Not working well

Honest Truth: It needs an overhaul
by Irvin (KC) on 2022/05/23 23:30
As a Prime customer, I really wanted to rely on Amazon Music [Unlimited] as my default music streaming service, especially because I’m deep in the Amazon Prime ecosystem and own many Amazon devices, but the lower quality customer user experience, it’s limitations and errors make the extra Amazon add-on subscription not worth using nor paying for. For example, in the “Latest” section for Podcasts, it often, in error, neglects new episodes that I follow, so I have to go to the podcast Show itself to seek the new episodes that are supposed to show up on “Latest.” Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Pandora do not have these issues. The user interface is clunky, crowded, messy and unfocused. Many Podcasts and songs available on YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music don’t exist on Amazon Music Unlimited. Amazon is currently investing and focusing on improving Prime Video, and it seems that it’s Music service and it’s Luna Cloud Gaming services are not well funded or are not as important to Amazon. As a result, Amazon Music is just an afterthought to Amazon, and the customers can feel it. Customers vote with their dollars, and it’s going into Spotify’s and Apple‘s pockets. Even though Amazon Music Unlimited is treated as an afterthought by Amazon, it costs equally to superior music services. Why pay the same price to an inferior service if you can receive better elsewhere? Not to mention that Pandora music is completely free to listen and use (with Ads). There is currently no Feedback section to improve the music service and experience for paying customers.

So annoyed
by Reese_8081 on 2022/05/23 14:35
Every single time I want to listen to a song it is on unlimited every single song is on unlimited I am about to delete the app because of this!
Still needs some improvement
by smurf72 on 2022/05/23 12:28
4/5/22 - I love this app. It is one of the most used apps on my phone. But even after the last update just a few days ago, it is still playing song with similar words in the title one after the other. I play my music on shuffle, and I do have some duplicates. So when it plays the same song 2 or 3 times in a row, it gets kind of annoying. Yes, I could delete the duplicates, but it still plays song with similar words in the song title righ after each other. It would also be nice if I could remove a song from my library on the same screen as the song is playing. Instead I have to hunt for the option. Please make these changes in the next update and I’ll change to 5 stars. Update 4/19/22 - In addition to the above, now it plays in alphabetical order from wherever it starts. Seriously?! Changed my score to 2 stars. Come on Amazon! Are you reading these? Update 5/20/22: Last app update was 5/16/22. Still having the issues stated above. Changed rating to 1 star. Will change back to 5 once the above issues are fixed. If they ever are. UPDATE MAY 23, 2022: FINALLY! The above issues are fixed! Except I STILL can’t delete a song from the play screen. 4 stars.
Censoring
by Mikey_08 on 2022/05/23 11:57
I don’t understand why my music is being censored if I downloaded the explicit version of the song. There’s a clean version and an explicit version, please fix this so I don’t have to find a new app because I really like this app. Thank you

by 💕to surf on 2022/05/22 20:45
Amazon music is the best music app out there in my opinion. It has so many songs and pieces together all your favorite songs to create playlists that match your current style of music! One thing that would make it even better is if it had not just music videos, but for all the songs from movies and tv shows, it had a video of the scene that they are singing the song in. That would be awesome!
Don’t waste your time literally
by don't take away my prime on 2022/05/22 15:15
I spent hours putting together a good playlist. Now they’re taking my favorite songs and putting them in a new category called unlimited and want me to pay extra for it. We’re already paying a fee for Amazon prime. They’re doing the same crap where they’re streaming movies and TV. It’s not like Amazon doesn’t already have half the money in the world. I say let them play with their self

User-hostile interface changes
by cr0nd on 2022/05/22 06:04
2022-05-21: A recent update seems to have removed the user interface elements that indicate an album is only available by subscribing to Amazon Music Unlimited. Now when you look at the list of albums from a particular artist, the albums requiring an Unlimited subscription are indistinguishable from those available via Amazon Music Prime. As a Prime subscriber, one only learns an album requires a subscription to Unlimited after you tap on it, via a prompt that has to be dismissed with a second tap. This is the kind of change made solely based on some middle manager's desire to continue hitting their target metrics, so they will get that quarterly bonus that makes their third car/second house/etc affordable, but it makes the experience objectively worse for the user. The app experience has been slowly degrading over time anyway, from the introduction of various nag screens, to the integration of podcasts intermixed with music content. This most recent change is just another step down the path of mediocrity.

Best music app 4 many reasons
by Ant@Woo on 2022/05/22 03:46
Let me explain I used every music app and no music app can touch Amazon music. I listen to a lot of music and the way Amazon plays music is amazing so if you pick a artist and hit the radio button it will play a huge section of music that is related to that artist. Okay now for my Christian Hip Hop listeners. This is the best app to listen to Christian Rap. You will be amazed

Great with a few exceptions
by catg100 on 2022/05/20 23:40
Genuinely do not understand why it does this, but it keeps deleting the first few songs from my playlists. I go to check if it’s because the music was removed from Amazon Music, but alas, it hasn’t been removed, the app just keeps glitching and removing random songs from my playlist. It’s so annoying. Update: it happened again and I’m about to rage quit. If I have to add songs back onto my playlist again I’m gonna delete the app and cry.
Wont play the right songs
by Peyton Tatum on 2022/05/20 20:55
I have tried over and over but the app won’t let me play any of my playing or the songs on them. It just starts playing random songs that I’ve never even listened to.

What happened?
by Eschiss1 on 2022/05/19 21:14
Apparently with the latest update tracks no longer play in order. When playing an album I want to hear the movements of a piece of music in order, not -skipping every other track-. Seriously? Edit: This seems to result from the right “arrows” sign having been (accidentally) activated/turned blue. It’s still weird behavior, and I’ll need to find documentation of those repeat-instruction marks.

Jump Back in….
by RoscoDetroit on 2022/05/19 16:36
I like the app, but you can’t remove a podcast or a album from the jump back in list. This so frustrating. If I don’t want to finish a podcast it’s because I don’t like it and I don’t want to finish it. Please let me remove it from this list!!!
Amazon has finally ruined this app
by dblaroche on 2022/05/19 16:27
It’s no longer possible to buy music from inside the app. The user is forced to go to the website. Often my purchased music is missing one day but appears a couple days later. They’ve done the same thing to the Audible app. Dreadful.
Algorithm change and cost increases
by Leonitus79 on 2022/05/19 14:54

Absolute trash
by Neimanator on 2022/05/18 23:06
It’s buggy, it crashes, it lags, it shuts down randomly. It’s really just a mess. I only use it as part of my prime subscription but it’s so bad I’m probably moving to another app very very soon.
Needs a lot of work I think
by san_sagar on 2022/05/18 22:28
Weird app. I add the song to my playlist then I click on the song to play but it plays some other song in place of the song that was added to the playlist. Either I am not able to understand how to operate this app or its too weird for normal user.
They don’t have many song
by fffffrrrrrrrrreeeeeddddd on 2022/05/18 22:07
Amazon music has lots of podcasts but not many songs at all. They do have do have descent podcasts but if you are looking for a music app with lots of songs I don’t suggest Amazon music.

by Muthahumpa on 2022/05/18 12:53
How hard can it be to create a truly random shuffle? EVERY time I try to listen to a playlist randomly this stupid app orders the same 10 songs to play first. REALLY infuriating.

Used to be great, now it’s not
by amyyyyyy90 on 2022/05/18 04:57
With the latest update they for some reason disabled listening to songs in order. If I click on a song in my Playlist, it starts playing another song. I want to listen to the song I clicked on, that’s why I clicked on it. Also used to be ad free because I ALREADY PAY FOR AMAZON PRIME, but it wants me upgrade to Unlimited for EVEN MORE MONEY, so it now plays ads. I used to use this app for sleep music specifically so I wouldn’t get ads. It’s not nice drifting off to sleep to peaceful music only to be woken up by an ad screaming at you to upgrade to Unlimited.

Life is better with Amazon Music
by JVV-ZVV on 2022/05/18 02:44
Been a fan of music since the 1960’s with very little interest in today’s music, but love being able to create playlists which comprise collections and genres of my interests and musical moods from the 50s to earlier 2000’s. I wish the app would let me delete a song from a playlist while listening, but it seems you have to edit the list itself… my largest playlist is just over 2000 songs, so not easy to navigate. Otherwise, love it…
Always Buffering ..
by Bellagana on 2022/05/18 02:06
Pretty much can’t use this anymore - past three months all it does it buffer. Switched to using Apple Music as default and plays no issues, when the echos are working, that is. It’s one thing after another lately with Amazon devices.

