Great app

Misused
Gets worse with every update
by Ron750 on 2020/09/25 00:47
This app gets more confusing, with less useful features, with every update. Many songs disappear as they get switched to Music Unlimited. And they don’t notify you that’s happening they just disappear. Or disappear for no reason. This last update is the worst. For years it was called My Music, than they change it to Library, but don’t explain that. They change the way you do things like switch to offline, but there’s no improvement, just change for no reason. Keep it simple stupid!

I like the app I do not like that they keep taking off music from prime
Nice Work
by Phoenician Boomer on 2020/09/25 00:27
Portia I’m thoroughly enjoying Amazon music I just set it up on my iPad and you can browse create your own playlist.AmazonPrime is the way to go. Even before the pandemic, free shipping plus Amazon music plus prime videos for a very -$14.99 I signed up. No regrets. But even if all you get is a music it’s cool.
Amazing music library
by Harlemom on 2020/09/24 23:36
Easy to use and has pretty much any song or artist you’re looking for, even the NOW CD you liked in middle school.

Bad performance on iPadOS 14
by uuujf on 2020/09/24 20:27
Can you please update the app for iPadOS 14? The current version is super buggy.
Update issue
by Uevfhxhfndjcjdn on 2020/09/24 20:24
I have the new iOS 14. whenever I receive a phone call I can not control Amazon music at all. I have to open the app and select a new station or playlist. Very annoying hopefully it is fixed soon
Music
by Australian Sheperd on 2020/09/24 19:32
I love the fact you can find pet much any music you want no matter how old the songs are or how new they are. Any variety and the price is incredible!! Unlike other apps where you get commercials here you don’t. If you don’t have this app you should definitely get it. Trust me you won’t regret it!!!! 🎼🎹
Bad update
by My sis loves this on 2020/09/24 19:23
App barely works anymore? Whole playing bar went away and in order to stop playing a song you have to close the entire app. Like are you serious ?? It doesn’t even show what’s playing from lock screen , app itself, or in control center . Don’t understand what i’m even paying for
Bad update
by Sb😡😡😡 on 2020/09/24 19:19
I keep having to force close it which is super inconvenient when I’m hooked to Bluetooth and can’t use my phone to pause or change music or stop it when I get unhooked to Bluetooth like opening a car door stop my stereo but my phone keeps playing like it’s not supposed to.
Please fix the bug!!
by 1Rahulkb on 2020/09/24 19:19
Whenever I connect it to apple CarPlay and use Siri, it somehow looses the radio station and whenever I try pausing or using the controls, it stops working until I restart the app
Love the “working” app features
by Berubea5 on 2020/09/24 18:51
I do love using the app when it’s running. I have used multiple phones, even the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and still the app closes randomly on me. Sometimes it remembers the song, at least form the beginning. Sometimes it doesn’t. Please fix app shut downs. The point of a playlist is to not mess with your phone while you drive. 🤦‍♀️
App shuts down
by ttcc123487 on 2020/09/24 16:56
Love the fact there is plenty of music to stream-however the app seems to shut down a lot when connected to my vehicle.
Save your time and your money
by Boston 9/2020 on 2020/09/24 16:52
It is a useless app. Very hit or miss if it works, does not play nonstop, asking every hour”still listening ? Waste of time
Meh..
by Slime-boy229 on 2020/09/24 16:38
I love it but why is it that I have amazon PRIME on my amazon shopping app but on this platform (amazon music) I don’t? I use the same account so...WHY?

No Casting to Google
by rlo123 on 2020/09/24 15:29
Come on guys, why ruin an otherwise perfect service by not including the ability to cast to Google speakers. Childish. Bad business decision. Deal breaker.
Not working properly
by Hzeller001 on 2020/09/24 15:26
Idk what’s going on with the app, it’s updated according to the app, but it’s not viewing the current playing song, doesn’t work like it use to
Paying for music
by Messy0704 on 2020/09/24 14:47
I think if a person is subscribed to amazon music then we should be able to listen and source ALL available songs and no be required to listen on a device.
Awesome
by Weeziy on 2020/09/24 14:01
I like that I am able to listen to new releases and any artist without any interruptions. I am also able to make playlist for my kids. Great for traveling!! Oh, and it gets me through my work day!!!
Quality decrease
by GrazyNicole on 2020/09/24 13:33
There’s been a stark decrease in quality recently. The bugs are enough to make me considering switching to a different music app, something I haven’t considered in years. My music now frequently stops playing out of nowhere and the song playing is no longer viewable from the lock screen or by swiping up. Please fix the problems.
Great app
by Mikee57 on 2020/09/24 13:28
Great app with no commercials! But wish you could turn off the offers to pay/ month or completely filter out music you have to pay extra for.
Freezes up
by Joey Flint on 2020/09/24 13:02
This app is great and there are a LOT of great songs, however recently I’ve run into some problems where I listen to some 10 songs and the controls freeze up. I can’t skip, pause, or start where I left off. I end up resetting the app and it gets really annoying. If Amazon can fix this issue then this app would be perfect
Okay when it works
by POND3R on 2020/09/24 12:57
After installing the new iOS 14 update, there seems to be even more glitches. I listen to Amazon music daily and noticed that if it’s playing, and I receive or make a phone call, I lose all control of my music. The play button doesn’t work on the phone or my watch, the skip buttons quit working, and it makes me kill the app and restart before I regain the correct controls. On top of having to pay more than what I’m already paying for to get all the music they offer, this app is ok at best
Ruined the app
by Lucky itself h hip on 2020/09/24 12:39
Got rid of many of my favorite songs
A few bugs
by Kechalk3 on 2020/09/24 12:36
I love the app but there are a few bugs that need to be fixed. If I am listening on my phone sometimes my music stops playing. When I open my phone to fix it it is like the app restarted on its own. This issue has been more recently but sometimes when I go back to my app to skip a song, the display at the bottom has disappeared so it doesn’t even show what song is playing. The only way I can fix the display to show is to restart my app but then I have to restart the playlist. If these issues can be fixed the app would be perfect!
Crashes often
by RocketMsn75 on 2020/09/24 12:03
Love Amazon muscle integration across the family but this app crashes often and is very flaky with Apple CarPlay.
Getting too complex
by Capable User, TYVM on 2020/09/24 11:42
It used to be much more intuitive and straight forward. But updates upon updates have made it more and more convoluted, requiring too many clicks and scrolls to get to functions. For example, navigating to See All Playlists of a very specific Genre is tedious. The app no longer restarts there. Common use buttons are moved or gone. WHY?!
Recording
by Fortyninehike on 2020/09/24 10:38
It works most of time, but the mic is working ALL the time. Amazon, mic should only be activated when using Alexa!
Great app
by ocrmom70 on 2020/09/24 09:54
I can listen to it even more when I’m in the mood for quiet time. Station I can’t located on laptop easier to find

Keeps playing after CarPlay disconnects
😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃
by itsrewindtime on 2020/09/24 04:53
I got this app because I previously had Prime, which made it easier to get a bunch of songs for less money. (Although I still have to buy some songs.) Recently, they added this feature where the songs you liked on a radio station would show up in a playlist. I can’t tell you how much I do not like this playlist. I have a specific number of playlists and this sort of ruined it. Like, just make it a playlist you can follow or something. Another problem I have is the radio stations. I don’t like how you can’t save a radio station so you can easily find it later. Another newly added feature that annoys me is when a song I recently got with Prime switches to Unlimited, I can’t just delete it off my playlist. I feel like an easier way to fix that would be to let you play the song you had before until you delete it. That would make things easier.
Great selection
by donnamiup on 2020/09/24 04:27
I have looked at other music services, I was surprised to see that Amazon’s catalog carried much of the obscure music that I have been looking for! I love the selection there has been only one song I couldn’t find so far!
Great music
by Pepper #1 on 2020/09/24 03:18
I certainly enjoy listening to music at night to relax from the day. Especially being able to have a variety of music from country, jazz , pop, or even hard rock,
New issue
by jkjk2355 on 2020/09/24 01:53
I'm a big fan of Amazon music but noticed with recent updates that if a playlist is playing and another app interrupts (such as a message notification) the playlist continues actually playing music but the controls showing the song playing, skip, pause, etc are no longer available. You have to close the app, reopen and restart the playlist. It's very inconvenient while driving. It worked great up until ~a week ago or so

Glitchy after iOS 14 update
by Jacebanty on 2020/09/23 23:16
Just updated to ios14 and now the app isn’t working properly. It doesn’t show the current song playing, and therefore doesn’t have a way to use controls (play, pause, forward, etc). So in addition, the controls also don’t work through my watch and AirPods. Hoping to get these important functions restored. Otherwise, we’ve been big fans of amazon music for years.

Good not GREAT
by Designer in Another Life on 2020/09/23 20:58
LOVE this! Love being able to find any song I can think of and add it to my playlists. Would give it 5 stars if the app didn’t randomly close- very annoying. 5 stars would be a “Great” app. Work towards a GREAT app!
Wont play music
by cjlanderos on 2020/09/23 20:46
I’ve tried to play music with my account but it wont even start the song.
Love This App
by Mememe91011 on 2020/09/23 20:10
I love this app, but now whenever I get a call playlist is gone... 🙄 can’t do anything other than shuffle or hit play to completely restart the music again. Let’s talk about how annoying that is. So hopefully this will get fixed soon, I use this daily.
How is this not better
by Laurie417 on 2020/09/23 20:04
I’ve been using the free version for some time and adjusted to the lack of good songs because I had a variety still. I mad my favorites playlist and shuffle that daily. Over 7hrs current. Now I obviously like these songs and have little to no reason to skip a song. The “Are you listening” prompt gets quite irritating every hour when I don’t want to take actions within this playlist. Extend the time frame or do away with it. Add a 10 sec commercial if it helps. Just upgraded to the free trial, mostly because I was bombarded with offers all day every day for the last year...Finally gave in. But on a side note, if I say not interested, could you give it a break til next month? I’m already hating the upgrade. My 7hr playlist will suddenly stop playing, currently playing disappears and I have to select shuffle again. Shouldn’t I have unlimited play? I know it hasn’t played through as I’ve restarted 3 times today in a short time. At this rate I’ll go back to free or another service for less fee.
We love Amazon Music!!

This is pretty good
by pro review lol not really on 2020/09/23 18:53

It good but a few complaints
by Emmy 😜😜 on 2020/09/23 18:32
When I got this app I was so excited I could listen to music on an app, and it was amazing until I searched up some song I really liked and it told me I had to buy music unlimited to listen to certain songs I liked. Other than that it is a pretty good app. But please fix this I want to be able to listen to ANYTHING I like
Personal and Easy
by Domioelgato on 2020/09/23 18:26
Amazon music brings great variety by offering additional music and stations based on my previous music journeys and it has simplified my decisions for long hours of listening!! I hope you enjoy as much as We do :)
Unlimited is stupid
by c0ntentc0p6669 on 2020/09/23 18:05
Truly a great app, but just get rid of music unlimited. I have prime, what more do you want from me?
What happened to the app?!?
by RSMU000007 on 2020/09/23 17:38
First off downloaded new Apple IOS on iPhone and then updated Amazon music...should of just stayed with old version. App randomly crashes now, the search feature is TERRIBLE...if I want to search for a song in my library, I have to go to filter and toggle on for EVERY search. It should either stay on or be a simple toggle that I don’t have to navigate to a filter page and then back to search. Please fix this!!
Apple Watch/Siri comparable
by Lizzabeth999 on 2020/09/23 17:23
I get that they’re competing AI’s but the ONLY thing I’d change about Apple Music is that it could have an Apple Watch app... I use my Alexa’s to stream music at home, Amazon Music and Sirius XM in my car... now I just need it on my watch!!
Great app...
by NomadicMarine on 2020/09/23 17:20
Great app but I’d like to see some enhanced UI features. Took a bit of time to adjust.

