Soothing

During this horrible blackout and cold plus lockdown, this has been a blessing.
Crashes every time I use it
by vbbgggdfhjbgted on 2021/02/23 22:44
I use this app almost exclusively, namely because of the navigation and available content. However, upon starting the app, it will crash within 2 minutes guaranteed. I just restart it and it works fine, but I literally have to do this every time I use it. I guess it’s just become a known nuisance at this point but I would love for it to be fixed.
WTH happened in the past month?
by TPABrahma on 2021/02/23 22:36
Constantly halts when I open other apps that have no sound. Constantly warbles on 5G, is just a plain failure where for years it NEVER was. It’s nothing but a pain now. HELP!!!
Great App
by Merrilman on 2021/02/23 22:18
Great App! Just a bit slow at times but it is the best mudic I have used so far 👌🏾
Amazon music
by oiymynoives on 2021/02/23 21:22
Been having lots of issues this week. Songs stop playing can’t get them to start shows a different song on the display than what is playing. I bought my 2019 car because it has Apple Car Play. But, it doesn’t always play ;( And don’t drive under any bridges!!

I really enjoy all of my music!!! Thank You.
Quite good - but needs more super HD recordings
by Beatleboy's uncle on 2021/02/23 20:15
Let’s be honest, folks: what you call HD isn’t HD to the rest of the industry - it’s simply CD quality. Granted, it’s infinitely superior to MP3s, but it’s not HD.
Keeps on crashing
by Snakebite97 on 2021/02/23 19:35
Every time I use the app, half way through the first song the app crashes then after that it works fine.
Music Stops using Nike Running App
by Mike Nuño on 2021/02/23 19:11
When In use Nike Running App and there is an announcement of miles advanced, music stops and need to play it again (when Im running, is awful).
Getting better
by Joseph Lombarde on 2021/02/23 18:22
Every once in a while it stops playing and just shows loading forever. Weird though it always seems to load at a number 9 in the song timing. Example 1:09. 1:19. 1:59. Always a 9 on the end
Music app
by F.Mel on 2021/02/23 18:04
Couple tricky bits—like how to find your music if it disappears (hint sign out and sign back in)—but really enjoying it for the most part. There’s a good selection but I hope it continues to grow. Building playlist 🙌🏼, finding artist or podcast🙌🏼, reviewing music you’ve played🙌🏼, downloading songs👏🏻
no stars.
by babajdbdjsnhshsjwbsha on 2021/02/23 17:47
Amazon music used to be so good and I used to be able to let my music play forever and now after 30 seconds it stops. It is so frustrating. and then you have to reload into the app and it is so annoying. and then some of your music doesn’t even play it says it’s loading or makes these static sounds. I want Amazon music to go back to the way it was without so many bug problems. I am switching to Apple Music because it actually works.
Great awesome.
by vollmer48 on 2021/02/23 17:21

Still doesn’t work
by Invalidgamename on 2021/02/23 16:00
3 updates later and still can’t even make it through one song before the app quits itself smh
Unlimited nagware
by sbmlusa on 2021/02/23 15:42
The relentless frequency of Unlimited advertising modal screen forces user to dismiss it before they could use the app is the main reason Im giving this app a one star rating. I have zero interest in Unlimited, and as a Prime member, and I have to put up with this aggressive tactic from Amazon music forcing advertising down their paying customers throat. Amazon basically says, “we dont care about our user experience, lets aggravate them and put their headspace in such a negative experience so that they are forced to upgrade every time they open app. If they dont want to deal with nagware, pay $10/month. They need us, we dont need them! Pay up ransom fee before you can listen to music that you already paid for! We want profit, this is what matters to us. You want a superior user experience? Go use Apple Music or Tidal. Amazon music is the kmart of music services, and you will put up with a crappy user experience because we are affordable. There is no free lunch. You only pay 100/year for prime. We want $120/year on top of your 100/year prime membership! Pay up and we will remove our modal dialog blocking your interactions with our app!” Amazon music is exactly what they are: poor user experience and affordable.
Bad Service
by DarkeyedJunko on 2021/02/23 15:29
Music constantly becomes unavailable after adding to playlists.
Amazon Music Unlimited subscriber here
by QuadricepDrive on 2021/02/23 14:45
The FLAC audio files sound absolutely awesome! Well worth the price of admission if you have above average audio equipment to play music through. On some songs, there is detail in the music I never heard before. Amazon has a great feature to build your music library by suggesting similar artists to the one you’re currently creating a playlist out of. My only gripe is that the app does not fully integrate over to HEOS. (Custom playlists and stations don’t appear in HEOS). I can airplay them over from my iPhone, since the files are converted to PCM, both PCM and FLAC files are lossless; but would like to play the music without my iPhone. Current set up, Denon X4500H, 2 GoldenEar Triton Two+, 1 GoldenEar SuperCenter XL, 4 GoldenEar SuperSat 3, 2 GoldenEar ForceField 2. Feedback for Amazon, please allow for a static section where I can find the stations I created just like you have for the playlists I created. By the way, Pandora does a better job with their stations. I find that I’m skipping more tracks on Amazon stations, therefore I’m having to build more playlists for my variety of music tastes. Fix this and you get 5 stars. The HEOS issue belongs to Denon I believe, their customer service is practically non existent, so I don’t think there is a fix anytime soon.
Love it

A review
by CanDo4U on 2021/02/23 14:31
Amazon unlimited is the best! Who would have thought uninterrupted music is a necessity for an even flow of listening! Thank you,🥳
Why r all the nick names taken!!!!
by ahhhhhhhhhhhhy on 2021/02/23 13:43
Hi so I really like it. I wish that all music could be played through your phone and not Alexa devices. I also wish you didn’t have to have Amazon unlimited to listen to all music. I am glad that drivers license doesn’t need unlimited though! Ok bye!!!
Having trouble recently
by Jspoffhaywood on 2021/02/23 12:45
Since the latest update my playlist is very glitchy. It cuts off in the middle of songs and when I open the app it is on a weird “preferences” screen that doesn’t let me access my playlist. I have to X out of it and then scroll through the list to open it. When I do, none of the songs will play. I just deleted and reinstalled the app and I am hoping this resolves the problem, but not being able to listen to my playlist the usual way is very annoying (especially when I am driving!)
Bring back genre sorting
by Genre2021 on 2021/02/23 12:37
I enjoy the app and music choices. But greatly miss the genre sorting option. I could choose Christian or Country and enjoy only those songs in my library. Please bring genre sorting back.
Pretty good. Can do better!
by Padwalshubham on 2021/02/23 09:34
Better than Spotify or Apple Music in music discovery! UI needs serious upgrade. Music library can be larger.
Dropped songs
by les5280 on 2021/02/23 08:21
Many songs from my favorite groups are no longer available.
Best Music App!!

Love it!!
Glitches Like CRAZY
by ChickenNuggetsPlease on 2021/02/23 02:28
Omg 90% of the songs are glitching!! Sooo annoying!
Kept crashing
by had_to_switch on 2021/02/23 02:19
Worked great for the first year or so. The past month it kept crashing or the songs would go out of frequency and skip. Switched to a better and cheaper service, same maker as my phone (usually not allowed to name other products).
App
by thisisarealpersonx24 on 2021/02/23 02:10
App fails all the time in the middle of a song. Siri pop ups come up all the time trying to get permissions. Another reason to Amazon is unreliable.
Fabulous app
by Linedman on 2021/02/23 02:07
Love the music selection. Play it every day. Love it. Great choices. All the music I need!!
Continually crashes
by Billy_H. on 2021/02/23 01:39
App continually crashes about 2-3 minutes after opening it. I have the masters version of the app, the latest iOS update, WiFi or cell signal doesn’t matter...crash. Cmon Amazon, fix this crap!
Frequent errors, freezes, and car mode
by Bentley_J on 2021/02/23 00:11
If I was listening to a station, close the app, and then open the app and tapped on that station in my recently listened to music, it throws an error every single time. Literally every. Single. Time. I have uninstalled the app, I have signed in and signed out, I can’t get it to ever do that. It is really annoying to open the Music app and want to resume the same station I was previously listening to you without being able to do so. Please fix this error. Many times when the music app is still in my phones cache, when I try to listen to music in the car it just swirls on the play button, but no music ever starts playing. It does this on five bars of LTE. It is not the service. I have to force close the app, re-open it, Now when I get in my vehicle driving mode pops up in the app. Is there really no way to disable this? I have searched through all of the help functions and I do not find a way to disable this. It is actually more distracting than just letting me use the app like normal when I get into the car.
Music glitches
by daileyjam on 2021/02/22 23:38
It will play some songs and then others will glitch in the middle of it and make an awful noise that sounds like it’s not from this Earth.
I would really like to like
by Mobilken on 2021/02/22 23:36
First I really only use it connecting to my Alexas that are throughout the house. However it will only play 5/8 songs at a time and most recently Alexa says it can’t find my music library unless I de register and go through the set up process

Could not live without
Glitchy as all get out
by B11802 on 2021/02/22 22:10
Sadly, I am deleting this app because it is so glitchy. Every song I play on here is nothing but a digital warbling glitch. Definitely a bummer because it has all the songs in the world and would be an amazing app if only it properly functioned.
Awful
by Easy Does It 12003 on 2021/02/22 21:45
Music keeps cutting out
Little bit of a problem
by JemmaH08 on 2021/02/22 21:26
This app has the potential to be amazing but every time I try to listen to a song it will either be stuck loading forever or only play for half the song and stop like I never opened the app. -Little bit of a problem
Crashes all the time; will never beat Spotify
by nolmil on 2021/02/22 21:00
Amazon has tried to compete with Spotify and Apple Music, but will never match other music streaming platforms, for several reasons: 1. The interface is klutzy. Amazon has tried to revamp it several times, but it will always be a Spotify-want-to-be, and it does not come close to matching the simplicity of Spotify. 2. It crashes—at random times, all the time. Both the iOS and Mac OS versions randomly crash and freeze. If it happened one or twice, it would be forgivable, but it happens regularly and has been a problem a long time—Amazon has yet to fix it. 3. It is not as user-friendly as Spotify and does not let you explore new music and genres in the way Spotify does. It has tried to implement public playlists and generated custom playlists, but it is far behind Spotify’s algorithms. 4. If you have a family plan, you have to create separate Amazon accounts for each family member. That’s right: your 8-year-old needs his own Amazon account (linked to a credit card) to listen to his own music. If you view Amazon Music as an extension of your prime account, you can continue to tolerate it, but if you’re paying for the unlimited version, invest the same money in Spotify instead—it costs the same and is significantly better in every way.
Music can freak out sometimes
by Cushman25778 on 2021/02/22 19:18
Sometimes the music will start playing but it’ll run too fast or won’t play a song at all
Needs more free songs
by Archynan on 2021/02/22 19:13
I would like to see less songs being moved to the plus membership. Other than that, great music application. Songs are too often taken away after being free for a time.
Amazon premium music
by Sfsegderdd on 2021/02/22 19:08
There are too many repeats. Far too many repeats. It’s annoying and frustrating. I’m only doing it because of the 90 day trial. I would not pay $10.99 for the service.
Stays stuck on song
by mfloresexy on 2021/02/22 19:05
Everything is perfect although some songs stay stuck playing over and over again
Something has gone awry
by chicago architect on 2021/02/22 18:52
Something is up with latest version. Keeps crashing and songs get stuff in infinite loading...much as others have described. Please fix. I’ve come to really enjoy and rely on this app!
Would like to give more stars but....
by olgkei on 2021/02/22 18:50
I can not enjoy listening to music because the app is always closing out. I’ve updated the app every time it is required and the app still closes out. Extremely annoying, I do not know why but I just stopped using it.
Over it
by big122345!!?$$ on 2021/02/22 18:30
The longer I have this app the more irritated I get with it. At first I thought something was wrong with my speakers I have because it would randomly make this horrible scratch and skip sound but I discovered it’s the app. Then listening to certain songs they will randomly start playing a different song then go back to the song I originally picked.