Unreliable
by at do j gf x on 2022/05/17 21:49
At first this app was way better than the other options. After several updates were released however the app started to freeze and took multiple buffers to even get through one song. This problem is so constant I can no longer tolerate to listen and have started listening to Pandora again. Since changing apps I have had no issues so I know it’s not my devices at fault. Hopefully someday the issue will get resolved.
Not Happy
by Gospel Shift on 2022/05/17 21:39
I liked Amazon music and enjoyed it for a while. I could add my songs to a very long playlist and listen to it on a long car ride. But about a few months ago my music has been disappearing from my playlist and deleted from my music so I have to keep adding them to my playlist. And now quite a few of my songs cut out and skip after 10 seconds of playing. I can’t listen to some of my music and that disappoints me.
What is going on Amazon Music???
by Accountable&Reliable on 2022/05/17 21:29
This app used to be 4 stars for me. My only problem was that when you have more than one profile the app doesn’t keep track of which person liked which song. So I would get a bunch of my husband’s song mixed in with my liked songs. Not the end of the world. Now I cannot get through a single song without it buffering many many times!! The song just stops and the little icon just spins around and around. This doesn’t happen as often on WiFi but it still happens. Why am I paying extra for family unlimited music?? This happens on my husbands phone and on our Alexa as well. Please fix!

by MAJ MacReaper on 2022/05/16 14:00
I give it 5 stars because it is so well integrated into iOS and because it does everything that I want yet doesn't tie me solely to iTunes. The only drawback is that when Prime music songs are in a playlist, and you are offline, the player hangs up until you skip forwards to the next song.

by otherisp on 2022/05/15 20:11
For some reason, every other streaming app has figured out how to resume the song or at the very least, the playlist you were on when you exited. Upon opening THIS app, however, you’re automatically subjected to one of their trash playlists that has nothing to do with what you were listening to. Moving on to an app that actually works.
🎧Best app🎧
by rosiyM2 on 2022/05/15 19:21
I have had amazon music for years and i absolutely love it. There are a few things i was hoping could be added. So first i have years worth of songs on my playlist and i don’t want to have a bunch of different playlists but sometimes i want to only hear songs from certain years they were added. Basically i wish that when you were on your playlist you can choose what year/ month you want to listen to based on when they were added to your playlist. Second i was hoping more songs could be added. But beside that this app is great and i love it.
GREAT APP
by reviewer1457893 on 2022/05/15 19:13
I love this app! it’s so easy to navigate and use. you can make playlists and search up any song/music video. it’s also great because it can stream through an alexa/echo dot.
It was good, then they nerfed it
by Katarica on 2022/05/15 18:07
I was very happy with this app for the first two months I had it. Then they updated, took away the skip buttons in the likes, took away all but one song on my favorite playlist, and made the app harder to use… I have the unlimited and it only works on one of my echos and not at all in the app. Would not recommend, about to delete.
Outstanding selection

by cheryl1073 on 2022/05/15 17:41
I would Shazam a song then buy it, can’t do that anymore. AND finding songs is difficult. Buying music should be easy and you should allow unlimited for free.. think Spotify that is what everyone else is doing because it cost $
Horrible in car play mode
by Intemperant on 2022/05/15 17:35
Buffering issues galore, forgetting where I am after I turn off the car. Even though I have many liked songs, the “liked” station seems to play only the same first 5-15 songs before it decides it’s played enough. Carplay mode is horrible.
Why???
by Clumber Lover on 2022/05/15 17:02
Amazon music is great except for 2 disturbing things. First of all you need to put the albums of a subscriber’s music in alphabetical order of the artist. The way Amazon Music has it organized is an absolute mess. Who remembers the name of an album, not many, but placed in alphabetical order of the artist the subscriber can quickly find what they are looking for!!!! Why on earth are albums suddenly removed from one’s library without warning. Upon back tracking the subscriber is told that the music is “no longer available in their area”. That makes no sense, what does that even mean. It would be nice if the subscriber was given a warning and an explanation. With some type of warning the patron could at least investigate as to whether there is a CD that could be purchased. Some fabulous music was taken from me which I can’t track. As a music aficionado I am heartbroken! Please rethink how you organize our music, or at least give us a choice!!!
Please look at this
by Julia Halloran on 2022/05/15 12:53
So I was going on to this app I absolutely love it, but I went on to listen to really good songs I found. But when I taped on it, it was playing other songs not the song I wanted to listen to. So please read and fix and I’ll love it sooo much more.

Where’s my queue?
by LaurenInPA on 2022/05/14 18:01
I wanted to listen to a handful of songs later, so I added each one to my “queue”— and I can’t for the life of me find or play my queue. In hindsight, I should have created a playlist, but why is there an option for the queue then? In general, I find the app difficult to navigate.
Are you still listening?
by jeff fuh fuh on 2022/05/14 15:07
I cannot believe how many times I try listening to this all day at work and after an hour it asked me if I’m still listening. It says you’ve been away from the app for a while. Which I haven’t and I have complained about this and wrote a review several times to no avail. I have been listening to Pandora for the last three days now. The pandora app is totally free with commercials. I don’t mind the commercials as long as I can listen to it without having to babysit my phone every hour. I guess Amazon music doesn’t care about this? I really wish they would fix it as I pay for prime every year. But this always falls on deaf ears.

The Best
SFC(Ret.) US Army, Mike Milihram
by MP31BMike on 2022/05/14 07:43
YouTube, Google, FarceBook, Instagram, ALL the Digital & Social Media Elites, or, more appropriately.....Effetes, have decided to dictate to US, WE, the moral, ethical and principled MAJORITY....what is and isn’t “the norm,” or “acceptable.” I’ve followed online music sources, WITHOUT PAYING for the extortion which passes for “nominal fees” or “fair charges,” and scoffed at the protestations of the “pseudo-majority.” If we truly lived in a nation(the USA) which was still a nation which carried the world on its back through two World Wars, the Cold War and decades of poverty, famines, natural disasters. Internecine struggles....then something SS simple as Amazon Music wouldn’t be the farcical presence it is today. Your top 1% of Administrators, corporate executives is NO DIFFERENT than any of the Silicon Valley or Digital Elitists which are despised by a growing population of the America. And world-wide populations are beginning to acknowledge, understand and accept as being truly greedy and single-minded. Open up your access, reduce your costs and find more equitable, even cost-free avenues fo give people, MORE people, the true gift of music. When SO MUCH is under attack, being subdued and even take away from people today, shouldn’t it be a welcome challenge for a company such as Amazon, to venture into an area of altruism or philanthropy ignored by so many companies for so many decades?

App Size & Storage

Why is the app over 700 MB? It’s almost a whole GB. Spotify isn’t even that big.

