Amazon Music Prime is adding a few new features to the list for its ‘free’ version for those who already pay for a Prime membership. Here’s the latest.
Amazon says it is adding more on-demand features to give listeners more control over their experience. In addition to listening to the entire 100 million+ track catalog in shuffle mode, Prime members can now create ‘All Access’ playlists. Create a playlist with your favorite songs and listen with unlimited skips and offline.
Users can also convert existing playlists into All-Access playlists. It needs to have at least fifteen songs with a maximum of 50 to be eligible. Here’s a quick guide on how to convert a playlist to All-Access for Prime members:
- Go to your playlists in your music library.
- Select the playlist you want as ‘All-Access’.
- Switch the ‘All-Access’ playlist toggle to ‘ON.’
Amazon says Prime members may only have one of their personal playlists designated as an All-Access at any given time. Amazon curates a selection of 15 other playlists with the ‘All-Access’ title that are matched to a user’s listening tastes and history. These playlists include ‘My Recent Plays,’ ‘My Frequent Plays,’ and ‘Trending For You.’
Amazon is also introducing a new All-Access playlist called ‘My Mix’ that refreshes daily, reflecting a user’s unique listening habits and preferences. Listening to at least 25 tracks on Amazon Music will unlock the ‘My Mix’ playlist for users to interact with. As they continue listening, this playlist will evolve with their listening history.
The company says it will also make a selection of new albums from top artists available on demand for a limited time. A new section titled ‘On-Demand Albums This Week’ includes the selection of artists’ albums that are free to listen to in the Amazon Music Prime app. It’s a great way for artists to get exposure to Amazon’s growing crowd of free listeners.
