How to Save Your Tunes From Amazon Music Storage Before They Disappear
Amazon is ending support for its Music Storage service , which allowed paid subscribers to download and listen to up to 250,000 of its own songs. The service will close for good in January 2019, but you must release your music before you forget the deadline and lose access to your personal library.
Amazon Music Storage allowed 250 songs to be downloaded for free, and users paying $ 24.99 a year could download 250,000 songs. On December 18, free users were unable to download new music, and paid users can continue to download music until their subscription expires. If you forget to renew your subscription, you will not be able to restart your paid subscription and will only be able to access 250 songs and the rest of your library will be removed courtesy of Amazon. Hit them before hitting and export them first.
Get your music from the cloud
To relieve Amazon of the music storage burden you pay for, export your music before the 2019 deadline (or your subscription expires). Download the Amazon Music app to your computer, select your name in the upper right corner, click Settings and choose iTunes or Windows Media Player to export. Don’t see an option for iTunes? Open iTunes, go to Settings> Advanced, and select the Share iTunes library XML file with other applications checkbox.
Google Play Music is a worthy stopover
Google Play Music supports users to download up to 50,000 songs for free. It may be less than the 250,000 songs you’ve uploaded to Amazon, but if you have jams that you can’t live without (or can’t find on any streaming service), feel free to download them using the Google Music Manager app . … …