Hands down, the best major music streaming service. Ultra HD 48+khz 24-bit music on all platforms (without any weird MQA encoding that TIDAL has).
Love the Alexa integration, Hate the constant up selling of Music Unlimited
by redres66334 on 2021/06/06 20:40
This is one of the most used app on my phone, especially when I’m with my kids or driving and I quickly need to play one of the kids favorite tracks, it’s super convenient to just say “Alexa play lullabies” or “Alexa play frozen songs”. However I hate that every time I open the app the first thing I get is a full screen ad for Music Unlimited with a giant buy button and a teeny-tiny text to skip. Such an infuriating dark pattern, especially when balancing a bawling kid on one hand and the fact that I have turned down the offer everyday for the last year should be indicative that I am not interested in buying. I already am a Prime member paying 130$ a year. If I wanted to pay for music I would get a subscriptIon that had a bigger collection, just saying. The second biggest irritation as many have mentioned is the constant disappearing of songs to the paid section. I am not sure what licensing changes are driving these but building up a library of playlists and then discovering that half of the songs don’t play anymore is really frustrating. Apart from the above two, the app is good in general - does what it’s supposed to do, lyrics display is cool and is pretty stable and quick. But the two cons are becoming irritating enough for me to come and write this review and knock off three stars.
User interface design by Flintstone
by Ebo Built on 2021/04/30 23:18
User interface was designed by Fred Flintstone.... it’s clumsy, byzantine, and poorly organized. Any “user friendly” interface is easy to discern to the point where it becomes almost intuitive. Suffers from glitchy behavior when the phone is performing other tasks and operations which is frustrating.... it interferes with a pleasurable listening experience. My phone is a brand new flagship from Samsung so we can’t blame these glitches on older equipment. On the plus side, when the music is playing the sound quality is amazing and has true fidelity I believe as to how the artist intended it to sound! The available selections are nothing short of phenomenal, widespread, and eclectic! Although I would like to see more selections offered from the big swing bands that flourished during and after WWII, like “Sing, Sing, Sing” from the BBC’s Big Band Orchestra for example. Not remastered originals but modern performances of that style & genre. In short, the entire user interface needs to be elegant and its design philosophy should be driven by “organized simplicity”…. But you guys are off to a really good start!
The refreshing is annoying
by MsTiffany24 on 2021/03/07 21:12
I really like this app but I have tried an tried to find out why every time I get a phone call or I go out of my app when I push pause on my music an go back within minutes it goes an refreshes the whole app. I’m literally in the middle of a song so what is the purpose of refreshing the app 🧐I tried to just start putting the music on an old phone I have that’s just for WiFi but even that if I’m closer to it an pause it, you can’t leave the app longer then a minute it seems without it just thinking your not coming back or something. An the other issue is it constantly takes random music that i do listen to often out of my music list. I’ll add a song to my music an sometimes a playlist too, an I’ll be listening to the song randomly later on a station that I choose an I’ll go an decide to add it to a playlist an see that it’s not even in my music. So I’ll add it again. I’ve only notice it since like I said I’ll decide to add it to a playlist an see it has the plus next to add music. But why is it constantly coming out of my music. I have checked an seen that most songs still be in a playlist but not added to my music.. again not understanding these little things. But Please please fix. The little things add up to annoyance when it’s continuously acting up..
Glitchy songs
by Collectgirl on 2021/03/05 12:17
This app is great, i've been using it for a couple of years now and I love it, it has all the songs I need, and I have yet to search a song that isn't on there (I have prime unlimited). However, lately i have been coming across songs that are extremely static and/or skip around to random parts of the song. For example, when i was listening to Jump, by Van Halen, after the first 40 seconds of the song it skips to around 1:50 of the song, and continues to skip around. It's very frustrating, and makes a terrible static sound when doing so. I've found that when i listen to these songs over my Echo Dot, this problem doesn't occur, it's only when I'm using my Airpods. I've never had this problem until recently, and it's only certain songs that do this, and it's pretty consistently happening. If i restart the app it fixes the problem temporarily, but it's a hassle, not to mention the static noise is terrible and is probably making me deaf. the songs i know of at the moment are Jump-van halen, paper sun-def leppard, bringing on the heartbreak- def leppard. I've only seen this glitch when i recently got into 80's music, and it's only the certain songs. i'm not sure if there are others, but these are the ones i know of. I've seen a problem with several def leppard songs. please fix this.
Needs Garlic
by lou spuss on 2020/12/09 13:41
Not a bad music app. Selection is good could be better. I’m with the others about the songs/artists “disappearing” without notice, it’s frustrating and makes me switch to a different app. I am a touch OCD so when I add a song to a named playlist and it doesn’t add into the overall library of “my music” I get frustrated. I too listen to music for 8-12 hours a day while working and commuting. Sometimes I would like to have the ability to shuffle every song in my library from all playlists, that is impossible with the current setup on the app. “My music” should be the cumulative collection of every song that has been downloaded or added to a playlist. Lastly, I should never hear the same song repeat itself day after day when in shuffle mode. Most days I will start my drive by hitting shuffle and I hear the same songs as the day before. This shouldn’t happen when I have hundreds of songs in each playlist an my music. It’s a simple program of “each song should only play once until all others have done the same” no matter how many times the app has been closed. I use the app because I can’t stand Top 40 stations; it’s like being mule kicked by a rhino. The app needs playback help, music selection is decent not great. If I had to pay for this without my prime subscription I would look elsewhere, the value is currently not there.
Overrated
by x_preston_x on 2022/04/23 20:51
It’s really nice as far as no commercials and the look of the app/graphics itself but it’s not truly ideal as far as personalization. I’m not one that has time to constantly search songs or create playlists. I personally like to listen to the radio commercial free. However, there aren’t many radio options on this streaming service as far as mixes. Example, there’s no hip-hop and r&b mixed stations or stations that play r&b and hip hop hits, I guess unless you go to a particular artists station; that’s really a lot of constant work of constantly changing back and forth. I feel like this app caters more towards pop and indie as far as (hits). Also, when you do particularly find stations that you like you can’t save them to a certain section, it only allows for you to pull songs from the station to create a set playlist. You can like songs but, as far as I noticed you can only listen to your liked songs but it doesn’t create stations that are similar to the songs you’ve liked. I listen to a wide variety of music so if I’d listen to my liked songs it can go from classical, jazz, hip hop, oldies, etc., so extremely all over the place. I normally don’t write app reviews but I was extremely disappointed and frustrated to the point that I felt the need to share this. I should’ve did a trial before actually paying the subscription.
Annoying glitch when you delete songs
by NY2CHI on 2022/03/03 12:04
I love this app generally, but I recently deleted my downloaded songs and now it’s annoying and almost unusable. I now get this pop-up screen that tells me to “redownload missing songs”. It seemingly gives you two options: to redownload or to “start fresh.” Since I deleted the downloaded songs for a reason, I choose “start fresh”…whatever that means. It then goes to a processing screen that says it’s performing the necessary updates to my music library, which can take anywhere from 2 seconds to INFINITY. I have a range of times for this process because THIS HAPPENS EVERY TIME I START THE APP. So, instead of updating the library or “starting fresh” it seems to now be a new annoying startup glitch. Sometimes the glitch cycles for a super long time, so I have to restart the app and hope the next glitch is shorter. BUT WAIT THERES MORE: when I finally do get to play my music, there’s ANOTHER new glitch. If I try to stream one of the formerly downloaded songs, it shows an error screen: “song not found”, with the options to “redownload missing songs” or “start fresh”. At least it will stream the song that it can’t be found, even as it pressures me to redownload. I don’t want to redownload. I just want to stream music on my preferred music app. If this keeps up, it won’t be my preferred app for long….
Post Punk Leaning Toward Ypslilanti
by Alien Dope on 2022/04/06 22:25
Terms of misunderstanding have lead me to believe that the promiscuous and, hence, tartish behavior of my musical choices have left my mate in an otherwise undesirable, yet, highly agitated mood. Obviously, I was “highly agitated” when most of the music was introduced to me, but on further inspection it has left me wonton and without sexual congress. Due to the nature of my audiophilic needs and the various oppositions displayed by my congenital needs, I feel torn. And not the good kind, mind you. Several people have engaged in conversation about my auditory pleasures and the amount of emphasis I place on hardcore musics from the 1980s. She, my wife this time, finds it “shouts” in her words, angry. I lust for the dramatic push and pull of life’s rigorous and salacious moments, when men against men and women pitted against them, enthralled us all and our deceits were left unchallenged only to be rebuked in a pit of fear, confusion and eventual, demise... Fated to no one except our needs, hopes and, yes, desires. How I wish this service fulfilled all that, but, yeh, it is my own memory that binds my kismet. I will challenge it, for tonight, I listen.
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!!
Thought about the music unlimited.
by bunnbub54 on 2020/10/08 20:36
I just wanted to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE music. I listen to music literally ever day. But there is one thing that really gets on my nerves. The music unlimited thing is a good idea but, some songs that I really like to listen to are music unlimited, and I LOVE to listen to Taylor Swift but, a few days ago when I tried to play it, it said that it was music unlimited. But maybe you could have like “pay 10$ for one week of music unlimited songs” or “Pay 20$ for a year” or something like that. You don’t have to that but it’s just a suggestion. 😊 Update: As I said before I love music and I like the music unlimited idea but it’s just kind of expensive and when I try to listen to certain songs sometimes the day after I listen to them they become music unlimited when we don’t pay for it in the first place. So I was thinking that the person wanting to listen to music but can’t because it is unlimited could pay, say, $20-$30 for a whole year or 1/2 a year of unlimited songs. I’m not trying to cut how much money you get I’m just throwing out some ideas that you could possibly look at and talk it over. I hope that these ideas come to be useful in the future.
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.
Are you still listening
by ÜberSuperTexasGal on 2020/10/31 22:53
Up until recently, I have had ZERO problems with this app. Sure, songs go missing... but its free (with my prime membership) and I can usually find something to replace it with. The problem I have, though, is that lately it has been stopping at irregular intervals and asking if im still listening. I have one particular playlist that is used to get me through medical infusions. I get my IV started and listen to my playlist. I know where I am in the infusion by the song playing. No need to keep pulling out my phone or looking for a clock. My last infusion was interrupted by the “Are you still listening “ thing. I had my phone in my purse across the room. I couldn’t get to it and was left with nothing. Music gets me through these infusions and not having it on was distressing. If im not listening to it, I will stop it on my own. Considering just buying the songs from iTunes and staying uninterrupted. This hasn’t been an issue until just recently but looking online I see other people have been experiencing it for a long time. It may be time to just let my membership expire as this is really the only thing i use of Prime on a usual basis.
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.
Maybe consider this
by osooooom on 2021/05/15 21:41
So, there is this one song that I love, but the artist isn’t putting it on. :( is there some way for me to put that song on their sccount or something? I am not going to search up how to hack because I don’t want to go to the “dark side” also, that would be plain disrespectfull. I’m just saying that I wish there was some way to add to artists albums and stuff, of corse it would have to be approved by the artsist of corse, and if they say no, they would be putting it into considerstion. Or, you could add a clean reviews pole. It would be a better way for artists to get feedback! Just please consider it. One last thing, it keeps delting songs from my playlist. Even though when i search it up on the app it shows up.. really annoying. And the reviews are being honest. It’s REALLLY glitchy. So ummmm, maybe just fix that as well! I’m not mad, promise, it’s just the fact that it is fairly glitchy. Also, i feel like maybe you should atleast have a variaty of wider songs, like Miss Wanna Die, the tiltle may sound bad but i want more than a music box version please. Thank you.
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
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.
Starts out good
by what nick name do you accept on 2020/11/12 18:51
Lots of music choices. Easy to do basics. Many choices in the pull down menus. No instructions whatsoever so not sure what some of the choices do. So you experiment with the and do things that you have no idea how to undo. Example: selected the microphone from list and now whenever I play that playlist it starts playing similar genres not on playlist ( even after you choose to NOT have it play similar songs after playlist is over) The worst thing is the App. It does not ever match what is actually playing. Cannot stop the song playing cuz the app shows the previous song. Have to turn off everything and start from scratch. The echo will not stay paired so have to manually choose echo. Airplay does not work. Have to manually go to settings on device to choose external speaker. Shuffle all song plays the same 10-15 songs over and over. Can only shuffle individual playlists. We’re done
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.
Lots of reliability issues
by bucket of apathy on 2022/01/21 00:07
Super unreliable on mobile platforms. I’ll experience at least some sort of error or a complete program crash multiple times per day, sometimes multiple times during a brief listening session. Rarely is the issue due to a signal loss, especially since i’m almost always in an urban area with either good wifi or good cellular service. The UI is pretty good but for some reason they hid the dislike button. This makes no sense because it exists to help you sort through the songs you like and dont like, all while helping their algorithm find more music for you. Another feature that used to be enjoyable was the X-ray feature. I loved being able to see the lyrics in real time along side the music, but for some reason that feature was modified so that you cant see the lyrics along side the music. Overall the quality could best be described as cromulent. You have a ton of music at your fingertips but the delivery method is substandard. If it wasn’t for the fact that we already have a prime account, id be using a different streaming service.
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😤😡
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.
Not that great
by Coverbird on 2021/10/28 20:35
This app is frustrating. If I put an album an my music and download it then it will still stream it unless I make a playlist and put those tracks in a playlist. So: add album to my music, effectively a playlist. But then I have to make a playlist, name it after the album, add the tracks from my music to match the album in the playlist, then download them. That’s redundant and such a waste of time. Also, the app constantly freezes on several different devices. When driving I have to fight with it for 5 minutes to get it to play music. Some great updates because it never used to be like this. Edit: It seems since switching to iOS 15 that it has not been working. Constantly CarPlay with the Music app says cannot connect, try again. When data was turned on for my app it chewed through all my data because it played ‘online’ playlists and streamed the music despite it being downloaded to my device. I have to enable offline mode to get anything to play (still starting the songs from my phone) and certain playlists don’t show up even though I downloaded them all. I have closed my account and switched to Apple Music. No problems there.
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
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.
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.
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. 🙏

