Mobile Apps

Learning how to cancel Amazon Music subscriptions can be a little complicated. Amazon Music is one of the biggest music streaming platforms and competes with the likes of Spotify and Tidal. You can get it for free with an Amazon Prime membership, but it’s tougher for those who get it as a standalone service as 2022 has seen a price increase for “Unlimited Music”. This increase saw single-device subscriptions charged $4.99 a month, while the unlimited individual plan costs $8.99. Whether you are canceling because of cost-cutting or just want to switch to another service, here is a quick guide on how to cancel Amazon Music subscriptions.

How to Cancel Amazon Music Subscriptions

Amazon Music vs Spotify: Which Is The Best Music Streaming Service?

As we said earlier, calling off your Amazon Music subscriptions is a bit hard because the process depends on how you get the service. Hence, the first thing you need to start the cancellation is to know where you are subscribed from. Those paying for their subscription via their Amazon account may cancel it directly through that platform. Meanwhile, those subscribed through iTunes or through their cellular network providers will have to cancel their subscription through those services instead.

Those who have decided on canceling their account should know that your account will continue to be billed until the end date. This also means that you will be able to access your Amazon Music Unlimited subscription’s features until that time. For those on Amazon Prime past the end date, advanced features like unlimited songs and playlists will be grayed out from your free account.

Amazon Music Alternatives

Now that you know how to cancel Amazon Music subscriptions — and probably canceled yours — let us talk about some alternatives. There are a lot of good music streaming services out there; and among these choices, Spotify and Apple Music are the standout. Here’s why you should consider switching to these services.

We have compared Spotify and Amazon Music, and the former is the winner. The juggernaut of online music streaming, Spotify ranks as the largest and most complete when it comes to music libraries. Looking at it clearly, the two are pretty similar, even with their subscription plans. The basic Spotify paid subscription is $9.99 a month for single plans, not a far cry when compared to Amazon Music’s costs. Aside from that, Spotify has a larger music library compared to Amazon Music.

If you want to completely cut off the bills without losing your music, Spotify is the one you should pick because of its ad-supported service. There are also a lot of ways to get Spotify Premium for free.

Another good Amazon Music alternative is Apple Music. While not as popular as Spotify, Apple Music has a sizable amount of patrons. While Apple Music does not have a free tier like Spotify or Amazon Music, it does offer only two subscription plans. The first is a $9.99 a month plan with offline modes and no ads. A second plan, meanwhile, is offered as a family package for $14.99 a month with six accounts. Aside from a similarly sized music library, Apple Music also lets music creators upload and curate their own music on the platform through Apple Music for Artists.
