Download Your Music to Your Mobile Device

You can download music to your device to listen to it without an active Wi-Fi or wireless connection.

To download music to your device:
  1. Open the Amazon Music app and find the music you want to download.
  2. Start the download:
    • Android devices: For albums, playlists, and songs tap the Menu (three vertically stacked dots) next to the song and then tap Download.
    • iOS devices: For albums and playlists, tap the title you want to download, and then tap the Download icon. For songs, either tap the three vertically stacked dots next to the song or More Options on the "Now Playing" screen, and then tap Download.

Music you've downloaded to your device is available in your library under Offline Library. You can also view a list of your active or recent music downloads:

  • Android devices: Open the Amazon Music menu (swipe from the left edge of your screen or tap the Menu button) and tap Active Downloads.
  • iOS devices: Open the Amazon Music menu (swipe from the left edge of your screen or tap the Menu button) and tap Recent Activity.

If you can't find a song or album you've downloaded, you may need to refresh the Amazon Music app and try again. Open the menu, tap Settings, and select the refresh option (Refresh Your Music Library for Android and Refresh Your Cloud library for iOS) at the top of the screen. Then try re-downloading the item using the steps outlined above.


  • To automatically download all Amazon Digital Music purchases to your device after purchase, open the menu, select Settings, and then tap the checkbox next to Automatic downloads for Android and Auto-download Amazon Music purchases for iOS.
  • Some record companies require us to insert identifiers in the metadata that accompanies music when you download it from the Digital Music Store or your music library. For more information, go to About Record Company Required Metadata.