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
This app is fine?
by antinonimous on 2021/08/04 04:53
This app mostly does its job but every few months, the “my soundtrack” section goes completely off the rails and comes up with a genre you’ve never asked for that it will play over and over and over no matter how many times you dislike the songs of that genre. Never listened to Spanish free form jazz? Neither had I until one day that’s ALL it would give me in my “curated playlist based on songs I’ve liked”. Idk what this bug is but now it’s only giving me classic rock… which is better, but still not what I want. I’m not sure what to do to fix it cause I keep pressing the “don’t play songs like this on this station” button only to get MORE songs like that. Sometimes it has no idea what to choose so it defaults to the top songs on the charts but I REALLY don’t wanna hear the same 3 tiktok songs over and over and over. I’ve never once seeked out a Justin Bieber or dua lipa song but after the Spanish jazz was done that’s all it gave me for a week. 95% of the time it works fine but every so often “my soundtrack” is clearly not mine.
It’s pretty good
by Mta5 on 2020/12/21 13:28
Hard to separate the app from the service...you are going to get both here. I have been an unlimited subscriber for more than year. I made the jump because I enjoyed the music, the sound quality is good and the library is enormous. Yes the better content requires you to pay and I’m surprised that people are surprised by that. Though, having artists leave the free version without any sort of warning was annoying. Again, part of the reason for the switch. If you like the service, pay to support it. Makes sense. The app has been buggy for me in past versions. It tended to just restart itself. I’d say maybe the device, but this was the only app that did it. The latest update seems to have corrected the issue. The UI is decent, not fantastic but decent. The auto play feature they added is annoying. I get why it would seem like a good idea...if you play one song it stops. That bothered me at first, but once you realize you told it to play one song and it did exactly what you told it to, the frustration fades. If you want continual play, start a station or playlist. Nothing like playing a song that you know is okay for your 4 year old to hear and then have auto play throw on another song from the genre that absolutely is not. Good thing you can turn that off. In short though, no ads, huge music selection, decent sound quality and a reasonable user interface. It is a good product...one worth paying for.
Badly needed feature
by Sammy-T on 2020/10/15 02:53
I like to shuffle all of my more than four thousand songs so that I always get a really varied listening experience, and I do listen a lot. It would be really cool to be able to play two or more album tracks together regardless of circumstance. That is, these tracks from an album are always played together in one particular order regardless of whether the rest of the music is shuffled or not. Examples: The Beatles” Sgt. Pepper... is always followed by “With a little help from my friends”. Also, from the first Allman Brothers’ album, “Don’t wantcha no more” is always followed by “Cross to bear”. XTC’s “Summer’s cauldron” should always be followed by “Grass”. Pure Prairie League’s “Falling in and out of love” should be followed by “Amy”. That would be a really cool feature and would make my listening experience perfect. As it is I had to make a Connected Songs playlist in order to listen to these sequences the way I prefer.
Bittersweet
by Amyzon71 on 2020/12/16 13:10
I like that this comes with Prime, but I don’t like that the algorithms need more improvement. I end up listening to songs that have very little musical similarity to the song or type of music I choose. Also, at the Home Screen, I am bombarded with a bunch of stations and lists that are piled on top of what I really want, and that’s my recents first. “Stations You Might Like” and such, change every time I listen to a different genre, which makes it hard to explore. I’ll listen to Christmas music one day, and Christian or classical or EDM another day. Every time I change it, all I see suggested is music from the last genre I listened to. It’s like the app thinks I only want to hear what I last chose, instead of seeing that I like ALL kinds of music. I do like the Soundtracks and Discovery Mixes, except that I have never liked pop music, save for a song or artist every once in a great while, and yet it always seems to infiltrate my listening. If I don’t search or listen to Billie Eilish or Post Malone, please stop pushing it on me.
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!
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.
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.
Flawless!
by Cap'n marvel on 2021/05/29 06:15
Does everything Apple Music does, but a little bit better. Especially like the “offline mode” and this enables me to use my old iPhone to download and Bluetooth my music when driving, and I can use my main phone for GPS. The quality of the music while streaming can be selected to use less data if need be. This service is WELL worth the money spent. I have several gigs downloaded, and the downloads on the device can be deleted and new songs added within seconds while on WiFi. The only drawback? Only one device can be used at a time unless you pay extra. Not an issue in my situation. There’s the benefit of Alexa; she can shuffle from your downloaded music or you can create a station and stream whatever you are in the mood to hear. Having the larger file size going through two Exos-9 speakers is the definition of “immersive”.
This app is sinking
by Bakingapps5150 on 2022/04/15 11:02
I’ve dealt with this app for 5 years not out of necessity but because it’s the only app I have that plays with my screen off. I know there are others I can use that can be better but it surprises me that this was the first to boast “it has millions of songs it can recognize any song you ask even just the title” wrong. this app doesn’t have rap it barely has any new music and any music you can recall good luck cause if you can find the album 9 times out of 10 it doesn’t even have the song you want because of and I’ve seen it say to me multiple times “song can’t be played due to licensing issues”. And now Alexa she is so broken I can’t even get it to play a Motley Crue song from a james brown song and for the latter of any songs it plays it’s always some random artist playing a cover or a whole different song. And it plays generic songs you can hear on the radio after any playlist you make or finish playing. Also last thing that’s a problem you alter my playlists and take out songs I chose and render my entire playlist and my music useless to remove or replace them.
What happened ??
by Skarekrow92 on 2022/04/07 05:06
Really liked the app when I first got it, but for the past month or so it has been VERY unreliable. I listen to it in offline mode most of the time and it’ll have issues when I try to play/skip/prev music from my watch (won’t do the action or it’ll take 15-40 seconds to actually do the action), it’ll just force close randomly (really annoying cuz it’s basically a playlist for while I’m working, and I don’t want to have to open the app 4-9 times while I’m at work), and if I skip 4 or 5 songs in a row the app just freezes and it seems like it force closes 30-40% of the time (keep in mind this is while it’s in offline mode so the music is supposed to be “downloaded”). There are some little things about the app I don’t like, and the biggest thing aside from the issues I’m having with it right now is that they make music unavailable (I assume for licensing/contractual issues), but I was always willing to put up with it, but this is driving me nuts right now and I’m not going to keep paying money for an app that I constantly have to mess with just to get it to work sometimes.
Buggy
by Freshsta on 2020/12/16 11:52
First of all I want to be clear that I’m reviewing the app not the service, the subscription, or even specifically the overall song selection which on a sidenote I’m quite happy with. Overall the app is pretty solid and allows you to explore different music and now you can do podcast and videos which is a nice ad on but I primarily use it for the music. The search function could be a little more comprehensive and user-friendly but it’s not bad. The main reason I only gave it three stars was because it’s so buggy! Almost every other time I open the app and start playing music and lock my phone and walk away from it to either go work out or if it’s in my car, the music suddenly stops because the app just closes randomly. This gets super frustrating because it happens so often. This happened on my iPhone 11 and is still happening on my iPhone 12 Pro Max. This is not a new problem that I have encountered and I’m surprised it hasn’t been fixed yet.

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.
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
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.
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.
why the glitching
by i hay love wilson nonnon on 2021/11/27 08:22
uhm so this app is great but the glitching is making me really upset and it’s only on songs i listen to multiple times a day. also why does a microphone appear at the top sometimes? i always thought that oh it’s not recording me or anything but i guess not because now in one of the songs i listen too after the first 40 seconds it switches into splatoon music that i can tell was recorded from their app because it sounds like it’s coming off of my nintendo. just great cuz not only are the songs glitching and skipping to random parts, but they are including audio recorded from their own music app into the songs i listen to. i might have to stop using this app it’s really making me upset and paranoid Edit: Gotten even more glitchy. can listen to my playlists on shuffle anymore because the button isn’t working, which is making me super upset, because i like listening to my music in a different order than it’s lined up in the playlist, but i can’t anymore because the button won’t work.
Just a bug fest
by Mcbeanarooniebot on 2021/11/07 15:17
The app was fine but after the most recent update using this app is the most frustrating thing you’ll do all day. If you’re music pauses to load it either will just stop playing and you can only play the same song on repeat or you have to change the playlist or station completely. Or if it plays the same song and you try to skip it, it will just pause whatever song you’re on. It is the worst when you are driving to the point that it is almost unusable. Also, it will continue to suggest the same music or podcasts no matter how many times you ignore podcasts or don’t click on a playlist. They used to have community playlists which I enjoyed listening to but now those aren’t available and anytime I try to listen to any I have saved it returns the most annoying error message that you have to close about 15 times before you can do anything else. This app was fine before the update but now is actually trash so I just wish they would take it back.
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!
New User Interface is horrid
by stormblade00 on 2021/12/05 21:41
Ive never felt compelled to leave a bad review but this new update is so bad. I wish they would tell you what you’re updating other than just “bug fixes”. I don’t think changing the entire way the app looks counts as a bug fix. Up until about 6 months ago I had no complaints with the app, and then they changed the UI the first time. I didn’t like it but I learned to live with it. They randomly this morning the way the whole album section is designed changed. You can press a filter to change the album layout back to whats close to the old version, but it doesn’t save when you leave albums and have to press it again when you come back. Also now when I click on an album it shows me the whole thing and not just the songs I have downloaded. Again, you can filter it to just show you downloaded music, and again it resets as soon as you leave that album to go to another one. Please for the love of everything revert this update and tell us when you’re changing the app for things no one asked for.
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).
Not happy with the latest & “greatest”, plus a bug
by BPhillips1114 on 2022/03/22 16:25
Need to be able to permanently change display within the app. I don’t like the default way it lists bands in my library. I’m also generally unhappy with the layout once I get into an artist page. Way too cumbersome, not streamlined to find what I’ve already downloaded (albums, etc). I shouldn’t have to navigate past material I haven’t downloaded (most likely because I’m not interested) to get to the stuff I have downloaded. Should have the option to load *my library* first, with the option of perusing other works by the artist at my discretion… As far as the bug: When I open & go to my Library, it will not let me scroll down to “Recents”. It acts as though it’s at the bottom, even though I do catch a glimpse of the Recents (Song History, etc). Only way to correct it is by shutting down the app completely & re-launching (thereby pausing/cancelling the music I’m downloading, which is ironic because that’s exactly why I’m checking ‘Recents’ in the first place…)

