How to Upload iTunes Music to the Amazon Music Cloud Service

If you find this useful please share it!


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.

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.

  1. In the past, this process always worked. However, Amazon has eliminated the “Upload” option and now has only a “Download” option. Any thoughts on that?
    Thank you very much.

  2. YES, thanks — this is very helpful and good to know. Amazon has so-called help that describes the process of uploading music when it knows it doesn’t exist and there is no option in their “music” app that they recommend downloading.

    Thanks Amazon. You’re so helpful at helping me spend my money and NOT updating your help documentation.

  3. Since the “Amazon Uploader” has been folded into the “My Music Library” software I and everyone else cannot upload their own music. Amazon has known of this issue for over a year and could care less. When they had the separate uploader, this service was amazing now it’s useless. if you haven’t started with Amazon, don’t do it now. For those of us who are there we are stuck but you don’t have to be.

  4. There is no “Upload Music to Cloud Library” option in File. The option is “Import Music to CLoud Library”.

  5. I tried this but couldn’t select anything in the iTunes folder, it is all greyed-out. any advice?

    Thank you

  6. I’ve tried these steps but the Itunes music folder you show is empty, I believe al my albums are locked in the Itunes library file…any advice?

  7. Even when I follow these steps, the music does not start uploading in Amazon Music. Instead, I get a message that says “No songs were added to your upload queue.” I’ve even confirmed that they are the correct file type.

  8. Please clarify, does this make a copy of the music from iTunes library or remove the file(s) from iTunes?

    1. Ed. note: On our test system it left a copy in iTunes, however as always, you should back up iTunes before doing anything new with it.
