Crashes, won’t open
by v22556677 on 2021/12/04 16:49
I’ve used this for years and have always loved it but now the app won’t even open. Crashes seconds after opening. I don’t know who to contact.
wish it was easier to use
by sukkie914 on 2021/12/04 16:37
Adding songs to my favorites or ones that I purchased to a playlist could be more intuitive. I do like the Discovery mix and can see overall that the app is okay, just needs to focus more on simplifying how people can create and manage their playlists easily and enjoyably.
What’s up with the crash?
by KeepinItReal206 on 2021/12/04 16:21
Nice app but after installing the latest version 10.19.1 and the app crashed multiple times when trying to add a song to my playlist. Please fix!
Update is hard to move music in playlist
by Gadget19ks on 2021/12/04 16:12
The update made it impossible to rearrange music in a playlist. Moving songs up takes forever. Please add the scroll back so the list auto scrolls when you move a song up or down.
Good

Fidelity is good and it’s nice to have music stores
New app update destroys the library
by djadams17 on 2021/12/04 14:55
Instead of opening up your library, you know, the whole reason you have music on your phone, it now opens the artists online page when you open from the library. So you now have to scroll through albums and garbage just to find what you are looking for. Making things way more inconvenient. I don’t get it. They had a well designed app. Trash now
This app just gets worse and worse and worse
by Rumboogy33 on 2021/12/04 09:27
The whole thing is one massive upsell now. You have to jump through multiple hoops to find the music that you selected without accidentally subscribing to the paid service.
Playback Error
by BoujeeBae on 2021/12/04 06:54
This is horrible. Can't play any music on my phone but on my iPad?? Both devices are authorized unlike the error message keeps suggesting talking about some modifications?? My phone isn't jailbroken or anything and all the things customer support suggest DO NOT WORK refreshing, force closing, uninstalling reinstalling, clearing cache-- all useless. This app is unplayable and I'm a unlimited member and can't play any songs on my main device my phone. 😡
Locks up and crashes constantly
by Mmeyere30 on 2021/12/04 05:24
Nearly impossible to use this app for the past several months. Don’t know what happened. I’ve tried device resets, updating and deleting/reinstalling the app. No help. Bad software.
Hope you like making playlists
by Toggery on 2021/12/04 05:10
Recent update seems to have broken a very convenient feature: selecting a song by an artist out of the list and having it just continue to play other songs by that same artist. That was a surprise picking a song and having it just repeat the same song instead of going through the list. Why you’d think you want the default behavior to be repeat one song is beyond me. And I haven’t found a way other than making a playlist to make it cooperate.
Loved Amazon music until
by kevinamazonmusic on 2021/12/04 02:00
Until the most recent update. When you go to your artist in your library it now takes you to the artiest profile instead of your saved/downloaded music like how it did previously. Clearly not very intuitive switching to Apple Music
Can’t use hands free
by dffdgffvgfyfhfgcgvgf on 2021/12/04 00:55
Since the latest updates I can’t use hands free to talk to Alexa with my van’s Kenwood stereo. This is a feature I truly miss.
it lags every time i try
by Toadallly on 2021/12/04 00:08
every time i try to listen to music on amazon, it seems like it takes forever. it's not my wifi, but the app physically lagging.

Good but at times frustrating
by Avalanche0095 on 2021/12/03 19:38
Everything is great on the app, other then it randomly crashing, or playing podcasts I’ve already heard but it generates as the podcast as unheard for some reason, otherwise great music quality.

Not the best music app anymore
by Kai 💕🥰 on 2021/12/03 18:17
I have been using Amazon Music app since I’ve been a freshman in college. ( over four years ago) This app is frustratingly annoying for several of reasons. Sometimes i have to keep switching my shuffle on numerous of times. When the older version of this app i didn’t have to do that. You have to redownload nearly everything quite so often, especially when you do an update for the app. I have not one notion of why i would have to redownload music if it’s already downloaded. I would hate to convert to Apple Music again but it seems like i have no choice at this point. Please do something about the glitches in this app. Sincerely from an Unsatisfied customer !
After the last 5-6 updates I hate this app
by Su Dokai on 2021/12/03 17:50
I’m constantly fighting with this app to play my playlists and not Amazons choices. It actually added Michael Buble’s Christmas songs. I hate his music. I don’t want a car mode. I want one mode that plays the music I select especially since I’m paying monthly to do so. Once again a good product is ruined by all the quirky bad ideas of latecomers. Where’s the throwback button when you need it?

Not like it used to be
by Guy Dangerous 1234 on 2021/12/03 16:54
Previously, before the recent major update, everything was okay. As soon as it updated, the app was VERY glitchy. Sometimes, I try to open the app and it is either a black screen that will not load or just kicks me out back to the Home Screen. It did not used to do this. Plus, every time I launch the app after having closed it for a while, it leaves off on a completely different song than I was listening to before I close the app, sometimes not even on the same playlist or album. One more thing to mention, it is now a pain to navigate, and sometimes songs pause for a couple seconds for no apparent reason. Though it is a great music platform, it has been heavily flawed.
Why are you still playing R.Kelly?
by Qtypie2115 on 2021/12/03 15:12
Yup? I asked you about this before. Then I didn’t listen to the 90s. Now I’ve gotten back into listening to the 90s. It did take 3 months of listening before he popped up and it was one of his lesser known songs. So it was also like if I hadn’t grown up in the 90s maybe I wouldn’t have known it was him. I did grow up in the 90s. I knew it was him and I did dislike it. I’m of the opinion that NO ONE wants to hear his music. NO ONE wants to support this disgusting human. So I ask the question again WHY IS AMAZON MUSIC STILL CHOOSING TO PLAY R.KELLY???? I also just checked and noticed you didn’t put my review up?
Good when it actually works
by A80 CPC on 2021/12/03 13:49
Too many times it stops playing and is “loading.” Every internet search, data application, et cetera works at the same time except Amazon Music. So that tells me it isn’t an Apple or Verizon or WiFi issue, but an Amazon problem.

Can’t listen unless on WiFi
by Chmttn on 2021/12/03 13:06
Since Amazon music added the HD features about a month or so ago I can’t listen to music unless on WiFi it says i have no internet and switches to offline mode while driving I have 5G so no reason for it. It’s pretty frustrating.! So I haven’t really been using it. I have to listen to the radio. When will you fix this.?? We pay for this
PLEASE stop changing the app for no reason!
by HeavyMetalMusicMan on 2021/12/03 12:33
The continuous format changing is out of control. This latest update changed the UI to match Spotify - but I chose Amazon Music because it WASN’T like Spotify. At least give us the option to retain previous settings/layouts each week when you roll out frivolous changes.

Garbage
by Eyehaytegugle on 2021/12/03 04:31
Constant crashing, lagging, and stalling. I can’t believe I paid money for this app. It’s the buggiest piece of crap app I’ve ever used. Literally unusable some days.
So…. Many…. Bugs…. Lately
by Jarmiannie on 2021/12/03 03:32
App force closes when I try to download a song or add it to a playlist. Offline mode doesn’t work. Will give it another day, but with so many options, why pay for an inferior product 🤷‍♂️
Bad memory
by JJJJ78643 on 2021/12/03 02:42
I downloaded Amazon music in February because it showed I can get more free songs than I can with Apple music. But not for the past 5 months. It won't play my songs. It always say I haven't downloaded any music. Its always telling me I am in offline mode. I don't want to go online because it uses up to much data. But I should be able to play my songs in off line mode without the app continuously asking me every time if I want to go to online mode when I open the app. No I just want to play the songs with out it buffering or unable to load. I pay a monthly subscription I should not be having these issues.
Suggestions
by Haljee on 2021/12/03 02:01
I love this app but Y’know what would be more awesome? If it had a yearly wrap like Spotify. Just sayin’ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I love that one could put in an artist and will hear it most the time. Don’t mind the mixing in of other artists either but like that the majority are the artist of choice. You all rock (no pun intended). 👍
Constant crashing & freezing
by Moogsworth on 2021/12/02 22:14
I was hopeful that the recent facelift would fix the constant crashing, lagging, freezing, but instead it is only getting worse. It’s impossible to use this without frustration, glad I’m no longer paying for Unlimited as I wouldn’t be able to access my music. Also no feature to report problems with albums that won’t play or won’t play correctly. Ugh.
Love it
by bluesmanlocal5 on 2021/12/02 21:55
I’m 65 and not at all techie but I just discovered that I can click on “ songs “ and see a whole bunch more than what is initially offered. I now have several Pearl Jam Corduroy songs on a brand new playlist. 😀