Not as good as Spotify
by Mighty Oregon on 2020/09/23 15:26
AM is decent, I mean most songs are on Amazon Music Unlimited which you have to pay for. And Spotify has way more songs. It’s not as good as Spotify but be honest peeps, nothing really is.
Love amazon music!
by tmcgov200 on 2020/09/23 15:26

Great App but could use improvements
by National man😏 on 2020/09/23 14:06
i really like this app and i am subscribed to amazon unlimited. i dont have too many complaints but i think the community is a little sad. Spotify has the best community by far and i really hope amazon can make the community a little more vibrant and fun. over all great app but i wouldn’t really pay for the unlimited.
Poor Update
by katmcsplat on 2020/09/23 13:43
The app playback button disappears completely from iPhone. You can’t stop the app from playing music without force closing the app. It doesn’t respond to headphone buttons as well.
No Apple Watch support?

Impossible to preview songs for download
by rachi h on 2020/09/23 11:56
Used to love this app until they made it impossible to preview songs for download. They are pushing their unlimited streaming which I don’t prefer. I just want to preview songs before I buy them. I want to listen to the song I want to listen to. I don’t want to stream everything but the song I want. That’s what I like Pandora for. Not amazon music.
Great app!
by dikeeny on 2020/09/23 10:37
Great to use while at the gym and at work!!
Could be better
by xNeonxClearx on 2020/09/23 07:52
There have always been a lot of bugs in the app, they usually fix them pretty quick though. The worst thing about the app is their decision to remove the back button from the lock screen. Now when I am using the app while driving, I would have to unlock my phone to back up a song. That makes it a bit less safe to use while driving. And less convenient to use while not driving. I want my back button returned to me
Good catalog, mediocre app functionality
by az837183 on 2020/09/23 07:14
Does not measure up to the best in terms of music discovery, information, music navigation. It is like a warehouse - lots of stuff, but no polish. I rate it even lower than before. Out of place podcasts, but no option to browse new album releases. Songs disappear from playlists or are replaced by non related ones. Song recognition only through Alexa... which will never be active on any device in our household... at least not knowingly. If not for the extensive catalog and HD streaming I would have dropped the service in a heartbeat. Sadly Apple or Spotify do not provide CD/HD options. I guess the majority of people listen to music only on their phones...
Great music selection with no commercials
by cadutchman on 2020/09/23 06:34
I love the broad selection of music available. I like many genres so this is a great place to explore new music. Of course I love the oldies too. My only criticism is no Led Zeppelin on prime only premium, which doesn’t fit into my budget. LOL, peace out! 😎🎸🎸🇺🇸
Sorting music under each playlist
by Cunbali on 2020/09/23 05:48
There needs to be a way to arrange each music on your playlist. ie; move a song from the number 1 spot to another spot the way Apple & YouTube can. Also, a way to see if a music already downloaded is in your library. Another disappointment is, too many re-mastered songs. You should have the original song by the original artist and not more remastered or live current artist 10-30 years past their original. Not interested. Library isn’t as large as Apple or YouTube unless you include all your duplicate and remastered same songs. Thank you.
Excellent music app
by Tot4499 on 2020/09/23 05:09
I absolutely love the Amazon music app. It’s my primary music application. I especially enjoy the many features that the application offers. I strongly recommend this app. It's definitely a 5-star music application.
Glitchy app with annoying popups.
by EncinoSarah on 2020/09/23 05:09
Glitchy, crappie app with constant popups. It’s free but very annoying.
Great Streaming App
by 100codeblue on 2020/09/23 05:00
I use the app all day to listen to my music and discover new music. The new update did create a small issue and I wanted to talk about it so Amazon Music is aware. When you are listening to music and using other apps, it now messes with the app. When I go back to the app, the bar that shows the song name and option to play/next song goes away and when you press next song on the iphone widget or in the car or with the earphone buttons, the app doesn't respond. You have to reset the app. It happens quite often since the update. Literally other than that, EVERYTHING else is great. 👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿

Need a play bar
by SurprenantR on 2020/09/23 03:24
If I accidentally touch the screen I can’t find what I’m listening to. I need a play bar to always be there. Something that’s always there. So frustrating to have to start over, because that is the only way I know to get back to the song I was listening to.

App will not play music

Missing some real needs

Need to have a family music plan Pay $12.99/month for prime $14.99 for music $14.99 for audio books All the music services want about the same so just stick with amazon
Great music when it works
by nut0077 on 2020/09/23 01:13
I love the ease of Amazon Music however it constantly freezes up or shuts down. It takes several minutes just to get it to play at times. Sometimes it’s just not worth all the trouble.
Great!

Could be better
by DanielMcHaney on 2020/09/23 00:26
My biggest complaint is sometimes the music doesn't play and only offline mode works, it's annoying. I have to close the app And re-open it for it to connect. I also do not like that the album cover art is darkened and gets covered up by action buttons.
Awesome, but 1 thing needs added
by Harper4Ever on 2020/09/23 00:22
I love Amazon Music it’s really the best music platform. All I want is there to be a profiles. I want where you can have like this is Jimmys profile and this is johns profile. Because having 1 profile and 5 people in my family it makes it hard to find my music that I forgot the name of because I have too look through like 1000 different artists. It would be a lot easier for me too just go to my profile and listen to my music.
Music

