When Shuffle and Repeat Are Not Available on Amazon Music

There are also cases when you're subscribed to Amazon Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited but fail to use the shuffle and repeat features. Below are those specific scenarios.

Scenario 1: When Listening to Stations, Shuffle and Repeat Are Unavailable

When you listen to stations such as "My Likes and More" on Amazon Music, you won't find the shuffle and repeat options on its playback page. This is because stations are designed to play a continuous stream of similar songs, much like a radio station, and are not a specific playlist but rather a discovery of music you may not normally listen to.

As such, you can't skip songs, including those you want to shuffle or repeat, when listening to an Amazon Music station.

Scenario 2: When Playing Similar Songs, Shuffle and Repeat Are Unavailable

You also won't be able to shuffle or repeat when you're playing similar songs from a particular track on Amazon Music. The mechanism of playing similar songs is almost the same as that of Amazon Music stations. It plays a continuous stream of similar songs, much like a radio station, and is not a specific playlist, so you can't shuffle or repeat. You can, however, skip to the next track if you don't like a particular song.

Scenario 3: When Listening to Podcasts, Shuffle and Repeat Are Unavailable

Amazon Music offers a wide variety of podcasts, ranging from topics like English learning, history, news, and movie reviews, among many others. What's more, you can listen to podcasts even if you're not a subscriber to Amazon Music, all for free.

However, shuffle and repeat playback features are not yet available when playing podcasts. You can listen on-demand by choosing the episode you desire.

Scenario 4: When Not Subscribed to Amazon Prime Music or Amazon Music Unlimited, Playing Playlists Is Restricted

Without a subscription to Amazon Prime Music or Amazon Music Unlimited, you won't be able to play most playlists and albums, whether on your mobile phone or on your desktop. In contrast, its competitor, Spotify, lets you listen to most of their music for free, especially on desktop, even for free members, and there are no restrictions on playback such as shuffling.

However, you need to subscribe to Amazon membership otherwise you won't be able to listen to playlists, play them in shuffle or repeat tracks with Amazon Music.