I’m gonna leave and do Spotify if I don’t start seeing statistics for my music at the end of the year. I always think it’s so cool and that it shouldn’t be hard to do. It’s been a few years and Amazon music has stayed been lagging on this
Paying Customer
by Nobody from Noplace on 2021/12/02 15:42
As a whole home music experience it is a good value and a great product. Desktop interfacing might be required, but as one who pays for additional connectivity otherwise too, the mobile use of this app is fantastic. Making even the car radio obsolete.
by Josiepozey7 on 2021/12/02 12:32
Whenever I go into Amazon music it always uses my voice even when I don’t use the Alexa. And the refresh and not having every song that annoys me.
Content is great, UI is awful.
by Ejdev on 2021/12/02 03:48
EVERY. SINGLE. UPDATE. The UI gets worse with every update. Artist screen now defaults to the stupid grid view. Great for a computer monitor, stupid on a phone screen. If I select an artist from my library it defaults to “Unlimited” and I have to hit “Library” again to see their songs in my library… I’M ALREADY IN MY LIBRARY!!! IF I WANTED SONGS NOT IN MY LIBRARY I WOULDN’T BE IN MY LIBRARY!!!
Please reduce the + ads
by JeffPT on 2021/12/02 03:27
Amazon Prime free music service is good. One complaint is the constant harping to upgrade to Music Plus.
Can’t play song
by gavin koehler on 2021/12/02 02:31
For some reason when ever I try to play righteous by Juice WRLD it skips the song then the song after that then plays the next song even if it’s downloaded or online I still can’t play the song it’s really really confusing and the problem with that is it’s one of my favorite songs play and even if I play on Alexa still will skip this song and then the song after and so on it’s really annoying
Works great for my music interests
by Scottish deerhound on 2021/12/02 02:09
I’m an old guy. I want to listen to a broad range of classical music by a variety of artists and composers, and original cast albums from Broadway shows. Having the unlimited access to all these recordings is perfect for me. I love it
”sorry we are unable to play this episode”
by SteamChain on 2021/12/02 00:58
For some reason, I constantly get “sorry we are unable to play this episode” when playing podcasts even though the music works fine. Any ideas? Otherwise I love it.
Good but add more songs
by lgshj on 2021/12/02 00:54
I am a music fan and I love all the songs they play but rainbow high are my favorite singers and search doesn’t know what I’m talking about when I search it up so maybe add some more songs including rainbow high but everything else is good. This app is really good but another thing I would advise is to give us notifications when updating because one time it was updating and I had to re-login
13.0 or older?
by rjdhdbdjdjjbdhssh on 2021/12/01 23:43

by jakey/puddin on 2021/12/01 21:12
i have used apple music for 2 years with my alexa, now its only letting me use amazon music which is terrible and has little to no music. F amazon.
If you wanna listen to music, go elsewhere.
by Twickzz on 2021/12/01 20:39
I have never had such bad things to say about an app. DO NOT get amazon music. I can have full bars or be hooked up to wifi and the music will STILL take minutes to load, or NOT LOAD AT ALL. The shuffle function is absolutely obsolete, as it only plays the same 5 shuffle playlists each time. God forbid you want to listen to a specific song, bc it wont automatically shuffle after that! The app is always fritzing out, “starting fresh”, or something… Also, I hope you wnjoy your songs randomly disappearing, or getting switched to a clean version without your knowledge :) youre probably still wondering, why do you have amazon music still? as if its my choice! I have 1,500+ songs in my library that i would have to manually redo on any other music app…. and with that I am switching this week, thats how bad Amazon music is.
why
by safford1977 on 2021/12/01 20:25
why is it so hard to simply play the music I’ve already purchased without constantly being harassed to purchase a monthly subscription. I resent the suggestion I should pay twice!
It’s okay
by skoty335 on 2021/12/01 20:22
Wish I could access all of the music. Why show me albums and then say I can only play them in certain devices? So lame.

App no longer works
by hoeky19 on 2021/12/01 17:14
The app now crashes often after a recent update, and I have to constantly delete and reinstall it. iOS 14 and 15, and bug reports have so far gone unanswered. Please issue a fix immediately, or I will switch to a new service.
Frustrating App
by cs8397 on 2021/12/01 17:08
It regularly crashes when I use it with CarPlay. Takes forever to boot up. I’m get very close tk cancelling and using a different service.
APP CRASHES CONSTANTLY!
by Brando_taytay on 2021/12/01 15:37
The stupid app crashes constantly or will just restart itself in the middle of the sun, 5 mins after opening the app for the first time. Plus I pay for UNLIMITED, yet EVERY time a new song in my library comes up, I get this notification that it can’t find the song and should I start fresh? Okay I get every 10th song or something, but this is now every, single, song. Every single song! That’s ridiculous. I mean, That’s a lot. I’m fixing to go back to my regular subscription and REMOVE the unlimited subscription altogether! Ugh fix your crap, Amazon geez!
iOS update
by Murdawg81 on 2021/12/01 15:15
Since the newest iOS update, the app has not worked well at all. Streaming a complete song without buffering several times is a rarity. I use the app daily for hours at a time and am becoming very frustrated. I’ve used the app for years and never had the extent of issues I am now having, trying to listen to music.
Amazon Music
by Voodooblood on 2021/12/01 15:12
Fantastic, Love it!!
Good music, poor functionality
by sturmichka on 2021/12/01 13:48
I have always enjoyed the almost limitless music available on Amazon Music. However, for the last couple of months, the app has been crap. I can’t get it to work in my car or outside of my home network for more than a few minutes without the mysterious “Amazon network error.” Even when I manually switch to offline mode, this happens. I don’t use cell data for the app and have my playlists downloaded to my phone. Anyway, good music, the app is crap.
Just pay the extra $2 for Spotify
by duckstew1234567890 on 2021/12/01 13:29
For a paid premium service from a company the size of Amazon, paying for Spotify will be a better experience all around. You won’t have to uninstall and reinstall the app constantly to correct update glitches. The algorithm for Spotify more “interestingly” compiles music suggestions. And you won’t have to readd music to your library because for whatever reason Amazon launches one version and then removes it from the Amazon library within a few months and uploads a newer version or something along those lines. The Amazon music app also crashes when you add music sometimes. It’s really fun if you find a new song you like. Some of their stations will only play the same 5 songs until you listen to all of them. Overall it’s annoying. It gets 3 stars because I save $$ as a Prime Member.
Needs improvement
by Zpm679087665 on 2021/12/01 12:51
Normally, I love this app. Access to a ton of music, great stations to stream, easy usage. But recently I’ve gotten incredibly frustrated using this app. Songs that I have downloaded to my phone sometimes have to load, sometimes for a full minute before it finally plays. What was the point of downloading the song if I have to wait for it to load regardless. Additionally I like to make my own playlists. I’m not sure how the shuffle algorithm works but lately when I hit shuffle the app only plays songs near the original song I selected. I genuinely enjoy the app, but it’s frustrating that an app I pay 10.99 monthly for doesn’t work like it should.
Search Bar
by No Season ONE! on 2021/12/01 04:10
I have been struggling to find the specific song in my playlist. It would be really nice to have a search bar in the playlist.. could you possibly put that in next update? It would be greatly appreciated! Other than that I love using this app for my music.
Newest update is horrible
by kickpuncher92 on 2021/12/01 04:07
The november update completely ruined the app…the UI makes no sense and you have to click about 15 buttons to find music in your own library
Updates are setting the app backwards
by Devinms94 on 2021/12/01 03:53
Amazon music has been my primary music app for the longest but lately many of the updates are causing the app to become unstable and super temperamental. From the shuffle button not working as intended to causing the app to crash, adding songs to my music caused the app to crash as well, and sometimes my playlists will just disappear for days and then just randomly reappear. I’ve never had these problems before October and I’ve done everything from deleting the app to deleting the cache and contacting support but it seems like it’s an issue Amazon needs to fix on their end. But all in all the app is good but the update’s lately are setting it back rather than forward.
The newest version is terrible.
by v0lcom13snow on 2021/12/01 03:05
please change it back. the new version of this app is awful to navigate through.
Amazon music

