Amazon Music recently made some changes to how the Amazon Music Prime subscription tier works. But people are not happy with the changes.
Amazon Music Prime previously offered an exclusive library of hit songs as a “free” add-on for Amazon Music Prime subscribers. You can upgrade to Amazon Music Unlimited for a discounted rate and get access to our entire music catalog. Amazon Prime subscribers now have access to a full catalog of music, albeit with a few caveats.
These warnings caused quite a stir online as people complained about the change.You can now only play music in shuffle mode. No more selecting individual songs. According to users, that also applies to paid music. “They claim it’s a bug, but the current app doesn’t let you select songs you paid for, or playlists made up of songs you paid for. Plays on shuffle with ‘similar artists’ added and lasts 1 hour Limited to 6 skips per edit Read the post about the problem.
“My complaint is that one morning last week I added similar songs from ‘Amazon Music Unlimited’ to all my playlists, including ones that only contain music purchased from Amazon.
“Previously, I would try to get Amazon Music to sign me up before the playlist started, but they wouldn’t force me to add other music to my list. I spoke to support and they said this is a new ‘advertisement’.” They said. I got so pissed off that I unregistered all my Amazon devices and gave them away. I wouldn’t spend any more money updating their devices if I couldn’t use them without their BS.
“My 40-song playlist is shuffled, but it repeats the same shuffle order no matter what. I only listen to it in the morning when I’m getting ready for the day. We stayed with the song,” another commented after the change.