Constant Issues 0 stars
by Brad Cox on 2021/02/22 16:52
This is the worst app I have on my phone/iPad. Constantly has issues, music stops playing, constantly does what looks like a reset. I start a song and the songs stops, go to look and it has completely lost what it was doing. Tried numerous times to delete and re-download the app and reset the app but the issues continue on and on, and on. Worst app I have ever used. 0 stars if I could.
Reduced services
by toledome on 2021/02/22 16:48
Amazon keeps reducing the services that used to be free in an effort to force you into subscription. Used to be able to upload songs you already owned...not anymore. Ok, so have to purchase new “digital” versions. No biggie. But then when you can’t make playlists of songs you have already purchased on Amazon? That requires a reduction in stars.
Okay app
by jwsseriously on 2021/02/22 14:22
App just closes on its own while listening to songs. Could add more songs to the stations. Same songs over and over, etc..,
Solamente unas cuantas perdidas

Just what I need, when I need it...
by JDO1952 on 2021/02/22 12:27
Amazon music is exactly what I need when I need it. It’s simple enough for even me to make a playlist and add to it, I get my music and lyrics when I want them, great job to the staff that has made this happen... John D Ohman Time has come and gone, and the quality of Amazon music is still Platinum performance, you have listened to customer, followed work instructions, and adhered to a successful control plan great job, review what each of you do often and do not let this great work slip John D Ohman 2-22-2021
Could be better
by Jr_93xp on 2021/02/22 11:43
Some things that I have gotten use to with other music streams just aren’t there but over all very good and user friendly.
Quality
by Africalisa on 2021/02/22 09:28
I love being able to listen whenever and wherever I happen to be but lately the sound quality has taken a bad turn. I don’t know if it is my connection/data that is affecting it but at least 2-3 times each hour a song will abruptly break off into a weird static either for the entire song or part of a song and then when sound comes back it switches to a different song.
App crashes with “first use”
by angry F3 on 2021/02/22 06:07
When the app starts it plays for about 30 seconds and then crashes. I need to reopen the app, and then it works fine. Also, Why can’t I like a song unless it’s on a station?
New interface is not consistent
by scoobsdo on 2021/02/22 03:19
Really would like to swipe down on album pic to get back to playlist on consistent basic.
Bad Quality
by haveagreatdayguyslmao on 2021/02/22 02:59
I really don’t know what is going on. I always hear the same freaking “alien” sounds every time I try to play a song. In the beginning everything was fine but now it doesn’t even let me get through a song without it acting up. I’m about to cancel my suscription. I really don’t want to though🥺 I hope it fixes itself
Awesome
by energy 2point o on 2021/02/22 02:42
This is the best app ever if you want music and it is easy to set up but it is a little expensive and I wish it would play without stopping while someone else is playing there music without paying more money for it.But it is a really good app overall.

Have to pay for good stuff
by BooYahoo1947562 on 2021/02/22 00:14
They changed and now it seems so much music is only available through Unlimited. I already pay Amazon so much money for my accounts and kindle and stuff for kids. It’s like - give me some decent music.
Decent App, needs improvement
by harbulary batteries on 2021/02/21 23:49
This app allows unlimited streaming of virtually anything to anyone with an Amazon Prime account. Unfortunately, Amazon has skimped on programming with this app. It constantly crashes and entire songs and/or playlists come through scratchy and unbearable. Hopefully Amazon puts some more development into this app.
“Now playing” visual disappears since update
by TherapyWicki on 2021/02/21 23:34
Greeting! Love the app - using for years!! Found a bug in most recent update 2/20/2021. Noticing if I “shuffle all songs” & starts playing, I cannot view the “up next/prior” playlist on the bottom LH corner. When I touch it, it freezes, then crashes the app. Please address for the next update. Thanks!
iTunes is better
by tacmor20 on 2021/02/21 22:46
I purchased vinyl albums and unable to download digital version for external playlists. Also difficult to navigate backwards from the song in the app.
App won’t work unless wired

Improvements to be made
by OKCThunderDome on 2021/02/21 22:25
please bring back genres! I’ve seen sooo many people complain about this. i just want to be able to play a certain genre without having to create a whole new playlist for that genre.

Critical app issue
by kciphone94 on 2021/02/21 18:16
This app used to work perfectly but after a recent update, the app will force close after about two minutes. In addition, many songs have been slow to load (not that you can listen to them anyway). If you haven't updated yet, I recommend waiting until the issues are fixed.
Keeps crashing
by Mitten State Firefighter on 2021/02/21 18:10
I’ve been using Amazon music since 2008 and never had a problem before. Now since I update my iPhone 12 to iOS 14.4, Amazon music crashes after attempting to play a song. I’ve heard that Amazon music recognizes the newest iOS update as a jail break, but there has to be something out there to fix it. Why should I keep spending money on songs and music I can’t listen to on my phone?
Playback error
by Hetujcdt on 2021/02/21 18:05
A lot of the music I have says playback error. What’s going on??!?
Love the music!

Enjoyment and remembering with music
by Dee Jhay on 2021/02/21 17:50
Wow I’m so happy to have ears to hear all those beautiful music. I am very pleased with the service. So many ways to entertain your family and friends. Especially when you are wherever you go. I shared this with my friends and coworkers as well. They are amazed by the variety of music. Hard to ignore. Thanks Amazon. I’m still enjoying.
Great Service, Terrible App
by SebastiãoofEC on 2021/02/21 17:17
I love all the music and options on here, but the app constantly crashes and logs me out all the time. It’s very unreliable and the menus and navigation don’t always work, either. It’s also worth noting that getting Amazon Music isn’t really worth it if you don’t have the Unlimited subscription. Overall okay but needs a lot of work.
Family Plan Issues
by Jsalas85 on 2021/02/21 17:06
I was getting frustrated that my music kept stopping. Thought it was because it was getting interrupted when it played on another device. Tried to upgrade my plan to Family Plan. I can’t find the option and neither Apple or Amazon seem to be able to help me!!

Consistently Crashing
by GhoSStrider on 2021/02/21 13:45
Not sure what’s going on with recent updates but the app is essentially unusable now. I can listen to one and occasionally two songs before it crashes. If this isn’t fixed soon, I’m going to consider switching my Amazon HD subscription to another service.
Scramble noise on many of the songs
by Reanee R on 2021/02/21 13:34
Many of the songs I add will play fine at first but then a terrible scrambling noise cuts in. Other songs also break in momentarily and some songs skip. It is TERRIBLE! I subscribed to the free trial of Unlimited & it was the same issue. I no longer even want to listen to the free music included in my Prime membership, much less PAY for Unlimited.
Crashes continuously
by bigreen505 on 2021/02/21 06:05
I really want to like this app. I subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited because I think overall it is the best streaming music service. However the app crashes constantly and it doesn’t work well with CarPlay. These problems are becoming deal breakers for me. I’ve deleted and re-downloaded the app and that didn’t help. I’m using an iPhone 11 Pro with the most recent iOS, so I don’t think the device is the problem. The issues are the same over WiFi or cellular.
Doesn’t play the song I chose

by Ottis Thomas on 2021/02/21 05:36
I’ve been a Prime member for 6+ years & every year the service & deals get worse & worse. I’ve reported several issues with the music app over the years & NOTHING! I’m still experiencing the same issues I had in 2017!!!! The comedy station have been updated in over 4 years! It just plays the same 4-5 comedians & I’m unable to reset my preferences. Also, apparently being a prime member doesn’t mean anything anymore. You like a song that you put in your playlist? Too bad, it’s no longer available to you because it became popular & now Amazon decided you have to upgrade to unlimited to hear it.
Knows my preference

Love recommendations. App very easy to manage. If I pick an artist it recommends more songs from the same artist versus similar songs from unknown artist.
Life changing!!!

A great and inexpensive way to listen to music, thank you
Good Ap

While I like Amazon Music and that I can access my library on any device (desktop, laptop, iPhone, iPad Air, Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tablet), it periodically displays the wrong album art. I use Tag Scanner to try and fix the file(s) and re-upload them. That works most of the time, but not always. I LOVE the Spa station!!!
App has unnecessary limitations
by King Zulu on 2021/02/21 00:14
I’m trying this service because of the availability of HD, Ultra HD and 3D audio formats. These are Amazon’s terms for higher bitrate, uncompressed (probably less compressed) audio, and surround sound formats including Dolby Atmos. So... I have an AppleTV hooked up to a very nice Atmos-capable receiver and speakers. Amazon’s AppleTV music app doesn’t indicate anywhere which formats tracks and albums are, even though the iPhone app does. Even though some of these are in Atmos surround format and my AppleTV and sound system will play those, Amazon’s app only sends out a stereo signal. They only enable Atmos music on their own version of a HomePod. I previously tried and canceled Tidal because their app actually will play Atmos formatted music on AppleTV, but the app itself was absolutely useless. Amazon’s isn’t turning out to be much better. Eventually, Apple Music will offer high-res and surround music formats, and they’ll probably do it right, so that you can find exactly what music you’re looking for and know which format it is. Until then, these other services -even though they have these formats available first- seem hellbent on creating terrible apps that function like virtual discount CD bins at WalMart. There’s some good stuff in there, but they’re not going to make finding it easy.
Multiple issues
by dude cmon on 2021/02/20 22:45
Glitchy and consistently making songs no longer available.
Needs lots of work
by LizS28 on 2021/02/20 22:15
I keep trying to love it, but I just can’t. Is not as user friendly as the iOne. Making and merging playlists is frustrating. Music disappears from your list. I already pay for prime, why should I pay as much for Amazon Music as other apps when is not as user friendly.
Having some problems over here
by Btme28 on 2021/02/10 04:37
Okay first of all, I LOVE this app. I listen to music all the time and I use the unlimited version of this app and it’s great. I get access to so much music which I very much enjoy. BUT..... The app has started being really finicky and terrible about crashing and loading songs. I have the largest version, but somethings still going wrong. If I exit the app for more than a couple minutes, maybe to answer a text or something or if I want to have my phone on sleep mode while I listen, my song will just stop and I’ll go back into the app and it will completely reload which is getting very annoying. I literally have to have the app open and my screen on in order to listen to music, and even then if I switch songs, or try to scroll to a different portion of the song, it won’t play the song, it will just display a loading icon and I have to close out the app and reload it just to listen to one song. Pretty please can you fix this issue so that I can properly utilize all of the amazing things this app has to offer. I really love this app but I kinda need it to be working to use it.