Amazon music is amazing
Skips mid track, changes speed and is a disappointment since update
by Create the future on 2021/12/01 00:23
I tried to contact support, except I was only taken to a page or forums. This is awful because I pay for a premium subscription. So.... hopefully amazon reads reviews. Since updating the app, about every third song plays for 15 seconds, then skips to the next track. Doesn’t matter the artist or playlist. additionally, the player speeds up and slows down the tempo of the songs randomly and distorts sound. This has been happening since the update. Please fix.
Shuffle is Broken or something
by i have an iphone 4 on 2021/12/01 00:04
Ok so every time I shuffle one of my two playlists (each having close or over 300 songs), I always hear the same ten songs at first. And I mean ALWAYS. I wasn’t going to write a review for it, but like, it just keeps happening so there’s no way it’s just by chance. Like I’ve got 290 other songs, you don’t have to play these ten every time, y’know? The app is good besides that, but I would love it if we could share our playlists like Spotify does. I really like the playlists that Amazon makes, but there’s just not enough of them.
Ui Changes
by Syhnyster on 2021/11/30 23:41
This is my first review. Change the UI back to what it used to be. The updated UI is terrible. I like to be able to see all songs I have by an artist. Not have to select the album first.
The app layout is terrible

App makes me not use it
by JCusta on 2021/11/30 19:21
Not that I have an issue with content, which is fine as a perk of having Amazon Prime. Issue is that the content will be stuck on buffering and won’t play only to land on Playback Issues screen. Restarting the app doesn’t work. Restarting the phone doesn’t work most of the time. It’s frustrating to use. One podcast episode will work fine….then the next will have the same issue. It’s not my internet as I’ve verified it’s fine by using Spotify and other apps and web. I’m using iPhone 13 pro and it happens on 5G or Wi-Fi. No issues with other apps at all. Another reason why I would never pay for unlimited

Streams music you have downloaded
by er1234123 on 2021/11/30 14:36
If you download songs in your play list to save data, it still streams them unless you go into offline mode. It also uses data excessively. At standard quality it’s using more than 1 GB an hour streaming music, no video. That’s a crazy amount of data for streaming music.
This new update is annoying
by Mooshbutt48291736372)3 on 2021/11/30 00:00
Please fix the shuffle feature. I was annoyed enough when shuffle wouldn’t work automatically and it would only shuffle songs after the one you picked, but now shuffle doesn’t even do anything when you choose a song and it just repeats the same song. I love Amazon music because they have Dolby atmos Taylor swift but it’s no fun if I can’t choose which song I want to start the shuffle :(
TOO MANY ISSUES WITH APP
by Laffy4455 on 2021/11/29 23:15
The price and music selection are great but if I can’t even play it with out the app crashing every 15 seconds it’s almost not worth it. Playing it at home on an echo device or the tv works great, but when I try to hook my phone up to my vehicle or another device it’s like pulling teeth to get this thing to work. It crashes for any little thing you do. Don’t even think about playing offline because that is just impossible. It’s not like I am using some old outdated device or vehicle. I have an iPhone 12 and a 2018 vehicle. All the devices I use are less than 5 years old that I hook up to as well. The app needs to be fixed. There are way too many quirks. If it were not for the other devices I can listen to music on and the family price then I would go back to iTunes music.
Amazon music keeps quitting

My wifi is strong so it’s not that. Speaker is fine because I use it to listen to other music streaming apps. It’s just not worth it.
Latest updates have broken a lot.
by Brownings on 2021/11/29 22:04
The last few updates have messed up a lot of the app's functionality. Stations will stop playing after 3 or 4 songs. The worst part is the push for online content. Even though you've downloaded an artists albums, when you go into the artist page, it'll take you into the Unlimited version instead of just what's in your Library. You can click the Library button, but this won't stay on, so if you back out and go back in again, you're no longer in your Library, instead you're back on the online Unlimited page. Even in your Library functionality is gone. The old app had a list of all your Library songs. You could click one at the top and it would just keep going down through all the atist's albums and songs till it hit the end. It now just lists 3 songs. Click on any of those and it'll play the single song then stop. The devs need to seriously roll back some of these terrible improvements.
Downloaded music filter broken
by George98796(44 on 2021/11/29 21:46
Something happened where my downloaded music is not visible in my library by filter, though appears to still be downloaded. For example on albums where I downloaded certain songs I cannot just see and play those downloaded songs by album any longer.
Slow music
by avuong43 on 2021/11/29 21:34
The music always is loading or cuts out
Better As Of Late
by GetMy*Wet on 2021/11/29 21:24
Excellent improvements in recent updates, desktop app and Apple tv app are overdue for similar improvements. Yes, some use the desktop app.
UNLIMITED!!
by unicorn love and puppy on 2021/11/29 20:03
I have had this app for years and as a family no one likes this unlimited idea. The app in general phenomenal but… I get you use unlimited to make money but as like the BIGGEST company in the US I think unlimited is a little to far. Just so you know how much I like this app I really do truest love it. ❤️ I understand that this is for money and money equals things and things equals wealth but still can’t we think about all those people who buy 100s of 1000 of dollars worth on Amazon to find THIS! But in general great app. Nice work.