Love all the songs. Very seldom do I not find a song I’m looking for. Or unless it’s a chargeable song, which I still can’t afford in which case I just go to YouTube. (sorry) I I love the soundtracks it makes for me on a daily basis, using my music choices as it’s “soundingboard” very cool!
This is the best for me....
by sassy4mp on 2020/08/19 17:33
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!!
Decent , but could be better
by REEbeachbabe on 2020/01/22 17:15
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.
Great app, but needs a couple upgrades
by Googlaholic on 2020/08/22 07:29
Never in my life have I had access to so much great music—AM has transformed my life. I know that sounds a bit melodramatic, but growing up and throughout my adulthood, I didn’t have the money to buy albums. I’d listen to what was on the radio to and from work, but I never really **listened** to music. AM and my Echo devices have changed that. Now, I listen to a new artist every night and have learned that I really like listening to music in the same way I love to read—it feeds my soul. I just hadn’t realized that until I had unlimited access to every genre and artist pretty much on the planet. That said, there are two things I wish were part of the AM app. First, there needs to be a way to rate artists, albums, and songs, as you can in iTunes. I listen to so many new things, it’s hard to keep track of what I like. Second, I need some way to easily remove songs from my phone without changing my music content. I guess it’s possible there is an easy way to free up space without having to go song by song and without taking the music out of **my content**. But I haven’t found it. When these two issues are addressed I will gladly increase my rating to five stars.
Keep listening feedback is annoying
by HillaryLaweeze on 2020/05/19 15:37
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.
Good but can be better
by Colbat King on 2020/04/07 23:38
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.
Possibly the most frustrating music app
by Floody85 on 2019/06/06 01:50
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
Best music app! Would give 4.5 stars!
by SodaPopBears on 2019/04/24 11:23
I love this app! There's a few bugs but for the most part the app runs well. Rarely do I have to skip songs to get it to continue playing; sometimes it forgets where it's at in the song once I've hit paused so it'll replay from the beginning but I don't mind that. I love that I can listen to just about whatever I want for free. I just wish you could customize stations or that it was easier to find specific stations (There may be a way and I just haven't found it yet). I'd like to have an 80s, 90s, and today station just because it's all my favorite at one time. Oh well, I'm enjoying my random solely 80s music days so it's good. I also like the exposure to new music as well. Overall, love this app; very minimal complaints. I'd give 4.5 stars if I could. Reduced to 3 stars. The has gotten buggy. It crashes every so often and takes several tries to restart it. I still like the ease of use and it's the only app I use for music however I'd like to see some updates pertaining to customer complaints. Back to 4 stars. Fewer crashes! Some bugs still when paired with Bluetooth but overall a great app
I like but let’s talk
by Shaolins Own on 2019/01/01 23:02
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.
Station/connection issues
by Kvlard on 2020/04/08 14:50
I use this daily. I enjoy the use of it and have for some time now. There are some issues that I am noticing recently. My stations will often drop multiple times with no reason I could find. It’s pretty annoying to have to start a station, or playlist over again after dropped within short periods of time. PC version drops less often as iPhone, but still occurs. I have a few issues with the interface of this app. Song choice is difficult to find. Scrolling through all songs to find one (same with artist/album choice) is cumbersome and takes a while. When choosing to play a certain artist in my library, I can’t figure out how to play all that artists songs, only one album at a time. Might just be me not knowing how but that is really challenging my patience right now. When searching for stations/artists on prime music (versus library), irrelevant options come up. During station play, songs that are not matching genre or artist choice plays. I continue to use it as my main source of music player online/app, but am looking into other options because of issues listed above.
Great, but not always
by SaViSe on 2020/01/24 17:32
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!
by kelsarro on 2019/11/24 21:16
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.
New Update RUINED IT!!
by AlicksterJ on 2019/09/03 05:26
This is a great app! I can’t deny that it is extremely useful and easy to use— and is ideal for anyone who likes to listen to music on the go— however, after updating to the most recent version of the app, I have found that after a mandatory refresh, all my music was GONE! I had downloaded well over 3,000 songs (as an Unlimited subscriber) and was very disappointed to find all that gone. Not only that, but every thirty seconds the app crashes and restarts— making it to where it would be virtually impossible to re-download all those missing songs unless I had god-speed wifi, which, I regret to inform you, I do not have. I hope this is not the case through every device using the app, but it is the case for me and it is very disheartening, as I do not have data on my device and cannot access wifi 24/7 to where I could simply use it without downloads. All I ask is that the crashing gets resolved. Restarting my device did not help, either, so I believe it is the app itself. But also, please do not remove all of one’s offline music in the next update please. 🙏
Listen every day
by Jfzxbuhgvv567 on 2019/02/21 12:56
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.
Mostly Doesn’t Work
by JenkinsJ on 2020/06/15 04:16
I wish I could give this app a better rating but I just can’t. It barely works with CarPlay. I have a 2019 Honda and trying to use the interface through CarPlay is frustrating. I’ll try to queue up music I’ve listened to before using the interface and some songs play. Some don’t. I have to use the app to make the song play. Trying to find songs I want to play is frustrating. The only option on CarPlay is to scroll through every song or album on my songs until I find the one I want. Search feature? Apple Music gives me a way to at least get to the first letter. Recently played is hit or miss. Many times, songs I listened to in the car yesterday are missing from recently played. I’ll be listening to music and all of sudden the bass just disappears and I’m hearing the tweeters and possibly the midrange with no base. The only way I have found to fix this is to unplug it from CarPlay and then plug it back in. Most times that works but sometimes it doesn’t. It only resets after the car has been turned off and restarted. I tried reinstalling the app and reinstalling it but that hasn’t fixed the problems. Really not sure why this app is so bad. I think you can do better.
Great!... But One problem
by Carleigh Hare😜🤣🥳😍 on 2020/08/07 22:18
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.
by glevumguy on 2020/07/29 16:42
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
by Fancythat918 on 2020/08/04 05:10
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
by Fulano2 on 2019/05/04 17:27
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.
Great all in all, but a few glitches.
by Keeping this name anonymous on 2020/09/10 15:35
I love this app. I’ll say that first. It has all of my favorite artists, and such a large selection of songs/albums. I can download music, create playlists, all the things I need for a streaming service. However, this app isn’t without its flaws. Sometimes you can’t go back to a certain part without starting the song over. If you pause a song and start it again it might stop making sound but look like it’s still playing. (It’s not, pause it and it fixes itself.) The app crashes a lot, mostly if you’re not in the app at the moment. That’s the most frustrating of all of them, as it starts whatever song you were playing over. (But not the album, play queue or playlist. It will shut down radio stations, however.) I’d like to mention that I saw a review saying you couldn’t make play queues or play a single song on loop. This is not the case. I don’t know if that was a patch or something, but I’ve always been able to play one song on loop. Perhaps it’s a difference between phone models, but I’m on a 6 and it works just fine. I don’t see why it wouldn’t on later phones. All in all I really like the app, and it’s by far the best streaming service I’ve used. The issues I listed may look like a lot, but really they’re small and easy to deal with. I seriously recommend AM. I hope this helps!
Previously great, currently not so much
by CrappyAppgfdssfhjdsdf on 2019/10/08 19:29
Love this app and use it regularly with my bluetooth in my car since i drive alot. Since the last update, it seems they have limited the number of suggested songs for you. Before, i could open that section and keep hitting the show more button and then play through the list of 200+ songs and find new songs i like. Now, it shows maybe 50 songs and doesnt allow you to show more. Another major gripe for me is when someone calls me while connected to bluetooth while the music is playing, the sound changes until i exit out of the app and restart. If i do not do this then the music sounds like i am listening to it through a phone call. Similar to music playing in the background of a phone call when you are placed on hold. Happens everytime and it gets old having to clear the app out of my background and restart it after every phonecall. This didnt occur until the latest update so I hope its fixed. Would have gave 5 stars prior to this
Like it
by Roamingricky on 2019/04/01 14:36
So far it’s working out well, I do like the Alexa feature, but it doesn’t work when my iPad isn't active so you still have to push buttons. LOL. So far I’ve been able to find all the music I have been looking for, time will tell, can’t give them five stars because there’s always room for improvement in the structure of the app. For example if you go to play Lady Gaga, it will only play the same four songs over and over until you actually go and open it up and make them play the full playlist, that seems like a waste of time, who would ask to play Lady Gaga and only want the same four songs? Should just give u the full list right off. Some of the other controls and features take a while to hunt and peck to find as well, some work on the user-friendly interface wouldn’t hurt. Overall for the music that I listen to, I don’t find the monthly subscription fee overly excessive. I will continue to enjoy your product. Thank you
It’s Great, But....
by Phillybobjr on 2020/02/25 04:32
I love the app and I’m so happy to finally have an app to get all my music, my only complaint is that they don’t have every song I want. Like some of my songs I understand why they don’t have, they’re not from a super famous artists, but then there’s others. One example is the song Tonight (I’m Loving You) by Enrique Iglesias, I cant find it, and I do understand it’s not the original version of what I understand but I don’t get why it’s not there. Like with Enrique there’s some other artist that the one song I wanted from them isn’t there (ex. Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, by Set it off). And the worst of it isn’t that the song just isn’t their. It’s that there’s always some weird parody of the song that doesn’t sound good, this is my one complaint, so if they’re could be a way to possibly request songs to add to the carts library of music it would be perfect.
Almost great
by flashylady on 2018/04/16 12:35
I like having music whether I'm on WIF or offline. Tons of songs, artists,etc. My issue is after I've created a playlist - I can't change location where the song is in the playlist. I now have favorite songs I'd like to slide up higher in the list but since they were added last....I can't. I have to create a new play list :( There are times where I want to hear certain songs but the only choice is shuffle. Why can't I press a song & slide it up or down? It would be nice to also copy & paste same song in same playlist to hear it twice. Can't do that either. *Note - after having an awesome offline playlist for almost a year, I went I to the app and got a message that my playlist had expired! Had to start all over downloading my online music (playlists were not the same). Both my iPad and phone had the same issue a couple months apart. SO, make sure your online playlist has the same music you want offline.
Overall pretty decent
by Kendykai on 2019/08/03 06:17
I like it so far. I kind of think it’s wack that there’s an additional fee on top of the prime membership fee- but the app has most every song I’ve looked up so far. I would say- I think that I don’t care for the mixes they produce. Maybe it’s me, but I find the platform a little challenging to use to narrow down recommendations based on my specific tastes. I really liked how pandora does that. However- one of the main selling points for prime music was we could hook it to our echo dot and basically just ask Alexa to play us any song at any time. It’s great! I also love it because when I’m in the car using my Bluetooth, I can just leave the app open on my phone, set the phone down, and just ask Alexa to play me whatever song I wanted to hear. Much less annoying than random stations or pre making playlists. So that’s the main reason I stay- Alexa is far superior and I gotta be safe while I’m driving 🤷🏼‍♀️. Hope this helps!
Still a few basic features missing.
by Hawks fan #4517 on 2018/12/25 03:51
Playlists that auto switch to offline content when connectivity fails to meet streaming needs. Generated playlists of content based on listening preferences and played tracks (hint if I listen longer, I like the music). Simpler switching between Alexa devices, Bluetooth, airplay etc , right now I have to push the disconnect button to get the Apple contextual menu to change BT devices. And lastly, better discoverability of the music I’ve added to my account based on my premium account. It’s difficult to find all the tracks I’ve added to my account in the past 6 months etc. Also some sort of iconography to let me know when an interrupt of audio will happen. When u tap on a station it immediately switches, but when you tap on a playlist you get a contextual menu. This means that whilst DJ’ing with the app, you have to know where the stations are vs the playlists to avoid gaps in music.
Problems keep it from being great
by small hobbit on 2019/12/09 15:55
I like to download music; this is because I’m not always on wi-fi, and still use an iPod Touch. The problem is there doesn’t seem to be a clear way to delete downloaded songs from the device. This causes bloat as songs that I no longer want downloaded are seemingly stuck. Another issue I have, that honestly isn’t as major, is that if I try to update a downloaded playlist instead of overwriting the existing downloaded version it makes a new numerical numbered playlist (so it creates a “playlist 1” instead of overwriting the playlist there) Not as big of an issue since playlists can easily be deleted, it’s just annoying. I’m also strangely getting different suggestions in the web version than I am in the app; I do like both kinds, I just can’t figure out why these are different and why I can’t get the suggestions I’m getting on the website in the app. This is because the ONLY suggestions I’ve been getting in app are alternative, which is okay, but is far from the only bands I listen to.
Great app - Minor improvements still needed
by JPDoesNotLikeU on 2019/03/31 15:38
Overall, the app functions well and the music selection is fantastic. I have yet to search for a song that I could not find. A couple of small improvements that could make this app 5 Star for me would be: Ability to sort the song orders on the playlists I create. Always having the first song I put on the playlist is not ideal. I would prefer to have the last song added on the top and the first song added on the bottom, that way I hear the newest music first. Other sort filters could include sort by number of times played, release date, and of course date added. Another needed improvement is that when a song is removed, rather than just sitting grayed out on my playlist, the song should be replaced with a working version of the same title and artist (ie replace the removed Everything I Need by Skylar Gray with a working version of Everything I Need by Skylar Gray).
Music quality A++ but a few fixes would make it 5 stars
by ACGoris on 2020/03/05 16:18
The good: pretty broad selection, lots of ultra-HD, and the sound is great. The medium: some of the ultra-HD of old classic rock has been remixed. In some cases this is good when some bass has been added back in that wasn’t possible in the original due to the dynamic range limitations of vinyl. In some cases the bass is a little over done, but still probably a little better than the original. In other mixes, it just doesn’t sound quite right, since the original art was the product of the musicians and the mixers at the time. When this happens, the feel is similar to watching a colorized veesion of a classic black-and-white film. Needs work: The user interface is clunky; search often misses songs you’re looking for,so you have to try different ways of getting to what you want, and when listening in the car, the iPhone app hangs when you lose service and often doesn’t resume playing once you have service again.
They should be able to get it right!
by G.Hill on 2020/08/23 21:39
For one of the largest companies in the world they really should be able to figure this out and have the best working product; but they haven’t. The app easily gets confused, disconnects from or won’t disconnect from my Alexa powered speaker. It then says that you have multiple connections to the app and won’t disconnect properly. I have to do a series of steps to straighten it out. Just like Apple; I really don’t think real people test out their own product enough. I don’t use Apple Music so I don’t really have that to compare the two and that’s why I gave 2 stars instead of 1. When I’m on my WiFi at home (even after I deleted and reinstalled the app like they told me to do) the music sometimes speeds up like chipmunks or slows way down (usually at a really good part of the song). From my point of view; the technology is there enough for the music to pre-buffer if you will; so that it is guaranteed to not change speeds like that. It’s okay but I don’t think I’ll keep it much longer.
