Bad UI 2/5
Removing a song off my device is very difficult. I once thought I was removing a song, instead I deleted it off my Amazon library. Now I can't find the song anywhere, in my account online or my device. This is a song I paid for. Why would you design that to be the easier to access function? All I wanted to do was manage storage on my phone.
And how hard is it to have top level option that allows me to play only songs downloaded to my device (with all the usual sort filters)?
Cant Search music anymore 3/5
By Zombie dudez
For some reason ever since the update, I have been unable to search music. This is bery frustrating when Im trying to listen to music not in my playlist.
Drops Bluetooth connections 1/5
This app drops Bluetooth connections to wireless speakers. Thus it is worthless.
Value of Amazon 5/5
Worth every penny, you want your music , it's there just ask.
Decent :/ 3/5
Love all the features except for one major thing. The inability to adjust bass. This player makes music sound pretty weak compared to iTunes with its bass booster setting. Adding a bass booster to amazons player would probably turn it into a 5 star player. Needless to say, I don’t listen to my amazon prime music often on my mobile device, but great to listen to at home with my surround sound.
Lacks Chromecast Audio support 👎 2/5
Thought I’d give Amazon Music a try but it unfortunately does not support streaming to Chromecast Audio so I can’t really use it at home. Will probably go back to Pandora which works well.
So awesome 5/5
By BSW Dallas
Songs gone 2/5
All playlists created for work disappeared after last update. Why? Hours of songs for the aqua aerobics classes I teach are gone. Very disappointed...
Turn off the TV get back to Music 5/5
We’ve been Prime Members since day one. Only last summer did we find Prime Music (PM). Because we didn’t know Prime Music existed we’ve been satisfied with the playlists Pandora and XM dished out to us on our cars and Bluetooth speakers.
Discovered PM while on a rainy vacation at our cottage. We used an Echo we got for Christmas. Over the week discovered you can play full albums. I’m a classic rock fan. Most of my record collection was sold or given to my kids at college. Back home we subscribed to PM+ and restored my vintage audio gear. Ive got an iPad dedicated to only this system, set to hq stream, unlimited buffer. Run the output through the headphone jack for some improvement over BT. The quality is almost CD
Now instead of watching TV we’ve been listening to the soundtrack of our youth and discovering other artists from the golden age of rock.
Moving to the top 5/5
By Smilin' Snake
Amazon continues to offer the best in video and music with a "worth every penny" PRIME MEMBERSHIP, not to mention the shopping...Beautiful interface with mobile apps in iOS!
Added the unlimited music-excellent with much better UI than iTunes or Music. I’m in 100.
I’m confused 3/5
By Bee jakes
I loved this app for the longest time but now it says I can only play certain songs on Echo dot and not listen to it? I would really like this problem fixed or explained.
it is ok but have pay for most songs i like
Shrinking choices 3/5
By Ronin Acreage
Every day more and more artists are being removed. Many of my favorites have been placed in the Unlimited section and are no longer accessible in my Prime membership
Just Awesome 5/5
The best, I even have my neighbors asking where I get my playlist.
After a month 5/5
Still, really enjoying this. It's pretty easy to use and has a great selection
LOVE Amazon prime music! Except 1 annoying thing. 4/5
I love everything about amazon prime music! The majority of the songs that I search for to download are available. It's just very annoying on the occasion that it shows you when a song is available.. only if you pay the additional membership fee amount for amazon prime music unlimited.
Great app 5/5
Wish they had a more diverse library; however, it is still in its infancy. Therefore, I will be more lenient.
Great features such as providing the lyrics to many songs (even some obscure ones).
As Borat would say, "vEry Niiiice"
Missing features 2/5
I love that there is voice control. But before I can switch from Spotify to Unlimited, I need to be able to select Echos and Sonos speakers from the app. I am listening to music on my phone and then I want to switch it to a speaker. I can't believe Amazon doesn't have this feature. I want to use the app to control music on my speakers, so I don't have to voice control everything.
ITS GREAT 5/5
I LOVE IT
Why so slow to download? 1/5
It’s ridiculous that it takes over an hour to download an album.
Switch to Spotify!! 1/5
I don’t want the Alexa functionality shoved down my throat while I’m using a “music streaming” app. Give me the ability to remove the annoying Alexa button from the bottom to replace it with something I will ACTUALLY use like the search button!!!
Great app Great music 5/5
Love this app! Great selection of music!
No Apple watch app! 1/5
By El Oaxaquito
Great music selection, but when is an apple watch app coming. Apple music is better for Apple watch owners. You can't stream, download, or even play music from your watch with Amazon music. If you are going to pay money for music streaming, you might as well do apple music.
Love it but 4/5
I love the app but sometimes sinxe ive updated my iOS the music wont play sometimes and i have to restart the app. Is it just my device or is it a bug?