Why can’t I listen to Tupac without every word being censored, even when I’m listening to the explicit version? It’s ridiculous.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
Keep listening feedback is annoying
by HillaryLaweeze on 2020/05/19 15:37
I hate many things about this app, but the feature most bothersome to me of late is the keep listening feature. The sleep timer is turned off, but every hour I get asked am I still listening to music. Did I stop the music?! I have my device plugged in across the room because it’s not compatible with Legrand digital audio (fix this too!). So, every hour when the music stops I have to go press keep listening. I’m not opposed to exercise, but I’m trying to work, and this incessant disruption makes me want to pay for a different streaming music service. This should only happen if I engaged the sleep timer. This is a useless feature, especially if I am actually streaming on WiFi and have the stream only on WiFi feature engaged or am in offline mode listening to downloaded music. Get rid of this. Another huge annoyance is the amount of data this app uses even in data saver mode. My daily commute (160 minutes total streaming time) uses 1 GB of data! Maybe it would use less data if the lyrics feature could be disabled. Finally your app support was useless for providing feedback, so hopefully someone is reading these reviews.
Good but can be better
by Colbat King on 2020/04/07 23:38
Good app but has a few annoying problems. They allow you to view most of your favorite music but the problem is, the unlimited music thing. You have to pay a small amount of money for hundreds of good songs. Mostly any good song is in the unlimited music part. It’s really annoying. Anyway you pay a small amount but over time it becomes a lot of money. It’s really bothering wand I wish they would stop the unlimited music thingy. But even if they wanted to keep it maybe take off a chunk of songs so we can have good music.( Developers this might get you more customers!) but in truth is an okay app. I would say go ahead but be warned a lot of songs are restricted so it’s quite annoying. Me and my friends have been really bothered and have started to go to other apps. I can’t though because I have an awesome dad who is watching out for me and let’s me use this app but I’m starting to get to the point where I’d rather have no music than this app. It’s getting on my nerves. People! Be WARNED!!! It could bug you Badly. But it’s a good app and if you want go ahead. I just can’t express how annoying this can be.
Possibly the most frustrating music app
by Floody85 on 2019/06/06 01:50
I am currently subscribed to the unlimited and will be done with it for good after June is over. Short version; of you have prime then it’s included, great. Otherwise save your money. I like to listen to stations as it gives me a better variety; first off the variety of similar artists was soo off pace for the first few days I was pressing thumbs down more than I was anything else. These were stations I created and couldn’t believe there were algorithms out there saying they were similar artists, furthermore it would continually throw the same artists I thumbed down MULTIPLE Times in there with different songs that weren’t any better. Secondly and possibly even more frustrating is that when I paused a song and then would go to press play on that song 5-10 minutes later I would just get the “loading song” description and that’s it. I would then need to skip or push to the next song ,then press play again in order for it to start playing music. Lastly if I searched an artist and then created a station off of that artist I would notice that if paused that station and then resumed within 5-10 minutes it wouldn’t resume on the station it would resume on most previously searched artist.. free pandora is a better choice than the current state
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Improve shuffle!
by kelsarro on 2019/11/24 21:16
Overall the app is decent. I have been able to discover a lot of new artists and songs that I enjoy from the artist radios and suggestions. Here are my cons: Artist radios.. I have avoided thumbs-upping any songs that I like. I have found that when I do, it will play those songs that I thumbs-upped first every single time I play that particular radio. I guess that’s the point but I end up hating the song because it becomes way overplayed. Which is kind of how Pandora’s radio is. It’s just annoying. So don’t thumbs up anything unless you want to eventually hate it. Shuffle on My Music.. needs some improvement. It seems like the algorithm needs work or something because it will shuffle and play THE SAME SONGS and then there are songs that I will never ever hear. I end up removing songs from My Music just because the shuffle seems to love playing it. I end up letting it play alphabetically just so I can hear my other songs. That’s terrible! Also, I have noticed that the shuffle will turn off by itself if I am connecting Bluetooth. That might be unavoidable but I thought I would mention that.
New Update RUINED IT!!
by AlicksterJ on 2019/09/03 05:26
This is a great app! I can’t deny that it is extremely useful and easy to use— and is ideal for anyone who likes to listen to music on the go— however, after updating to the most recent version of the app, I have found that after a mandatory refresh, all my music was GONE! I had downloaded well over 3,000 songs (as an Unlimited subscriber) and was very disappointed to find all that gone. Not only that, but every thirty seconds the app crashes and restarts— making it to where it would be virtually impossible to re-download all those missing songs unless I had god-speed wifi, which, I regret to inform you, I do not have. I hope this is not the case through every device using the app, but it is the case for me and it is very disheartening, as I do not have data on my device and cannot access wifi 24/7 to where I could simply use it without downloads. All I ask is that the crashing gets resolved. Restarting my device did not help, either, so I believe it is the app itself. But also, please do not remove all of one’s offline music in the next update please. 🙏
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.
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😤😡
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
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.
Having issues PLEASE FIX ASAP
by Muttdog56 on 2021/07/30 05:31
Love the app but I’ve found where the issue lies. When I go to download my playlist I hit the download button the it says it’s downloading but it isn’t but right after I hit the download button I’ll go to play a song and it will not bring up the song being played then it will freeze the whole app so then I close it out and the music still plays even after I close the app it’ll play for at least an extra 15 seconds please fix this because I have to download my music as my service is terrible where I live and don’t have WiFi all the time. Thank you so much! Also now when I hit my playlist it takes 30 seconds to even load the playlist before it goes in then I play music and try to immediately skip the song and it just craps out. I just updated the app today July 29, 2021 and I’m still having major issues. Just fix the issues the people are telling 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.
Like it

So far it’s working out well, I do like the Alexa feature, but it doesn’t work when my iPad isn't active so you still have to push buttons. LOL. So far I’ve been able to find all the music I have been looking for, time will tell, can’t give them five stars because there’s always room for improvement in the structure of the app. For example if you go to play Lady Gaga, it will only play the same four songs over and over until you actually go and open it up and make them play the full playlist, that seems like a waste of time, who would ask to play Lady Gaga and only want the same four songs? Should just give u the full list right off. Some of the other controls and features take a while to hunt and peck to find as well, some work on the user-friendly interface wouldn’t hurt. Overall for the music that I listen to, I don’t find the monthly subscription fee overly excessive. I will continue to enjoy your product. Thank you
It’s 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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
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
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.
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!
Music quality A++ but a few fixes would make it 5 stars
by ACGoris on 2020/03/05 16:18
The good: pretty broad selection, lots of ultra-HD, and the sound is great. The medium: some of the ultra-HD of old classic rock has been remixed. In some cases this is good when some bass has been added back in that wasn’t possible in the original due to the dynamic range limitations of vinyl. In some cases the bass is a little over done, but still probably a little better than the original. In other mixes, it just doesn’t sound quite right, since the original art was the product of the musicians and the mixers at the time. When this happens, the feel is similar to watching a colorized veesion of a classic black-and-white film. Needs work: The user interface is clunky; search often misses songs you’re looking for,so you have to try different ways of getting to what you want, and when listening in the car, the iPhone app hangs when you lose service and often doesn’t resume playing once you have service again.
Problems keep it from being great
by small hobbit on 2019/12/09 15:55
I like to download music; this is because I’m not always on wi-fi, and still use an iPod Touch. The problem is there doesn’t seem to be a clear way to delete downloaded songs from the device. This causes bloat as songs that I no longer want downloaded are seemingly stuck. Another issue I have, that honestly isn’t as major, is that if I try to update a downloaded playlist instead of overwriting the existing downloaded version it makes a new numerical numbered playlist (so it creates a “playlist 1” instead of overwriting the playlist there) Not as big of an issue since playlists can easily be deleted, it’s just annoying. I’m also strangely getting different suggestions in the web version than I am in the app; I do like both kinds, I just can’t figure out why these are different and why I can’t get the suggestions I’m getting on the website in the app. This is because the ONLY suggestions I’ve been getting in app are alternative, which is okay, but is far from the only bands I listen to.
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”.
It’s Great, But....
by Phillybobjr on 2020/02/25 04:32
I love the app and I’m so happy to finally have an app to get all my music, my only complaint is that they don’t have every song I want. Like some of my songs I understand why they don’t have, they’re not from a super famous artists, but then there’s others. One example is the song Tonight (I’m Loving You) by Enrique Iglesias, I cant find it, and I do understand it’s not the original version of what I understand but I don’t get why it’s not there. Like with Enrique there’s some other artist that the one song I wanted from them isn’t there (ex. Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, by Set it off). And the worst of it isn’t that the song just isn’t their. It’s that there’s always some weird parody of the song that doesn’t sound good, this is my one complaint, so if they’re could be a way to possibly request songs to add to the carts library of music it would be perfect.
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.

