We’ve talked in the past about the Amazon Music service (also called Amazon Prime Music), and we’ve raved about the Amazon Echo, through which you can stream your Amazon music cloud library, but Amazon has changed how you upload music to the Amazon Music cloud service, so here’s how to upload iTunes music to Amazon Music.
First, and foremost, Amazon has changed how you upload music at all to the Amazon Music service. You now have to download and install the Amazon Music app on your PC or Mac.
After you install the Amazon Music app, run the app, and sign in to your Amazon account through the app.

Log in to the Amazon Music App
You’ll see a few infoscreens once you sign in – don’t let those distract you.
What you want is the File menu, at the top.
Now here’s the thing: uploading music from iTunes to Amazon is so simple, that it’s confusing. What we mean by that is that people look for an iTunes option, or even an “export music from iTunes” option, thinking that they will have to export their music from iTunes first in order to import it to Amazon Music.
But you don’t have to do anything like that. Here’s what you do have to do:
Click on “Upload Music to Cloud Library”, which will give you the upload screen.
Click on “select folder” (you can also select individual music files, if you want to, but to import a lot of music from iTunes to Amazon Music, it’s easiest to select folders).
Navigate to your iTunes folder. Your iTunes folder is in your Music folder.
All of your iTunes music is in the iTunes Music folder hierarchy.
Just select the music that you want to upload, and click on “Open”, and the Amazon Music app will automatically start uploading the iTunes music you have selected to your Amazon Music cloud library.
Once the upload is complete, the app will let you know, and you’re done!