Pretty good selection, Pathetic touch Performance
by ChemTunes on 2019/12/31 16:58
I am pleased you can download original recordings from many favorite musicians (not all, however, and if you have downloaded or added musicians to your playlists, sometimes they disappear due to requiring Unmlimited). The navigation during workouts is not convenient unless you create a playlist). Most people rely on using their smartphones inside a case during exercise. It's completely useless if you have to stop to take your phone out of the case in order to use your bare finger. SHOWSTOPPER! The worst part is if you don’t have Unlimited, the app makes you cancel the pop up ad every single time. So you have more delays getting started. So I only use it indoors when I know I have WiFi and I don’t need to fumble with gloves to reconnect or advance a song, hit forward if it has stopped for some reason (connection? Picks up Nearby car Bluetooth?). I also use a wired earphone in one ear to also avoid Bluetooth interference.
How is this not better
by Laurie417 on 2020/09/23 20:04
I’ve been using the free version for some time and adjusted to the lack of good songs because I had a variety still. I mad my favorites playlist and shuffle that daily. Over 7hrs current. Now I obviously like these songs and have little to no reason to skip a song. The “Are you listening” prompt gets quite irritating every hour when I don’t want to take actions within this playlist. Extend the time frame or do away with it. Add a 10 sec commercial if it helps. Just upgraded to the free trial, mostly because I was bombarded with offers all day every day for the last year...Finally gave in. But on a side note, if I say not interested, could you give it a break til next month? I’m already hating the upgrade. My 7hr playlist will suddenly stop playing, currently playing disappears and I have to select shuffle again. Shouldn’t I have unlimited play? I know it hasn’t played through as I’ve restarted 3 times today in a short time. At this rate I’ll go back to free or another service for less fee.
Turn off the TV get back to Music
by SonyAlphaShooter on 2018/11/18 09:10
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 Unlimited 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.
Not working
by KLP❤️music on 2019/08/31 12:11
I’ve had an Unlimited music subscription for a while now and it’s always worked 90% of the places where I use my phone, mostly in the car. As of about a week or so ago it started not working most of the time. I primarily use it around the same areas such as home and my drive to and from work and it keeps going to offline mode and spends a lot of time buffering! I generally don’t stray too far out of the same areas where it used to work and now doesn’t more often than not! It’s very frustrating to say the least. I didn’t change my cell provider (AT&T) and I tried turning off my phone, deleting and reloading the app because I really thought it was something with my phone, come to find out my daughter is having the same issue with her app! We both have iPhones - one is an 8+ and the other an X and they are fairly new phones. Bottom line, I would’ve given it a 5 star rating if I didn’t have all these recent issues.
Love it, but app has some quirks
by VT_Freshy on 2020/02/05 14:32
This is really a 4.5 star rating, but rounding. I’ve been a Prime member for about 15 years now and have had the Music app for about 3 with Unlimited. Love the service, but the app has been significantly slower recently when accessing music, beginning mid to late 2019. Another issue with the app is that your offline and online playlists don’t sync. If you make one offline, it should copy the list to online when you connect, so that you can play it through your Echo devices - by it doesn’t. Same goes for making one online, it is not accessible when I’m offline mode, regardless of whether individual songs are downloaded. Would love to see this simple improvement made, as well as a return to more responsive operation such as not taking 30 seconds in some cases to start a song that is on the device.
Area To Improve
by Butuandan on 2019/09/01 03:22
Offline playlist setup not as user friendly. Please improve your service because internet connection is sometimes unreliable. Also, it would help a lot when I am on airplane mode. Thanks. You need to add better dialogue with your user when he accesses different pages. I am left guessing because many of the subsequent steps are hidden. Keep testing your system and analyze the clicks of your new users and trace the ways by which you could make your app friendlier. Please. September 1, 2019: I noticed improvements. Thanks. Invite communities of testers. From teenagers to parents to seniors, let them navigate your dialogues when selecting songs to downloading them while on offline mode. You need to learn from their mistakes thus allowing you to design your improvements where it is needed. More needs to be done. You are not there yet. Good luck.
LOVE THIS!
by Rooster-817 on 2020/03/01 03:55
I’ve been skeptical about all the different ways to spend my money online and through social media. I’ve had more negative experiences than positive ones. Negative: my grandchildren moved 250 miles away from me. Positive: last weekend was the most enjoyable trip I’ve ever had to Oklahoma City because I was able to choose the songs, CDs, and or artists of my preference. Albert Einstein‘s time space continuum went out the window and I traveled from Fort Worth to Oklahoma City in about 30 minutes. I really can’t tell you how any other music platform compares because this is the first one I’ve tried but I sure do like it. Update: One year later & Im canceling satellite radio... This is all I need... Bummer, driving through he mountains caused lost signal with AT&T; one point for sat radio, but not Amazon’s fault. Have since learned off line mode... 5 Stars.
Daily app for my daily jams. Better than other streaming services.
by ethasp on 2019/03/15 03:49
Downloaded anything I wanted with no issues. Being able to download music makes it great for not using data when out and about. Ive downloaded over 12 GBs of music on my phone and the sound quality is great, and in many cases, much better than streaming services. The UI could use a little work and I wish my offline playlists could be copied to an online playlist. That way I could use the playlists I normally use easier with our fire stick or Alexa. Occasionally, licensing expires for music and it can become unavailable. It doesn’t matter how popular of a song it is, it can happen. Maybe a warning could help this be less of a surprise or maybe it could let you know when or if that music becomes available again...
Frustrating
by TheRealCombat on 2019/10/01 15:37
As long as you are in a good service area it’s fine. However, the second it has a network connection issue it just gives up and stops playing music. Even if the song is already fully buffered! This is really annoying when driving through rural areas. It will randomly quit playing and pop up a modal window saying there was a network connection issue and to retry again later with a stronger connection. It does this when I have service and I can even watch the buffer continue to load in the background. Pressing play does not resume playing at this point, instead you have to skip the song to get it going again. When I’m working on a project in my shop I’m at the limit of my home WiFi. My phone will bounce around between LTE and WiFi. It seems to cause this app to just randomly stop playing. It doesn’t display a message saying why, it just stops playing. It’s always right after I get my hands dirty and don’t want to touch my phone. I mean, come on... 😕
Solid music app
by QueentoBishop on 2020/03/04 04:37
Could use a more extensive selection of songs; a few soundtracks I would love to be able to put in playlists are missing, although they are fairly obscure. The soundtracks to Holloknight and GATTACA, for example, can only be found as piano covers. The algorithms in the radio stations run the same few songs over and over again. And the app quits, oftentimes, with a direct connection in the car. The music stops, and a check of the phone shows that the app has closed itself out. The car is as likely to blame as the app, in these situations. But, all that being said, there is more than enough music on the app to satisfy an audience of even the most eclectic tastes. I have been able to find new music I love on here, and have very much been enjoying using it for the past couple of months.
Unlimited too expensive
by BlueTrap28 on 2018/12/23 21:09
I have had this app for a couple years now and I use it almost everyday. It has the songs I love and the layout of the entire thing is simple and easy to use. But the music unlimited is driving me crazy, I get it you want more of us to pay even more money to listen to more music I got the message. But it is really messed up when you take away our songs. What I mean by that is one time I was listening to Get free by Major Lazor for a couple months and one day it wouldn’t let me play it anymore, it’s been moved to unlimited. This wouldn’t be huge except for how expensive unlimited is ON TOP of my $130 Prime membership. Last I checked, it was all or nothing, only two people in my family use prime music so I don’t need any more than 2 users but it’s nothing or whole family for almost $20/mo with taxes. I’m just not having it. I’ve cancelled my auto renewal for prime and I just refuse to give them another $1 at this point.
pretty good but could use improvement
by rachel is the best at bedwars on 2020/05/17 22:47
i love how most of the songs are available for me to use without paying for unlimited (i am both unwilling and unable to) but i have a few complaints. 1) moving songs in a playlist is hard. whenever you add a new song it goes all the way to the bottom and the only way you can rearrange things is remove them and add them back in the order you want 2) one song i had on the playlist (let’s call it A and the artist is B) when i searched for A, i could see it was by B and even when i saw it in the album i could see B’s name. but when i put that specific song (A) in my playlist, i could not see that the song was by B. it said “unknown artist” but it’s clearly known because it shows it elsewhere 3) sometimes the audio goes out, but it might be due to other reasons (my headphones, my family screaming in the background, or my internet connection). i think it’s mostly due to those reasons and not the app. however, when i leave the app for too long, the song that hadn’t finished starts over. 4) some songs on one album have lyrics shown, and others on the same album don’t?? why is that, why can’t y’all be consistent? not that big of a deal though otherwise it’s a pretty great app and i love listening to my favorite artists there without having to pay for everything
Good music with a lot of choices
by Yovdakeeya on 2020/02/03 23:02
I really like Prime Music. They have lots of choices including many full albums. However, there are 2 downfalls: 1. The music stops if more than one device is playing. It didn’t do this before and it’s very frustrating. 2. They are obnoxiously persistent in trying to push their more expensive unlimited version. Often they will obstruct the ability to go directly to Prime Music—instead, making you opt out of the higher cost unlimited version. Several times, when I opted out of the unlimited, instead of directing me to Prime Music it would just take me back to the previous screen. I’ve been a Prime member for several years and it started doing this a few months ago. Prime Music is not a free service. There is a monthly fee. For that reason alone, they should make it easy to use and not try to force you to use the more expensive version.
Alright, removes music and really makes you want unlimited
by TelMinz on 2019/02/17 03:35
The song selection is pretty good with out paying the premium for unlimited. If your just looking for an app to just play random music, there’s probably better options out there. I wouldn’t know. I’ve never tried them really. The only thing I don’t like. This app has a habit of removing music that’s is in your library. Royalties change all the time, I get it, but you can sometimes search for the song the next week and it’s available again, usually never again tho. Upgrade to prime if you love music tho, worth it imo. Every song *almost*. Obscure tracks that release on underground/bootleg don’t usually show up. But other than that I’ve had pretty good luck. I’ll give more feedback after I’ve used unlimited for several months+. I had prime only for years and just got unlimited. Enjoying it so far.
3 star app Begs for a 5 star review
by A3A2A4 on 2020/01/02 14:39
Overall, the app is okay. I can find most music I want. But it is hard work to use. You can't add songs from one playlist to another. if you have it in offline mode and no internet connection, it still has a pop up that tells you to go into your WiFi settings and turn it on, which is annoying. It's difficult to delete music from your phone, you have to delete each individual song, there isn't select option to delete multiple songs. It's tricky to understand exactly what is offline and online. And even if a song is offline and down a loaded, if it is on a playlist that isn't flagged as "offline" it won't play. If you download a pre organized playlist, you can't edit or add new music, you have to add the playlist to the queue, add songs, save it as a new playlist which can crash the app. So while it's functional, it's not the most convenient.
good but....
by LMT, NMT on 2020/09/11 12:38
I loved this app when I first started using it. (I use mostly during my massage sessions). I would turn it on and it would play all day. Now I can not turn it on before a session because it will stop playing during my sessions ( it will only play 50 to 60 min. And ask are you still listening? I have to take my hands off the client to turn back on the music. This is not cool at all. I really like the variety music I can play but.... having to turn it back on during a session has turned me off. It would ok if I only did 30 min session but I do, offer 1 hour, 1 1/2 hour and 2 hour session. I have to use ITunes for those and that gets boring listening to the same music all the time. Please fix the app so that it will play at least 5 to 6 hours ( I listen to it between clients as well) before asking are you still listening. If that where fixed it would definitely be 5 stars!!
Latest update stuck on splash screen!
by MCC Fan on 2019/07/27 09:19
The latest update from the 26th kept freezing on the startup/splash screen and I couldn’t revert to the old version so I had to uninstall and reinstall the app. Unfortunately, when I did that it deleted all of the Offline Playlists that I’ve been making over the past year or so. That’s a lot to loose and there doesn’t seem to be any way to get them back. You all should have fixed the problem and put out an update so this kind of thing didn’t happen. Now what am I supposed to do? Go back through and try to remember all the different playlists I made? That’ll take me another year and a half. So annoying. Can’t believe I pay so much for this kind of crap. It’s not fair to pay so much and loose playlists, have content disappear, wrong song and lyric information, as well as not being able to add my own songs and your library not having as much of a variety as you claim!! Ridiculous!!! Please do something about this before more people like me loose all their playlists!!!
good app, but super frustrating
by esowers4 on 2020/05/04 01:56
This app works well for listening to music if you have unlimited. Finding songs isn’t incredibly difficult and it’s really easy for making playlists. Here is my problem: I have a playlist with 300+ songs and frequently put it on shuffle. The design of the app is set up so that the download button is right next to the shuffle button. This is incredibly bad design because when you go to click shuffle, you accidentally download 300 songs. The worst part is, there is no cancel button! You can’t cancel this MASSIVE download of songs off of the app! There should at least be a cancel button so if you accidentally click download, you don’t have to sit there and let it take up all your storage space. Better yet: don’t put the download button right at the top of the playlist! This is horrible design on amazons part and should seriously be improved.
Overall great but needs some tweaks
by Emma❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤 on 2018/11/05 20:08
So I’ve been using this app for around 3 years and I have never experienced anything like what is happening right now, for some reason I can not listen to any music. When ever I go to tap play it switches to the next song and just automatically goes on and on and doesn’t stop going!!!! It’s getting really annoying! Overall the app is amazing and has restrictions for kids I which is amazing. One thing I don’t like is that you have to pay for some music and it’s not like it’s just the bad music it’s the most listened to music, and the music that I listen to. I wish that maybe you don’t have to pay or at least get a couple free of your choice each month or so. That would make my experience much better. Also is the app had a new update to fix what ever is wrong with the app because I use this app everyday for 2+ hours, so it would really help to fix the app!! Thank you!!
Hearing damage free Drive must mean free hearing damage
by very concerned long-term user on 2019/01/20 03:33
IMDb Freedive First off I would like to say that I have nothing against commercials or ads I even enjoy some commercials and some ads but when you turn up the volume so loud that you could give someone hearing damage because you turn it up The volume up right when the commercial comes on so much you’re liable to get sued by a class-action lawsuit this is very serious there’s already been laws passed preventing you from doing this but company still insist on being reckless and irresponsible And downright greedy I will never buy a single product advertised by any ad that you turn the volume up on ever the people who make the ads should also sue you and not pay you any money whatsoever. Also I’m going to start a list of every ad on free drive and contact each advertiser and tell them to pull the plug on you. I don’t see how you think by turning the volume up on ads it will help you sell items because it’s made me so upset that I will never buy a product on any of your commercials

