably not renew my Prime membership again.

    Fair price for quality of music, but the awful, unintuitive interface is driving me away. Aside from generally just looking like the app was designed 10 years ago, nothing works like you would expect. If an artist is in your library and you open their page through "library" and then want to listen to their other music (not saved in library), getting to their general artist account is cumbersome. Why not have one page for the artist with two sections, one for music in our library from that artist, and one section for the rest or all of the artist's music? The same page would open regardless of whether you navigate there through "find" or "library". On the now playing screen, why does tapping on the album artwork do nothing? This should either bring you to the album or the artist. When I'm viewing an artist page through "library", all of the songs are in one giant list. Why? If I have 12 albums saved by an artist and the one I want to listen to is at the bottom, I have to scroll through 100 songs to get to the album I want to listen to. Please have an option to have albums organized within an artist's page, so that you see an icon for each album, and then you see the songs for that album by clicking on the icon for a particular album (the way albums are organize if you open an artist page through "find"). "Recently Played" is my primary way of selecting music to play. Having a full-screen interface for "recently played", preferably with an option to have that interface on the home page, would be drastically better than the single row they have relegated this feature to under "library". Additionally, if I scroll through recently played, play something, and then go back, why does the position I scrolled to previously not get saved half of the time? When I click on the name of an album in the "recently played" list, why does it automatically start playing that album, especially from a track other than the first track of the album? It should open that album and show you a list of its tracks as it would if you clicked on it through an artist's account. Why is removing a downloaded album such a pain? If I press the download button on an album page, it downloads that album - pressing the button again should remove the download. There's not even an option to remove the album download in the 3 dot expanded menu for that album. You have to go to library--> Albums --> offline music only --> find the album within your entire library --> then the three dot menu for the album has an option to remove the download. This does not work if I have it set to online music? Why can you not do it from the same place you originally download the album from? Having Alexa take over 1/4 of the primary menu space at the bottom of the app is ridiculous. Sure, prompt users to use it once or twice - if they decline, leave it at that. This menu space should be used for Settings, recently played, dowloaded content, or even have it be a user-definable space. Shoving Alexa in someone's face doesn't make them want to use it. This service has promise, but it's such a pain to use that I'll probably go back to Tidal before my trial is even over. Please, please, make this app more intuitive, useful, and modern.

  • 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

    Absolutely sick of all the bugs. It randomly stops playing my music and then won't let me play at anything at all and I have to exit the app close it restarted and hopefully it'll let me play it. Sometimes I have to go through 4 or 5 times before it lets me play the music that I own. Just randomly it completely stops playing the song and then locks up and I can't do anything.
