Is the Amazon Music Unlimited cost worth it?

Amazon Music Unlimited definitely worth it if you are a Prime member, considering the price and annual discount. However, if you don’t have Amazon Prime, there seems many other good options. Like YouTube Premium, for $11.99/month you will get ad-free YouTube and YouTube Music, as well as the ability to download movies and music for offline playback. You no longer need free online or third party tools to download video or songs from YouTube.

If you don’t want to pay for music, Spotify free tier is a perfect choice. Amazon Music also has free tier but only offers limited catalog – Thousands of stations and top playlists.

Ultimately, the value of Amazon Music Unlimited depends on how much you enjoy and prioritize music streaming, the size and diversity of your music preferences, and your willingness to pay for an expanded music library and additional features. You can also consider trying out the service during any free trial periods to assess if it meets your expectations and complements your music listening habits.

How to download songs with Amazon Music Prime?

You are correct. One significant difference between Amazon Music Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited is the offline download feature. Only Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers have the ability to download songs, albums, and playlists for offline listening when there is no internet connection available.

With Amazon Music Unlimited, you can download your favorite songs or entire playlists to your device. This allows you to enjoy your music even in situations where you don’t have access to a stable internet connection, such as during flights, road trips, or areas with limited connectivity.

On the other hand, Amazon Music Prime, which is included with an Amazon Prime membership, does not provide the option to download music for offline playback. Prime Music allows streaming of songs and playlists online.

If offline listening and the convenience of having your music available without an internet connection are important to you, then Amazon Music Unlimited’s offline download feature may be worth considering. It offers the flexibility to enjoy your music library on the go, regardless of network availability.