Misused
Gets worse with every update
by Ron750 on 2020/09/25 00:47
This app gets more confusing, with less useful features, with every update. Many songs disappear as they get switched to Music Unlimited. And they don’t notify you that’s happening they just disappear. Or disappear for no reason. This last update is the worst. For years it was called My Music, than they change it to Library, but don’t explain that. They change the way you do things like switch to offline, but there’s no improvement, just change for no reason. Keep it simple stupid!

Portia I’m thoroughly enjoying Amazon music I just set it up on my iPad and you can browse create your own playlist.AmazonPrime is the way to go. Even before the pandemic, free shipping plus Amazon music plus prime videos for a very -$14.99 I signed up. No regrets. But even if all you get is a music it’s cool.

Update issue
by Uevfhxhfndjcjdn on 2020/09/24 20:24
I have the new iOS 14. whenever I receive a phone call I can not control Amazon music at all. I have to open the app and select a new station or playlist. Very annoying hopefully it is fixed soon
Music
by Australian Sheperd on 2020/09/24 19:32
I love the fact you can find pet much any music you want no matter how old the songs are or how new they are. Any variety and the price is incredible!! Unlike other apps where you get commercials here you don’t. If you don’t have this app you should definitely get it. Trust me you won’t regret it!!!! 🎼🎹
Bad update
by My sis loves this on 2020/09/24 19:23
App barely works anymore? Whole playing bar went away and in order to stop playing a song you have to close the entire app. Like are you serious ?? It doesn’t even show what’s playing from lock screen , app itself, or in control center . Don’t understand what i’m even paying for
Bad update
by Sb😡😡😡 on 2020/09/24 19:19
I keep having to force close it which is super inconvenient when I’m hooked to Bluetooth and can’t use my phone to pause or change music or stop it when I get unhooked to Bluetooth like opening a car door stop my stereo but my phone keeps playing like it’s not supposed to.
Please fix the bug!!
by 1Rahulkb on 2020/09/24 19:19
Whenever I connect it to apple CarPlay and use Siri, it somehow looses the radio station and whenever I try pausing or using the controls, it stops working until I restart the app
Love the “working” app features
by Berubea5 on 2020/09/24 18:51
I do love using the app when it’s running. I have used multiple phones, even the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and still the app closes randomly on me. Sometimes it remembers the song, at least form the beginning. Sometimes it doesn’t. Please fix app shut downs. The point of a playlist is to not mess with your phone while you drive. 🤦‍♀️
App shuts down
by ttcc123487 on 2020/09/24 16:56
Love the fact there is plenty of music to stream-however the app seems to shut down a lot when connected to my vehicle.

Not working properly

Paying for music
by Messy0704 on 2020/09/24 14:47
I think if a person is subscribed to amazon music then we should be able to listen and source ALL available songs and no be required to listen on a device.
Awesome
by Weeziy on 2020/09/24 14:01

Quality decrease
by GrazyNicole on 2020/09/24 13:33
There’s been a stark decrease in quality recently. The bugs are enough to make me considering switching to a different music app, something I haven’t considered in years. My music now frequently stops playing out of nowhere and the song playing is no longer viewable from the lock screen or by swiping up. Please fix the problems.
Great app
by Mikee57 on 2020/09/24 13:28
Great app with no commercials! But wish you could turn off the offers to pay/ month or completely filter out music you have to pay extra for.
Freezes up
by Joey Flint on 2020/09/24 13:02
This app is great and there are a LOT of great songs, however recently I’ve run into some problems where I listen to some 10 songs and the controls freeze up. I can’t skip, pause, or start where I left off. I end up resetting the app and it gets really annoying. If Amazon can fix this issue then this app would be perfect
Okay when it works
by POND3R on 2020/09/24 12:57
After installing the new iOS 14 update, there seems to be even more glitches. I listen to Amazon music daily and noticed that if it’s playing, and I receive or make a phone call, I lose all control of my music. The play button doesn’t work on the phone or my watch, the skip buttons quit working, and it makes me kill the app and restart before I regain the correct controls. On top of having to pay more than what I’m already paying for to get all the music they offer, this app is ok at best
Ruined the app
by Lucky itself h hip on 2020/09/24 12:39
Got rid of many of my favorite songs
A few bugs
by Kechalk3 on 2020/09/24 12:36
I love the app but there are a few bugs that need to be fixed. If I am listening on my phone sometimes my music stops playing. When I open my phone to fix it it is like the app restarted on its own. This issue has been more recently but sometimes when I go back to my app to skip a song, the display at the bottom has disappeared so it doesn’t even show what song is playing. The only way I can fix the display to show is to restart my app but then I have to restart the playlist. If these issues can be fixed the app would be perfect!
Crashes often
by RocketMsn75 on 2020/09/24 12:03
Love Amazon muscle integration across the family but this app crashes often and is very flaky with Apple CarPlay.
Getting too complex
by Capable User, TYVM on 2020/09/24 11:42
It used to be much more intuitive and straight forward. But updates upon updates have made it more and more convoluted, requiring too many clicks and scrolls to get to functions. For example, navigating to See All Playlists of a very specific Genre is tedious. The app no longer restarts there. Common use buttons are moved or gone. WHY?!
Recording
by Fortyninehike on 2020/09/24 10:38
It works most of time, but the mic is working ALL the time. Amazon, mic should only be activated when using Alexa!
Great app

I can listen to it even more when I’m in the mood for quiet time. Station I can’t located on laptop easier to find

I got this app because I previously had Prime, which made it easier to get a bunch of songs for less money. (Although I still have to buy some songs.) Recently, they added this feature where the songs you liked on a radio station would show up in a playlist. I can’t tell you how much I do not like this playlist. I have a specific number of playlists and this sort of ruined it. Like, just make it a playlist you can follow or something. Another problem I have is the radio stations. I don’t like how you can’t save a radio station so you can easily find it later. Another newly added feature that annoys me is when a song I recently got with Prime switches to Unlimited, I can’t just delete it off my playlist. I feel like an easier way to fix that would be to let you play the song you had before until you delete it. That would make things easier.
Great selection
by donnamiup on 2020/09/24 04:27
I have looked at other music services, I was surprised to see that Amazon’s catalog carried much of the obscure music that I have been looking for! I love the selection there has been only one song I couldn’t find so far!
Great music
by Pepper #1 on 2020/09/24 03:18
I certainly enjoy listening to music at night to relax from the day. Especially being able to have a variety of music from country, jazz , pop, or even hard rock,
New issue
by jkjk2355 on 2020/09/24 01:53
I'm a big fan of Amazon music but noticed with recent updates that if a playlist is playing and another app interrupts (such as a message notification) the playlist continues actually playing music but the controls showing the song playing, skip, pause, etc are no longer available. You have to close the app, reopen and restart the playlist. It's very inconvenient while driving. It worked great up until ~a week ago or so

Glitchy after iOS 14 update
by Jacebanty on 2020/09/23 23:16
Just updated to ios14 and now the app isn’t working properly. It doesn’t show the current song playing, and therefore doesn’t have a way to use controls (play, pause, forward, etc). So in addition, the controls also don’t work through my watch and AirPods. Hoping to get these important functions restored. Otherwise, we’ve been big fans of amazon music for years.

Good not GREAT
by Designer in Another Life on 2020/09/23 20:58
LOVE this! Love being able to find any song I can think of and add it to my playlists. Would give it 5 stars if the app didn’t randomly close- very annoying. 5 stars would be a “Great” app. Work towards a GREAT app!
Wont play music

Love This App
by Mememe91011 on 2020/09/23 20:10
I love this app, but now whenever I get a call playlist is gone... 🙄 can’t do anything other than shuffle or hit play to completely restart the music again. Let’s talk about how annoying that is. So hopefully this will get fixed soon, I use this daily.
How is this not better
by Laurie417 on 2020/09/23 20:04
I’ve been using the free version for some time and adjusted to the lack of good songs because I had a variety still. I mad my favorites playlist and shuffle that daily. Over 7hrs current. Now I obviously like these songs and have little to no reason to skip a song. The “Are you listening” prompt gets quite irritating every hour when I don’t want to take actions within this playlist. Extend the time frame or do away with it. Add a 10 sec commercial if it helps. Just upgraded to the free trial, mostly because I was bombarded with offers all day every day for the last year...Finally gave in. But on a side note, if I say not interested, could you give it a break til next month? I’m already hating the upgrade. My 7hr playlist will suddenly stop playing, currently playing disappears and I have to select shuffle again. Shouldn’t I have unlimited play? I know it hasn’t played through as I’ve restarted 3 times today in a short time. At this rate I’ll go back to free or another service for less fee.

It good but a few complaints
by Emmy 😜😜 on 2020/09/23 18:32
When I got this app I was so excited I could listen to music on an app, and it was amazing until I searched up some song I really liked and it told me I had to buy music unlimited to listen to certain songs I liked. Other than that it is a pretty good app. But please fix this I want to be able to listen to ANYTHING I like
Personal and Easy
by Domioelgato on 2020/09/23 18:26
Amazon music brings great variety by offering additional music and stations based on my previous music journeys and it has simplified my decisions for long hours of listening!! I hope you enjoy as much as We do :)
Unlimited is stupid
by c0ntentc0p6669 on 2020/09/23 18:05
Truly a great app, but just get rid of music unlimited. I have prime, what more do you want from me?
What happened to the app?!?
by RSMU000007 on 2020/09/23 17:38
First off downloaded new Apple IOS on iPhone and then updated Amazon music...should of just stayed with old version. App randomly crashes now, the search feature is TERRIBLE...if I want to search for a song in my library, I have to go to filter and toggle on for EVERY search. It should either stay on or be a simple toggle that I don’t have to navigate to a filter page and then back to search. Please fix this!!
Apple Watch/Siri comparable
by Lizzabeth999 on 2020/09/23 17:23
I get that they’re competing AI’s but the ONLY thing I’d change about Apple Music is that it could have an Apple Watch app... I use my Alexa’s to stream music at home, Amazon Music and Sirius XM in my car... now I just need it on my watch!!
Great app...