Honest Truth: It needs an overhaul
by Irvin (KC) on 2022/05/23 23:30
As a Prime customer, I really wanted to rely on Amazon Music [Unlimited] as my default music streaming service, especially because I’m deep in the Amazon Prime ecosystem and own many Amazon devices, but the lower quality customer user experience, it’s limitations and errors make the extra Amazon add-on subscription not worth using nor paying for. For example, in the “Latest” section for Podcasts, it often, in error, neglects new episodes that I follow, so I have to go to the podcast Show itself to seek the new episodes that are supposed to show up on “Latest.” Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Pandora do not have these issues. The user interface is clunky, crowded, messy and unfocused. Many Podcasts and songs available on YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music don’t exist on Amazon Music Unlimited. Amazon is currently investing and focusing on improving Prime Video, and it seems that it’s Music service and it’s Luna Cloud Gaming services are not well funded or are not as important to Amazon. As a result, Amazon Music is just an afterthought to Amazon, and the customers can feel it. Customers vote with their dollars, and it’s going into Spotify’s and Apple‘s pockets. Even though Amazon Music Unlimited is treated as an afterthought by Amazon, it costs equally to superior music services. Why pay the same price to an inferior service if you can receive better elsewhere? Not to mention that Pandora music is completely free to listen and use (with Ads). There is currently no Feedback section to improve the music service and experience for paying customers.

So annoyed
by Reese_8081 on 2022/05/23 14:35
Every single time I want to listen to a song it is on unlimited every single song is on unlimited I am about to delete the app because of this!
Still needs some improvement
by smurf72 on 2022/05/23 12:28
4/5/22 - I love this app. It is one of the most used apps on my phone. But even after the last update just a few days ago, it is still playing song with similar words in the title one after the other. I play my music on shuffle, and I do have some duplicates. So when it plays the same song 2 or 3 times in a row, it gets kind of annoying. Yes, I could delete the duplicates, but it still plays song with similar words in the song title righ after each other. It would also be nice if I could remove a song from my library on the same screen as the song is playing. Instead I have to hunt for the option. Please make these changes in the next update and I’ll change to 5 stars. Update 4/19/22 - In addition to the above, now it plays in alphabetical order from wherever it starts. Seriously?! Changed my score to 2 stars. Come on Amazon! Are you reading these? Update 5/20/22: Last app update was 5/16/22. Still having the issues stated above. Changed rating to 1 star. Will change back to 5 once the above issues are fixed. If they ever are. UPDATE MAY 23, 2022: FINALLY! The above issues are fixed! Except I STILL can’t delete a song from the play screen. 4 stars.
Censoring
by Mikey_08 on 2022/05/23 11:57

Amazon music is the best music app out there in my opinion. It has so many songs and pieces together all your favorite songs to create playlists that match your current style of music! One thing that would make it even better is if it had not just music videos, but for all the songs from movies and tv shows, it had a video of the scene that they are singing the song in. That would be awesome!
Don’t waste your time literally
by don't take away my prime on 2022/05/22 15:15
I spent hours putting together a good playlist. Now they’re taking my favorite songs and putting them in a new category called unlimited and want me to pay extra for it. We’re already paying a fee for Amazon prime. They’re doing the same crap where they’re streaming movies and TV. It’s not like Amazon doesn’t already have half the money in the world. I say let them play with their self

User-hostile interface changes
by cr0nd on 2022/05/22 06:04
2022-05-21: A recent update seems to have removed the user interface elements that indicate an album is only available by subscribing to Amazon Music Unlimited. Now when you look at the list of albums from a particular artist, the albums requiring an Unlimited subscription are indistinguishable from those available via Amazon Music Prime. As a Prime subscriber, one only learns an album requires a subscription to Unlimited after you tap on it, via a prompt that has to be dismissed with a second tap. This is the kind of change made solely based on some middle manager's desire to continue hitting their target metrics, so they will get that quarterly bonus that makes their third car/second house/etc affordable, but it makes the experience objectively worse for the user. The app experience has been slowly degrading over time anyway, from the introduction of various nag screens, to the integration of podcasts intermixed with music content. This most recent change is just another step down the path of mediocrity.

Best music app 4 many reasons
by Ant@Woo on 2022/05/22 03:46
Let me explain I used every music app and no music app can touch Amazon music. I listen to a lot of music and the way Amazon plays music is amazing so if you pick a artist and hit the radio button it will play a huge section of music that is related to that artist. Okay now for my Christian Hip Hop listeners. This is the best app to listen to Christian Rap. You will be amazed

Genuinely do not understand why it does this, but it keeps deleting the first few songs from my playlists. I go to check if it’s because the music was removed from Amazon Music, but alas, it hasn’t been removed, the app just keeps glitching and removing random songs from my playlist. It’s so annoying. Update: it happened again and I’m about to rage quit. If I have to add songs back onto my playlist again I’m gonna delete the app and cry.
Wont play the right songs

What happened?
by Eschiss1 on 2022/05/19 21:14
Apparently with the latest update tracks no longer play in order. When playing an album I want to hear the movements of a piece of music in order, not -skipping every other track-. Seriously? Edit: This seems to result from the right “arrows” sign having been (accidentally) activated/turned blue. It’s still weird behavior, and I’ll need to find documentation of those repeat-instruction marks.

I like the app, but you can’t remove a podcast or a album from the jump back in list. This so frustrating. If I don’t want to finish a podcast it’s because I don’t like it and I don’t want to finish it. Please let me remove it from this list!!!
Amazon has finally ruined this app
by dblaroche on 2022/05/19 16:27
It’s no longer possible to buy music from inside the app. The user is forced to go to the website. Often my purchased music is missing one day but appears a couple days later. They’ve done the same thing to the Audible app. Dreadful.

Weird app. I add the song to my playlist then I click on the song to play but it plays some other song in place of the song that was added to the playlist. Either I am not able to understand how to operate this app or its too weird for normal user.

by Muthahumpa on 2022/05/18 12:53

Used to be great, now it’s not
by amyyyyyy90 on 2022/05/18 04:57
With the latest update they for some reason disabled listening to songs in order. If I click on a song in my Playlist, it starts playing another song. I want to listen to the song I clicked on, that’s why I clicked on it. Also used to be ad free because I ALREADY PAY FOR AMAZON PRIME, but it wants me upgrade to Unlimited for EVEN MORE MONEY, so it now plays ads. I used to use this app for sleep music specifically so I wouldn’t get ads. It’s not nice drifting off to sleep to peaceful music only to be woken up by an ad screaming at you to upgrade to Unlimited.

Life is better with Amazon Music
by JVV-ZVV on 2022/05/18 02:44
Been a fan of music since the 1960’s with very little interest in today’s music, but love being able to create playlists which comprise collections and genres of my interests and musical moods from the 50s to earlier 2000’s. I wish the app would let me delete a song from a playlist while listening, but it seems you have to edit the list itself… my largest playlist is just over 2000 songs, so not easy to navigate. Otherwise, love it…
Always Buffering ..
by Bellagana on 2022/05/18 02:06
Pretty much can’t use this anymore - past three months all it does it buffer. Switched to using Apple Music as default and plays no issues, when the echos are working, that is. It’s one thing after another lately with Amazon devices.

Unreliable
by at do j gf x on 2022/05/17 21:49
At first this app was way better than the other options. After several updates were released however the app started to freeze and took multiple buffers to even get through one song. This problem is so constant I can no longer tolerate to listen and have started listening to Pandora again. Since changing apps I have had no issues so I know it’s not my devices at fault. Hopefully someday the issue will get resolved.
Not Happy
by Gospel Shift on 2022/05/17 21:39
I liked Amazon music and enjoyed it for a while. I could add my songs to a very long playlist and listen to it on a long car ride. But about a few months ago my music has been disappearing from my playlist and deleted from my music so I have to keep adding them to my playlist. And now quite a few of my songs cut out and skip after 10 seconds of playing. I can’t listen to some of my music and that disappoints me.
What is going on Amazon Music???
by Accountable&Reliable on 2022/05/17 21:29
This app used to be 4 stars for me. My only problem was that when you have more than one profile the app doesn’t keep track of which person liked which song. So I would get a bunch of my husband’s song mixed in with my liked songs. Not the end of the world. Now I cannot get through a single song without it buffering many many times!! The song just stops and the little icon just spins around and around. This doesn’t happen as often on WiFi but it still happens. Why am I paying extra for family unlimited music?? This happens on my husbands phone and on our Alexa as well. Please fix!

by MAJ MacReaper on 2022/05/16 14:00
I give it 5 stars because it is so well integrated into iOS and because it does everything that I want yet doesn't tie me solely to iTunes. The only drawback is that when Prime music songs are in a playlist, and you are offline, the player hangs up until you skip forwards to the next song.