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.
Decent , but could be better
by REEbeachbabe on 2020/01/22 17:15
I use this music app all. the. time. I work out several days a week and play this while I’m driving most of the time. There are several things that drive me nuts about this app: First of all, songs are constantly suddenly not a usable file, and you have no idea unless you check your library frequently. There’s no notification nor replacement file provided, you have to search and find it, again, for yourself. Sometimes, the song/artist isn’t even available anymore. Secondly, there isn’t a way to play just ONE song and be done. If you play a song, the songs in your library or the songs in whatever search you’re in automatically follow. You have to create a playlist with only one song on it to have that option, which is obviously absurd. Lastly, the songs skip/have pauses semi-frequently, no matter what service I’m connected to- (various wi-fis or cellular). Sometimes the pauses are rather long. Sometimes I have to close out the app completely and reopen it to get it to play again. SO obnoxious. IMO, the annual cost of the unlimited annual plan is too expensive for these reasons. I keep it active however because I don’t want to go through the hassle of beginning a new library somewhere else. Sigh. If you’re thinking about buying this (the unlimited version, which isn’t free/included with your prime membership), I’d look elsewhere.
I like it
by gabriellarose09 on 2021/02/19 22:38
I like the app but earlier I was playing my playlist and at them time I was listening to Everybody Talks my Neon Trees and all the sudden it started sounding like a TV with static, or I don’t know how to explain it- and after 30 second it started playing another song I haven’t heard or even added to my playlist. 😳 It wasn’t even the first time it had happened either. The first time it happened i was listening to Bruno Mars (on my playlist) and it starting playing Someone to you by BANNERS. And it happened every time I had played the playlist on the same exact song. I had got used to it at first but then couldn’t stand it and wanted to listen to my music so I had deleted the playlist. 😬It would play different songs on the playlist while I was listening to other songs. And I’ve seen about one review which the girl/boy had the same problem. Except hers played scary music which I’m jealous of 🙄 like that’s so dope. Imagine your listening to your songs and then ring around the rosey starts playing- But other than that it’s an amazing app and you should totally get it 😀👍 10/10👊
This is the best for me....
by sassy4mp on 2020/08/19 17:33
This is by far the best music app I have ever used. Easy to use. Easy to search and find songs. Super simple to create or add to a playlist... I have a playlist for my 3 yo son, one for our dog during thunderstorms...((It may not reeeally help her but it makes 𝘮𝘦 feel like I am helping soothe her)). I really can’t think of a downside to this app. Love it. We have the unlimited so any song is instantly there and available to download. Amazing. We did have just the reg FREE version for years bc I refused to buy the unlimited bc . . . It may be a few dollars but I just felt like WHY?! Tho, now having it the unlimited, I feel it is 𝙑𝙀𝙍𝙔 worth it. I am a music person so I wld have music playing 𝗅𝗈𝗎𝖽𝗅𝗒 in the house at alllll times if it didn’t drive the hubby nuts. My son is more like me so more n more we have music going and r having the best random dance parties! Still wish it was free/part of the Prime subscription but....maybe one day they will include it at the level of the unlimited!!
Thought about the music unlimited.
by bunnbub54 on 2020/10/08 20:36
I just wanted to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE music. I listen to music literally ever day. But there is one thing that really gets on my nerves. The music unlimited thing is a good idea but, some songs that I really like to listen to are music unlimited, and I LOVE to listen to Taylor Swift but, a few days ago when I tried to play it, it said that it was music unlimited. But maybe you could have like “pay 10$ for one week of music unlimited songs” or “Pay 20$ for a year” or something like that. You don’t have to that but it’s just a suggestion. 😊 Update: As I said before I love music and I like the music unlimited idea but it’s just kind of expensive and when I try to listen to certain songs sometimes the day after I listen to them they become music unlimited when we don’t pay for it in the first place. So I was thinking that the person wanting to listen to music but can’t because it is unlimited could pay, say, $20-$30 for a whole year or 1/2 a year of unlimited songs. I’m not trying to cut how much money you get I’m just throwing out some ideas that you could possibly look at and talk it over. I hope that these ideas come to be useful in the future.
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
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.
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.
Great, but not always
by SaViSe on 2020/01/24 17:32
I love this app. For the most part. The available selection of music is HUGE, although there are some artists and/or albums I wish were available with out paying for Music Unlimited (I’m looking at you, Led Zeppelin!). I was EXTREMELY excited to see the new update, which added volume normalizing, which was easily my biggest complaint, since shuffling music meant constantly adjusting my phone/car’s volume from song to song. What I didn’t realize, however, was that I was going to have to re-download EVERY SINGLE SONG on my phone. I have about 7000 songs downloaded. I’m in the middle of my second day of re-downloading. It’s excruciatingly slow, even with a very fast connection, and, unless you leave the app open, constantly gets hung up or frozen, meaning you have to restart the downloads (you don’t lose what you’ve already done, thank god!). Overall, a pretty good app for music lovers, and it would probably be great if I just started using it, but there are definitely some issues, some of which could have been solved, or at least forgiven, simply by letting people know what was going on.
Improve shuffle!
by kelsarro on 2019/11/24 21:16
Overall the app is decent. I have been able to discover a lot of new artists and songs that I enjoy from the artist radios and suggestions. Here are my cons: Artist radios.. I have avoided thumbs-upping any songs that I like. I have found that when I do, it will play those songs that I thumbs-upped first every single time I play that particular radio. I guess that’s the point but I end up hating the song because it becomes way overplayed. Which is kind of how Pandora’s radio is. It’s just annoying. So don’t thumbs up anything unless you want to eventually hate it. Shuffle on My Music.. needs some improvement. It seems like the algorithm needs work or something because it will shuffle and play THE SAME SONGS and then there are songs that I will never ever hear. I end up removing songs from My Music just because the shuffle seems to love playing it. I end up letting it play alphabetically just so I can hear my other songs. That’s terrible! Also, I have noticed that the shuffle will turn off by itself if I am connecting Bluetooth. That might be unavoidable but I thought I would mention that.
New Update RUINED IT!!
by AlicksterJ on 2019/09/03 05:26
This is a great app! I can’t deny that it is extremely useful and easy to use— and is ideal for anyone who likes to listen to music on the go— however, after updating to the most recent version of the app, I have found that after a mandatory refresh, all my music was GONE! I had downloaded well over 3,000 songs (as an Unlimited subscriber) and was very disappointed to find all that gone. Not only that, but every thirty seconds the app crashes and restarts— making it to where it would be virtually impossible to re-download all those missing songs unless I had god-speed wifi, which, I regret to inform you, I do not have. I hope this is not the case through every device using the app, but it is the case for me and it is very disheartening, as I do not have data on my device and cannot access wifi 24/7 to where I could simply use it without downloads. All I ask is that the crashing gets resolved. Restarting my device did not help, either, so I believe it is the app itself. But also, please do not remove all of one’s offline music in the next update please. 🙏
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.
Mostly Doesn’t Work
by JenkinsJ on 2020/06/15 04:16
I wish I could give this app a better rating but I just can’t. It barely works with CarPlay. I have a 2019 Honda and trying to use the interface through CarPlay is frustrating. I’ll try to queue up music I’ve listened to before using the interface and some songs play. Some don’t. I have to use the app to make the song play. Trying to find songs I want to play is frustrating. The only option on CarPlay is to scroll through every song or album on my songs until I find the one I want. Search feature? Apple Music gives me a way to at least get to the first letter. Recently played is hit or miss. Many times, songs I listened to in the car yesterday are missing from recently played. I’ll be listening to music and all of sudden the bass just disappears and I’m hearing the tweeters and possibly the midrange with no base. The only way I have found to fix this is to unplug it from CarPlay and then plug it back in. Most times that works but sometimes it doesn’t. It only resets after the car has been turned off and restarted. I tried reinstalling the app and reinstalling it but that hasn’t fixed the problems. Really not sure why this app is so bad. I think you can do better.
Great!... But One problem
by Carleigh Hare😜🤣🥳😍 on 2020/08/07 22:18
Okay so don’t get me wrong it’s amazing and all but I have a problem that for some reason just happened so I was getting on music and I keep all my favorite music on my offline music playlist those who know this app know how to get to that ( by pressing those three dotes on the top right corner) so I tapped that and nothing happens I closed the app and everything and it won’t work I’m really confused and frustrated so until the decides to start working I can’t listen to my music and this is the only app I have for my music so until then no music for me this is a major bummer PLEASE FIX THIS! Update; okay I’m REALLY annoyed at this point I searched up offline music in the search bar and it popped up and it dark grey and won’t let me access it, seems to me offline music has stopped on the app and no longer exist I’m REALLY REALLY annoyed I had so much music on there and it’s all completely gone I lost everything this is very frustrating to me if this isn’t fixed I’m deleting the app and leaving a bad review😤😡
Music review.
by glevumguy on 2020/07/29 16:42
The music quality is great, and the price excellent. Though don’t go escalating it over time as you have done with the price of kindle books. Once, all below $2 now they are almost the same price as the hard copy book... There are a some things that would make the listening experience better for me. First of all videos, if available, related to the music... Then some way to see the history of what I’ve recently been listening to, and also a way of ‘saving’, whilst browsing, what I would like to listen to in the future. I sometimes leave the window open on what I would like to listen to next, but on re-opening that window, say the next day, it’s lost as I’m sent to the ‘home’ window (or ‘Home Page’ is it called ?)... And lastly why is an ebook now about the same price as the hard copy ? In life, as in business, quality is often more rewarding to pursue than monetary profit... but such subtleties, to the detriment of success, are lost if the focus is solely on the bottom line. m
Playlists & more
by Fancythat918 on 2020/08/04 05:10
I would like more flexibility on how I add music to my playlists if I had them to add them to a specific list they are not in my general list. If I add everything to my general list my playlist gets bigger than I like so I end up just dumping music. Also I like hearing an entire album but if I download the whole thing it doesn't mean I want to keep the whole thing. Be nice to set tags or reminders when you downloaded so you could go back and review and evaluate. Also I hear songs on albums that aren't in the general mainstream that I really like. It would be fun to have maybe a WhatsApp community or some other type of group where you could share songs you liked with other people who like similar music where you could talk about what a song means to you or what you really like another artist. I could live a sheltered life and that already exists. But anyway. That's just a few things for my feedback. I generally think of a lot welcome to tag me up for additional feedback.
Plenty of music, works well, could use a few more features
by Fulano2 on 2019/05/04 17:27
Th app works well. There is plenty of music selection with the paid subscription. I do like that I can pause and play the current song from anywhere in the app with the fixed play button at the bottom. Songs are easy to find. It makes good recommendations on new songs to listen to. I like that I can have multiple playlists for the family. It shows lyrics for many songs. There is a setting for disabling explicit songs which I haven’t tested well (maybe my kids). I don’t know how well the filter works. Here is what wish it did better. I would like to be able to not just pause and play the current song I am listening too but be able to easily navigate to the screen that has the forward/backward skip button. I like to restart a song over if I already stated it and I come back later and want to restart it WITHOUT losing my position in my current play list. That is the mai drawback.
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.
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.
Great all in all, but a few glitches.
by Keeping this name anonymous on 2020/09/10 15:35
I love this app. I’ll say that first. It has all of my favorite artists, and such a large selection of songs/albums. I can download music, create playlists, all the things I need for a streaming service. However, this app isn’t without its flaws. Sometimes you can’t go back to a certain part without starting the song over. If you pause a song and start it again it might stop making sound but look like it’s still playing. (It’s not, pause it and it fixes itself.) The app crashes a lot, mostly if you’re not in the app at the moment. That’s the most frustrating of all of them, as it starts whatever song you were playing over. (But not the album, play queue or playlist. It will shut down radio stations, however.) I’d like to mention that I saw a review saying you couldn’t make play queues or play a single song on loop. This is not the case. I don’t know if that was a patch or something, but I’ve always been able to play one song on loop. Perhaps it’s a difference between phone models, but I’m on a 6 and it works just fine. I don’t see why it wouldn’t on later phones. All in all I really like the app, and it’s by far the best streaming service I’ve used. The issues I listed may look like a lot, but really they’re small and easy to deal with. I seriously recommend AM. I hope this helps!
Previously great, currently not so much
by CrappyAppgfdssfhjdsdf on 2019/10/08 19:29
Love this app and use it regularly with my bluetooth in my car since i drive alot. Since the last update, it seems they have limited the number of suggested songs for you. Before, i could open that section and keep hitting the show more button and then play through the list of 200+ songs and find new songs i like. Now, it shows maybe 50 songs and doesnt allow you to show more. Another major gripe for me is when someone calls me while connected to bluetooth while the music is playing, the sound changes until i exit out of the app and restart. If i do not do this then the music sounds like i am listening to it through a phone call. Similar to music playing in the background of a phone call when you are placed on hold. Happens everytime and it gets old having to clear the app out of my background and restart it after every phonecall. This didnt occur until the latest update so I hope its fixed. Would have gave 5 stars prior to this