Love it, but app has some quirks
by VT_Freshy on 2020/02/05 14:32
This is really a 4.5 star rating, but rounding. I’ve been a Prime member for about 15 years now and have had the Music app for about 3 with Unlimited. Love the service, but the app has been significantly slower recently when accessing music, beginning mid to late 2019. Another issue with the app is that your offline and online playlists don’t sync. If you make one offline, it should copy the list to online when you connect, so that you can play it through your Echo devices - by it doesn’t. Same goes for making one online, it is not accessible when I’m offline mode, regardless of whether individual songs are downloaded. Would love to see this simple improvement made, as well as a return to more responsive operation such as not taking 30 seconds in some cases to start a song that is on the device.
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.
Area To Improve
by Butuandan on 2019/09/01 03:22
Offline playlist setup not as user friendly. Please improve your service because internet connection is sometimes unreliable. Also, it would help a lot when I am on airplane mode. Thanks. You need to add better dialogue with your user when he accesses different pages. I am left guessing because many of the subsequent steps are hidden. Keep testing your system and analyze the clicks of your new users and trace the ways by which you could make your app friendlier. Please. September 1, 2019: I noticed improvements. Thanks. Invite communities of testers. From teenagers to parents to seniors, let them navigate your dialogues when selecting songs to downloading them while on offline mode. You need to learn from their mistakes thus allowing you to design your improvements where it is needed. More needs to be done. You are not there yet. Good luck.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
Frustrating
by TheRealCombat on 2019/10/01 15:37
As long as you are in a good service area it’s fine. However, the second it has a network connection issue it just gives up and stops playing music. Even if the song is already fully buffered! This is really annoying when driving through rural areas. It will randomly quit playing and pop up a modal window saying there was a network connection issue and to retry again later with a stronger connection. It does this when I have service and I can even watch the buffer continue to load in the background. Pressing play does not resume playing at this point, instead you have to skip the song to get it going again. When I’m working on a project in my shop I’m at the limit of my home WiFi. My phone will bounce around between LTE and WiFi. It seems to cause this app to just randomly stop playing. It doesn’t display a message saying why, it just stops playing. It’s always right after I get my hands dirty and don’t want to touch my phone. I mean, come on... 😕
Still a few basic features missing.
by Hawks fan #4517 on 2018/12/25 03:51
Playlists that auto switch to offline content when connectivity fails to meet streaming needs. Generated playlists of content based on listening preferences and played tracks (hint if I listen longer, I like the music). Simpler switching between Alexa devices, Bluetooth, airplay etc , right now I have to push the disconnect button to get the Apple contextual menu to change BT devices. And lastly, better discoverability of the music I’ve added to my account based on my premium account. It’s difficult to find all the tracks I’ve added to my account in the past 6 months etc. Also some sort of iconography to let me know when an interrupt of audio will happen. When u tap on a station it immediately switches, but when you tap on a playlist you get a contextual menu. This means that whilst DJ’ing with the app, you have to know where the stations are vs the playlists to avoid gaps in music.

Crashes, won’t open
by v22556677 on 2021/12/04 16:49
I’ve used this for years and have always loved it but now the app won’t even open. Crashes seconds after opening. I don’t know who to contact.
wish it was easier to use
by sukkie914 on 2021/12/04 16:37
Adding songs to my favorites or ones that I purchased to a playlist could be more intuitive. I do like the Discovery mix and can see overall that the app is okay, just needs to focus more on simplifying how people can create and manage their playlists easily and enjoyably.
What’s up with the crash?
by KeepinItReal206 on 2021/12/04 16:21
Nice app but after installing the latest version 10.19.1 and the app crashed multiple times when trying to add a song to my playlist. Please fix!

The update made it impossible to rearrange music in a playlist. Moving songs up takes forever. Please add the scroll back so the list auto scrolls when you move a song up or down.

New app update destroys the library
by djadams17 on 2021/12/04 14:55
Instead of opening up your library, you know, the whole reason you have music on your phone, it now opens the artists online page when you open from the library. So you now have to scroll through albums and garbage just to find what you are looking for. Making things way more inconvenient. I don’t get it. They had a well designed app. Trash now
This app just gets worse and worse and worse
by Rumboogy33 on 2021/12/04 09:27
The whole thing is one massive upsell now. You have to jump through multiple hoops to find the music that you selected without accidentally subscribing to the paid service.
Playback Error
by BoujeeBae on 2021/12/04 06:54
This is horrible. Can't play any music on my phone but on my iPad?? Both devices are authorized unlike the error message keeps suggesting talking about some modifications?? My phone isn't jailbroken or anything and all the things customer support suggest DO NOT WORK refreshing, force closing, uninstalling reinstalling, clearing cache-- all useless. This app is unplayable and I'm a unlimited member and can't play any songs on my main device my phone. 😡
Locks up and crashes constantly
by Mmeyere30 on 2021/12/04 05:24
Nearly impossible to use this app for the past several months. Don’t know what happened. I’ve tried device resets, updating and deleting/reinstalling the app. No help. Bad software.
Hope you like making playlists
by Toggery on 2021/12/04 05:10
Recent update seems to have broken a very convenient feature: selecting a song by an artist out of the list and having it just continue to play other songs by that same artist. That was a surprise picking a song and having it just repeat the same song instead of going through the list. Why you’d think you want the default behavior to be repeat one song is beyond me. And I haven’t found a way other than making a playlist to make it cooperate.
Loved Amazon music until
by kevinamazonmusic on 2021/12/04 02:00
Until the most recent update. When you go to your artist in your library it now takes you to the artiest profile instead of your saved/downloaded music like how it did previously. Clearly not very intuitive switching to Apple Music
Can’t use hands free

Since the latest updates I can’t use hands free to talk to Alexa with my van’s Kenwood stereo. This is a feature I truly miss.
it lags every time i try

every time i try to listen to music on amazon, it seems like it takes forever. it's not my wifi, but the app physically lagging.

Not the best music app anymore
by Kai 💕🥰 on 2021/12/03 18:17
I have been using Amazon Music app since I’ve been a freshman in college. ( over four years ago) This app is frustratingly annoying for several of reasons. Sometimes i have to keep switching my shuffle on numerous of times. When the older version of this app i didn’t have to do that. You have to redownload nearly everything quite so often, especially when you do an update for the app. I have not one notion of why i would have to redownload music if it’s already downloaded. I would hate to convert to Apple Music again but it seems like i have no choice at this point. Please do something about the glitches in this app. Sincerely from an Unsatisfied customer !
After the last 5-6 updates I hate this app
by Su Dokai on 2021/12/03 17:50
I’m constantly fighting with this app to play my playlists and not Amazons choices. It actually added Michael Buble’s Christmas songs. I hate his music. I don’t want a car mode. I want one mode that plays the music I select especially since I’m paying monthly to do so. Once again a good product is ruined by all the quirky bad ideas of latecomers. Where’s the throwback button when you need it?

Not like it used to be
by Guy Dangerous 1234 on 2021/12/03 16:54
Previously, before the recent major update, everything was okay. As soon as it updated, the app was VERY glitchy. Sometimes, I try to open the app and it is either a black screen that will not load or just kicks me out back to the Home Screen. It did not used to do this. Plus, every time I launch the app after having closed it for a while, it leaves off on a completely different song than I was listening to before I close the app, sometimes not even on the same playlist or album. One more thing to mention, it is now a pain to navigate, and sometimes songs pause for a couple seconds for no apparent reason. Though it is a great music platform, it has been heavily flawed.
Why are you still playing R.Kelly?
by Qtypie2115 on 2021/12/03 15:12
Yup? I asked you about this before. Then I didn’t listen to the 90s. Now I’ve gotten back into listening to the 90s. It did take 3 months of listening before he popped up and it was one of his lesser known songs. So it was also like if I hadn’t grown up in the 90s maybe I wouldn’t have known it was him. I did grow up in the 90s. I knew it was him and I did dislike it. I’m of the opinion that NO ONE wants to hear his music. NO ONE wants to support this disgusting human. So I ask the question again WHY IS AMAZON MUSIC STILL CHOOSING TO PLAY R.KELLY???? I also just checked and noticed you didn’t put my review up?
Good when it actually works
by A80 CPC on 2021/12/03 13:49
Too many times it stops playing and is “loading.” Every internet search, data application, et cetera works at the same time except Amazon Music. So that tells me it isn’t an Apple or Verizon or WiFi issue, but an Amazon problem.

Can’t listen unless on WiFi
by Chmttn on 2021/12/03 13:06
Since Amazon music added the HD features about a month or so ago I can’t listen to music unless on WiFi it says i have no internet and switches to offline mode while driving I have 5G so no reason for it. It’s pretty frustrating.! So I haven’t really been using it. I have to listen to the radio. When will you fix this.?? We pay for this
PLEASE stop changing the app for no reason!
by HeavyMetalMusicMan on 2021/12/03 12:33
The continuous format changing is out of control. This latest update changed the UI to match Spotify - but I chose Amazon Music because it WASN’T like Spotify. At least give us the option to retain previous settings/layouts each week when you roll out frivolous changes.

