How to Cancel Your Amazon Music Subscription
While not the best, Amazon Music is a great music streaming service with an expansive music library. But like all unused or unwanted memberships, consider canceling your Amazon Music subscription if you don’t use the service much.
If you’re using Amazon Music Unlimited through your Amazon Prime membership, the process is a bit different than having a standalone subscription. As a Prime user, you’ll have to cancel your Amazon Prime subscription. For standalone Amazon Music subscribers, go through this guide to know when you should cancel the subscription, how to cancel it, and how to transfer your playlists and library.
What Happens When You Cancel Amazon Music Subscription
When your Amazon Music subscription is canceled, you lose all the associated perks, including the ability to stream music in high quality or without ads.
Perhaps the most annoying thing about not having a membership is that you can’t select any song to play, as playback is limited to only shuffle. However, you can still play any music of your choice using an Alexa Echo and set it as your Alexa alarm as well.
Besides this, you’ll also lose access to all the downloaded songs, playlists, and purchased music. The titles added to your Amazon Music Unlimted Library will be grayed out, and you won’t get the playback options.
However, that doesn’t mean saying goodbye to your favorite songs. Transfer your Amazon Music library to any other music streaming platform to continue to enjoy the artists you like.
How to Export Your Amazon Music Library to Another Platform
There are a plethora of apps and services out there that let you export your Amazon Music library from one platform to another. For this guide, we have used TuneMyMusic.
- Launch TuneMyMusic on a web browser.
- Press the Let’s start button.
- Select Amazon Music as the source platform.
- Select all the playlists that you want to transfer and press the Choose Destination button.
- Pick the destination platform from the list that you want to export your music to.
- Hit the Start Transfer button.
After the transfer is done, you should see all the transferred songs and the missing ones. If some of your songs didn’t move to the other music streaming service, chances are that they aren’t available on that platform.
How to Cancel Amazon Music Membership on Android and iPhone
Now that you’ve moved your Amazon Music library to another platform, it’s time to get rid of your membership.
- Launch the Amazon Music app on your phone and head to Settings.
- Find the Subscription Renewal section under Amazon Music Unlimited.
- Press the Cancel subscription button.

Depending on your plan and billing cycle, it will show you how long you can still use the service before the subscription expires. After that date, your membership perks will end.
How to Cancel Amazon Music Membership From the Web