Not as good as Spotify
by Mighty Oregon on 2020/09/23 15:26
AM is decent, I mean most songs are on Amazon Music Unlimited which you have to pay for. And Spotify has way more songs. It’s not as good as Spotify but be honest peeps, nothing really is.
Love amazon music!
by tmcgov200 on 2020/09/23 15:26

Great App but could use improvements
by National man😏 on 2020/09/23 14:06
i really like this app and i am subscribed to amazon unlimited. i dont have too many complaints but i think the community is a little sad. Spotify has the best community by far and i really hope amazon can make the community a little more vibrant and fun. over all great app but i wouldn’t really pay for the unlimited.
Poor Update
by katmcsplat on 2020/09/23 13:43
The app playback button disappears completely from iPhone. You can’t stop the app from playing music without force closing the app. It doesn’t respond to headphone buttons as well.

Impossible to preview songs for download
by rachi h on 2020/09/23 11:56
Used to love this app until they made it impossible to preview songs for download. They are pushing their unlimited streaming which I don’t prefer. I just want to preview songs before I buy them. I want to listen to the song I want to listen to. I don’t want to stream everything but the song I want. That’s what I like Pandora for. Not amazon music.
Great app!
by dikeeny on 2020/09/23 10:37
Great to use while at the gym and at work!!
Could be better
by xNeonxClearx on 2020/09/23 07:52
There have always been a lot of bugs in the app, they usually fix them pretty quick though. The worst thing about the app is their decision to remove the back button from the lock screen. Now when I am using the app while driving, I would have to unlock my phone to back up a song. That makes it a bit less safe to use while driving. And less convenient to use while not driving. I want my back button returned to me
Good catalog, mediocre app functionality
by az837183 on 2020/09/23 07:14
Does not measure up to the best in terms of music discovery, information, music navigation. It is like a warehouse - lots of stuff, but no polish. I rate it even lower than before. Out of place podcasts, but no option to browse new album releases. Songs disappear from playlists or are replaced by non related ones. Song recognition only through Alexa... which will never be active on any device in our household... at least not knowingly. If not for the extensive catalog and HD streaming I would have dropped the service in a heartbeat. Sadly Apple or Spotify do not provide CD/HD options. I guess the majority of people listen to music only on their phones...
Great music selection with no commercials
by cadutchman on 2020/09/23 06:34
I love the broad selection of music available. I like many genres so this is a great place to explore new music. Of course I love the oldies too. My only criticism is no Led Zeppelin on prime only premium, which doesn’t fit into my budget. LOL, peace out! 😎🎸🎸🇺🇸
Sorting music under each playlist
by Cunbali on 2020/09/23 05:48
There needs to be a way to arrange each music on your playlist. ie; move a song from the number 1 spot to another spot the way Apple & YouTube can. Also, a way to see if a music already downloaded is in your library. Another disappointment is, too many re-mastered songs. You should have the original song by the original artist and not more remastered or live current artist 10-30 years past their original. Not interested. Library isn’t as large as Apple or YouTube unless you include all your duplicate and remastered same songs. Thank you.
Excellent music app
by Tot4499 on 2020/09/23 05:09
I absolutely love the Amazon music app. It’s my primary music application. I especially enjoy the many features that the application offers. I strongly recommend this app. It's definitely a 5-star music application.
Glitchy app with annoying popups.

Glitchy, crappie app with constant popups. It’s free but very annoying.
Great Streaming App
by 100codeblue on 2020/09/23 05:00
I use the app all day to listen to my music and discover new music. The new update did create a small issue and I wanted to talk about it so Amazon Music is aware. When you are listening to music and using other apps, it now messes with the app. When I go back to the app, the bar that shows the song name and option to play/next song goes away and when you press next song on the iphone widget or in the car or with the earphone buttons, the app doesn't respond. You have to reset the app. It happens quite often since the update. Literally other than that, EVERYTHING else is great. 👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿

Need a play bar
by SurprenantR on 2020/09/23 03:24
If I accidentally touch the screen I can’t find what I’m listening to. I need a play bar to always be there. Something that’s always there. So frustrating to have to start over, because that is the only way I know to get back to the song I was listening to.

Great music when it works
by nut0077 on 2020/09/23 01:13
I love the ease of Amazon Music however it constantly freezes up or shuts down. It takes several minutes just to get it to play at times. Sometimes it’s just not worth all the trouble.

