Amazon MP3 App for Android with Cloud Player
The Amazon MP3 app for Android lets you shop for music on the go, and access and manage your music using Amazon Cloud Player.
Installing the Amazon Cloud Player App for Android
The Amazon MP3 app for Android is compatible with Android devices running OS 2.0 and higher, with screen resolutions that are larger than QVGA. You have three options to install the Amazon MP3 app for Android:
If the Amazon MP3 app for Android was factory installed, your existing app will be replaced with the newest version.
Note: Amazon MP3 Store purchases may only be made by UK customers via Amazon.co.uk. To be sure that the Amazon MP3 app for Android shows the UK Store, be sure that you set English (UK) as your device language through the device's settings.
Amazon Cloud Player allows access from up to ten authorised devices. This includes mobile devices and different computers. If you try to access your music files using Amazon Cloud Player from more than ten authorised devices, you'll see a message indicating you need to manage your authorised devices. You can still access your music using Amazon Cloud Player through the ten devices you've previously used.
To manage device authorisations, visit the Amazon MP3 Settings page. Deauthorised devices will be removed from the Your Authorised Devices list in 30 days.
Setting Up Your Amazon Account & Payment Method

If your device is enabled for 1-Click purchasing in our Amazon MP3 Store, and it's lost or stolen, contact us as soon as possible. We'll need to disassociate the device from your Amazon.co.uk account to ensure no further purchases can be completed from the Amazon MP3 store on your device.
Note: If you are having issues signing in, please try updating to the latest version on the Amazon Appstore or the Google Play Store. The latest version is version 2.8.
You can sign out at any time by tapping Menu, Settings, then Sign out.
Finding and Purchasing Amazon MP3s
Shopping for Music
You can shop for music by tapping the Store link from the app's home screen or in the upper navigation bar. If you don't see a Store and Player link, you have an older version of the application and we recommend that you upgrade.

The search bar can be found by tapping the search button on your device, tapping Menu and then Search, or going to the Amazon MP3 Store home screen and using the search bar at the top. Results will be returned for artists, albums, and tracks that match the query.

Purchasing MP3 Music
Shop the Amazon MP3 Store's catalogue of over 20 million tracks and more than a million albums when you're on the go using the Amazon MP3 App for Android. The Amazon MP3 Store on Android features the same everyday low prices and special deals that are available on the Amazon MP3 website. The music you buy is saved to Cloud Player and can be downloaded directly to your compatible device.
To buy music:
The Amazon MP3 team is constantly working to offer you the greatest selection of music available, and our ability to offer music to you in MP3 format is limited by the rights granted to us by the record companies. Currently, not all record companies grant us a license to sell their music for download in the MP3 format free of digital rights management software. You may find tracks or albums available in the CD format that aren't available in the Amazon MP3 Store.
You may also find that not all tracks on an album are available to purchase individually. This may be at the request of the artist or due to other contractual reasons with the record labels. We promise to work our hardest to offer you a complete selection of DRM-free music downloads.
Supported file types
The Amazon MP3 Store delivers 256kbps MP3 files. Where possible, we use variable bit rate to optimise the quality and size of music files. Our MP3 format is the most widely compatible music file format and is supported by most media player applications, hand-held music devices, and some CD and DVD players. For more detailed information, please see our Media Formats help page.
Amazon Cloud Player and the Amazon MP3 Downloader support either .mp3 or iTunes .m4p files (Non-DRM AAC files).
