If you are an Amazon Prime member, then there are many features you will get for free. First of all, you will get access to millions of songs with no annoying ads. Second, you can download the music for free and listen offline, and lastly, listen to songs in high quality.

Other than that, the UI of the app is clean and looks modern, but the design of the music player is quite basic and doesn’t look that appealing. Still, it’s not that big deal. On the other hand, on your Home tab, you will find plenty of playlists that are personalized based on your context and location.

There is also Alexa built-in through which you can give commands like play music, play the next song, and many more within the Amazon Music app.
