  3. Enter or select your subscription payment method and billing information.
  4. Review your subscription details, then select Confirm.

Subscriptions charge to your payment method on the scheduled renewal date.

Note: You can start an Amazon Music Unlimited for Echo subscription by voice directly on your Alexa device. Just say "Sign up for Amazon Music Unlimited."

Start a Subscription from the Amazon Music App

You can also start an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription through the Amazon Music app on the following devices:

  • Android
  • iOS
  • PC or Mac computer
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Fire TV Stick

On iOS devices, you can sign up for the Amazon Music Unlimited Individual plan through the Amazon Music app, using your iTunes account. You can also sign up for a variety of other plans using your Amazon account information, via your device's mobile web browser at Get Amazon Music Unlimited.

Subscription sign up is not available any Amazon Music devices not listed above.

Look for a Go Unlimited, Join Now, or Start a Free Trial option within the app to get started. Then follow the on-screen instructions to select your preferred plan and subscription payment method.

Tip: When you sign up through the Amazon Music app for Fire TV devices, your 1-Click payment method is automatically selected. However, you can change your payment method from Your Amazon Music Settings. To learn more, go to Manage Your Amazon Music Unlimited Subscription.

Start an Amazon Music Unlimited for Students subscription

If you’re currently a student and can verify enrollment in a degree-granting college or university, you can sign up for Amazon Music Unlimited for Students on the website at Amazon Music Unlimited for Students , or through the Amazon Music app on your Android device, PC or Mac computer, or Fire tablet.

As part of the subscription process, you are asked to provide verification of enrollment. Verification is confirmed with a third-party vendor, SheerID. If your student status can’t be automatically verified, you’ll be asked to upload documentation. Please provide one of the following:

  • Official Enrollment Letter from your academic institution (acceptance letters will not be approved)
  • Class schedule for the current academic term
  • Registration receipt or tuition receipt
  • Transcript that shows classes currently in progress
  • Other school issued document that displays your first/last name, an issue date from the current term or within the last three months

If your school is not covered by SheerID, you can request to add your school here:

Free Trial Eligibility

If you're eligible, you'll see an option to Start a Free Trial of the Amazon Music Unlimited plan.

Note: When you start a free trial, we contact your bank for a $1 purchase authorization to verify your selected subscription payment method. This charge should be removed within 72 hours.

You have full access to Amazon Music Unlimited on all of your registered devices until the trial end date. On the end date for your trial, your subscription payment method will be automatically charged at the monthly rate.

If you don't want to be automatically charged, you can select the Do not continue after trial option for your subscription before the trial end date. To learn more, go to Manage Your Amazon Music Unlimited Subscription.

If you're an eligible Prime member, you can also choose to have your trial enroll into the annual plan. See the "Discounted Pricing for Prime Members" section below for more information.

If you start a trial with your voice on your Alexa device, we automatically upgrade you to the Amazon Music Unlimited plan during the free trial period. At the end of this period, the trial automatically enrolls into the Amazon Music Unlimited for Echo plan. If you prefer to continue listening on all of your devices, you can subscribe to the Amazon Music Unlimited plan.

You can view and manage your trial and subscription details from Your Amazon Music Settings.

Discounted Pricing for Prime Members

You don't need a Prime membership to join Amazon Music Unlimited. However, discounted monthly subscription pricing and an annual renewal option are available exclusively to Prime members.

Note: Amazon Music Unlimited Family plans are not eligible for discounted monthly subscription fees due to Prime membership, but are eligible for the annual renewal option.

Eligible Prime membership types include:

  • Paid Prime memberships (monthly and annual)
  • Prime free trial memberships
  • Prime Student (Prime Student doesn't provide an additional discount on Amazon Music for Students)
  • Household members with shared Prime benefits

If you're an eligible Prime member, you'll automatically see discounted pricing for Amazon Music Unlimited during subscription sign up, if it's available.


  • If you're an eligible Prime member, make sure you're signed in to the Amazon account associated with your Prime membership when starting your Amazon Music Unlimited subscription—otherwise, you won't see the Prime member pricing and renewal options.
  • Discounted monthly and annual subscription pricing is available to you as long as you're a Prime member. If you no longer have an eligible Prime membership, Amazon Music Unlimited charges to you at the non-discounted monthly rate.
