In the past any Amazon Prime member has access to Amazon Music Prime with 2 million of ad-free songs for on-demand streaming or offline playback. However, in Nov. 2022, Amazon expanded the catalog for Prime members from 2 million to over 100 million songs, but with more limits: no on-demand play and offline playback, except for some All-Access Playlists.

With the expanded song library, Prime members listening on Amazon Music will mostly be limited to shuffle-play mode, based on artist, album or playlist, whereas previously the 2 million songs were available to stream on-demand. Amazon noted that Prime users will be able to play songs on-demand via All-Access playlists, which are personalized based on their listening preferences, and can download them for offline listening. To get full on-demand access and offline listening, customers will need to pay extra for the Amazon Music Unlimited tier, which is currently $9.99/month for non-Prime members and $8.99/month with Prime. So many people complain this and ask how to turn off shuffle.