Lots of work to do 3/5
By Brandon Lourenzo
Am I the only one that feels like Amazon should stop focusing on compatibility with Alexa and focus on key components of what a paid-for music app should provide???
I made the switch from Spotify because I was able to save a few bucks. I have mixed reviews so far after paying for Spotify Premium the past few years.
- Need to provide the ability to search within a playlist.
- Also need to provide the ability to sort playlists. I consistently listen to a playlist with 2.7k + songs... It's nearly impossible to find a specific song in current state.
- Add column / option to sort by Date Added.
- The app / desktop version is pretty slow. Downloaded playlists should play / shuffle instantly... That's part of why you would download a playlist in the first place.
- The fact that you can't add more songs to a playlist on your phone after the playlist hits a certain number songs is just weird...
- They said they fixed the looping issue when connecting via Bluetooth to your car, but I don't think that's correct. I still experience all the time. To be fair, this was an issue with Spotify as well when I left them.
- When searching for an artist and viewing one of their albums, when you press back, it takes you back to the start screen. Very annoying...
- Fast forward and Rewind don't currently work with my car's Bluetooth controls. Not sure if this issue is on my car or on Amazon, however, I can say that these controls do work with the Spotify app...
I think Amazon will eventually improve and get it right, they're fairly new to this but have the resources available to improve. They've got a long way to go, however!
Love it 5/5
By Suber girl
I love using this app for music
No ad interruptions like Pandora..
Disappointed in the direction this service is heading 2/5
I agree with many comments on here; there have been some bad changes across the updates with this app, specifically in the offline and online modes, and primarily with the loss of the in-app purchasing function.
You see, the download function, available both in standard Prime and Unlimited Music subscriptions, enables the function of the offline mode, where one has access to purchased and borrowed music regardless of internet connection. I’m talking about music purchased, owned and stored on your phone from iTunes and from the Amazon Music store. The online mode, however, only displays music added to one’s My Music folder within the Amazon Music app.
There was a golden era when online-mode displayed our purchased and stored music from iTunes, among those purchased or borrowed from the Amazon Music subscription and store in this app. This feature was unique and truly special because it qualified this app as an amazing supplement to the music I already owned and stored on my phone. As a consumer, this is important to me. If I’m going to spend money on music, it will be to own the music so that I can listen to it offline, and skip songs as much I want. There was a time when this app’s online mode was special because it augmented the ad-less and unlimited-skipping reality missing from other music services.
I have to tell you, across the years, it is this type of online mode that allowed me to prefer the Amazon Prime music service above all the rest: Pandora, Samsung’s Milk app, Spotify standard, YouTube, and sheer owned-music alone. This was true a gem to Amazon Prime. Please, Amazon Music developers, make our purchased and owned music accessible in the online mode again too.
Lastly, why did you remove Amazon Music store from the app? I loved that I could add Prime-music to My Music, and that I could sample your music before buying it. For example, at the genesis of the Unlimited Music subscription, one could add music available on Prime to My Music, one could buy the songs unavailable in Prime though available for purchase in the store, or one could access all of that music freely for a monthly subscription to Unlimited Music.
I loved having all three options in the app. I respected you, Amazon Music, when you combined the music files we own among the music you lent, in an app with an Amazon Music Store, or a monthly music subscription that is identical to other music apps. I liked when you stood out; when I considered you a real competitor against Spotify- who, unlike you, has refined algorithms to predict music that users will like.
I just feel like you’re pursuing something that is already-dominated, and in the process , you are leaving behind what truly makes you special.
Idk. Just bring back the store, and merge our music files to the online mode, already. Just fix this, and reconsider what type of music service you want to be, perhaps by thinking of what type of music service the people need.
It’s good, design needs work 3/5
By Jamie Reese
It’s a really good app, but compared to Spotify and Apple Music the design is lacking hierarchy and feels dated. It’s very messy, there times I get sick in loops going through the artists and albums and back again. It needs to be simplified and at least have a light theme option.
So much better than iTunes! 5/5
I love Amazon for so many reasons, but especially like Amazon music b/c when you play it, it will go basically all day; whereas iTunes keeps asking you if you're still listening! Uh...yeah...that's why my music 's still on...!
Nice. Really nice. 4/5
Good listening, I like it almost as much as Tune In app that gives more content like CNN and local stations.
Alexa "button" removed 3/5
Alexa "button" removed
Amazon is the BEST!!! 5/5
Recommend to all!
Variety and no commercials 5/5
I love this app! Completely switched from Pandora due to large variety, no commercials, and ability to download my favorites!