by otherisp on 2022/05/15 20:11
For some reason, every other streaming app has figured out how to resume the song or at the very least, the playlist you were on when you exited. Upon opening THIS app, however, you’re automatically subjected to one of their trash playlists that has nothing to do with what you were listening to. Moving on to an app that actually works.
🎧Best app🎧
by rosiyM2 on 2022/05/15 19:21
I have had amazon music for years and i absolutely love it. There are a few things i was hoping could be added. So first i have years worth of songs on my playlist and i don’t want to have a bunch of different playlists but sometimes i want to only hear songs from certain years they were added. Basically i wish that when you were on your playlist you can choose what year/ month you want to listen to based on when they were added to your playlist. Second i was hoping more songs could be added. But beside that this app is great and i love it.

by Katarica on 2022/05/15 18:07
I was very happy with this app for the first two months I had it. Then they updated, took away the skip buttons in the likes, took away all but one song on my favorite playlist, and made the app harder to use… I have the unlimited and it only works on one of my echos and not at all in the app. Would not recommend, about to delete.

by cheryl1073 on 2022/05/15 17:41

Horrible in car play mode
by Intemperant on 2022/05/15 17:35
Buffering issues galore, forgetting where I am after I turn off the car. Even though I have many liked songs, the “liked” station seems to play only the same first 5-15 songs before it decides it’s played enough. Carplay mode is horrible.
Why???
by Clumber Lover on 2022/05/15 17:02
Amazon music is great except for 2 disturbing things. First of all you need to put the albums of a subscriber’s music in alphabetical order of the artist. The way Amazon Music has it organized is an absolute mess. Who remembers the name of an album, not many, but placed in alphabetical order of the artist the subscriber can quickly find what they are looking for!!!! Why on earth are albums suddenly removed from one’s library without warning. Upon back tracking the subscriber is told that the music is “no longer available in their area”. That makes no sense, what does that even mean. It would be nice if the subscriber was given a warning and an explanation. With some type of warning the patron could at least investigate as to whether there is a CD that could be purchased. Some fabulous music was taken from me which I can’t track. As a music aficionado I am heartbroken! Please rethink how you organize our music, or at least give us a choice!!!
Please look at this
by Julia Halloran on 2022/05/15 12:53
So I was going on to this app I absolutely love it, but I went on to listen to really good songs I found. But when I taped on it, it was playing other songs not the song I wanted to listen to. So please read and fix and I’ll love it sooo much more.

by LaurenInPA on 2022/05/14 18:01
I wanted to listen to a handful of songs later, so I added each one to my “queue”— and I can’t for the life of me find or play my queue. In hindsight, I should have created a playlist, but why is there an option for the queue then? In general, I find the app difficult to navigate.
Are you still listening?
by jeff fuh fuh on 2022/05/14 15:07
I cannot believe how many times I try listening to this all day at work and after an hour it asked me if I’m still listening. It says you’ve been away from the app for a while. Which I haven’t and I have complained about this and wrote a review several times to no avail. I have been listening to Pandora for the last three days now. The pandora app is totally free with commercials. I don’t mind the commercials as long as I can listen to it without having to babysit my phone every hour. I guess Amazon music doesn’t care about this? I really wish they would fix it as I pay for prime every year. But this always falls on deaf ears.

by MP31BMike on 2022/05/14 07:43
YouTube, Google, FarceBook, Instagram, ALL the Digital & Social Media Elites, or, more appropriately.....Effetes, have decided to dictate to US, WE, the moral, ethical and principled MAJORITY....what is and isn’t “the norm,” or “acceptable.” I’ve followed online music sources, WITHOUT PAYING for the extortion which passes for “nominal fees” or “fair charges,” and scoffed at the protestations of the “pseudo-majority.” If we truly lived in a nation(the USA) which was still a nation which carried the world on its back through two World Wars, the Cold War and decades of poverty, famines, natural disasters. Internecine struggles....then something SS simple as Amazon Music wouldn’t be the farcical presence it is today. Your top 1% of Administrators, corporate executives is NO DIFFERENT than any of the Silicon Valley or Digital Elitists which are despised by a growing population of the America. And world-wide populations are beginning to acknowledge, understand and accept as being truly greedy and single-minded. Open up your access, reduce your costs and find more equitable, even cost-free avenues fo give people, MORE people, the true gift of music. When SO MUCH is under attack, being subdued and even take away from people today, shouldn’t it be a welcome challenge for a company such as Amazon, to venture into an area of altruism or philanthropy ignored by so many companies for so many decades?
Outstanding!

