Amazon Music has expanded to 100 million songs for Amazon Music Prime users recently. Owning to this new update, you may be thrilled to explore all genres of music abounding in this large music library. However, according to most Amazon Music Prime members, they are not appreciated for this. Instead, they wrote down tons of negative comments about this new feature. Because Amazon Music Prime is featured Shuffle-Only whilst this music library is expanded. Amazon Prime members are calling for "Please reconsider this new shuffle-only feature".

When will Amazon Music concede? In this fight, we are not sure how long it will last. But the only thing we assure is that we are not hampered by this new update, and a better solution jumps out to ultimately get rid of the shuffle-only mode thereafter.

Turn Off Shuffle Mode with Amazon Music Prime

☑ Part 1: Can I Turn Off Shuffle-Only Mode for Amazon Music Prime?

Recently, Amazon Music has re-defined the privileges of Amazon Music subscriptions. What is the new update of Amazon Music? How does it affect you? We outline two significant changes here:

1. Over 100 million songs and new podcast episodes are accessible to Amazon Music Prime users.

2. The updated song library can only be heard in Shuffle on Amazon Music for Prime users.

Here, we've also listed more details below to differentiate the key features of the new update between Amazon Music Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited.

Amazon Prime:

● All the music is ad-free.
● The most ad-free top podcasts
● All-Access Playlists – pick and play any song on-demand, with no skip limits, or download them to listen offline.
Shuffle play any artist, album, or playlist
● No access to HD/Ultra HD music.

Amazon Unlimited:

● Pick and play any song, ad-free
● The most ad-free top podcasts
● Personalized Stations and thousands of playlists
● SD, HD, Ultra HD, and Spatial Audio
● Listen offline
● Unlimited skips
● Available for HD/Ultra HD music. (Note: Amazon Music Unlimited Single-Device Plan doesn’t have access to HD, Ultra HD, or Spatial Audio.)

As one of the Amazon Music Prime subscribers, suddenly, the playlist you worked hard to create henceforth can not be played in an orderly sequence. Have you been annoyed? Can you turn off the "shuffle-only" feature on Amazon Music?

Yes, you can turn off the shuffle mode as long as you upgrade to an Unlimited plan. For Amazon Prime users, to upgrade to Amazon Unlimited, there will be a discount. Amazon Music Unlimited costs $8.99 per month for Prime members or $9.99 per month for non-members.

Amazon Music schemes this new plan for luring Amazon music Prime users to upgrade to Amazon Music Unlimited. If you persist in using Amazon Music with a Prime account but are sick of the "Shuffle-only" feature, you should turn to another solution to resolve this problem and ultimately escape from the shuffle mode. Let's stop talking in a roundabout way. In the next part, we are about to get to the perfect solution.