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
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.
Still a few basic features missing.

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.
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.

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.
Frequent errors, freezes, and car mode
by Bentley_J on 2021/02/23 00:11
If I was listening to a station, close the app, and then open the app and tapped on that station in my recently listened to music, it throws an error every single time. Literally every. Single. Time. I have uninstalled the app, I have signed in and signed out, I can’t get it to ever do that. It is really annoying to open the Music app and want to resume the same station I was previously listening to you without being able to do so. Please fix this error. Many times when the music app is still in my phones cache, when I try to listen to music in the car it just swirls on the play button, but no music ever starts playing. It does this on five bars of LTE. It is not the service. I have to force close the app, re-open it, Now when I get in my vehicle driving mode pops up in the app. Is there really no way to disable this? I have searched through all of the help functions and I do not find a way to disable this. It is actually more distracting than just letting me use the app like normal when I get into the car.

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.
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).
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Daily app for my daily jams. Better than other streaming services.
by ethasp on 2019/03/15 03:49
Downloaded anything I wanted with no issues. Being able to download music makes it great for not using data when out and about. Ive downloaded over 12 GBs of music on my phone and the sound quality is great, and in many cases, much better than streaming services. The UI could use a little work and I wish my offline playlists could be copied to an online playlist. That way I could use the playlists I normally use easier with our fire stick or Alexa. Occasionally, licensing expires for music and it can become unavailable. It doesn’t matter how popular of a song it is, it can happen. Maybe a warning could help this be less of a surprise or maybe it could let you know when or if that music becomes available again...
Frustrating
by TheRealCombat on 2019/10/01 15:37
As long as you are in a good service area it’s fine. However, the second it has a network connection issue it just gives up and stops playing music. Even if the song is already fully buffered! This is really annoying when driving through rural areas. It will randomly quit playing and pop up a modal window saying there was a network connection issue and to retry again later with a stronger connection. It does this when I have service and I can even watch the buffer continue to load in the background. Pressing play does not resume playing at this point, instead you have to skip the song to get it going again. When I’m working on a project in my shop I’m at the limit of my home WiFi. My phone will bounce around between LTE and WiFi. It seems to cause this app to just randomly stop playing. It doesn’t display a message saying why, it just stops playing. It’s always right after I get my hands dirty and don’t want to touch my phone. I mean, come on... 😕
LOVE THIS!
by Rooster-817 on 2020/03/01 03:55
I’ve been skeptical about all the different ways to spend my money online and through social media. I’ve had more negative experiences than positive ones. Negative: my grandchildren moved 250 miles away from me. Positive: last weekend was the most enjoyable trip I’ve ever had to Oklahoma City because I was able to choose the songs, CDs, and or artists of my preference. Albert Einstein‘s time space continuum went out the window and I traveled from Fort Worth to Oklahoma City in about 30 minutes. I really can’t tell you how any other music platform compares because this is the first one I’ve tried but I sure do like it. Update: One year later & Im canceling satellite radio... This is all I need... Bummer, driving through he mountains caused lost signal with AT&T; one point for sat radio, but not Amazon’s fault. Have since learned off line mode... 5 Stars.
Unlimited too expensive
by BlueTrap28 on 2018/12/23 21:09
I have had this app for a couple years now and I use it almost everyday. It has the songs I love and the layout of the entire thing is simple and easy to use. But the music unlimited is driving me crazy, I get it you want more of us to pay even more money to listen to more music I got the message. But it is really messed up when you take away our songs. What I mean by that is one time I was listening to Get free by Major Lazor for a couple months and one day it wouldn’t let me play it anymore, it’s been moved to unlimited. This wouldn’t be huge except for how expensive unlimited is ON TOP of my $130 Prime membership. Last I checked, it was all or nothing, only two people in my family use prime music so I don’t need any more than 2 users but it’s nothing or whole family for almost $20/mo with taxes. I’m just not having it. I’ve cancelled my auto renewal for prime and I just refuse to give them another $1 at this point.
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.
Good but needs a few tweaks
by dweeb!! on 2020/10/20 18:52
In general, I like the app. I agree with a lot of people that complain about the music you have to pay for. It is annoying. But I don’t find too many songs that I’m looking to play fall in that category. What does annoying me is… When I am playing a playlist that is random play, I can’t see what songs are coming up. Even though it’s one of my playlist, I want to see the sequence from the random. I would like to be able to do that and maybe rearrange them a little. There is no sorting of songs that you put in playlists. The only way you can view the songs in a playlist is sequentially in the order you put them in there. There needs to be a way of rearranging them by artist or album or something. After I put a couple hundred songs in a playlist I want to see what’s missing and it’s hard to do when there’s no sorting available.
pretty good but could use improvement
by rachel is the best at bedwars on 2020/05/17 22:47
i love how most of the songs are available for me to use without paying for unlimited (i am both unwilling and unable to) but i have a few complaints. 1) moving songs in a playlist is hard. whenever you add a new song it goes all the way to the bottom and the only way you can rearrange things is remove them and add them back in the order you want 2) one song i had on the playlist (let’s call it A and the artist is B) when i searched for A, i could see it was by B and even when i saw it in the album i could see B’s name. but when i put that specific song (A) in my playlist, i could not see that the song was by B. it said “unknown artist” but it’s clearly known because it shows it elsewhere 3) sometimes the audio goes out, but it might be due to other reasons (my headphones, my family screaming in the background, or my internet connection). i think it’s mostly due to those reasons and not the app. however, when i leave the app for too long, the song that hadn’t finished starts over. 4) some songs on one album have lyrics shown, and others on the same album don’t?? why is that, why can’t y’all be consistent? not that big of a deal though otherwise it’s a pretty great app and i love listening to my favorite artists there without having to pay for everything
Alright, removes music and really makes you want unlimited
by TelMinz on 2019/02/17 03:35
The song selection is pretty good with out paying the premium for unlimited. If your just looking for an app to just play random music, there’s probably better options out there. I wouldn’t know. I’ve never tried them really. The only thing I don’t like. This app has a habit of removing music that’s is in your library. Royalties change all the time, I get it, but you can sometimes search for the song the next week and it’s available again, usually never again tho. Upgrade to prime if you love music tho, worth it imo. Every song *almost*. Obscure tracks that release on underground/bootleg don’t usually show up. But other than that I’ve had pretty good luck. I’ll give more feedback after I’ve used unlimited for several months+. I had prime only for years and just got unlimited. Enjoying it so far.
3 star app Begs for a 5 star review
by A3A2A4 on 2020/01/02 14:39
Overall, the app is okay. I can find most music I want. But it is hard work to use. You can't add songs from one playlist to another. if you have it in offline mode and no internet connection, it still has a pop up that tells you to go into your WiFi settings and turn it on, which is annoying. It's difficult to delete music from your phone, you have to delete each individual song, there isn't select option to delete multiple songs. It's tricky to understand exactly what is offline and online. And even if a song is offline and down a loaded, if it is on a playlist that isn't flagged as "offline" it won't play. If you download a pre organized playlist, you can't edit or add new music, you have to add the playlist to the queue, add songs, save it as a new playlist which can crash the app. So while it's functional, it's not the most convenient.
Good music with a lot of choices
by Yovdakeeya on 2020/02/03 23:02
I really like Prime Music. They have lots of choices including many full albums. However, there are 2 downfalls: 1. The music stops if more than one device is playing. It didn’t do this before and it’s very frustrating. 2. They are obnoxiously persistent in trying to push their more expensive unlimited version. Often they will obstruct the ability to go directly to Prime Music—instead, making you opt out of the higher cost unlimited version. Several times, when I opted out of the unlimited, instead of directing me to Prime Music it would just take me back to the previous screen. I’ve been a Prime member for several years and it started doing this a few months ago. Prime Music is not a free service. There is a monthly fee. For that reason alone, they should make it easy to use and not try to force you to use the more expensive version.