Great value !
App Size & Storage
by Wolfprince1997 on 2022/05/14 02:59
Why is the app over 700 MB? It’s almost a whole GB. Spotify isn’t even that big.
Noice
by Maxwellywell on 2022/05/14 02:48
Hands down, the best major music streaming service. Ultra HD 48+khz 24-bit music on all platforms (without any weird MQA encoding that TIDAL has).
Love the Alexa integration, Hate the constant up selling of Music Unlimited
by redres66334 on 2021/06/06 20:40
This is one of the most used app on my phone, especially when I’m with my kids or driving and I quickly need to play one of the kids favorite tracks, it’s super convenient to just say “Alexa play lullabies” or “Alexa play frozen songs”. However I hate that every time I open the app the first thing I get is a full screen ad for Music Unlimited with a giant buy button and a teeny-tiny text to skip. Such an infuriating dark pattern, especially when balancing a bawling kid on one hand and the fact that I have turned down the offer everyday for the last year should be indicative that I am not interested in buying. I already am a Prime member paying 130$ a year. If I wanted to pay for music I would get a subscriptIon that had a bigger collection, just saying. The second biggest irritation as many have mentioned is the constant disappearing of songs to the paid section. I am not sure what licensing changes are driving these but building up a library of playlists and then discovering that half of the songs don’t play anymore is really frustrating. Apart from the above two, the app is good in general - does what it’s supposed to do, lyrics display is cool and is pretty stable and quick. But the two cons are becoming irritating enough for me to come and write this review and knock off three stars.
User interface design by Flintstone
by Ebo Built on 2021/04/30 23:18
User interface was designed by Fred Flintstone.... it’s clumsy, byzantine, and poorly organized. Any “user friendly” interface is easy to discern to the point where it becomes almost intuitive. Suffers from glitchy behavior when the phone is performing other tasks and operations which is frustrating.... it interferes with a pleasurable listening experience. My phone is a brand new flagship from Samsung so we can’t blame these glitches on older equipment. On the plus side, when the music is playing the sound quality is amazing and has true fidelity I believe as to how the artist intended it to sound! The available selections are nothing short of phenomenal, widespread, and eclectic! Although I would like to see more selections offered from the big swing bands that flourished during and after WWII, like “Sing, Sing, Sing” from the BBC’s Big Band Orchestra for example. Not remastered originals but modern performances of that style & genre. In short, the entire user interface needs to be elegant and its design philosophy should be driven by “organized simplicity”…. But you guys are off to a really good start!
The refreshing is annoying
by MsTiffany24 on 2021/03/07 21:12
I really like this app but I have tried an tried to find out why every time I get a phone call or I go out of my app when I push pause on my music an go back within minutes it goes an refreshes the whole app. I’m literally in the middle of a song so what is the purpose of refreshing the app 🧐I tried to just start putting the music on an old phone I have that’s just for WiFi but even that if I’m closer to it an pause it, you can’t leave the app longer then a minute it seems without it just thinking your not coming back or something. An the other issue is it constantly takes random music that i do listen to often out of my music list. I’ll add a song to my music an sometimes a playlist too, an I’ll be listening to the song randomly later on a station that I choose an I’ll go an decide to add it to a playlist an see that it’s not even in my music. So I’ll add it again. I’ve only notice it since like I said I’ll decide to add it to a playlist an see it has the plus next to add music. But why is it constantly coming out of my music. I have checked an seen that most songs still be in a playlist but not added to my music.. again not understanding these little things. But Please please fix. The little things add up to annoyance when it’s continuously acting up..
Glitchy songs
by Collectgirl on 2021/03/05 12:17
This app is great, i've been using it for a couple of years now and I love it, it has all the songs I need, and I have yet to search a song that isn't on there (I have prime unlimited). However, lately i have been coming across songs that are extremely static and/or skip around to random parts of the song. For example, when i was listening to Jump, by Van Halen, after the first 40 seconds of the song it skips to around 1:50 of the song, and continues to skip around. It's very frustrating, and makes a terrible static sound when doing so. I've found that when i listen to these songs over my Echo Dot, this problem doesn't occur, it's only when I'm using my Airpods. I've never had this problem until recently, and it's only certain songs that do this, and it's pretty consistently happening. If i restart the app it fixes the problem temporarily, but it's a hassle, not to mention the static noise is terrible and is probably making me deaf. the songs i know of at the moment are Jump-van halen, paper sun-def leppard, bringing on the heartbreak- def leppard. I've only seen this glitch when i recently got into 80's music, and it's only the certain songs. i'm not sure if there are others, but these are the ones i know of. I've seen a problem with several def leppard songs. please fix this.
Needs Garlic
by lou spuss on 2020/12/09 13:41
Not a bad music app. Selection is good could be better. I’m with the others about the songs/artists “disappearing” without notice, it’s frustrating and makes me switch to a different app. I am a touch OCD so when I add a song to a named playlist and it doesn’t add into the overall library of “my music” I get frustrated. I too listen to music for 8-12 hours a day while working and commuting. Sometimes I would like to have the ability to shuffle every song in my library from all playlists, that is impossible with the current setup on the app. “My music” should be the cumulative collection of every song that has been downloaded or added to a playlist. Lastly, I should never hear the same song repeat itself day after day when in shuffle mode. Most days I will start my drive by hitting shuffle and I hear the same songs as the day before. This shouldn’t happen when I have hundreds of songs in each playlist an my music. It’s a simple program of “each song should only play once until all others have done the same” no matter how many times the app has been closed. I use the app because I can’t stand Top 40 stations; it’s like being mule kicked by a rhino. The app needs playback help, music selection is decent not great. If I had to pay for this without my prime subscription I would look elsewhere, the value is currently not there.
Overrated
by x_preston_x on 2022/04/23 20:51
It’s really nice as far as no commercials and the look of the app/graphics itself but it’s not truly ideal as far as personalization. I’m not one that has time to constantly search songs or create playlists. I personally like to listen to the radio commercial free. However, there aren’t many radio options on this streaming service as far as mixes. Example, there’s no hip-hop and r&b mixed stations or stations that play r&b and hip hop hits, I guess unless you go to a particular artists station; that’s really a lot of constant work of constantly changing back and forth. I feel like this app caters more towards pop and indie as far as (hits). Also, when you do particularly find stations that you like you can’t save them to a certain section, it only allows for you to pull songs from the station to create a set playlist. You can like songs but, as far as I noticed you can only listen to your liked songs but it doesn’t create stations that are similar to the songs you’ve liked. I listen to a wide variety of music so if I’d listen to my liked songs it can go from classical, jazz, hip hop, oldies, etc., so extremely all over the place. I normally don’t write app reviews but I was extremely disappointed and frustrated to the point that I felt the need to share this. I should’ve did a trial before actually paying the subscription.
Annoying glitch when you delete songs
by NY2CHI on 2022/03/03 12:04
I love this app generally, but I recently deleted my downloaded songs and now it’s annoying and almost unusable. I now get this pop-up screen that tells me to “redownload missing songs”. It seemingly gives you two options: to redownload or to “start fresh.” Since I deleted the downloaded songs for a reason, I choose “start fresh”…whatever that means. It then goes to a processing screen that says it’s performing the necessary updates to my music library, which can take anywhere from 2 seconds to INFINITY. I have a range of times for this process because THIS HAPPENS EVERY TIME I START THE APP. So, instead of updating the library or “starting fresh” it seems to now be a new annoying startup glitch. Sometimes the glitch cycles for a super long time, so I have to restart the app and hope the next glitch is shorter. BUT WAIT THERES MORE: when I finally do get to play my music, there’s ANOTHER new glitch. If I try to stream one of the formerly downloaded songs, it shows an error screen: “song not found”, with the options to “redownload missing songs” or “start fresh”. At least it will stream the song that it can’t be found, even as it pressures me to redownload. I don’t want to redownload. I just want to stream music on my preferred music app. If this keeps up, it won’t be my preferred app for long….
Post Punk Leaning Toward Ypslilanti
by Alien Dope on 2022/04/06 22:25
Terms of misunderstanding have lead me to believe that the promiscuous and, hence, tartish behavior of my musical choices have left my mate in an otherwise undesirable, yet, highly agitated mood. Obviously, I was “highly agitated” when most of the music was introduced to me, but on further inspection it has left me wonton and without sexual congress. Due to the nature of my audiophilic needs and the various oppositions displayed by my congenital needs, I feel torn. And not the good kind, mind you. Several people have engaged in conversation about my auditory pleasures and the amount of emphasis I place on hardcore musics from the 1980s. She, my wife this time, finds it “shouts” in her words, angry. I lust for the dramatic push and pull of life’s rigorous and salacious moments, when men against men and women pitted against them, enthralled us all and our deceits were left unchallenged only to be rebuked in a pit of fear, confusion and eventual, demise... Fated to no one except our needs, hopes and, yes, desires. How I wish this service fulfilled all that, but, yeh, it is my own memory that binds my kismet. I will challenge it, for tonight, I listen.
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!!
Thought about the music unlimited.
by bunnbub54 on 2020/10/08 20:36
I just wanted to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE music. I listen to music literally ever day. But there is one thing that really gets on my nerves. The music unlimited thing is a good idea but, some songs that I really like to listen to are music unlimited, and I LOVE to listen to Taylor Swift but, a few days ago when I tried to play it, it said that it was music unlimited. But maybe you could have like “pay 10$ for one week of music unlimited songs” or “Pay 20$ for a year” or something like that. You don’t have to that but it’s just a suggestion. 😊 Update: As I said before I love music and I like the music unlimited idea but it’s just kind of expensive and when I try to listen to certain songs sometimes the day after I listen to them they become music unlimited when we don’t pay for it in the first place. So I was thinking that the person wanting to listen to music but can’t because it is unlimited could pay, say, $20-$30 for a whole year or 1/2 a year of unlimited songs. I’m not trying to cut how much money you get I’m just throwing out some ideas that you could possibly look at and talk it over. I hope that these ideas come to be useful in the future.
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.
Are you still listening
by ÜberSuperTexasGal on 2020/10/31 22:53
Up until recently, I have had ZERO problems with this app. Sure, songs go missing... but its free (with my prime membership) and I can usually find something to replace it with. The problem I have, though, is that lately it has been stopping at irregular intervals and asking if im still listening. I have one particular playlist that is used to get me through medical infusions. I get my IV started and listen to my playlist. I know where I am in the infusion by the song playing. No need to keep pulling out my phone or looking for a clock. My last infusion was interrupted by the “Are you still listening “ thing. I had my phone in my purse across the room. I couldn’t get to it and was left with nothing. Music gets me through these infusions and not having it on was distressing. If im not listening to it, I will stop it on my own. Considering just buying the songs from iTunes and staying uninterrupted. This hasn’t been an issue until just recently but looking online I see other people have been experiencing it for a long time. It may be time to just let my membership expire as this is really the only thing i use of Prime on a usual basis.
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.
Maybe consider this
by osooooom on 2021/05/15 21:41
So, there is this one song that I love, but the artist isn’t putting it on. :( is there some way for me to put that song on their sccount or something? I am not going to search up how to hack because I don’t want to go to the “dark side” also, that would be plain disrespectfull. I’m just saying that I wish there was some way to add to artists albums and stuff, of corse it would have to be approved by the artsist of corse, and if they say no, they would be putting it into considerstion. Or, you could add a clean reviews pole. It would be a better way for artists to get feedback! Just please consider it. One last thing, it keeps delting songs from my playlist. Even though when i search it up on the app it shows up.. really annoying. And the reviews are being honest. It’s REALLLY glitchy. So ummmm, maybe just fix that as well! I’m not mad, promise, it’s just the fact that it is fairly glitchy. Also, i feel like maybe you should atleast have a variaty of wider songs, like Miss Wanna Die, the tiltle may sound bad but i want more than a music box version please. Thank you.
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
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.
Starts out good
by what nick name do you accept on 2020/11/12 18:51
Lots of music choices. Easy to do basics. Many choices in the pull down menus. No instructions whatsoever so not sure what some of the choices do. So you experiment with the and do things that you have no idea how to undo. Example: selected the microphone from list and now whenever I play that playlist it starts playing similar genres not on playlist ( even after you choose to NOT have it play similar songs after playlist is over) The worst thing is the App. It does not ever match what is actually playing. Cannot stop the song playing cuz the app shows the previous song. Have to turn off everything and start from scratch. The echo will not stay paired so have to manually choose echo. Airplay does not work. Have to manually go to settings on device to choose external speaker. Shuffle all song plays the same 10-15 songs over and over. Can only shuffle individual playlists. We’re done
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.
Lots of reliability issues
by bucket of apathy on 2022/01/21 00:07
Super unreliable on mobile platforms. I’ll experience at least some sort of error or a complete program crash multiple times per day, sometimes multiple times during a brief listening session. Rarely is the issue due to a signal loss, especially since i’m almost always in an urban area with either good wifi or good cellular service. The UI is pretty good but for some reason they hid the dislike button. This makes no sense because it exists to help you sort through the songs you like and dont like, all while helping their algorithm find more music for you. Another feature that used to be enjoyable was the X-ray feature. I loved being able to see the lyrics in real time along side the music, but for some reason that feature was modified so that you cant see the lyrics along side the music. Overall the quality could best be described as cromulent. You have a ton of music at your fingertips but the delivery method is substandard. If it wasn’t for the fact that we already have a prime account, id be using a different streaming service.
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😤😡
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.
Not that great
by Coverbird on 2021/10/28 20:35
This app is frustrating. If I put an album an my music and download it then it will still stream it unless I make a playlist and put those tracks in a playlist. So: add album to my music, effectively a playlist. But then I have to make a playlist, name it after the album, add the tracks from my music to match the album in the playlist, then download them. That’s redundant and such a waste of time. Also, the app constantly freezes on several different devices. When driving I have to fight with it for 5 minutes to get it to play music. Some great updates because it never used to be like this. Edit: It seems since switching to iOS 15 that it has not been working. Constantly CarPlay with the Music app says cannot connect, try again. When data was turned on for my app it chewed through all my data because it played ‘online’ playlists and streamed the music despite it being downloaded to my device. I have to enable offline mode to get anything to play (still starting the songs from my phone) and certain playlists don’t show up even though I downloaded them all. I have closed my account and switched to Apple Music. No problems there.
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
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.
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.
New Update RUINED IT!!