Why are my songs undownloading?! 3/5
By The edits wizard
Okay so here’s the deal I have 103 songs on my plain old offline playlist and every time I get out of the app for a long period of time I end up with 88 songs on that said playlist, all my other playlists are fin (Disney and Christmas) but that one plain playlist, so redownload those 14 songs and add them to my music and to my playlist then I stop playing my music for a few hours I go back into the app and those same 14 songs are undownloaded once again, and it seems to be the best songs on that playlist so that jut makes it all the more frustrating. This app is really great but I think you guys really need to reevaluate the functionality of your offline mode because from the other reviews I read it seems to have a lot of problems
No Apple Watch or TVOS apps. 3/5
In order to get the most out of my Amazon music subscription, I really need a version that will run on my watch over cellular. A TvOS version would also be nice to have.
Pretty Good 4/5
My only problem was, before you had to have Prime to get specific bands, and songs.
Highly recommend. I just listen to classical and having those albums be included with Prime beats paying $10 for Apple Music for the same stuff
No family friendly setting 3/5
By Dr. Steff
I like amazon music, but like most tech stuff it seems to be designed by people without kids. I can’t listen to a station because there’s no way to set it up to filter out explicit content. I understand there are people who want to hear that, but amazon does NOT seem to recognize that I don’t want to hear it. At least have a filter option so that only the radio friendly versions of songs come up. It’s a pretty simple thing. My husband put on amazon music at my birthday party and we had to turn it off and switch to a playlist because of the embarrassing amount of profanity. Seriously, we can’t be the only parents who don’t want our kids listening f bombs but want to hear good radio quality music.
App Update 3/5
Since latest app update have nothing but problems . Alexa not working , many songs in library greyed out and unable to redownload . Playlists from Apple Music no later play and my personal library no longer available . Was great now not so much .
Love my Amazon music!
It is okay 3/5
I love it but it is so annoying because most of the music is on my iPhone and then it wants you to get the other apps so it takes the music and moves it to the other apps and you have to buy the other apps to play the music 😡😤It's SO ANNOYING!!!!!!!
Better than iTunes 5/5
I love this program. I have a amazon fire 5, and used this on that device for a while, after switching from iTunes. I have been amazed with this program. One of the best things about this is that, unlike iTunes, you can get this program on any operating system. I can keep all my music on one program for all of my devices. Amazon Music unlimited is out for $10 a month ($8 is you have prime), and stations are also available. I don’t believe that iTunes has anything that this application doesn’t. Alexa is also available in the app.
Love this app, although... 5/5
By K-pop fan🤩
This is definitely one of the best music apps I’ve ever used, but for people who like foreign music like me, are disappointed to see that it’s very limited. I love Korean music, and if u search up famous Kpop groups you’ll see groups like GOT7, Exo, Blackpink, Red Velvet, and a lot more groups. Also, I’d like for there to be newer and more popular Korean albums for example Twice needs an album/song update, and so does Big Bang, etc. I love it, but that’s my only issue with it. And there’s a lot more groups than that. 😕
I’m very satisfied with it, but K-pop lovers will get bothered by that.
Great value 4/5
It's a part of the Amazon Prime service.
A "no signal" option would be great. When cell tower signal is dropped program is useless. Bigger buttons and a simple search interface is needed for cell phones.
Dangerous to use if driving.
Hard to see what you're doing if searching for a song.
Overall decent but much room for improvement 3/5
Amazon Music does the necessary: allowing for making playlists, downloading songs and albums, streaming music, shuffling, and skipping for free.
However, there are flaws and areas which could be improved, such as:
-even in offline mode, if the phone is on airplane mode there is a pop-up notifying us to turn on wi-fi to access streaming
-some songs are unplayable on occasion
Features that would be appreciated but aren’t necessary:
-ability to move multiple songs to a playlist or out of a play queue at the same time
-tally of minutes spent listening to music on a device in a year
-tally of artists listened to on a device in a year
-tally of genres listened to on a device in a year
-list of top songs listened to in a year
-list of top artists listened to in a year
-list of top genres listened to in a year
-ability to remove a song from being suggested to you in streaming
Overall, the app is decent and usable, and it has some nice features lacking in some other music applications, however, the deficit is more grand than the surplus.
I keep losing music to Amazon Unlimited! 3/5
For the most part, it’s a good app and getting better all the time. It only gets three stars from me because there aren’t enough alternative music/artist offerings, and it seems the little that has been offered keeps being removed and made available only through Amazon Unlimited - wrecking havoc on my playlists. I’m paying for Prime already, why do I need to pay more for Unlimited to get those songs back?
What a selection 5/5
Wow. The music selection is owning your own music store.
Good but needs work 4/5
By i like KU
I think that this app is good.But on off online mode you don’t get all the songs you like.so then you have to downlode all the songs you like.i agree with you all but it seems like you guys don’t like the app. I love the app it’s the best I love it!
Great selection!! No shuffle that actually works though. 4/5
The shuffle feature on my playlist doesn’t actually shuffle it plays a random song then plays them in order from then on if this was fixed 5 star app!!
love this app but the update goofed it up 2/5
whenever u search for stuff it will take forever to load, i know it's not my wifi because it doesn't load on anything