Crashes every time I use it
by vbbgggdfhjbgted on 2021/02/23 22:44
I use this app almost exclusively, namely because of the navigation and available content. However, upon starting the app, it will crash within 2 minutes guaranteed. I just restart it and it works fine, but I literally have to do this every time I use it. I guess it’s just become a known nuisance at this point but I would love for it to be fixed.

by Beatleboy's uncle on 2021/02/23 20:15
Let’s be honest, folks: what you call HD isn’t HD to the rest of the industry - it’s simply CD quality. Granted, it’s infinitely superior to MP3s, but it’s not HD.

Every once in a while it stops playing and just shows loading forever. Weird though it always seems to load at a number 9 in the song timing. Example 1:09. 1:19. 1:59. Always a 9 on the end
Music app
by F.Mel on 2021/02/23 18:04
Couple tricky bits—like how to find your music if it disappears (hint sign out and sign back in)—but really enjoying it for the most part. There’s a good selection but I hope it continues to grow. Building playlist 🙌🏼, finding artist or podcast🙌🏼, reviewing music you’ve played🙌🏼, downloading songs👏🏻
no stars.
by babajdbdjsnhshsjwbsha on 2021/02/23 17:47
Amazon music used to be so good and I used to be able to let my music play forever and now after 30 seconds it stops. It is so frustrating. and then you have to reload into the app and it is so annoying. and then some of your music doesn’t even play it says it’s loading or makes these static sounds. I want Amazon music to go back to the way it was without so many bug problems. I am switching to Apple Music because it actually works.
Great awesome.

Still doesn’t work

3 updates later and still can’t even make it through one song before the app quits itself smh
Unlimited nagware
by sbmlusa on 2021/02/23 15:42
The relentless frequency of Unlimited advertising modal screen forces user to dismiss it before they could use the app is the main reason Im giving this app a one star rating. I have zero interest in Unlimited, and as a Prime member, and I have to put up with this aggressive tactic from Amazon music forcing advertising down their paying customers throat. Amazon basically says, “we dont care about our user experience, lets aggravate them and put their headspace in such a negative experience so that they are forced to upgrade every time they open app. If they dont want to deal with nagware, pay $10/month. They need us, we dont need them! Pay up ransom fee before you can listen to music that you already paid for! We want profit, this is what matters to us. You want a superior user experience? Go use Apple Music or Tidal. Amazon music is the kmart of music services, and you will put up with a crappy user experience because we are affordable. There is no free lunch. You only pay 100/year for prime. We want $120/year on top of your 100/year prime membership! Pay up and we will remove our modal dialog blocking your interactions with our app!” Amazon music is exactly what they are: poor user experience and affordable.
Bad Service
by DarkeyedJunko on 2021/02/23 15:29
Music constantly becomes unavailable after adding to playlists.
Amazon Music Unlimited subscriber here
by QuadricepDrive on 2021/02/23 14:45
The FLAC audio files sound absolutely awesome! Well worth the price of admission if you have above average audio equipment to play music through. On some songs, there is detail in the music I never heard before. Amazon has a great feature to build your music library by suggesting similar artists to the one you’re currently creating a playlist out of. My only gripe is that the app does not fully integrate over to HEOS. (Custom playlists and stations don’t appear in HEOS). I can airplay them over from my iPhone, since the files are converted to PCM, both PCM and FLAC files are lossless; but would like to play the music without my iPhone. Current set up, Denon X4500H, 2 GoldenEar Triton Two+, 1 GoldenEar SuperCenter XL, 4 GoldenEar SuperSat 3, 2 GoldenEar ForceField 2. Feedback for Amazon, please allow for a static section where I can find the stations I created just like you have for the playlists I created. By the way, Pandora does a better job with their stations. I find that I’m skipping more tracks on Amazon stations, therefore I’m having to build more playlists for my variety of music tastes. Fix this and you get 5 stars. The HEOS issue belongs to Denon I believe, their customer service is practically non existent, so I don’t think there is a fix anytime soon.

by CanDo4U on 2021/02/23 14:31
Amazon unlimited is the best! Who would have thought uninterrupted music is a necessity for an even flow of listening! Thank you,🥳
Why r all the nick names taken!!!!
by ahhhhhhhhhhhhy on 2021/02/23 13:43
Hi so I really like it. I wish that all music could be played through your phone and not Alexa devices. I also wish you didn’t have to have Amazon unlimited to listen to all music. I am glad that drivers license doesn’t need unlimited though! Ok bye!!!
Having trouble recently
by Jspoffhaywood on 2021/02/23 12:45
Since the latest update my playlist is very glitchy. It cuts off in the middle of songs and when I open the app it is on a weird “preferences” screen that doesn’t let me access my playlist. I have to X out of it and then scroll through the list to open it. When I do, none of the songs will play. I just deleted and reinstalled the app and I am hoping this resolves the problem, but not being able to listen to my playlist the usual way is very annoying (especially when I am driving!)
Bring back genre sorting
by Genre2021 on 2021/02/23 12:37
I enjoy the app and music choices. But greatly miss the genre sorting option. I could choose Christian or Country and enjoy only those songs in my library. Please bring genre sorting back.
Pretty good. Can do better!
by Padwalshubham on 2021/02/23 09:34
Better than Spotify or Apple Music in music discovery! UI needs serious upgrade. Music library can be larger.

Glitches Like CRAZY

Omg 90% of the songs are glitching!! Sooo annoying!
Kept crashing
by had_to_switch on 2021/02/23 02:19
Worked great for the first year or so. The past month it kept crashing or the songs would go out of frequency and skip. Switched to a better and cheaper service, same maker as my phone (usually not allowed to name other products).
App
by thisisarealpersonx24 on 2021/02/23 02:10
App fails all the time in the middle of a song. Siri pop ups come up all the time trying to get permissions. Another reason to Amazon is unreliable.
Fabulous app
by Linedman on 2021/02/23 02:07
Love the music selection. Play it every day. Love it. Great choices. All the music I need!!
Continually crashes
by Billy_H. on 2021/02/23 01:39
App continually crashes about 2-3 minutes after opening it. I have the masters version of the app, the latest iOS update, WiFi or cell signal doesn’t matter...crash. Cmon Amazon, fix this crap!
Frequent errors, freezes, and car mode
by Bentley_J on 2021/02/23 00:11
If I was listening to a station, close the app, and then open the app and tapped on that station in my recently listened to music, it throws an error every single time. Literally every. Single. Time. I have uninstalled the app, I have signed in and signed out, I can’t get it to ever do that. It is really annoying to open the Music app and want to resume the same station I was previously listening to you without being able to do so. Please fix this error. Many times when the music app is still in my phones cache, when I try to listen to music in the car it just swirls on the play button, but no music ever starts playing. It does this on five bars of LTE. It is not the service. I have to force close the app, re-open it, Now when I get in my vehicle driving mode pops up in the app. Is there really no way to disable this? I have searched through all of the help functions and I do not find a way to disable this. It is actually more distracting than just letting me use the app like normal when I get into the car.
Music glitches
by daileyjam on 2021/02/22 23:38
It will play some songs and then others will glitch in the middle of it and make an awful noise that sounds like it’s not from this Earth.
I would really like to like
by Mobilken on 2021/02/22 23:36
First I really only use it connecting to my Alexas that are throughout the house. However it will only play 5/8 songs at a time and most recently Alexa says it can’t find my music library unless I de register and go through the set up process

Glitchy as all get out
by B11802 on 2021/02/22 22:10
Sadly, I am deleting this app because it is so glitchy. Every song I play on here is nothing but a digital warbling glitch. Definitely a bummer because it has all the songs in the world and would be an amazing app if only it properly functioned.
Awful

Music keeps cutting out
Little bit of a problem
by JemmaH08 on 2021/02/22 21:26
This app has the potential to be amazing but every time I try to listen to a song it will either be stuck loading forever or only play for half the song and stop like I never opened the app. -Little bit of a problem
Crashes all the time; will never beat Spotify
by nolmil on 2021/02/22 21:00
Amazon has tried to compete with Spotify and Apple Music, but will never match other music streaming platforms, for several reasons: 1. The interface is klutzy. Amazon has tried to revamp it several times, but it will always be a Spotify-want-to-be, and it does not come close to matching the simplicity of Spotify. 2. It crashes—at random times, all the time. Both the iOS and Mac OS versions randomly crash and freeze. If it happened one or twice, it would be forgivable, but it happens regularly and has been a problem a long time—Amazon has yet to fix it. 3. It is not as user-friendly as Spotify and does not let you explore new music and genres in the way Spotify does. It has tried to implement public playlists and generated custom playlists, but it is far behind Spotify’s algorithms. 4. If you have a family plan, you have to create separate Amazon accounts for each family member. That’s right: your 8-year-old needs his own Amazon account (linked to a credit card) to listen to his own music. If you view Amazon Music as an extension of your prime account, you can continue to tolerate it, but if you’re paying for the unlimited version, invest the same money in Spotify instead—it costs the same and is significantly better in every way.
Music can freak out sometimes
by Cushman25778 on 2021/02/22 19:18
Sometimes the music will start playing but it’ll run too fast or won’t play a song at all
Needs more free songs
by Archynan on 2021/02/22 19:13
I would like to see less songs being moved to the plus membership. Other than that, great music application. Songs are too often taken away after being free for a time.
Amazon premium music
by Sfsegderdd on 2021/02/22 19:08
There are too many repeats. Far too many repeats. It’s annoying and frustrating. I’m only doing it because of the 90 day trial. I would not pay $10.99 for the service.

Something is up with latest version. Keeps crashing and songs get stuff in infinite loading...much as others have described. Please fix. I’ve come to really enjoy and rely on this app!
Would like to give more stars but....
by olgkei on 2021/02/22 18:50
I can not enjoy listening to music because the app is always closing out. I’ve updated the app every time it is required and the app still closes out. Extremely annoying, I do not know why but I just stopped using it.
Over it
by big122345!!?$$ on 2021/02/22 18:30
The longer I have this app the more irritated I get with it. At first I thought something was wrong with my speakers I have because it would randomly make this horrible scratch and skip sound but I discovered it’s the app. Then listening to certain songs they will randomly start playing a different song then go back to the song I originally picked.

