Amazon Music is a music streaming service provided by Amazon, boasting a collection of over 100 million songs, which allows you to listen to a vast catalog of tracks, albums, podcasts, and playlists on a variety of devices.

Besides just listening, Amazon Music also lets you savor your favorite tracks in lossless audio quality or high-quality MP3 format, and its extensive music library spans across genres, catering to a wide array of musical tastes, from pop and rock anthems to classical compositions and jazz melodies.

One of the tools that lets you seamlessly enjoy your listening experience is the shuffle feature. But what if you want to turn it off? We're about to find out how to do that both on the desktop and mobile apps of Amazon Music.

Can you turn off shuffle on Amazon Music?

Shuffle on Amazon Music, or any music streaming platform, such as Spotify or Apple Music, is a feature that randomizes the order in which songs in a playlist, album, or queue are played. When you enable shuffle, the music player will select and play songs in a random order, so you won't hear them in the sequence they appear on the album or playlist.

And yes, you can turn it off, but only if you have an Amazon Music Unlimited premium tier. If you are a premium subscriber, you can play any music on demand in the queue, repeat or shuffle mode, as well as turn the shuffle mode off.

How to turn off shuffle on Amazon Music

The first step is to upgrade your subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited, which costs $10.99/month if you're not an Amazon Prime member and $9.99/month if you are.

💡FYI: What's the difference between Amazon Music Unlimited & Amazon Prime Music?

Amazon Prime members receive access to a selection of music through Amazon Prime Music as part of their Prime subscription, but it has a more limited library compared to Amazon Music Unlimited.

Amazon Prime Music is included as part of an Amazon Prime membership. If you have an active Amazon Prime subscription, you get access to Prime Music at no additional cost.
