How to Break Device Limitation of Amazon Music

Learn how to play Amazon Music on multiple devices when not subscribe and enjoy music freely.

“I want to share Amazon Prime Music with my family, but it seems that Prime Account can only have one device playing at one time. How can I break that device limitation of playing music on more than one device?”


Amazon Music ranks the third-largest service of streaming music worldwide, subordinate to Spotify Music and Apple Music. It has around 55 million users in total. Many people have ever subscribed to Amazon Music Prime or Unlimited Service and highly recommended their service. But compared to the two companies occupying a bigger market share, what exactly are the benefits of Amazon Music?

As defined by its official website, “Amazon Music is a streaming service included with your Prime membership at no extra charge. For Prime members, it features 2 million songs — including thousands of stations and top playlists — plus millions of podcast episodes. What's more, you can listen offline and with unlimited skips.” Sound attractive, right? With such a large database of around 75 million songs, plus Amazon Music offers Ultra HD/HD music to its users, this streaming music service indeed is cost-effective and worthy to a degree.

However, the shortages with Amazon Music are also quite apparent. The app provides a free downloading service, or more clearly and unambiguously, cache storing service, to its subscribers. The songs/podcasts/albums you downloaded in the Amazon Music app cannot be accessed or transferred to other players or devices. Then all of them will be gone if you don’t renew the subscription one day. So you won’t be able to transfer downloaded Amazon Music to other devices and share any of them with your family or friends.

Besides, you are restricted to using your own Amazon Music account on other devices even if you have paid for it. You can log in to your account on ten devices and if you subscribe to the Unlimited Family Plan, and you can stream Amazon Music up to 6 devices at one time. For Prime users, you can only stream Amazon Music on one device at one time. Many people don’t understand this limitation and deem it improper and inconvenient, however, it seems that users have to be subject to it. Is that so? Can we skip that limitation?

Actually, breaking the device limitation of Amazon Music is something that can be achievable and easy. For those who have a big family or work as professional DJs, they often have to confront this kind of restriction to get better music experience. How do they do that? After reading this article, you can know the true secret of their method. Usually, there will be two methods for you to break such limitations.



Method One: Deauthorize the Unnecessary Devices

Under the regulation of Amazon Music, you can have up to 10 devices authorized to your account, and as they specifically mentioned: "Each device can only be authorized to one account at a time. Any device you download music to requires authorization. You can stream and purchase Amazon Music in a browser without authorizing the device. All mobile and tablet devices require authorization."

Authorized Amazon Music devices can be easily removed from your account using a web browser. You can go to Your Amazon Music Settings to access Manage Your Devices and achieve that operation. But please note that when you deauthorize a device, it takes 30 days for that space to become available.

A similar theory can be applied to the streaming limitation, but it would not be pleasant that you have to quit playing music on one device for doing the same thing on another one, right? The passage below will show us the method to stream Amazon Music on multiple devices at one time, please be patient.

Method One is one of the usual ways to deal with the restriction, but it’s not recommended if you have a large family or multiple devices. Music should be better enjoyed to adorn your better life! So please check out Method Two to see if it is what you need!