Constant Issues 0 stars
by Brad Cox on 2021/02/22 16:52
This is the worst app I have on my phone/iPad. Constantly has issues, music stops playing, constantly does what looks like a reset. I start a song and the songs stops, go to look and it has completely lost what it was doing. Tried numerous times to delete and re-download the app and reset the app but the issues continue on and on, and on. Worst app I have ever used. 0 stars if I could.
Reduced services
by toledome on 2021/02/22 16:48
Amazon keeps reducing the services that used to be free in an effort to force you into subscription. Used to be able to upload songs you already owned...not anymore. Ok, so have to purchase new “digital” versions. No biggie. But then when you can’t make playlists of songs you have already purchased on Amazon? That requires a reduction in stars.
Okay app
by jwsseriously on 2021/02/22 14:22
App just closes on its own while listening to songs. Could add more songs to the stations. Same songs over and over, etc..,

Amazon music is exactly what I need when I need it. It’s simple enough for even me to make a playlist and add to it, I get my music and lyrics when I want them, great job to the staff that has made this happen... John D Ohman Time has come and gone, and the quality of Amazon music is still Platinum performance, you have listened to customer, followed work instructions, and adhered to a successful control plan great job, review what each of you do often and do not let this great work slip John D Ohman 2-22-2021
Could be better
by Jr_93xp on 2021/02/22 11:43
Some things that I have gotten use to with other music streams just aren’t there but over all very good and user friendly.
Quality
by Africalisa on 2021/02/22 09:28
I love being able to listen whenever and wherever I happen to be but lately the sound quality has taken a bad turn. I don’t know if it is my connection/data that is affecting it but at least 2-3 times each hour a song will abruptly break off into a weird static either for the entire song or part of a song and then when sound comes back it switches to a different song.
App crashes with “first use”
by angry F3 on 2021/02/22 06:07
When the app starts it plays for about 30 seconds and then crashes. I need to reopen the app, and then it works fine. Also, Why can’t I like a song unless it’s on a station?
New interface is not consistent
by scoobsdo on 2021/02/22 03:19

Bad Quality
by haveagreatdayguyslmao on 2021/02/22 02:59
I really don’t know what is going on. I always hear the same freaking “alien” sounds every time I try to play a song. In the beginning everything was fine but now it doesn’t even let me get through a song without it acting up. I’m about to cancel my suscription. I really don’t want to though🥺 I hope it fixes itself
Awesome
by energy 2point o on 2021/02/22 02:42
This is the best app ever if you want music and it is easy to set up but it is a little expensive and I wish it would play without stopping while someone else is playing there music without paying more money for it.But it is a really good app overall.

Decent App, needs improvement
by harbulary batteries on 2021/02/21 23:49
This app allows unlimited streaming of virtually anything to anyone with an Amazon Prime account. Unfortunately, Amazon has skimped on programming with this app. It constantly crashes and entire songs and/or playlists come through scratchy and unbearable. Hopefully Amazon puts some more development into this app.
“Now playing” visual disappears since update
by TherapyWicki on 2021/02/21 23:34
Greeting! Love the app - using for years!! Found a bug in most recent update 2/20/2021. Noticing if I “shuffle all songs” & starts playing, I cannot view the “up next/prior” playlist on the bottom LH corner. When I touch it, it freezes, then crashes the app. Please address for the next update. Thanks!
iTunes is better

Critical app issue
by kciphone94 on 2021/02/21 18:16
This app used to work perfectly but after a recent update, the app will force close after about two minutes. In addition, many songs have been slow to load (not that you can listen to them anyway). If you haven't updated yet, I recommend waiting until the issues are fixed.
Keeps crashing
by Mitten State Firefighter on 2021/02/21 18:10
I’ve been using Amazon music since 2008 and never had a problem before. Now since I update my iPhone 12 to iOS 14.4, Amazon music crashes after attempting to play a song. I’ve heard that Amazon music recognizes the newest iOS update as a jail break, but there has to be something out there to fix it. Why should I keep spending money on songs and music I can’t listen to on my phone?
Playback error

Enjoyment and remembering with music
by Dee Jhay on 2021/02/21 17:50
Wow I’m so happy to have ears to hear all those beautiful music. I am very pleased with the service. So many ways to entertain your family and friends. Especially when you are wherever you go. I shared this with my friends and coworkers as well. They are amazed by the variety of music. Hard to ignore. Thanks Amazon. I’m still enjoying.
Great Service, Terrible App
by SebastiãoofEC on 2021/02/21 17:17
I love all the music and options on here, but the app constantly crashes and logs me out all the time. It’s very unreliable and the menus and navigation don’t always work, either. It’s also worth noting that getting Amazon Music isn’t really worth it if you don’t have the Unlimited subscription. Overall okay but needs a lot of work.
Family Plan Issues
by Jsalas85 on 2021/02/21 17:06
I was getting frustrated that my music kept stopping. Thought it was because it was getting interrupted when it played on another device. Tried to upgrade my plan to Family Plan. I can’t find the option and neither Apple or Amazon seem to be able to help me!!

Consistently Crashing
by GhoSStrider on 2021/02/21 13:45
Not sure what’s going on with recent updates but the app is essentially unusable now. I can listen to one and occasionally two songs before it crashes. If this isn’t fixed soon, I’m going to consider switching my Amazon HD subscription to another service.
Scramble noise on many of the songs
by Reanee R on 2021/02/21 13:34
Many of the songs I add will play fine at first but then a terrible scrambling noise cuts in. Other songs also break in momentarily and some songs skip. It is TERRIBLE! I subscribed to the free trial of Unlimited & it was the same issue. I no longer even want to listen to the free music included in my Prime membership, much less PAY for Unlimited.
Crashes continuously
by bigreen505 on 2021/02/21 06:05
I really want to like this app. I subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited because I think overall it is the best streaming music service. However the app crashes constantly and it doesn’t work well with CarPlay. These problems are becoming deal breakers for me. I’ve deleted and re-downloaded the app and that didn’t help. I’m using an iPhone 11 Pro with the most recent iOS, so I don’t think the device is the problem. The issues are the same over WiFi or cellular.
Doesn’t play the song I chose

Super Disappointed
by Ottis Thomas on 2021/02/21 05:36
I’ve been a Prime member for 6+ years & every year the service & deals get worse & worse. I’ve reported several issues with the music app over the years & NOTHING! I’m still experiencing the same issues I had in 2017!!!! The comedy station have been updated in over 4 years! It just plays the same 4-5 comedians & I’m unable to reset my preferences. Also, apparently being a prime member doesn’t mean anything anymore. You like a song that you put in your playlist? Too bad, it’s no longer available to you because it became popular & now Amazon decided you have to upgrade to unlimited to hear it.
Knows my preference
by Dojopadilla on 2021/02/21 03:49

While I like Amazon Music and that I can access my library on any device (desktop, laptop, iPhone, iPad Air, Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tablet), it periodically displays the wrong album art. I use Tag Scanner to try and fix the file(s) and re-upload them. That works most of the time, but not always. I LOVE the Spa station!!!
App has unnecessary limitations
by King Zulu on 2021/02/21 00:14
I’m trying this service because of the availability of HD, Ultra HD and 3D audio formats. These are Amazon’s terms for higher bitrate, uncompressed (probably less compressed) audio, and surround sound formats including Dolby Atmos. So... I have an AppleTV hooked up to a very nice Atmos-capable receiver and speakers. Amazon’s AppleTV music app doesn’t indicate anywhere which formats tracks and albums are, even though the iPhone app does. Even though some of these are in Atmos surround format and my AppleTV and sound system will play those, Amazon’s app only sends out a stereo signal. They only enable Atmos music on their own version of a HomePod. I previously tried and canceled Tidal because their app actually will play Atmos formatted music on AppleTV, but the app itself was absolutely useless. Amazon’s isn’t turning out to be much better. Eventually, Apple Music will offer high-res and surround music formats, and they’ll probably do it right, so that you can find exactly what music you’re looking for and know which format it is. Until then, these other services -even though they have these formats available first- seem hellbent on creating terrible apps that function like virtual discount CD bins at WalMart. There’s some good stuff in there, but they’re not going to make finding it easy.

I keep trying to love it, but I just can’t. Is not as user friendly as the iOne. Making and merging playlists is frustrating. Music disappears from your list. I already pay for prime, why should I pay as much for Amazon Music as other apps when is not as user friendly.
Having some problems over here
by Btme28 on 2021/02/10 04:37
Okay first of all, I LOVE this app. I listen to music all the time and I use the unlimited version of this app and it’s great. I get access to so much music which I very much enjoy. BUT..... The app has started being really finicky and terrible about crashing and loading songs. I have the largest version, but somethings still going wrong. If I exit the app for more than a couple minutes, maybe to answer a text or something or if I want to have my phone on sleep mode while I listen, my song will just stop and I’ll go back into the app and it will completely reload which is getting very annoying. I literally have to have the app open and my screen on in order to listen to music, and even then if I switch songs, or try to scroll to a different portion of the song, it won’t play the song, it will just display a loading icon and I have to close out the app and reload it just to listen to one song. Pretty please can you fix this issue so that I can properly utilize all of the amazing things this app has to offer. I really love this app but I kinda need it to be working to use it.
Needs Garlic