by DanielMcHaney on 2020/09/23 00:26
My biggest complaint is sometimes the music doesn't play and only offline mode works, it's annoying. I have to close the app And re-open it for it to connect. I also do not like that the album cover art is darkened and gets covered up by action buttons.
Awesome, but 1 thing needs added
by Harper4Ever on 2020/09/23 00:22
I love Amazon Music it’s really the best music platform. All I want is there to be a profiles. I want where you can have like this is Jimmys profile and this is johns profile. Because having 1 profile and 5 people in my family it makes it hard to find my music that I forgot the name of because I have too look through like 1000 different artists. It would be a lot easier for me too just go to my profile and listen to my music.
Music
by ktkev4ever on 2020/09/23 00:15
Love all the songs. Very seldom do I not find a song I’m looking for. Or unless it’s a chargeable song, which I still can’t afford in which case I just go to YouTube. (sorry) I I love the soundtracks it makes for me on a daily basis, using my music choices as it’s “soundingboard” very cool!
This is the best for me....
by sassy4mp on 2020/08/19 17:33
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!!
Decent , but could be better
by REEbeachbabe on 2020/01/22 17:15
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.
Great app, but needs a couple upgrades
by Googlaholic on 2020/08/22 07:29
Never in my life have I had access to so much great music—AM has transformed my life. I know that sounds a bit melodramatic, but growing up and throughout my adulthood, I didn’t have the money to buy albums. I’d listen to what was on the radio to and from work, but I never really **listened** to music. AM and my Echo devices have changed that. Now, I listen to a new artist every night and have learned that I really like listening to music in the same way I love to read—it feeds my soul. I just hadn’t realized that until I had unlimited access to every genre and artist pretty much on the planet. That said, there are two things I wish were part of the AM app. First, there needs to be a way to rate artists, albums, and songs, as you can in iTunes. I listen to so many new things, it’s hard to keep track of what I like. Second, I need some way to easily remove songs from my phone without changing my music content. I guess it’s possible there is an easy way to free up space without having to go song by song and without taking the music out of **my content**. But I haven’t found it. When these two issues are addressed I will gladly increase my rating to five stars.
Keep listening feedback is annoying
by HillaryLaweeze on 2020/05/19 15:37
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.
Good but can be better
by Colbat King on 2020/04/07 23:38
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.
Possibly the most frustrating music app
by Floody85 on 2019/06/06 01:50
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
Best music app! Would give 4.5 stars!
by SodaPopBears on 2019/04/24 11:23
I love this app! There's a few bugs but for the most part the app runs well. Rarely do I have to skip songs to get it to continue playing; sometimes it forgets where it's at in the song once I've hit paused so it'll replay from the beginning but I don't mind that. I love that I can listen to just about whatever I want for free. I just wish you could customize stations or that it was easier to find specific stations (There may be a way and I just haven't found it yet). I'd like to have an 80s, 90s, and today station just because it's all my favorite at one time. Oh well, I'm enjoying my random solely 80s music days so it's good. I also like the exposure to new music as well. Overall, love this app; very minimal complaints. I'd give 4.5 stars if I could. Reduced to 3 stars. The has gotten buggy. It crashes every so often and takes several tries to restart it. I still like the ease of use and it's the only app I use for music however I'd like to see some updates pertaining to customer complaints. Back to 4 stars. Fewer crashes! Some bugs still when paired with Bluetooth but overall a great app
I like but let’s talk
by Shaolins Own on 2019/01/01 23:02
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.
Station/connection issues
by Kvlard on 2020/04/08 14:50
I use this daily. I enjoy the use of it and have for some time now. There are some issues that I am noticing recently. My stations will often drop multiple times with no reason I could find. It’s pretty annoying to have to start a station, or playlist over again after dropped within short periods of time. PC version drops less often as iPhone, but still occurs. I have a few issues with the interface of this app. Song choice is difficult to find. Scrolling through all songs to find one (same with artist/album choice) is cumbersome and takes a while. When choosing to play a certain artist in my library, I can’t figure out how to play all that artists songs, only one album at a time. Might just be me not knowing how but that is really challenging my patience right now. When searching for stations/artists on prime music (versus library), irrelevant options come up. During station play, songs that are not matching genre or artist choice plays. I continue to use it as my main source of music player online/app, but am looking into other options because of issues listed above.
Great, but not always
by SaViSe on 2020/01/24 17:32
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!
by kelsarro on 2019/11/24 21:16
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.
New Update RUINED IT!!
by AlicksterJ on 2019/09/03 05:26
This is a great app! I can’t deny that it is extremely useful and easy to use— and is ideal for anyone who likes to listen to music on the go— however, after updating to the most recent version of the app, I have found that after a mandatory refresh, all my music was GONE! I had downloaded well over 3,000 songs (as an Unlimited subscriber) and was very disappointed to find all that gone. Not only that, but every thirty seconds the app crashes and restarts— making it to where it would be virtually impossible to re-download all those missing songs unless I had god-speed wifi, which, I regret to inform you, I do not have. I hope this is not the case through every device using the app, but it is the case for me and it is very disheartening, as I do not have data on my device and cannot access wifi 24/7 to where I could simply use it without downloads. All I ask is that the crashing gets resolved. Restarting my device did not help, either, so I believe it is the app itself. But also, please do not remove all of one’s offline music in the next update please. 🙏
Listen every day
by Jfzxbuhgvv567 on 2019/02/21 12:56
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.
Mostly Doesn’t Work
by JenkinsJ on 2020/06/15 04:16
I wish I could give this app a better rating but I just can’t. It barely works with CarPlay. I have a 2019 Honda and trying to use the interface through CarPlay is frustrating. I’ll try to queue up music I’ve listened to before using the interface and some songs play. Some don’t. I have to use the app to make the song play. Trying to find songs I want to play is frustrating. The only option on CarPlay is to scroll through every song or album on my songs until I find the one I want. Search feature? Apple Music gives me a way to at least get to the first letter. Recently played is hit or miss. Many times, songs I listened to in the car yesterday are missing from recently played. I’ll be listening to music and all of sudden the bass just disappears and I’m hearing the tweeters and possibly the midrange with no base. The only way I have found to fix this is to unplug it from CarPlay and then plug it back in. Most times that works but sometimes it doesn’t. It only resets after the car has been turned off and restarted. I tried reinstalling the app and reinstalling it but that hasn’t fixed the problems. Really not sure why this app is so bad. I think you can do better.
Great!... But One problem
by Carleigh Hare😜🤣🥳😍 on 2020/08/07 22:18
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.
by glevumguy on 2020/07/29 16:42
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
by Fancythat918 on 2020/08/04 05:10
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
by Fulano2 on 2019/05/04 17:27
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.
Great all in all, but a few glitches.
by Keeping this name anonymous on 2020/09/10 15:35
I love this app. I’ll say that first. It has all of my favorite artists, and such a large selection of songs/albums. I can download music, create playlists, all the things I need for a streaming service. However, this app isn’t without its flaws. Sometimes you can’t go back to a certain part without starting the song over. If you pause a song and start it again it might stop making sound but look like it’s still playing. (It’s not, pause it and it fixes itself.) The app crashes a lot, mostly if you’re not in the app at the moment. That’s the most frustrating of all of them, as it starts whatever song you were playing over. (But not the album, play queue or playlist. It will shut down radio stations, however.) I’d like to mention that I saw a review saying you couldn’t make play queues or play a single song on loop. This is not the case. I don’t know if that was a patch or something, but I’ve always been able to play one song on loop. Perhaps it’s a difference between phone models, but I’m on a 6 and it works just fine. I don’t see why it wouldn’t on later phones. All in all I really like the app, and it’s by far the best streaming service I’ve used. The issues I listed may look like a lot, but really they’re small and easy to deal with. I seriously recommend AM. I hope this helps!
Previously great, currently not so much
by CrappyAppgfdssfhjdsdf on 2019/10/08 19:29
Love this app and use it regularly with my bluetooth in my car since i drive alot. Since the last update, it seems they have limited the number of suggested songs for you. Before, i could open that section and keep hitting the show more button and then play through the list of 200+ songs and find new songs i like. Now, it shows maybe 50 songs and doesnt allow you to show more. Another major gripe for me is when someone calls me while connected to bluetooth while the music is playing, the sound changes until i exit out of the app and restart. If i do not do this then the music sounds like i am listening to it through a phone call. Similar to music playing in the background of a phone call when you are placed on hold. Happens everytime and it gets old having to clear the app out of my background and restart it after every phonecall. This didnt occur until the latest update so I hope its fixed. Would have gave 5 stars prior to this
Like it
by Roamingricky on 2019/04/01 14:36
So far it’s working out well, I do like the Alexa feature, but it doesn’t work when my iPad isn't active so you still have to push buttons. LOL. So far I’ve been able to find all the music I have been looking for, time will tell, can’t give them five stars because there’s always room for improvement in the structure of the app. For example if you go to play Lady Gaga, it will only play the same four songs over and over until you actually go and open it up and make them play the full playlist, that seems like a waste of time, who would ask to play Lady Gaga and only want the same four songs? Should just give u the full list right off. Some of the other controls and features take a while to hunt and peck to find as well, some work on the user-friendly interface wouldn’t hurt. Overall for the music that I listen to, I don’t find the monthly subscription fee overly excessive. I will continue to enjoy your product. Thank you
It’s Great, But....
by Phillybobjr on 2020/02/25 04:32
I love the app and I’m so happy to finally have an app to get all my music, my only complaint is that they don’t have every song I want. Like some of my songs I understand why they don’t have, they’re not from a super famous artists, but then there’s others. One example is the song Tonight (I’m Loving You) by Enrique Iglesias, I cant find it, and I do understand it’s not the original version of what I understand but I don’t get why it’s not there. Like with Enrique there’s some other artist that the one song I wanted from them isn’t there (ex. Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, by Set it off). And the worst of it isn’t that the song just isn’t their. It’s that there’s always some weird parody of the song that doesn’t sound good, this is my one complaint, so if they’re could be a way to possibly request songs to add to the carts library of music it would be perfect.
Almost great
by flashylady on 2018/04/16 12:35
I like having music whether I'm on WIF or offline. Tons of songs, artists,etc. My issue is after I've created a playlist - I can't change location where the song is in the playlist. I now have favorite songs I'd like to slide up higher in the list but since they were added last....I can't. I have to create a new play list :( There are times where I want to hear certain songs but the only choice is shuffle. Why can't I press a song & slide it up or down? It would be nice to also copy & paste same song in same playlist to hear it twice. Can't do that either. *Note - after having an awesome offline playlist for almost a year, I went I to the app and got a message that my playlist had expired! Had to start all over downloading my online music (playlists were not the same). Both my iPad and phone had the same issue a couple months apart. SO, make sure your online playlist has the same music you want offline.
Overall pretty decent
by Kendykai on 2019/08/03 06:17
I like it so far. I kind of think it’s wack that there’s an additional fee on top of the prime membership fee- but the app has most every song I’ve looked up so far. I would say- I think that I don’t care for the mixes they produce. Maybe it’s me, but I find the platform a little challenging to use to narrow down recommendations based on my specific tastes. I really liked how pandora does that. However- one of the main selling points for prime music was we could hook it to our echo dot and basically just ask Alexa to play us any song at any time. It’s great! I also love it because when I’m in the car using my Bluetooth, I can just leave the app open on my phone, set the phone down, and just ask Alexa to play me whatever song I wanted to hear. Much less annoying than random stations or pre making playlists. So that’s the main reason I stay- Alexa is far superior and I gotta be safe while I’m driving 🤷🏼‍♀️. Hope this helps!
Still a few basic features missing.
by Hawks fan #4517 on 2018/12/25 03:51
Playlists that auto switch to offline content when connectivity fails to meet streaming needs. Generated playlists of content based on listening preferences and played tracks (hint if I listen longer, I like the music). Simpler switching between Alexa devices, Bluetooth, airplay etc , right now I have to push the disconnect button to get the Apple contextual menu to change BT devices. And lastly, better discoverability of the music I’ve added to my account based on my premium account. It’s difficult to find all the tracks I’ve added to my account in the past 6 months etc. Also some sort of iconography to let me know when an interrupt of audio will happen. When u tap on a station it immediately switches, but when you tap on a playlist you get a contextual menu. This means that whilst DJ’ing with the app, you have to know where the stations are vs the playlists to avoid gaps in music.
Problems keep it from being great
by small hobbit on 2019/12/09 15:55
I like to download music; this is because I’m not always on wi-fi, and still use an iPod Touch. The problem is there doesn’t seem to be a clear way to delete downloaded songs from the device. This causes bloat as songs that I no longer want downloaded are seemingly stuck. Another issue I have, that honestly isn’t as major, is that if I try to update a downloaded playlist instead of overwriting the existing downloaded version it makes a new numerical numbered playlist (so it creates a “playlist 1” instead of overwriting the playlist there) Not as big of an issue since playlists can easily be deleted, it’s just annoying. I’m also strangely getting different suggestions in the web version than I am in the app; I do like both kinds, I just can’t figure out why these are different and why I can’t get the suggestions I’m getting on the website in the app. This is because the ONLY suggestions I’ve been getting in app are alternative, which is okay, but is far from the only bands I listen to.
Great app - Minor improvements still needed
by JPDoesNotLikeU on 2019/03/31 15:38
Overall, the app functions well and the music selection is fantastic. I have yet to search for a song that I could not find. A couple of small improvements that could make this app 5 Star for me would be: Ability to sort the song orders on the playlists I create. Always having the first song I put on the playlist is not ideal. I would prefer to have the last song added on the top and the first song added on the bottom, that way I hear the newest music first. Other sort filters could include sort by number of times played, release date, and of course date added. Another needed improvement is that when a song is removed, rather than just sitting grayed out on my playlist, the song should be replaced with a working version of the same title and artist (ie replace the removed Everything I Need by Skylar Gray with a working version of Everything I Need by Skylar Gray).
Music quality A++ but a few fixes would make it 5 stars
by ACGoris on 2020/03/05 16:18
The good: pretty broad selection, lots of ultra-HD, and the sound is great. The medium: some of the ultra-HD of old classic rock has been remixed. In some cases this is good when some bass has been added back in that wasn’t possible in the original due to the dynamic range limitations of vinyl. In some cases the bass is a little over done, but still probably a little better than the original. In other mixes, it just doesn’t sound quite right, since the original art was the product of the musicians and the mixers at the time. When this happens, the feel is similar to watching a colorized veesion of a classic black-and-white film. Needs work: The user interface is clunky; search often misses songs you’re looking for,so you have to try different ways of getting to what you want, and when listening in the car, the iPhone app hangs when you lose service and often doesn’t resume playing once you have service again.
They should be able to get it right!
by G.Hill on 2020/08/23 21:39
