Good but the interface lacks 4/5
I’ve had it for 2 months. It has a good selection of music (mostly jazz & classical & latin on my playlists). But would like access to the sleep timer and to an equalizer on every page. It’s a pain to access the timer through a bunch of clicks & the eq through my ipod x’s Music menu. Also would like an ez access suggestion page for more obscure but great titles that don’t appear. Also it would be helpful to have a sound quality rating on selections. Would forego some recordings where the sound is less than greAt.
Some good music a lot that isn’t and more you have to pay for 2/5
I pay over $100 a year for Amazon which includes the music why do I have to pay extra for other music that I may like and they know it but they want to just charge me for it I don’t like that and the way things are going I may cancel them all together!
Good but could use work 4/5
With some songs on Amazon music it will start glitching and make this weird static sound. There is also one that will switch to a different random song. But what I do love about this app is it is very 😊
Crash Happy 1/5
By JOHN Q PUBLIC 12041979
The app just won’t stop crashing
Latest update 2/5
Ever since the latest update I cannot get any of my music to play; even when I’m on WiFi. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app, I’ve restarted the app and no change.
No problems after a year. Just needs to work with Siri.
It’s “Ok” 2/5
I personally love anything Amazon, the only thing is about this Amazon app is... UNLIMITED SUBSCRIPTION. EVERYTIME I wanna listen to something that is on this playlist called “my favorites” the next day it goes to unlimited. VERY annoying. I always ask my mom to get unlimited she says no... I LOVE MUSIC AND I JUST RLLY WANT TO LISTEN TO MY FAVORITES.... PLEASE FIX THIS IM BEGGING U...

Horrible upkeep 1/5
Good app, but your crashes are getting annoying. Fix it.
Amazingly easy to use 5/5
Great streaming service. Highly recommend. Tablet app easiest to use vs Apple TV version. And definitely like the ability to choose ultra high def selections.
Amazon music 1/5
By Ups man 31
Plays the same music every time I log on . Should have more free music to listen to. Lately it has been screeching and buffering .
I love Amazon music! 5/5
By excellent cook
I listen to Amazon music everyday! Makes my day! Thank you!
This company in whole are racist 1/5
I won’t use anything Amazon anymore the racist putting Black people in a category for themselves as if they don’t have a freaking brand that they can use to choose what they want horrible horrible just like during the time of separation were black and white people could mingle now Amazon is doing the same thing really wow.
I constantly randomly hear a scuffling sound when I play music or It crashes. Sometimes it plays another song in the middle of whatever current song I’m listening to. I am about to just delete the app because at this point I am getting paranoid that someone is trying to hack my phone through the app
Pretty good 5/5
Like the app but most of the songs I like are kinda like they’re blocked but not really it wants you to go to Amazon premium or something but other than that I like the app have been using it for years
Best music app 5/5
I still don’t like the idea that I pay $100 a year for Amazon prime and then in order to get the music I want they offer it for free and then slowly but surely tell me the music that I like is no longer available unless I pay an extra $10 monthly. That sounds like extortion.
Sound quality dropped significantly 2/5
As soon as Amazon offered its more expensive option, the regular old Prime Music dropped in sound quality significantly. Now it’s scratchy.
The songs won’t load in 1/5
Every time I try to listen to music the song just suddenly stops and I get back on the app to find that the app has restarted. I don’t know why it does this but what I do know it that it won’t do it with songs I have saved to my playlist from awhile ago. If I add anything else to my playlist it isn’t even going to last a full minute.
Songs are stopping 2/5
Songs are stopping often and seemingly at random in iPhone app
Could be just slightly better 4/5
Just a few minor tweaks
Love it 5/5
By hello kidsa
I like Amazon a lot
I definitely recommend this. I like how you get to do play list and download songs!
Just get Spotify. 2/5
By 🐸 (Frog)
Okay, the title says it all. I gave this app a shot because I have Prime and figured why pay extra for Spotify. Then I realized Amazon Music Unlimited is extra, and as a university student I get a discount on Spotify or Apple Music. I mainly keep this app around because I know a few people who use Amazon Music, and it’s convenient to be able to open links they send instead of having to look in Spotify for the songs. However, today I got a message saying “Cannot start playback: unauthorized device modifications detected”. I have no modifications, I am however running iOS 14.4 Beta 2. So to sum it up, Unlimited costs extra, it doesn’t work on iOS public beta, and the UI looks like it’s from 2012. There’s far better services out there.
I love Amazon Music. 5/5
By slow echo
I have always loved Amazon, and now I love Amazon music. It’s fantastic! I was only listening to Apple Music, but have switched to Amazon. If you’re a prime member, you can play just about any music you can think of, and Amazon will help you find more. Hey people, plug into Amazon!
I am no able to purchase unlimited. Been thru all the trouble shooting steps and even tried different cards in my account and still nothing🤷♂️
Getting worse over time 2/5
Every update makes it worse. Additionally, it glitches constantly, randomly shutting down, especially when I am driving. I usually get in my truck, connect my phone, then start some music. I then pull out of the driveway. After a few moments of driving, the app will suddenly shut down. This is a very annoying problem because I don’t like looking down at my phone while I am driving.
Also, Amazon music seems to think I like listening to the same 20 songs over and over again. When I play “my soundtrack” or shuffle all of my songs, it makes sure to play me the same 20 songs first, before it adds in any new songs. I like hearing new songs and amazon is pretty terrible at shuffling it up. I will soon be switching to Apple Music, which is far superior in my opinion.