Constant crashing, lagging, and stalling. I can’t believe I paid money for this app. It’s the buggiest piece of crap app I’ve ever used. Literally unusable some days.
So…. Many…. Bugs…. Lately
by Jarmiannie on 2021/12/03 03:32
App force closes when I try to download a song or add it to a playlist. Offline mode doesn’t work. Will give it another day, but with so many options, why pay for an inferior product 🤷‍♂️
Bad memory
by JJJJ78643 on 2021/12/03 02:42
I downloaded Amazon music in February because it showed I can get more free songs than I can with Apple music. But not for the past 5 months. It won't play my songs. It always say I haven't downloaded any music. Its always telling me I am in offline mode. I don't want to go online because it uses up to much data. But I should be able to play my songs in off line mode without the app continuously asking me every time if I want to go to online mode when I open the app. No I just want to play the songs with out it buffering or unable to load. I pay a monthly subscription I should not be having these issues.

Constant crashing & freezing
by Moogsworth on 2021/12/02 22:14
I was hopeful that the recent facelift would fix the constant crashing, lagging, freezing, but instead it is only getting worse. It’s impossible to use this without frustration, glad I’m no longer paying for Unlimited as I wouldn’t be able to access my music. Also no feature to report problems with albums that won’t play or won’t play correctly. Ugh.
Love it

Paying Customer
by Nobody from Noplace on 2021/12/02 15:42
As a whole home music experience it is a good value and a great product. Desktop interfacing might be required, but as one who pays for additional connectivity otherwise too, the mobile use of this app is fantastic. Making even the car radio obsolete.
by Josiepozey7 on 2021/12/02 12:32
Whenever I go into Amazon music it always uses my voice even when I don’t use the Alexa. And the refresh and not having every song that annoys me.
Content is great, UI is awful.
by Ejdev on 2021/12/02 03:48
EVERY. SINGLE. UPDATE. The UI gets worse with every update. Artist screen now defaults to the stupid grid view. Great for a computer monitor, stupid on a phone screen. If I select an artist from my library it defaults to “Unlimited” and I have to hit “Library” again to see their songs in my library… I’M ALREADY IN MY LIBRARY!!! IF I WANTED SONGS NOT IN MY LIBRARY I WOULDN’T BE IN MY LIBRARY!!!
Please reduce the + ads

Amazon Prime free music service is good. One complaint is the constant harping to upgrade to Music Plus.
Can’t play song
by gavin koehler on 2021/12/02 02:31
For some reason when ever I try to play righteous by Juice WRLD it skips the song then the song after that then plays the next song even if it’s downloaded or online I still can’t play the song it’s really really confusing and the problem with that is it’s one of my favorite songs play and even if I play on Alexa still will skip this song and then the song after and so on it’s really annoying

I am a music fan and I love all the songs they play but rainbow high are my favorite singers and search doesn’t know what I’m talking about when I search it up so maybe add some more songs including rainbow high but everything else is good. This app is really good but another thing I would advise is to give us notifications when updating because one time it was updating and I had to re-login

If you wanna listen to music, go elsewhere.
by Twickzz on 2021/12/01 20:39
I have never had such bad things to say about an app. DO NOT get amazon music. I can have full bars or be hooked up to wifi and the music will STILL take minutes to load, or NOT LOAD AT ALL. The shuffle function is absolutely obsolete, as it only plays the same 5 shuffle playlists each time. God forbid you want to listen to a specific song, bc it wont automatically shuffle after that! The app is always fritzing out, “starting fresh”, or something… Also, I hope you wnjoy your songs randomly disappearing, or getting switched to a clean version without your knowledge :) youre probably still wondering, why do you have amazon music still? as if its my choice! I have 1,500+ songs in my library that i would have to manually redo on any other music app…. and with that I am switching this week, thats how bad Amazon music is.
why
by safford1977 on 2021/12/01 20:25

APP CRASHES CONSTANTLY!
by Brando_taytay on 2021/12/01 15:37
The stupid app crashes constantly or will just restart itself in the middle of the sun, 5 mins after opening the app for the first time. Plus I pay for UNLIMITED, yet EVERY time a new song in my library comes up, I get this notification that it can’t find the song and should I start fresh? Okay I get every 10th song or something, but this is now every, single, song. Every single song! That’s ridiculous. I mean, That’s a lot. I’m fixing to go back to my regular subscription and REMOVE the unlimited subscription altogether! Ugh fix your crap, Amazon geez!
iOS update
by Murdawg81 on 2021/12/01 15:15
Since the newest iOS update, the app has not worked well at all. Streaming a complete song without buffering several times is a rarity. I use the app daily for hours at a time and am becoming very frustrated. I’ve used the app for years and never had the extent of issues I am now having, trying to listen to music.

Good music, poor functionality
by sturmichka on 2021/12/01 13:48
I have always enjoyed the almost limitless music available on Amazon Music. However, for the last couple of months, the app has been crap. I can’t get it to work in my car or outside of my home network for more than a few minutes without the mysterious “Amazon network error.” Even when I manually switch to offline mode, this happens. I don’t use cell data for the app and have my playlists downloaded to my phone. Anyway, good music, the app is crap.
Just pay the extra $2 for Spotify
by duckstew1234567890 on 2021/12/01 13:29
For a paid premium service from a company the size of Amazon, paying for Spotify will be a better experience all around. You won’t have to uninstall and reinstall the app constantly to correct update glitches. The algorithm for Spotify more “interestingly” compiles music suggestions. And you won’t have to readd music to your library because for whatever reason Amazon launches one version and then removes it from the Amazon library within a few months and uploads a newer version or something along those lines. The Amazon music app also crashes when you add music sometimes. It’s really fun if you find a new song you like. Some of their stations will only play the same 5 songs until you listen to all of them. Overall it’s annoying. It gets 3 stars because I save $$ as a Prime Member.
Needs improvement
by Zpm679087665 on 2021/12/01 12:51
Normally, I love this app. Access to a ton of music, great stations to stream, easy usage. But recently I’ve gotten incredibly frustrated using this app. Songs that I have downloaded to my phone sometimes have to load, sometimes for a full minute before it finally plays. What was the point of downloading the song if I have to wait for it to load regardless. Additionally I like to make my own playlists. I’m not sure how the shuffle algorithm works but lately when I hit shuffle the app only plays songs near the original song I selected. I genuinely enjoy the app, but it’s frustrating that an app I pay 10.99 monthly for doesn’t work like it should.
Search Bar
by No Season ONE! on 2021/12/01 04:10
I have been struggling to find the specific song in my playlist. It would be really nice to have a search bar in the playlist.. could you possibly put that in next update? It would be greatly appreciated! Other than that I love using this app for my music.
Newest update is horrible
by kickpuncher92 on 2021/12/01 04:07
The november update completely ruined the app…the UI makes no sense and you have to click about 15 buttons to find music in your own library
Updates are setting the app backwards
by Devinms94 on 2021/12/01 03:53
Amazon music has been my primary music app for the longest but lately many of the updates are causing the app to become unstable and super temperamental. From the shuffle button not working as intended to causing the app to crash, adding songs to my music caused the app to crash as well, and sometimes my playlists will just disappear for days and then just randomly reappear. I’ve never had these problems before October and I’ve done everything from deleting the app to deleting the cache and contacting support but it seems like it’s an issue Amazon needs to fix on their end. But all in all the app is good but the update’s lately are setting it back rather than forward.
The newest version is terrible.
by v0lcom13snow on 2021/12/01 03:05

Skips mid track, changes speed and is a disappointment since update
by Create the future on 2021/12/01 00:23
I tried to contact support, except I was only taken to a page or forums. This is awful because I pay for a premium subscription. So.... hopefully amazon reads reviews. Since updating the app, about every third song plays for 15 seconds, then skips to the next track. Doesn’t matter the artist or playlist. additionally, the player speeds up and slows down the tempo of the songs randomly and distorts sound. This has been happening since the update. Please fix.
Shuffle is Broken or something
by i have an iphone 4 on 2021/12/01 00:04
Ok so every time I shuffle one of my two playlists (each having close or over 300 songs), I always hear the same ten songs at first. And I mean ALWAYS. I wasn’t going to write a review for it, but like, it just keeps happening so there’s no way it’s just by chance. Like I’ve got 290 other songs, you don’t have to play these ten every time, y’know? The app is good besides that, but I would love it if we could share our playlists like Spotify does. I really like the playlists that Amazon makes, but there’s just not enough of them.
Ui Changes
by Syhnyster on 2021/11/30 23:41
This is my first review. Change the UI back to what it used to be. The updated UI is terrible. I like to be able to see all songs I have by an artist. Not have to select the album first.