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.
Decent , but could be better
by REEbeachbabe on 2020/01/22 17:15
I use this music app all. the. time. I work out several days a week and play this while I’m driving most of the time. There are several things that drive me nuts about this app: First of all, songs are constantly suddenly not a usable file, and you have no idea unless you check your library frequently. There’s no notification nor replacement file provided, you have to search and find it, again, for yourself. Sometimes, the song/artist isn’t even available anymore. Secondly, there isn’t a way to play just ONE song and be done. If you play a song, the songs in your library or the songs in whatever search you’re in automatically follow. You have to create a playlist with only one song on it to have that option, which is obviously absurd. Lastly, the songs skip/have pauses semi-frequently, no matter what service I’m connected to- (various wi-fis or cellular). Sometimes the pauses are rather long. Sometimes I have to close out the app completely and reopen it to get it to play again. SO obnoxious. IMO, the annual cost of the unlimited annual plan is too expensive for these reasons. I keep it active however because I don’t want to go through the hassle of beginning a new library somewhere else. Sigh. If you’re thinking about buying this (the unlimited version, which isn’t free/included with your prime membership), I’d look elsewhere.
I like it
by gabriellarose09 on 2021/02/19 22:38
I like the app but earlier I was playing my playlist and at them time I was listening to Everybody Talks my Neon Trees and all the sudden it started sounding like a TV with static, or I don’t know how to explain it- and after 30 second it started playing another song I haven’t heard or even added to my playlist. 😳 It wasn’t even the first time it had happened either. The first time it happened i was listening to Bruno Mars (on my playlist) and it starting playing Someone to you by BANNERS. And it happened every time I had played the playlist on the same exact song. I had got used to it at first but then couldn’t stand it and wanted to listen to my music so I had deleted the playlist. 😬It would play different songs on the playlist while I was listening to other songs. And I’ve seen about one review which the girl/boy had the same problem. Except hers played scary music which I’m jealous of 🙄 like that’s so dope. Imagine your listening to your songs and then ring around the rosey starts playing- But other than that it’s an amazing app and you should totally get it 😀👍 10/10👊
This is the best for me....
by sassy4mp on 2020/08/19 17:33
This is by far the best music app I have ever used. Easy to use. Easy to search and find songs. Super simple to create or add to a playlist... I have a playlist for my 3 yo son, one for our dog during thunderstorms...((It may not reeeally help her but it makes 𝘮𝘦 feel like I am helping soothe her)). I really can’t think of a downside to this app. Love it. We have the unlimited so any song is instantly there and available to download. Amazing. We did have just the reg FREE version for years bc I refused to buy the unlimited bc . . . It may be a few dollars but I just felt like WHY?! Tho, now having it the unlimited, I feel it is 𝙑𝙀𝙍𝙔 worth it. I am a music person so I wld have music playing 𝗅𝗈𝗎𝖽𝗅𝗒 in the house at alllll times if it didn’t drive the hubby nuts. My son is more like me so more n more we have music going and r having the best random dance parties! Still wish it was free/part of the Prime subscription but....maybe one day they will include it at the level of the unlimited!!
Thought about the music unlimited.
by bunnbub54 on 2020/10/08 20:36
I just wanted to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE music. I listen to music literally ever day. But there is one thing that really gets on my nerves. The music unlimited thing is a good idea but, some songs that I really like to listen to are music unlimited, and I LOVE to listen to Taylor Swift but, a few days ago when I tried to play it, it said that it was music unlimited. But maybe you could have like “pay 10$ for one week of music unlimited songs” or “Pay 20$ for a year” or something like that. You don’t have to that but it’s just a suggestion. 😊 Update: As I said before I love music and I like the music unlimited idea but it’s just kind of expensive and when I try to listen to certain songs sometimes the day after I listen to them they become music unlimited when we don’t pay for it in the first place. So I was thinking that the person wanting to listen to music but can’t because it is unlimited could pay, say, $20-$30 for a whole year or 1/2 a year of unlimited songs. I’m not trying to cut how much money you get I’m just throwing out some ideas that you could possibly look at and talk it over. I hope that these ideas come to be useful in the future.
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
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.
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.
Great, but not always
by SaViSe on 2020/01/24 17:32
I love this app. For the most part. The available selection of music is HUGE, although there are some artists and/or albums I wish were available with out paying for Music Unlimited (I’m looking at you, Led Zeppelin!). I was EXTREMELY excited to see the new update, which added volume normalizing, which was easily my biggest complaint, since shuffling music meant constantly adjusting my phone/car’s volume from song to song. What I didn’t realize, however, was that I was going to have to re-download EVERY SINGLE SONG on my phone. I have about 7000 songs downloaded. I’m in the middle of my second day of re-downloading. It’s excruciatingly slow, even with a very fast connection, and, unless you leave the app open, constantly gets hung up or frozen, meaning you have to restart the downloads (you don’t lose what you’ve already done, thank god!). Overall, a pretty good app for music lovers, and it would probably be great if I just started using it, but there are definitely some issues, some of which could have been solved, or at least forgiven, simply by letting people know what was going on.
Improve shuffle!
by kelsarro on 2019/11/24 21:16
Overall the app is decent. I have been able to discover a lot of new artists and songs that I enjoy from the artist radios and suggestions. Here are my cons: Artist radios.. I have avoided thumbs-upping any songs that I like. I have found that when I do, it will play those songs that I thumbs-upped first every single time I play that particular radio. I guess that’s the point but I end up hating the song because it becomes way overplayed. Which is kind of how Pandora’s radio is. It’s just annoying. So don’t thumbs up anything unless you want to eventually hate it. Shuffle on My Music.. needs some improvement. It seems like the algorithm needs work or something because it will shuffle and play THE SAME SONGS and then there are songs that I will never ever hear. I end up removing songs from My Music just because the shuffle seems to love playing it. I end up letting it play alphabetically just so I can hear my other songs. That’s terrible! Also, I have noticed that the shuffle will turn off by itself if I am connecting Bluetooth. That might be unavoidable but I thought I would mention that.
New Update RUINED IT!!
by AlicksterJ on 2019/09/03 05:26
This is a great app! I can’t deny that it is extremely useful and easy to use— and is ideal for anyone who likes to listen to music on the go— however, after updating to the most recent version of the app, I have found that after a mandatory refresh, all my music was GONE! I had downloaded well over 3,000 songs (as an Unlimited subscriber) and was very disappointed to find all that gone. Not only that, but every thirty seconds the app crashes and restarts— making it to where it would be virtually impossible to re-download all those missing songs unless I had god-speed wifi, which, I regret to inform you, I do not have. I hope this is not the case through every device using the app, but it is the case for me and it is very disheartening, as I do not have data on my device and cannot access wifi 24/7 to where I could simply use it without downloads. All I ask is that the crashing gets resolved. Restarting my device did not help, either, so I believe it is the app itself. But also, please do not remove all of one’s offline music in the next update please. 🙏
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.
Mostly Doesn’t Work
by JenkinsJ on 2020/06/15 04:16
I wish I could give this app a better rating but I just can’t. It barely works with CarPlay. I have a 2019 Honda and trying to use the interface through CarPlay is frustrating. I’ll try to queue up music I’ve listened to before using the interface and some songs play. Some don’t. I have to use the app to make the song play. Trying to find songs I want to play is frustrating. The only option on CarPlay is to scroll through every song or album on my songs until I find the one I want. Search feature? Apple Music gives me a way to at least get to the first letter. Recently played is hit or miss. Many times, songs I listened to in the car yesterday are missing from recently played. I’ll be listening to music and all of sudden the bass just disappears and I’m hearing the tweeters and possibly the midrange with no base. The only way I have found to fix this is to unplug it from CarPlay and then plug it back in. Most times that works but sometimes it doesn’t. It only resets after the car has been turned off and restarted. I tried reinstalling the app and reinstalling it but that hasn’t fixed the problems. Really not sure why this app is so bad. I think you can do better.
Great!... But One problem
by Carleigh Hare😜🤣🥳😍 on 2020/08/07 22:18
Okay so don’t get me wrong it’s amazing and all but I have a problem that for some reason just happened so I was getting on music and I keep all my favorite music on my offline music playlist those who know this app know how to get to that ( by pressing those three dotes on the top right corner) so I tapped that and nothing happens I closed the app and everything and it won’t work I’m really confused and frustrated so until the decides to start working I can’t listen to my music and this is the only app I have for my music so until then no music for me this is a major bummer PLEASE FIX THIS! Update; okay I’m REALLY annoyed at this point I searched up offline music in the search bar and it popped up and it dark grey and won’t let me access it, seems to me offline music has stopped on the app and no longer exist I’m REALLY REALLY annoyed I had so much music on there and it’s all completely gone I lost everything this is very frustrating to me if this isn’t fixed I’m deleting the app and leaving a bad review😤😡
Music review.
by glevumguy on 2020/07/29 16:42
The music quality is great, and the price excellent. Though don’t go escalating it over time as you have done with the price of kindle books. Once, all below $2 now they are almost the same price as the hard copy book... There are a some things that would make the listening experience better for me. First of all videos, if available, related to the music... Then some way to see the history of what I’ve recently been listening to, and also a way of ‘saving’, whilst browsing, what I would like to listen to in the future. I sometimes leave the window open on what I would like to listen to next, but on re-opening that window, say the next day, it’s lost as I’m sent to the ‘home’ window (or ‘Home Page’ is it called ?)... And lastly why is an ebook now about the same price as the hard copy ? In life, as in business, quality is often more rewarding to pursue than monetary profit... but such subtleties, to the detriment of success, are lost if the focus is solely on the bottom line. m
Playlists & more
by Fancythat918 on 2020/08/04 05:10
I would like more flexibility on how I add music to my playlists if I had them to add them to a specific list they are not in my general list. If I add everything to my general list my playlist gets bigger than I like so I end up just dumping music. Also I like hearing an entire album but if I download the whole thing it doesn't mean I want to keep the whole thing. Be nice to set tags or reminders when you downloaded so you could go back and review and evaluate. Also I hear songs on albums that aren't in the general mainstream that I really like. It would be fun to have maybe a WhatsApp community or some other type of group where you could share songs you liked with other people who like similar music where you could talk about what a song means to you or what you really like another artist. I could live a sheltered life and that already exists. But anyway. That's just a few things for my feedback. I generally think of a lot welcome to tag me up for additional feedback.
Plenty of music, works well, could use a few more features
by Fulano2 on 2019/05/04 17:27
Th app works well. There is plenty of music selection with the paid subscription. I do like that I can pause and play the current song from anywhere in the app with the fixed play button at the bottom. Songs are easy to find. It makes good recommendations on new songs to listen to. I like that I can have multiple playlists for the family. It shows lyrics for many songs. There is a setting for disabling explicit songs which I haven’t tested well (maybe my kids). I don’t know how well the filter works. Here is what wish it did better. I would like to be able to not just pause and play the current song I am listening too but be able to easily navigate to the screen that has the forward/backward skip button. I like to restart a song over if I already stated it and I come back later and want to restart it WITHOUT losing my position in my current play list. That is the mai drawback.
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.
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.
Great all in all, but a few glitches.
by Keeping this name anonymous on 2020/09/10 15:35
I love this app. I’ll say that first. It has all of my favorite artists, and such a large selection of songs/albums. I can download music, create playlists, all the things I need for a streaming service. However, this app isn’t without its flaws. Sometimes you can’t go back to a certain part without starting the song over. If you pause a song and start it again it might stop making sound but look like it’s still playing. (It’s not, pause it and it fixes itself.) The app crashes a lot, mostly if you’re not in the app at the moment. That’s the most frustrating of all of them, as it starts whatever song you were playing over. (But not the album, play queue or playlist. It will shut down radio stations, however.) I’d like to mention that I saw a review saying you couldn’t make play queues or play a single song on loop. This is not the case. I don’t know if that was a patch or something, but I’ve always been able to play one song on loop. Perhaps it’s a difference between phone models, but I’m on a 6 and it works just fine. I don’t see why it wouldn’t on later phones. All in all I really like the app, and it’s by far the best streaming service I’ve used. The issues I listed may look like a lot, but really they’re small and easy to deal with. I seriously recommend AM. I hope this helps!
Previously great, currently not so much
by CrappyAppgfdssfhjdsdf on 2019/10/08 19:29
Love this app and use it regularly with my bluetooth in my car since i drive alot. Since the last update, it seems they have limited the number of suggested songs for you. Before, i could open that section and keep hitting the show more button and then play through the list of 200+ songs and find new songs i like. Now, it shows maybe 50 songs and doesnt allow you to show more. Another major gripe for me is when someone calls me while connected to bluetooth while the music is playing, the sound changes until i exit out of the app and restart. If i do not do this then the music sounds like i am listening to it through a phone call. Similar to music playing in the background of a phone call when you are placed on hold. Happens everytime and it gets old having to clear the app out of my background and restart it after every phonecall. This didnt occur until the latest update so I hope its fixed. Would have gave 5 stars prior to this
Like it
by Roamingricky on 2019/04/01 14:36
So far it’s working out well, I do like the Alexa feature, but it doesn’t work when my iPad isn't active so you still have to push buttons. LOL. So far I’ve been able to find all the music I have been looking for, time will tell, can’t give them five stars because there’s always room for improvement in the structure of the app. For example if you go to play Lady Gaga, it will only play the same four songs over and over until you actually go and open it up and make them play the full playlist, that seems like a waste of time, who would ask to play Lady Gaga and only want the same four songs? Should just give u the full list right off. Some of the other controls and features take a while to hunt and peck to find as well, some work on the user-friendly interface wouldn’t hurt. Overall for the music that I listen to, I don’t find the monthly subscription fee overly excessive. I will continue to enjoy your product. Thank you
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.
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.
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.
Bittersweet
by Amyzon71 on 2020/12/16 13:10
I like that this comes with Prime, but I don’t like that the algorithms need more improvement. I end up listening to songs that have very little musical similarity to the song or type of music I choose. Also, at the Home Screen, I am bombarded with a bunch of stations and lists that are piled on top of what I really want, and that’s my recents first. “Stations You Might Like” and such, change every time I listen to a different genre, which makes it hard to explore. I’ll listen to Christmas music one day, and Christian or classical or EDM another day. Every time I change it, all I see suggested is music from the last genre I listened to. It’s like the app thinks I only want to hear what I last chose, instead of seeing that I like ALL kinds of music. I do like the Soundtracks and Discovery Mixes, except that I have never liked pop music, save for a song or artist every once in a great while, and yet it always seems to infiltrate my listening. If I don’t search or listen to Billie Eilish or Post Malone, please stop pushing it on me.
Frequent errors, freezes, and car mode
by Bentley_J on 2021/02/23 00:11
If I was listening to a station, close the app, and then open the app and tapped on that station in my recently listened to music, it throws an error every single time. Literally every. Single. Time. I have uninstalled the app, I have signed in and signed out, I can’t get it to ever do that. It is really annoying to open the Music app and want to resume the same station I was previously listening to you without being able to do so. Please fix this error. Many times when the music app is still in my phones cache, when I try to listen to music in the car it just swirls on the play button, but no music ever starts playing. It does this on five bars of LTE. It is not the service. I have to force close the app, re-open it, Now when I get in my vehicle driving mode pops up in the app. Is there really no way to disable this? I have searched through all of the help functions and I do not find a way to disable this. It is actually more distracting than just letting me use the app like normal when I get into the car.