This is probably my fourth written review, every time I write one it gets worse and I feel the urge to write another. And it keeps asking me to rate it again on the app. Quit asking me to rate you!!
Great but a bummer 3 3/4 stars 1/5
I've used Amazon Music for several years. I absolutely loved 89%of it. No commercials! So much music to choose from! You can listen to albums, just the song, or the station. Although unlike Pandora you can not make any station. you are limited but there are a large amount to choose from. If they don't have the artist you desire for a station they give recommendations based on your likes. Now that Amazon unlimited has gone into affect I have noticed some songs I use to have access to is now only available if I purchase Amazon unlimited. I have kept my Amazon prime for so many years mainly for the music, 2 day shipping is great, the music though I utilize every single day unless I'm out of cell tower range. I find myself starting to use pandora again. Although I can't stand the commercials (maybe I'll subscribe). In our house we have one who is subscribed to pandora and to be honest, there is a larger variety in songs compared to Amazon music. Maybe it will be more comparable if I took the unlimited route. Good luck!
Update- I went unlimited and for awhile really liked it but now I’m noticing that it WILL NOT WORK when I’m using cell data vs wifi. This has been new and I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app but it hasn’t seemed to solve the problem. Not happy with this and now considering to stop Amazon music all together.
Love it!!! 5/5
I love this music app, far more then the others. Having Alexa on there, is an added bonus.
App Issues 1/5
App keeps crashing.
Two problems 3/5
This app would be much better if it had a improved way of organizing playlists. Folders would be extremely helpful.
Also, as many have said before the auto-stop feature is THE issue. I understand Amazon doesn’t want to be paying artists for played songs someone isn’t listening to (the amount is practically nothing btw) but the timer they use needs to be way longer. I have playlists that go far longer than 1 hr so there’s no need for me to go into the app during this time. This doesn’t mean I’m not listening! Make it 2hrs plus and I’d be happy as would many others I imagine.
Music skips and makes weird noise 3/5
Lately my songs are skipping and then there are other times that it sounds for several seconds out of nowhere that sounds like someone is scratching a record player, like a remix or something
Amazon, Censorship, and the Chinese Communist Party 1/5
By Amazon and the CCP
I refuse to do business with Amazon after the company began engaging in unfair censorship of American citizens. The irony is that Amazon has no problem selling products made by slaves in concentration camps run by the Chinese Communist Party. I will not be guilty of doing business with a company that punishes American citizens while it empowers an evil government that is engaging in genocide. For Amazon, Communist China is where they make their profit. I will always speak out against this evil partnership whenever and wherever I can, and the cowards who try to shut me up about it will not win in the end.
Best music 5/5
This is better than anything it helps me fall asleep and takes away stress.😉
Bad subscription 2/5
By chuck b chillin
One device for this cost? Buy all these echos but you can’t used them unless you upgrade...
Crashes more than a crash test dummy 2/5
Installed on a iPhone 11 and crashes every day. It will be playing and mid-song it just cuts out. The app then has to be rebooted.
Amazon music 5/5
By tiger bobby
Very functional, easy to utilize
App needs to update 2/5
I play a song and a different song was singing
What I need 5/5
Easy to use. Has a wide library. Classic rock lives on!!
Buggy app, doesn’t buffer properly, so lots of skips 1/5
012020221 Update, still buggy, playlists won’t even launch. App locks up
constantly... Giving up
Upgraded to Ultra HD, but even with a solid wifi or 5 bars of real 5G connection on the new iPhone 12 pro it skips during songs continuously.
Every time the app is launched the first 2 to 4 stations that we try to launch always show an error message:
Sorry, something went wrong.
Please try again later.
[ Ok ]”
Takes 3-4 tries to get a Station to start playing. Well, it’s not [Ok], It’s really a quite annoying!!
Then, when I upgraded to a “family account” so I could listen on multiple devices simultaneously Amazon took away my Ultra HD service!!
But I haven’t had the time to try to find the magic sequence to talk or text with a live person to complain about the downgrade in sounds quality because it’s such a huge pita to contact Amazon Music’s customer service.
It took me three weeks to achieve the account type from an individual plan to a family plan, I couldn’t even tell you how I finally connected to someone to make it happen.
But like I said, they downgraded the sound quality to “Standard”, I can no longer see HD or Ultra HD musical offerings...
The Ultra HD is kinda nice, for 15-20 seconds at a time before it buffer overloads and the song scratches and skips.
The Standard streaming is much less dynamic, but at least the songs generally play all the way through without glitching.
If Amazon gave my back my Ultra HD service that I started with, and increased their buffer space by a factor of 10x, then it might be usable.
About to go back to Pandora and Spotify
I like that it’s unlimited skip but when I have a song on it cuts off and has some sort of static and have to restart the app every single time. It happens way too often to give it more than 3 stars. If it wasn’t for my husband wanting this app, I would move on with another.
Too expensive 1/5
By Dan Binto
This is way too expensive! You should lower the amount of money you have to play to use this app.
More variety 3/5
Needs more music station variety
Station Song Selection 3/5
I chose 3 stars due to the repetitive songs that play along with the different stations I choose.
It’s a jungle/most confusing player on the market 2/5
Clearly amazon has put minimum effort into this but they now offer a plus/premium. Lol.
And endless maze trying to get to what you want.
If it wasn’t such a pain I’d go back to ripping my files to iTunes.
“Unavailable songs” 2/5
Made up a playlist of songs; to date, over 25% of the playlist is no longer available, but can become so if I pay more. Rubbish.