App makes me not use it
by JCusta on 2021/11/30 19:21
Not that I have an issue with content, which is fine as a perk of having Amazon Prime. Issue is that the content will be stuck on buffering and won’t play only to land on Playback Issues screen. Restarting the app doesn’t work. Restarting the phone doesn’t work most of the time. It’s frustrating to use. One podcast episode will work fine….then the next will have the same issue. It’s not my internet as I’ve verified it’s fine by using Spotify and other apps and web. I’m using iPhone 13 pro and it happens on 5G or Wi-Fi. No issues with other apps at all. Another reason why I would never pay for unlimited

Streams music you have downloaded
by er1234123 on 2021/11/30 14:36
If you download songs in your play list to save data, it still streams them unless you go into offline mode. It also uses data excessively. At standard quality it’s using more than 1 GB an hour streaming music, no video. That’s a crazy amount of data for streaming music.
This new update is annoying
by Mooshbutt48291736372)3 on 2021/11/30 00:00
Please fix the shuffle feature. I was annoyed enough when shuffle wouldn’t work automatically and it would only shuffle songs after the one you picked, but now shuffle doesn’t even do anything when you choose a song and it just repeats the same song. I love Amazon music because they have Dolby atmos Taylor swift but it’s no fun if I can’t choose which song I want to start the shuffle :(
TOO MANY ISSUES WITH APP
by Laffy4455 on 2021/11/29 23:15
The price and music selection are great but if I can’t even play it with out the app crashing every 15 seconds it’s almost not worth it. Playing it at home on an echo device or the tv works great, but when I try to hook my phone up to my vehicle or another device it’s like pulling teeth to get this thing to work. It crashes for any little thing you do. Don’t even think about playing offline because that is just impossible. It’s not like I am using some old outdated device or vehicle. I have an iPhone 12 and a 2018 vehicle. All the devices I use are less than 5 years old that I hook up to as well. The app needs to be fixed. There are way too many quirks. If it were not for the other devices I can listen to music on and the family price then I would go back to iTunes music.
Amazon music keeps quitting
by MS💃 on 2021/11/29 22:48

Latest updates have broken a lot.
by Brownings on 2021/11/29 22:04
The last few updates have messed up a lot of the app's functionality. Stations will stop playing after 3 or 4 songs. The worst part is the push for online content. Even though you've downloaded an artists albums, when you go into the artist page, it'll take you into the Unlimited version instead of just what's in your Library. You can click the Library button, but this won't stay on, so if you back out and go back in again, you're no longer in your Library, instead you're back on the online Unlimited page. Even in your Library functionality is gone. The old app had a list of all your Library songs. You could click one at the top and it would just keep going down through all the atist's albums and songs till it hit the end. It now just lists 3 songs. Click on any of those and it'll play the single song then stop. The devs need to seriously roll back some of these terrible improvements.
Downloaded music filter broken
by George98796(44 on 2021/11/29 21:46
Something happened where my downloaded music is not visible in my library by filter, though appears to still be downloaded. For example on albums where I downloaded certain songs I cannot just see and play those downloaded songs by album any longer.

UNLIMITED!!
by unicorn love and puppy on 2021/11/29 20:03
I have had this app for years and as a family no one likes this unlimited idea. The app in general phenomenal but… I get you use unlimited to make money but as like the BIGGEST company in the US I think unlimited is a little to far. Just so you know how much I like this app I really do truest love it. ❤️ I understand that this is for money and money equals things and things equals wealth but still can’t we think about all those people who buy 100s of 1000 of dollars worth on Amazon to find THIS! But in general great app. Nice work.

Great music selections

Love being able to have it automatically shuffle on certain channels. The mixes are incredible and the sound is even better, thank you Amazon.
Way better

Rap music

Why can’t I listen to Tupac without every word being censored, even when I’m listening to the explicit version? It’s ridiculous.
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!!
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.

