- Go to the playback page for that song and click [...] in the lower right corner of the screen.
- On the options screen that appears next, if you want to switch to normal playback mode, find the second button and tap it. When the button turns from blue to white, Amazon Music's shuffle playback will switch off.
- Additionally, if you want to repeat playback of all songs in the pre-list, tap the first repeat button below the text that looks like "Other options" and convert it from a white button to a blue button to turn on all songs repeat mode.

Even if you have joined Amazon Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited, there are cases when you cannot use shuffle/repeat! We explain that specific case below.
When listening to a station such as "My Likes and More" on Amazon Music, its playback page also does not have shuffle and repeat options. The feature automatically keeps playing similar songs like radio background music, and you can listen to music there that you didn't listen to before but might like, rather than a specific pre-list.
Therefore, when listening to an Amazon Music station, it is not possible to skip songs, including shuffle/repeat.
When listening to a station, you cannot use shuffle/repeat.
When playing a song similar to a song on Amazon Music, you cannot shuffle/repeat the song. The mechanism for playing and listening to similar songs is almost the same as playing Amazon Music stations. It will automatically continue to play similar songs like radio background music, so you cannot shuffle/repeat a song instead of a specific pre-list. However, you can skip to the next song if you don't like it.
Amazon Music offers a wide variety of podcasts, and you can enjoy podcasts in many different categories, such as English conversation, history, newspaper, movie reviews, and more. Additionally, podcasts are free to listen to even if you are not an Amazon Music member.
However, when playing podcasts, shuffle playback and repeat playback features are not yet offered. You can select your favorite episodes to play on demand.
Case 4. If you do not subscribe to Amazon Prime Music or Amazon Music Unlimited, you cannot play the pre-list.
If you do not join Amazon Prime Music or Amazon Music Unlimited, you will not be able to listen to most of the pre-lists and albums on your phone or computer. Its rival, Spotify, allows you to listen to most music for free, especially for free members, with no shuffle limitations when listening to music on your computer.
However, unless you subscribe to an Amazon membership, you cannot use Amazon Music to listen to playlists, and features such as shuffle play and repeat are limited.