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. 🙏

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
This app is fine?
by antinonimous on 2021/08/04 04:53
This app mostly does its job but every few months, the “my soundtrack” section goes completely off the rails and comes up with a genre you’ve never asked for that it will play over and over and over no matter how many times you dislike the songs of that genre. Never listened to Spanish free form jazz? Neither had I until one day that’s ALL it would give me in my “curated playlist based on songs I’ve liked”. Idk what this bug is but now it’s only giving me classic rock… which is better, but still not what I want. I’m not sure what to do to fix it cause I keep pressing the “don’t play songs like this on this station” button only to get MORE songs like that. Sometimes it has no idea what to choose so it defaults to the top songs on the charts but I REALLY don’t wanna hear the same 3 tiktok songs over and over and over. I’ve never once seeked out a Justin Bieber or dua lipa song but after the Spanish jazz was done that’s all it gave me for a week. 95% of the time it works fine but every so often “my soundtrack” is clearly not mine.
It’s pretty good
by Mta5 on 2020/12/21 13:28
Hard to separate the app from the service...you are going to get both here. I have been an unlimited subscriber for more than year. I made the jump because I enjoyed the music, the sound quality is good and the library is enormous. Yes the better content requires you to pay and I’m surprised that people are surprised by that. Though, having artists leave the free version without any sort of warning was annoying. Again, part of the reason for the switch. If you like the service, pay to support it. Makes sense. The app has been buggy for me in past versions. It tended to just restart itself. I’d say maybe the device, but this was the only app that did it. The latest update seems to have corrected the issue. The UI is decent, not fantastic but decent. The auto play feature they added is annoying. I get why it would seem like a good idea...if you play one song it stops. That bothered me at first, but once you realize you told it to play one song and it did exactly what you told it to, the frustration fades. If you want continual play, start a station or playlist. Nothing like playing a song that you know is okay for your 4 year old to hear and then have auto play throw on another song from the genre that absolutely is not. Good thing you can turn that off. In short though, no ads, huge music selection, decent sound quality and a reasonable user interface. It is a good product...one worth paying for.
Badly needed feature
by Sammy-T on 2020/10/15 02:53
I like to shuffle all of my more than four thousand songs so that I always get a really varied listening experience, and I do listen a lot. It would be really cool to be able to play two or more album tracks together regardless of circumstance. That is, these tracks from an album are always played together in one particular order regardless of whether the rest of the music is shuffled or not. Examples: The Beatles” Sgt. Pepper... is always followed by “With a little help from my friends”. Also, from the first Allman Brothers’ album, “Don’t wantcha no more” is always followed by “Cross to bear”. XTC’s “Summer’s cauldron” should always be followed by “Grass”. Pure Prairie League’s “Falling in and out of love” should be followed by “Amy”. That would be a really cool feature and would make my listening experience perfect. As it is I had to make a Connected Songs playlist in order to listen to these sequences the way I prefer.
Bittersweet
by Amyzon71 on 2020/12/16 13:10
I like that this comes with Prime, but I don’t like that the algorithms need more improvement. I end up listening to songs that have very little musical similarity to the song or type of music I choose. Also, at the Home Screen, I am bombarded with a bunch of stations and lists that are piled on top of what I really want, and that’s my recents first. “Stations You Might Like” and such, change every time I listen to a different genre, which makes it hard to explore. I’ll listen to Christmas music one day, and Christian or classical or EDM another day. Every time I change it, all I see suggested is music from the last genre I listened to. It’s like the app thinks I only want to hear what I last chose, instead of seeing that I like ALL kinds of music. I do like the Soundtracks and Discovery Mixes, except that I have never liked pop music, save for a song or artist every once in a great while, and yet it always seems to infiltrate my listening. If I don’t search or listen to Billie Eilish or Post Malone, please stop pushing it on me.
Great all in all, but a few glitches.

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!
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.
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.
Flawless!
by Cap'n marvel on 2021/05/29 06:15
Does everything Apple Music does, but a little bit better. Especially like the “offline mode” and this enables me to use my old iPhone to download and Bluetooth my music when driving, and I can use my main phone for GPS. The quality of the music while streaming can be selected to use less data if need be. This service is WELL worth the money spent. I have several gigs downloaded, and the downloads on the device can be deleted and new songs added within seconds while on WiFi. The only drawback? Only one device can be used at a time unless you pay extra. Not an issue in my situation. There’s the benefit of Alexa; she can shuffle from your downloaded music or you can create a station and stream whatever you are in the mood to hear. Having the larger file size going through two Exos-9 speakers is the definition of “immersive”.
This app is sinking
by Bakingapps5150 on 2022/04/15 11:02
I’ve dealt with this app for 5 years not out of necessity but because it’s the only app I have that plays with my screen off. I know there are others I can use that can be better but it surprises me that this was the first to boast “it has millions of songs it can recognize any song you ask even just the title” wrong. this app doesn’t have rap it barely has any new music and any music you can recall good luck cause if you can find the album 9 times out of 10 it doesn’t even have the song you want because of and I’ve seen it say to me multiple times “song can’t be played due to licensing issues”. And now Alexa she is so broken I can’t even get it to play a Motley Crue song from a james brown song and for the latter of any songs it plays it’s always some random artist playing a cover or a whole different song. And it plays generic songs you can hear on the radio after any playlist you make or finish playing. Also last thing that’s a problem you alter my playlists and take out songs I chose and render my entire playlist and my music useless to remove or replace them.
What happened ??
by Skarekrow92 on 2022/04/07 05:06
Really liked the app when I first got it, but for the past month or so it has been VERY unreliable. I listen to it in offline mode most of the time and it’ll have issues when I try to play/skip/prev music from my watch (won’t do the action or it’ll take 15-40 seconds to actually do the action), it’ll just force close randomly (really annoying cuz it’s basically a playlist for while I’m working, and I don’t want to have to open the app 4-9 times while I’m at work), and if I skip 4 or 5 songs in a row the app just freezes and it seems like it force closes 30-40% of the time (keep in mind this is while it’s in offline mode so the music is supposed to be “downloaded”). There are some little things about the app I don’t like, and the biggest thing aside from the issues I’m having with it right now is that they make music unavailable (I assume for licensing/contractual issues), but I was always willing to put up with it, but this is driving me nuts right now and I’m not going to keep paying money for an app that I constantly have to mess with just to get it to work sometimes.
Buggy
by Freshsta on 2020/12/16 11:52
First of all I want to be clear that I’m reviewing the app not the service, the subscription, or even specifically the overall song selection which on a sidenote I’m quite happy with. Overall the app is pretty solid and allows you to explore different music and now you can do podcast and videos which is a nice ad on but I primarily use it for the music. The search function could be a little more comprehensive and user-friendly but it’s not bad. The main reason I only gave it three stars was because it’s so buggy! Almost every other time I open the app and start playing music and lock my phone and walk away from it to either go work out or if it’s in my car, the music suddenly stops because the app just closes randomly. This gets super frustrating because it happens so often. This happened on my iPhone 11 and is still happening on my iPhone 12 Pro Max. This is not a new problem that I have encountered and I’m surprised it hasn’t been fixed yet.

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.
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
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.
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.
why the glitching
by i hay love wilson nonnon on 2021/11/27 08:22
uhm so this app is great but the glitching is making me really upset and it’s only on songs i listen to multiple times a day. also why does a microphone appear at the top sometimes? i always thought that oh it’s not recording me or anything but i guess not because now in one of the songs i listen too after the first 40 seconds it switches into splatoon music that i can tell was recorded from their app because it sounds like it’s coming off of my nintendo. just great cuz not only are the songs glitching and skipping to random parts, but they are including audio recorded from their own music app into the songs i listen to. i might have to stop using this app it’s really making me upset and paranoid Edit: Gotten even more glitchy. can listen to my playlists on shuffle anymore because the button isn’t working, which is making me super upset, because i like listening to my music in a different order than it’s lined up in the playlist, but i can’t anymore because the button won’t work.
Just a bug fest
by Mcbeanarooniebot on 2021/11/07 15:17
The app was fine but after the most recent update using this app is the most frustrating thing you’ll do all day. If you’re music pauses to load it either will just stop playing and you can only play the same song on repeat or you have to change the playlist or station completely. Or if it plays the same song and you try to skip it, it will just pause whatever song you’re on. It is the worst when you are driving to the point that it is almost unusable. Also, it will continue to suggest the same music or podcasts no matter how many times you ignore podcasts or don’t click on a playlist. They used to have community playlists which I enjoyed listening to but now those aren’t available and anytime I try to listen to any I have saved it returns the most annoying error message that you have to close about 15 times before you can do anything else. This app was fine before the update but now is actually trash so I just wish they would take it back.
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!
New User Interface is horrid
by stormblade00 on 2021/12/05 21:41
Ive never felt compelled to leave a bad review but this new update is so bad. I wish they would tell you what you’re updating other than just “bug fixes”. I don’t think changing the entire way the app looks counts as a bug fix. Up until about 6 months ago I had no complaints with the app, and then they changed the UI the first time. I didn’t like it but I learned to live with it. They randomly this morning the way the whole album section is designed changed. You can press a filter to change the album layout back to whats close to the old version, but it doesn’t save when you leave albums and have to press it again when you come back. Also now when I click on an album it shows me the whole thing and not just the songs I have downloaded. Again, you can filter it to just show you downloaded music, and again it resets as soon as you leave that album to go to another one. Please for the love of everything revert this update and tell us when you’re changing the app for things no one asked for.
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).
Not happy with the latest & “greatest”, plus a bug
by BPhillips1114 on 2022/03/22 16:25
Need to be able to permanently change display within the app. I don’t like the default way it lists bands in my library. I’m also generally unhappy with the layout once I get into an artist page. Way too cumbersome, not streamlined to find what I’ve already downloaded (albums, etc). I shouldn’t have to navigate past material I haven’t downloaded (most likely because I’m not interested) to get to the stuff I have downloaded. Should have the option to load *my library* first, with the option of perusing other works by the artist at my discretion… As far as the bug: When I open & go to my Library, it will not let me scroll down to “Recents”. It acts as though it’s at the bottom, even though I do catch a glimpse of the Recents (Song History, etc). Only way to correct it is by shutting down the app completely & re-launching (thereby pausing/cancelling the music I’m downloading, which is ironic because that’s exactly why I’m checking ‘Recents’ in the first place…)
