Steam Deck is the best newcomer and handheld of the future. Compared to the Nintendo Switch, Steam Deck is best for all Steam fans to play a wide variety of PC games. With your Steam Deck, you can not only play PC games or steam cloud-based games, but also listen to some best music services such as Spotify and even Amazon Music at no cost.

Thanks to the Desktop Mode, the non-steam applications work fine for you to access the service you want on your Deck. If you wish to access your Amazon Music library on the Deck, we'd like to show you how easy it is to do so in 2023.
