Amazon Music to end support for streaming your uploaded MP3s

Amazon Music to end support for streaming your uploaded MP3s

New subscriptions will be accepted until January 15, 2018.

While you remain a paid member, you retain the ability to upload music and renew your subscription.

The integration of Amazon's music services with Audi's MMI infotainment system and its MMI Connect app will give drivers of 2017 and future 2018 models of the Audi A3, A4, Q7, R8 and TT models the ability to blast out their Amazon Music playlists through their car's speakers without needing to worry about fiddly smartphone syncing or other distracting processes.

Note: These changes only impact music you've imported.

After upgrading, your Amazon Music storage subscription automatically renews on the last day of your annual billing cycle, if auto-renew is set to "On". Uploading music is no longer possible as of December 18.

Music that is already uploaded can be played and downloaded until January 2019. With Amazon Music one of the new focus points is letting subscribers of the service utilize their voice and an Amazon Alexa-enabled device like any of the available Echo speakers to find popular music that's now being listened to by locals of various locations. Naturally, if that plan expires, you won't be able to reactivate it. You can still upload 50,000 songs to Google Play Music for free, (or twice as many songs if you use a Samsung Galaxy S8), though honestly who does that anymore? In addition, if you don't necessarily want to hear more music like the song that's now playing it's possible to instead ask Alexa to play more songs that are similar to one that you specifically had in mind. Subscriptions cost $24.99 a year. For information on downloading your music, see Downloading Your Music. The upload functionality is removed at that point, and access to songs is reduced to 250 (the free song limit).
