Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Can I Pause My Amazon Music Account Rather than Canceling it?
So far, there’s no way to do this.
You can cancel your Amazon Prime subscription and still be able to use it until your payment date according to your subscription.
However, when it comes to the 90-day trial period, you cannot use the rest of your days of the trial if you cancel it.
Why Am I Still Getting Emails from Amazon Music Even Though I’ve Unsubscribed?
Sometimes, this may happen even though you’ve uninstalled and unsubscribed from Amazon Music.
In order to stop these emails, just open up the email and look for the “Unsubscribe” option.
This option is typically located at the bottom of the email in fine letters.
Why is Amazon Music Still Occupying Disk Space Even Though I’ve Uninstalled it?
Sometimes, when you uninstall tools or software, some of their documents or preference files can be left behind on your computer.
To remove these files, you can go to the temporary folder by searching for “%temp%” and deleting all of the files within.
You should also check if Amazon Music is still present in your Recycle Bin or Trash folder. If that is the case, simply delete it from there.
Is Spotify Better than Amazon Music?
While both of them are music streaming services, their business and customer model tends to differ a lot.
For example, Amazon Music has many more subscription options and you can buy digital copies of albums and songs on Amazon Music.
On the other hand, with Spotify, you get unlimited access to all of the songs available in its database with just your subscription. However, you technically don’t “own” any of the songs or albums within it.