For one of the largest companies in the world they really should be able to figure this out and have the best working product; but they haven’t. The app easily gets confused, disconnects from or won’t disconnect from my Alexa powered speaker. It then says that you have multiple connections to the app and won’t disconnect properly. I have to do a series of steps to straighten it out. Just like Apple; I really don’t think real people test out their own product enough. I don’t use Apple Music so I don’t really have that to compare the two and that’s why I gave 2 stars instead of 1. When I’m on my WiFi at home (even after I deleted and reinstalled the app like they told me to do) the music sometimes speeds up like chipmunks or slows way down (usually at a really good part of the song). From my point of view; the technology is there enough for the music to pre-buffer if you will; so that it is guaranteed to not change speeds like that. It’s okay but I don’t think I’ll keep it much longer.
Pretty good selection, Pathetic touch Performance
by ChemTunes on 2019/12/31 16:58
I am pleased you can download original recordings from many favorite musicians (not all, however, and if you have downloaded or added musicians to your playlists, sometimes they disappear due to requiring Unmlimited). The navigation during workouts is not convenient unless you create a playlist). Most people rely on using their smartphones inside a case during exercise. It's completely useless if you have to stop to take your phone out of the case in order to use your bare finger. SHOWSTOPPER! The worst part is if you don’t have Unlimited, the app makes you cancel the pop up ad every single time. So you have more delays getting started. So I only use it indoors when I know I have WiFi and I don’t need to fumble with gloves to reconnect or advance a song, hit forward if it has stopped for some reason (connection? Picks up Nearby car Bluetooth?). I also use a wired earphone in one ear to also avoid Bluetooth interference.
How is this not better
by Laurie417 on 2020/09/23 20:04
I’ve been using the free version for some time and adjusted to the lack of good songs because I had a variety still. I mad my favorites playlist and shuffle that daily. Over 7hrs current. Now I obviously like these songs and have little to no reason to skip a song. The “Are you listening” prompt gets quite irritating every hour when I don’t want to take actions within this playlist. Extend the time frame or do away with it. Add a 10 sec commercial if it helps. Just upgraded to the free trial, mostly because I was bombarded with offers all day every day for the last year...Finally gave in. But on a side note, if I say not interested, could you give it a break til next month? I’m already hating the upgrade. My 7hr playlist will suddenly stop playing, currently playing disappears and I have to select shuffle again. Shouldn’t I have unlimited play? I know it hasn’t played through as I’ve restarted 3 times today in a short time. At this rate I’ll go back to free or another service for less fee.
Turn off the TV get back to Music
by SonyAlphaShooter on 2018/11/18 09:10
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 Unlimited 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.
Not working
by KLP❤️music on 2019/08/31 12:11
I’ve had an Unlimited music subscription for a while now and it’s always worked 90% of the places where I use my phone, mostly in the car. As of about a week or so ago it started not working most of the time. I primarily use it around the same areas such as home and my drive to and from work and it keeps going to offline mode and spends a lot of time buffering! I generally don’t stray too far out of the same areas where it used to work and now doesn’t more often than not! It’s very frustrating to say the least. I didn’t change my cell provider (AT&T) and I tried turning off my phone, deleting and reloading the app because I really thought it was something with my phone, come to find out my daughter is having the same issue with her app! We both have iPhones - one is an 8+ and the other an X and they are fairly new phones. Bottom line, I would’ve given it a 5 star rating if I didn’t have all these recent issues.
Love it, but app has some quirks
by VT_Freshy on 2020/02/05 14:32
This is really a 4.5 star rating, but rounding. I’ve been a Prime member for about 15 years now and have had the Music app for about 3 with Unlimited. Love the service, but the app has been significantly slower recently when accessing music, beginning mid to late 2019. Another issue with the app is that your offline and online playlists don’t sync. If you make one offline, it should copy the list to online when you connect, so that you can play it through your Echo devices - by it doesn’t. Same goes for making one online, it is not accessible when I’m offline mode, regardless of whether individual songs are downloaded. Would love to see this simple improvement made, as well as a return to more responsive operation such as not taking 30 seconds in some cases to start a song that is on the device.
Area To Improve
by Butuandan on 2019/09/01 03:22
Offline playlist setup not as user friendly. Please improve your service because internet connection is sometimes unreliable. Also, it would help a lot when I am on airplane mode. Thanks. You need to add better dialogue with your user when he accesses different pages. I am left guessing because many of the subsequent steps are hidden. Keep testing your system and analyze the clicks of your new users and trace the ways by which you could make your app friendlier. Please. September 1, 2019: I noticed improvements. Thanks. Invite communities of testers. From teenagers to parents to seniors, let them navigate your dialogues when selecting songs to downloading them while on offline mode. You need to learn from their mistakes thus allowing you to design your improvements where it is needed. More needs to be done. You are not there yet. Good luck.
LOVE THIS!
by Rooster-817 on 2020/03/01 03:55
I’ve been skeptical about all the different ways to spend my money online and through social media. I’ve had more negative experiences than positive ones. Negative: my grandchildren moved 250 miles away from me. Positive: last weekend was the most enjoyable trip I’ve ever had to Oklahoma City because I was able to choose the songs, CDs, and or artists of my preference. Albert Einstein‘s time space continuum went out the window and I traveled from Fort Worth to Oklahoma City in about 30 minutes. I really can’t tell you how any other music platform compares because this is the first one I’ve tried but I sure do like it. Update: One year later & Im canceling satellite radio... This is all I need... Bummer, driving through he mountains caused lost signal with AT&T; one point for sat radio, but not Amazon’s fault. Have since learned off line mode... 5 Stars.
Daily app for my daily jams. Better than other streaming services.
by ethasp on 2019/03/15 03:49
Downloaded anything I wanted with no issues. Being able to download music makes it great for not using data when out and about. Ive downloaded over 12 GBs of music on my phone and the sound quality is great, and in many cases, much better than streaming services. The UI could use a little work and I wish my offline playlists could be copied to an online playlist. That way I could use the playlists I normally use easier with our fire stick or Alexa. Occasionally, licensing expires for music and it can become unavailable. It doesn’t matter how popular of a song it is, it can happen. Maybe a warning could help this be less of a surprise or maybe it could let you know when or if that music becomes available again...
Frustrating
by TheRealCombat on 2019/10/01 15:37
As long as you are in a good service area it’s fine. However, the second it has a network connection issue it just gives up and stops playing music. Even if the song is already fully buffered! This is really annoying when driving through rural areas. It will randomly quit playing and pop up a modal window saying there was a network connection issue and to retry again later with a stronger connection. It does this when I have service and I can even watch the buffer continue to load in the background. Pressing play does not resume playing at this point, instead you have to skip the song to get it going again. When I’m working on a project in my shop I’m at the limit of my home WiFi. My phone will bounce around between LTE and WiFi. It seems to cause this app to just randomly stop playing. It doesn’t display a message saying why, it just stops playing. It’s always right after I get my hands dirty and don’t want to touch my phone. I mean, come on... 😕
Solid music app
by QueentoBishop on 2020/03/04 04:37
Could use a more extensive selection of songs; a few soundtracks I would love to be able to put in playlists are missing, although they are fairly obscure. The soundtracks to Holloknight and GATTACA, for example, can only be found as piano covers. The algorithms in the radio stations run the same few songs over and over again. And the app quits, oftentimes, with a direct connection in the car. The music stops, and a check of the phone shows that the app has closed itself out. The car is as likely to blame as the app, in these situations. But, all that being said, there is more than enough music on the app to satisfy an audience of even the most eclectic tastes. I have been able to find new music I love on here, and have very much been enjoying using it for the past couple of months.
Unlimited too expensive
by BlueTrap28 on 2018/12/23 21:09
I have had this app for a couple years now and I use it almost everyday. It has the songs I love and the layout of the entire thing is simple and easy to use. But the music unlimited is driving me crazy, I get it you want more of us to pay even more money to listen to more music I got the message. But it is really messed up when you take away our songs. What I mean by that is one time I was listening to Get free by Major Lazor for a couple months and one day it wouldn’t let me play it anymore, it’s been moved to unlimited. This wouldn’t be huge except for how expensive unlimited is ON TOP of my $130 Prime membership. Last I checked, it was all or nothing, only two people in my family use prime music so I don’t need any more than 2 users but it’s nothing or whole family for almost $20/mo with taxes. I’m just not having it. I’ve cancelled my auto renewal for prime and I just refuse to give them another $1 at this point.
pretty good but could use improvement
by rachel is the best at bedwars on 2020/05/17 22:47
i love how most of the songs are available for me to use without paying for unlimited (i am both unwilling and unable to) but i have a few complaints. 1) moving songs in a playlist is hard. whenever you add a new song it goes all the way to the bottom and the only way you can rearrange things is remove them and add them back in the order you want 2) one song i had on the playlist (let’s call it A and the artist is B) when i searched for A, i could see it was by B and even when i saw it in the album i could see B’s name. but when i put that specific song (A) in my playlist, i could not see that the song was by B. it said “unknown artist” but it’s clearly known because it shows it elsewhere 3) sometimes the audio goes out, but it might be due to other reasons (my headphones, my family screaming in the background, or my internet connection). i think it’s mostly due to those reasons and not the app. however, when i leave the app for too long, the song that hadn’t finished starts over. 4) some songs on one album have lyrics shown, and others on the same album don’t?? why is that, why can’t y’all be consistent? not that big of a deal though otherwise it’s a pretty great app and i love listening to my favorite artists there without having to pay for everything
Good music with a lot of choices
by Yovdakeeya on 2020/02/03 23:02
I really like Prime Music. They have lots of choices including many full albums. However, there are 2 downfalls: 1. The music stops if more than one device is playing. It didn’t do this before and it’s very frustrating. 2. They are obnoxiously persistent in trying to push their more expensive unlimited version. Often they will obstruct the ability to go directly to Prime Music—instead, making you opt out of the higher cost unlimited version. Several times, when I opted out of the unlimited, instead of directing me to Prime Music it would just take me back to the previous screen. I’ve been a Prime member for several years and it started doing this a few months ago. Prime Music is not a free service. There is a monthly fee. For that reason alone, they should make it easy to use and not try to force you to use the more expensive version.
Alright, removes music and really makes you want unlimited
by TelMinz on 2019/02/17 03:35
The song selection is pretty good with out paying the premium for unlimited. If your just looking for an app to just play random music, there’s probably better options out there. I wouldn’t know. I’ve never tried them really. The only thing I don’t like. This app has a habit of removing music that’s is in your library. Royalties change all the time, I get it, but you can sometimes search for the song the next week and it’s available again, usually never again tho. Upgrade to prime if you love music tho, worth it imo. Every song *almost*. Obscure tracks that release on underground/bootleg don’t usually show up. But other than that I’ve had pretty good luck. I’ll give more feedback after I’ve used unlimited for several months+. I had prime only for years and just got unlimited. Enjoying it so far.
3 star app Begs for a 5 star review
by A3A2A4 on 2020/01/02 14:39
Overall, the app is okay. I can find most music I want. But it is hard work to use. You can't add songs from one playlist to another. if you have it in offline mode and no internet connection, it still has a pop up that tells you to go into your WiFi settings and turn it on, which is annoying. It's difficult to delete music from your phone, you have to delete each individual song, there isn't select option to delete multiple songs. It's tricky to understand exactly what is offline and online. And even if a song is offline and down a loaded, if it is on a playlist that isn't flagged as "offline" it won't play. If you download a pre organized playlist, you can't edit or add new music, you have to add the playlist to the queue, add songs, save it as a new playlist which can crash the app. So while it's functional, it's not the most convenient.
good but....
by LMT, NMT on 2020/09/11 12:38
I loved this app when I first started using it. (I use mostly during my massage sessions). I would turn it on and it would play all day. Now I can not turn it on before a session because it will stop playing during my sessions ( it will only play 50 to 60 min. And ask are you still listening? I have to take my hands off the client to turn back on the music. This is not cool at all. I really like the variety music I can play but.... having to turn it back on during a session has turned me off. It would ok if I only did 30 min session but I do, offer 1 hour, 1 1/2 hour and 2 hour session. I have to use ITunes for those and that gets boring listening to the same music all the time. Please fix the app so that it will play at least 5 to 6 hours ( I listen to it between clients as well) before asking are you still listening. If that where fixed it would definitely be 5 stars!!
Latest update stuck on splash screen!
by MCC Fan on 2019/07/27 09:19
The latest update from the 26th kept freezing on the startup/splash screen and I couldn’t revert to the old version so I had to uninstall and reinstall the app. Unfortunately, when I did that it deleted all of the Offline Playlists that I’ve been making over the past year or so. That’s a lot to loose and there doesn’t seem to be any way to get them back. You all should have fixed the problem and put out an update so this kind of thing didn’t happen. Now what am I supposed to do? Go back through and try to remember all the different playlists I made? That’ll take me another year and a half. So annoying. Can’t believe I pay so much for this kind of crap. It’s not fair to pay so much and loose playlists, have content disappear, wrong song and lyric information, as well as not being able to add my own songs and your library not having as much of a variety as you claim!! Ridiculous!!! Please do something about this before more people like me loose all their playlists!!!
good app, but super frustrating
by esowers4 on 2020/05/04 01:56
This app works well for listening to music if you have unlimited. Finding songs isn’t incredibly difficult and it’s really easy for making playlists. Here is my problem: I have a playlist with 300+ songs and frequently put it on shuffle. The design of the app is set up so that the download button is right next to the shuffle button. This is incredibly bad design because when you go to click shuffle, you accidentally download 300 songs. The worst part is, there is no cancel button! You can’t cancel this MASSIVE download of songs off of the app! There should at least be a cancel button so if you accidentally click download, you don’t have to sit there and let it take up all your storage space. Better yet: don’t put the download button right at the top of the playlist! This is horrible design on amazons part and should seriously be improved.
Overall great but needs some tweaks
by Emma❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤 on 2018/11/05 20:08
So I’ve been using this app for around 3 years and I have never experienced anything like what is happening right now, for some reason I can not listen to any music. When ever I go to tap play it switches to the next song and just automatically goes on and on and doesn’t stop going!!!! It’s getting really annoying! Overall the app is amazing and has restrictions for kids I which is amazing. One thing I don’t like is that you have to pay for some music and it’s not like it’s just the bad music it’s the most listened to music, and the music that I listen to. I wish that maybe you don’t have to pay or at least get a couple free of your choice each month or so. That would make my experience much better. Also is the app had a new update to fix what ever is wrong with the app because I use this app everyday for 2+ hours, so it would really help to fix the app!! Thank you!!
Hearing damage free Drive must mean free hearing damage
by very concerned long-term user on 2019/01/20 03:33
IMDb Freedive First off I would like to say that I have nothing against commercials or ads I even enjoy some commercials and some ads but when you turn up the volume so loud that you could give someone hearing damage because you turn it up The volume up right when the commercial comes on so much you’re liable to get sued by a class-action lawsuit this is very serious there’s already been laws passed preventing you from doing this but company still insist on being reckless and irresponsible And downright greedy I will never buy a single product advertised by any ad that you turn the volume up on ever the people who make the ads should also sue you and not pay you any money whatsoever. Also I’m going to start a list of every ad on free drive and contact each advertiser and tell them to pull the plug on you. I don’t see how you think by turning the volume up on ads it will help you sell items because it’s made me so upset that I will never buy a product on any of your commercials
