listen to Amazon Music on demand

For a long time, Amazon Music's shuffle mode was one of the most popular features on all Amazon Music's platforms. However, in late 2022, Amazon Music forced Prime members to shuffle similar songs, but Prime members can get the full Amazon Music catalog.

So now, both Apple Music Unlimited and Prime users can access up to 100 million songs on Amazon Music's official and partner apps. However, it's shocking that Amazon Music won't allow Prime customers to listen to the music they want - now Amazon Prime customers can only shuffle contents on Amazon Music, which is frustrating.

If you are using Unlimited, you might also find your listening experience is messed up with issues like Amazon Music not downloading. So how can you listen to Amazon Music on demand once again, and no longer experience download issues? Is it best to turn off the shuffle mode that's not working? No, but you'll get the best solutions in this post to get rid of shuffle mode.

Part 1. Amazon Music - Unexpected Changes

Since the expansion of the Amazon Music catalog for Prime, both Prime and Unlimited subscribers have been shuffling from this unexpected change because there're more serious issues with the user experience.

For Prime:

Prime members will find the items, such as an artist, album or playlist on-demand are on the shuffle play with skip limits. This means you can play the music on demand. And every time you try to skip to the next song, you'll get a "reminder" that this feature is unlocked with Music Unlimited.

If you are using the Amazon Music app, you can pick and play any song on-demand from a selection of All-Access Playlists that're curated based on your likes, listens and genre preferences. However, if you are using your Amazon echo device to play a selection of All-Access Playlists, you're still shuffling the music.

If you are satified with this change because you use your membership for background music or casual listening, you must know this comes with the download limits. And if you are using an echo device, such as Amazon's Alexa to play Amazon Music as background music, you might encoutered with issues like Amazon Music not working on Alexa. When you want to download songs, the offline listening is only available for All-Access Playlists.

For Unlimited:

Unlimited subscribers don't have to worry about the benefits you own, but there're some serious issues with the Amazon Music app, such as the Amazon Music not downloading. If you play Amazon Music on Android Auto in your car, issue like Amazon Music not working on Andorid Auto is also annoying.

What's more, if you choose to download Amazon Music Unlimited and All-Access playlist songs, the Amazon Music downloads are only accessible within the Amazon Music app. You're not allowed to take them to more places.