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.
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).
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Daily app for my daily jams. Better than other streaming services.
by ethasp on 2019/03/15 03:49
Downloaded anything I wanted with no issues. Being able to download music makes it great for not using data when out and about. Ive downloaded over 12 GBs of music on my phone and the sound quality is great, and in many cases, much better than streaming services. The UI could use a little work and I wish my offline playlists could be copied to an online playlist. That way I could use the playlists I normally use easier with our fire stick or Alexa. Occasionally, licensing expires for music and it can become unavailable. It doesn’t matter how popular of a song it is, it can happen. Maybe a warning could help this be less of a surprise or maybe it could let you know when or if that music becomes available again...
Frustrating
by TheRealCombat on 2019/10/01 15:37
As long as you are in a good service area it’s fine. However, the second it has a network connection issue it just gives up and stops playing music. Even if the song is already fully buffered! This is really annoying when driving through rural areas. It will randomly quit playing and pop up a modal window saying there was a network connection issue and to retry again later with a stronger connection. It does this when I have service and I can even watch the buffer continue to load in the background. Pressing play does not resume playing at this point, instead you have to skip the song to get it going again. When I’m working on a project in my shop I’m at the limit of my home WiFi. My phone will bounce around between LTE and WiFi. It seems to cause this app to just randomly stop playing. It doesn’t display a message saying why, it just stops playing. It’s always right after I get my hands dirty and don’t want to touch my phone. I mean, come on... 😕
LOVE THIS!
by Rooster-817 on 2020/03/01 03:55
I’ve been skeptical about all the different ways to spend my money online and through social media. I’ve had more negative experiences than positive ones. Negative: my grandchildren moved 250 miles away from me. Positive: last weekend was the most enjoyable trip I’ve ever had to Oklahoma City because I was able to choose the songs, CDs, and or artists of my preference. Albert Einstein‘s time space continuum went out the window and I traveled from Fort Worth to Oklahoma City in about 30 minutes. I really can’t tell you how any other music platform compares because this is the first one I’ve tried but I sure do like it. Update: One year later & Im canceling satellite radio... This is all I need... Bummer, driving through he mountains caused lost signal with AT&T; one point for sat radio, but not Amazon’s fault. Have since learned off line mode... 5 Stars.
Unlimited too expensive
by BlueTrap28 on 2018/12/23 21:09
I have had this app for a couple years now and I use it almost everyday. It has the songs I love and the layout of the entire thing is simple and easy to use. But the music unlimited is driving me crazy, I get it you want more of us to pay even more money to listen to more music I got the message. But it is really messed up when you take away our songs. What I mean by that is one time I was listening to Get free by Major Lazor for a couple months and one day it wouldn’t let me play it anymore, it’s been moved to unlimited. This wouldn’t be huge except for how expensive unlimited is ON TOP of my $130 Prime membership. Last I checked, it was all or nothing, only two people in my family use prime music so I don’t need any more than 2 users but it’s nothing or whole family for almost $20/mo with taxes. I’m just not having it. I’ve cancelled my auto renewal for prime and I just refuse to give them another $1 at this point.
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.
Good but needs a few tweaks
by dweeb!! on 2020/10/20 18:52
In general, I like the app. I agree with a lot of people that complain about the music you have to pay for. It is annoying. But I don’t find too many songs that I’m looking to play fall in that category. What does annoying me is… When I am playing a playlist that is random play, I can’t see what songs are coming up. Even though it’s one of my playlist, I want to see the sequence from the random. I would like to be able to do that and maybe rearrange them a little. There is no sorting of songs that you put in playlists. The only way you can view the songs in a playlist is sequentially in the order you put them in there. There needs to be a way of rearranging them by artist or album or something. After I put a couple hundred songs in a playlist I want to see what’s missing and it’s hard to do when there’s no sorting available.
pretty good but could use improvement
by rachel is the best at bedwars on 2020/05/17 22:47
i love how most of the songs are available for me to use without paying for unlimited (i am both unwilling and unable to) but i have a few complaints. 1) moving songs in a playlist is hard. whenever you add a new song it goes all the way to the bottom and the only way you can rearrange things is remove them and add them back in the order you want 2) one song i had on the playlist (let’s call it A and the artist is B) when i searched for A, i could see it was by B and even when i saw it in the album i could see B’s name. but when i put that specific song (A) in my playlist, i could not see that the song was by B. it said “unknown artist” but it’s clearly known because it shows it elsewhere 3) sometimes the audio goes out, but it might be due to other reasons (my headphones, my family screaming in the background, or my internet connection). i think it’s mostly due to those reasons and not the app. however, when i leave the app for too long, the song that hadn’t finished starts over. 4) some songs on one album have lyrics shown, and others on the same album don’t?? why is that, why can’t y’all be consistent? not that big of a deal though otherwise it’s a pretty great app and i love listening to my favorite artists there without having to pay for everything
Alright, removes music and really makes you want unlimited
by TelMinz on 2019/02/17 03:35
The song selection is pretty good with out paying the premium for unlimited. If your just looking for an app to just play random music, there’s probably better options out there. I wouldn’t know. I’ve never tried them really. The only thing I don’t like. This app has a habit of removing music that’s is in your library. Royalties change all the time, I get it, but you can sometimes search for the song the next week and it’s available again, usually never again tho. Upgrade to prime if you love music tho, worth it imo. Every song *almost*. Obscure tracks that release on underground/bootleg don’t usually show up. But other than that I’ve had pretty good luck. I’ll give more feedback after I’ve used unlimited for several months+. I had prime only for years and just got unlimited. Enjoying it so far.
3 star app Begs for a 5 star review
by A3A2A4 on 2020/01/02 14:39
Overall, the app is okay. I can find most music I want. But it is hard work to use. You can't add songs from one playlist to another. if you have it in offline mode and no internet connection, it still has a pop up that tells you to go into your WiFi settings and turn it on, which is annoying. It's difficult to delete music from your phone, you have to delete each individual song, there isn't select option to delete multiple songs. It's tricky to understand exactly what is offline and online. And even if a song is offline and down a loaded, if it is on a playlist that isn't flagged as "offline" it won't play. If you download a pre organized playlist, you can't edit or add new music, you have to add the playlist to the queue, add songs, save it as a new playlist which can crash the app. So while it's functional, it's not the most convenient.
Good music with a lot of choices
by Yovdakeeya on 2020/02/03 23:02
I really like Prime Music. They have lots of choices including many full albums. However, there are 2 downfalls: 1. The music stops if more than one device is playing. It didn’t do this before and it’s very frustrating. 2. They are obnoxiously persistent in trying to push their more expensive unlimited version. Often they will obstruct the ability to go directly to Prime Music—instead, making you opt out of the higher cost unlimited version. Several times, when I opted out of the unlimited, instead of directing me to Prime Music it would just take me back to the previous screen. I’ve been a Prime member for several years and it started doing this a few months ago. Prime Music is not a free service. There is a monthly fee. For that reason alone, they should make it easy to use and not try to force you to use the more expensive version.
