If you already have an Amazon Prime membership, you can already access ad-free music on Amazon Music Prime without any extra cost! All you need to do is sign in with your Amazon Prime account information to enjoy.
However, if you do not have Amazon Prime and want to enjoy ad-free Amazon Music, you have to sign up for the Amazon Music Unlimited service and pay $9.99 each month.
If you do not have an Amazon Prime membership or subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited for a monthly fee, then you are simply using Amazon Music, which will always have ads.
Of course, that also means that you are receiving a free service, so for some, the ads may be worth saving the monthly subscription payment.
Why Does Amazon Music Have Ads?
Amazon Music only has ads when you don’t pay for an upgraded service.
A common problem users encounter is that when they sign up for Amazon Music, they do not use their Amazon Prime membership information and, therefore, only receive the free music streaming option that certainly does have ads.
If you are paying for Amazon Prime, you need to sign into your Amazon Music with that information to access ad-free Amazon Music Prime.
If you have Amazon Prime, you can enjoy ad-free music on Amazon Music, but there is a catch: You can only use Amazon Music Prime on one device.
So, if you have several family members or friends signed into the same Amazon Prime account on the Amazon Music app, only one of the devices will not have ads throughout; all the others will.
In order to allow several devices to access ad-free music on Amazon Music, you will need to purchase a separate subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan. With this additional membership, you pay $14.99 per month to use on up to six devices.
Realistically, you should never get ads on Amazon Music Unlimited. The only reason you could be hearing ads is if you opted for the single-device plan and are trying to use the service on several different devices.
If you want to ensure several different devices are enjoying the perks of Amazon Music Unlimited, you should follow the steps listed above to update your current plan to the Family Plan which allows for up to six devices.
There is also a chance that your subscription has not been paid or needs updating. In this case, you will also need to log in and head over to the Settings menu, select Change Your Subscription, and find out where the problem is.
The only way to get rid of ads on Amazon Music is to opt for Amazon Music Prime by signing up for an Amazon Prime membership or paying a monthly fee for Amazon Music Unlimited. These two services are ad-free, whereas the free Apple Music account will have ads.