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.
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.
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.
Keep listening feedback is annoying
by HillaryLaweeze on 2020/05/19 15:37
I hate many things about this app, but the feature most bothersome to me of late is the keep listening feature. The sleep timer is turned off, but every hour I get asked am I still listening to music. Did I stop the music?! I have my device plugged in across the room because it’s not compatible with Legrand digital audio (fix this too!). So, every hour when the music stops I have to go press keep listening. I’m not opposed to exercise, but I’m trying to work, and this incessant disruption makes me want to pay for a different streaming music service. This should only happen if I engaged the sleep timer. This is a useless feature, especially if I am actually streaming on WiFi and have the stream only on WiFi feature engaged or am in offline mode listening to downloaded music. Get rid of this. Another huge annoyance is the amount of data this app uses even in data saver mode. My daily commute (160 minutes total streaming time) uses 1 GB of data! Maybe it would use less data if the lyrics feature could be disabled. Finally your app support was useless for providing feedback, so hopefully someone is reading these reviews.
Good but can be better
by Colbat King on 2020/04/07 23:38
Good app but has a few annoying problems. They allow you to view most of your favorite music but the problem is, the unlimited music thing. You have to pay a small amount of money for hundreds of good songs. Mostly any good song is in the unlimited music part. It’s really annoying. Anyway you pay a small amount but over time it becomes a lot of money. It’s really bothering wand I wish they would stop the unlimited music thingy. But even if they wanted to keep it maybe take off a chunk of songs so we can have good music.( Developers this might get you more customers!) but in truth is an okay app. I would say go ahead but be warned a lot of songs are restricted so it’s quite annoying. Me and my friends have been really bothered and have started to go to other apps. I can’t though because I have an awesome dad who is watching out for me and let’s me use this app but I’m starting to get to the point where I’d rather have no music than this app. It’s getting on my nerves. People! Be WARNED!!! It could bug you Badly. But it’s a good app and if you want go ahead. I just can’t express how annoying this can be.
Possibly the most frustrating music app
by Floody85 on 2019/06/06 01:50
I am currently subscribed to the unlimited and will be done with it for good after June is over. Short version; of you have prime then it’s included, great. Otherwise save your money. I like to listen to stations as it gives me a better variety; first off the variety of similar artists was soo off pace for the first few days I was pressing thumbs down more than I was anything else. These were stations I created and couldn’t believe there were algorithms out there saying they were similar artists, furthermore it would continually throw the same artists I thumbed down MULTIPLE Times in there with different songs that weren’t any better. Secondly and possibly even more frustrating is that when I paused a song and then would go to press play on that song 5-10 minutes later I would just get the “loading song” description and that’s it. I would then need to skip or push to the next song ,then press play again in order for it to start playing music. Lastly if I searched an artist and then created a station off of that artist I would notice that if paused that station and then resumed within 5-10 minutes it wouldn’t resume on the station it would resume on most previously searched artist.. free pandora is a better choice than the current state
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Improve shuffle!
by kelsarro on 2019/11/24 21:16
Overall the app is decent. I have been able to discover a lot of new artists and songs that I enjoy from the artist radios and suggestions. Here are my cons: Artist radios.. I have avoided thumbs-upping any songs that I like. I have found that when I do, it will play those songs that I thumbs-upped first every single time I play that particular radio. I guess that’s the point but I end up hating the song because it becomes way overplayed. Which is kind of how Pandora’s radio is. It’s just annoying. So don’t thumbs up anything unless you want to eventually hate it. Shuffle on My Music.. needs some improvement. It seems like the algorithm needs work or something because it will shuffle and play THE SAME SONGS and then there are songs that I will never ever hear. I end up removing songs from My Music just because the shuffle seems to love playing it. I end up letting it play alphabetically just so I can hear my other songs. That’s terrible! Also, I have noticed that the shuffle will turn off by itself if I am connecting Bluetooth. That might be unavoidable but I thought I would mention that.
New Update RUINED IT!!
by AlicksterJ on 2019/09/03 05:26
This is a great app! I can’t deny that it is extremely useful and easy to use— and is ideal for anyone who likes to listen to music on the go— however, after updating to the most recent version of the app, I have found that after a mandatory refresh, all my music was GONE! I had downloaded well over 3,000 songs (as an Unlimited subscriber) and was very disappointed to find all that gone. Not only that, but every thirty seconds the app crashes and restarts— making it to where it would be virtually impossible to re-download all those missing songs unless I had god-speed wifi, which, I regret to inform you, I do not have. I hope this is not the case through every device using the app, but it is the case for me and it is very disheartening, as I do not have data on my device and cannot access wifi 24/7 to where I could simply use it without downloads. All I ask is that the crashing gets resolved. Restarting my device did not help, either, so I believe it is the app itself. But also, please do not remove all of one’s offline music in the next update please. 🙏
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.
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😤😡
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
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.
Having issues PLEASE FIX ASAP
by Muttdog56 on 2021/07/30 05:31
Love the app but I’ve found where the issue lies. When I go to download my playlist I hit the download button the it says it’s downloading but it isn’t but right after I hit the download button I’ll go to play a song and it will not bring up the song being played then it will freeze the whole app so then I close it out and the music still plays even after I close the app it’ll play for at least an extra 15 seconds please fix this because I have to download my music as my service is terrible where I live and don’t have WiFi all the time. Thank you so much! Also now when I hit my playlist it takes 30 seconds to even load the playlist before it goes in then I play music and try to immediately skip the song and it just craps out. I just updated the app today July 29, 2021 and I’m still having major issues. Just fix the issues the people are telling 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.
Like it
by Roamingricky on 2019/04/01 14:36
So far it’s working out well, I do like the Alexa feature, but it doesn’t work when my iPad isn't active so you still have to push buttons. LOL. So far I’ve been able to find all the music I have been looking for, time will tell, can’t give them five stars because there’s always room for improvement in the structure of the app. For example if you go to play Lady Gaga, it will only play the same four songs over and over until you actually go and open it up and make them play the full playlist, that seems like a waste of time, who would ask to play Lady Gaga and only want the same four songs? Should just give u the full list right off. Some of the other controls and features take a while to hunt and peck to find as well, some work on the user-friendly interface wouldn’t hurt. Overall for the music that I listen to, I don’t find the monthly subscription fee overly excessive. I will continue to enjoy your product. Thank you
It’s 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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
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
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.
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!
Music quality A++ but a few fixes would make it 5 stars
by ACGoris on 2020/03/05 16:18
The good: pretty broad selection, lots of ultra-HD, and the sound is great. The medium: some of the ultra-HD of old classic rock has been remixed. In some cases this is good when some bass has been added back in that wasn’t possible in the original due to the dynamic range limitations of vinyl. In some cases the bass is a little over done, but still probably a little better than the original. In other mixes, it just doesn’t sound quite right, since the original art was the product of the musicians and the mixers at the time. When this happens, the feel is similar to watching a colorized veesion of a classic black-and-white film. Needs work: The user interface is clunky; search often misses songs you’re looking for,so you have to try different ways of getting to what you want, and when listening in the car, the iPhone app hangs when you lose service and often doesn’t resume playing once you have service again.
Problems keep it from being great
by small hobbit on 2019/12/09 15:55
I like to download music; this is because I’m not always on wi-fi, and still use an iPod Touch. The problem is there doesn’t seem to be a clear way to delete downloaded songs from the device. This causes bloat as songs that I no longer want downloaded are seemingly stuck. Another issue I have, that honestly isn’t as major, is that if I try to update a downloaded playlist instead of overwriting the existing downloaded version it makes a new numerical numbered playlist (so it creates a “playlist 1” instead of overwriting the playlist there) Not as big of an issue since playlists can easily be deleted, it’s just annoying. I’m also strangely getting different suggestions in the web version than I am in the app; I do like both kinds, I just can’t figure out why these are different and why I can’t get the suggestions I’m getting on the website in the app. This is because the ONLY suggestions I’ve been getting in app are alternative, which is okay, but is far from the only bands I listen to.
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”.
It’s Great, But....
by Phillybobjr on 2020/02/25 04:32
I love the app and I’m so happy to finally have an app to get all my music, my only complaint is that they don’t have every song I want. Like some of my songs I understand why they don’t have, they’re not from a super famous artists, but then there’s others. One example is the song Tonight (I’m Loving You) by Enrique Iglesias, I cant find it, and I do understand it’s not the original version of what I understand but I don’t get why it’s not there. Like with Enrique there’s some other artist that the one song I wanted from them isn’t there (ex. Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, by Set it off). And the worst of it isn’t that the song just isn’t their. It’s that there’s always some weird parody of the song that doesn’t sound good, this is my one complaint, so if they’re could be a way to possibly request songs to add to the carts library of music it would be perfect.
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.

Love it, but app has some quirks
by VT_Freshy on 2020/02/05 14:32
This is really a 4.5 star rating, but rounding. I’ve been a Prime member for about 15 years now and have had the Music app for about 3 with Unlimited. Love the service, but the app has been significantly slower recently when accessing music, beginning mid to late 2019. Another issue with the app is that your offline and online playlists don’t sync. If you make one offline, it should copy the list to online when you connect, so that you can play it through your Echo devices - by it doesn’t. Same goes for making one online, it is not accessible when I’m offline mode, regardless of whether individual songs are downloaded. Would love to see this simple improvement made, as well as a return to more responsive operation such as not taking 30 seconds in some cases to start a song that is on the device.
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.
Area To Improve
by Butuandan on 2019/09/01 03:22
Offline playlist setup not as user friendly. Please improve your service because internet connection is sometimes unreliable. Also, it would help a lot when I am on airplane mode. Thanks. You need to add better dialogue with your user when he accesses different pages. I am left guessing because many of the subsequent steps are hidden. Keep testing your system and analyze the clicks of your new users and trace the ways by which you could make your app friendlier. Please. September 1, 2019: I noticed improvements. Thanks. Invite communities of testers. From teenagers to parents to seniors, let them navigate your dialogues when selecting songs to downloading them while on offline mode. You need to learn from their mistakes thus allowing you to design your improvements where it is needed. More needs to be done. You are not there yet. Good luck.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
Frustrating
by TheRealCombat on 2019/10/01 15:37
As long as you are in a good service area it’s fine. However, the second it has a network connection issue it just gives up and stops playing music. Even if the song is already fully buffered! This is really annoying when driving through rural areas. It will randomly quit playing and pop up a modal window saying there was a network connection issue and to retry again later with a stronger connection. It does this when I have service and I can even watch the buffer continue to load in the background. Pressing play does not resume playing at this point, instead you have to skip the song to get it going again. When I’m working on a project in my shop I’m at the limit of my home WiFi. My phone will bounce around between LTE and WiFi. It seems to cause this app to just randomly stop playing. It doesn’t display a message saying why, it just stops playing. It’s always right after I get my hands dirty and don’t want to touch my phone. I mean, come on... 😕
Still a few basic features missing.
by Hawks fan #4517 on 2018/12/25 03:51
Playlists that auto switch to offline content when connectivity fails to meet streaming needs. Generated playlists of content based on listening preferences and played tracks (hint if I listen longer, I like the music). Simpler switching between Alexa devices, Bluetooth, airplay etc , right now I have to push the disconnect button to get the Apple contextual menu to change BT devices. And lastly, better discoverability of the music I’ve added to my account based on my premium account. It’s difficult to find all the tracks I’ve added to my account in the past 6 months etc. Also some sort of iconography to let me know when an interrupt of audio will happen. When u tap on a station it immediately switches, but when you tap on a playlist you get a contextual menu. This means that whilst DJ’ing with the app, you have to know where the stations are vs the playlists to avoid gaps in music.
