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.
[UPDATE: As of 2019, the Amazon Music app no longer has an upload option. Our research has found that the most viable way to transfer your iTunes music to Amazon is by using the MusConv app, which is available for both Mac and PC. According to the MusConv site, once having downloaded the app, the steps are these:
“1. Open iTunes
2. Make sure you have Apple Music enabled and are logged in correctly to your account.
3. Go to File > Library > Export Library and then save it to XML file.
iTunes will take a few moments to save the songs and a new XML file with your songs will be created.
4. Now go to iTunes, select iTunes and choose saved XML file. Then select destination service as Amazon Music. Press “Transfer”.
Enjoy your music in the new player!”

After you install the Amazon Music app, run the app, and sign in to your Amazon account through the app.

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.
