In the last few years’ people started to rely on music apps to listen to their favorite songs. Amazon joined this race early but has never been one of the prime contenders, always being in the shadow of iTunes and Spotify.
Now a new update is out, entitled 5.0, which adds some great new features. One of them is the ability to download your music directly to the SD card, an appealing feature for low end users which don’t have much internal memory on their devices and applications rarely access external storage. It now also takes commands from your Android Wear, previously users could only use the default buttons on their phone to control the music functions. Amazon Premium users also got updates for them, as there’s now three new functions in the Prime Music area, detailed information on artist-specific profile pages, a “Popular” tab for rising songs and artists, and a “New to Prime” tab for all the stuff you no longer have to pay to access.
The Amazon Music App is free to use and this update won’t change that. A standard user (non-Prime) can buy individual songs or albums and can store up to 250 songs on the app’s cloud. The update already started to be rolled out and will be a silent update, meaning the user won’t have to download anything themselves, the application will update itself once the update reaches it.
