When it comes to streaming music space, you have many choices, including Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, etc. Among them, Amazon Music impressed us a lot with its varied prices, substantial library, and high-resolution audio. It's compatible with multiple devices, like Amazon Echo, Fire TV, Tap, and Alexa-powered products, but not iPod.
Actually, only purchased Amazon Music digital songs can be downloaded and transferred to iPod via iTunes for streaming. Tracks from Amazon Music Unlimited and Prime Music can not be played on iPod directly. In other words, we can not play any Amazon Music songs on iPod, unless paying for each album. It sucks, right? Fret not, below we will show you how to play purchased Amazon Music on iPod. And what's more, you will also get a new efficient workaround -- convert Amazon Music Unlimited & Prime Music to plain music format for playing on iPod without any limits.
If you are going to play purchased songs or albums on iPod, you can download those tracks on your computer and transfer them to iPod via iTunes by following these steps:
Step 1 Open the iTunes app and select "Add File to Library" from the menu.
Step 2 Browse to the file or location of your downloaded Amazon Music.
Step 3 Select each track you want to add and confirm.
Step 4 Connect your iPod to the computer and click the "Music" icon on iTunes.
Step 5 Check "Sync Music" and select to transfer the "Selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres".
Step 6 Click the "Apply" button to start transferring music from computer to iPod.
Now, you can play the purchased digital songs from Amazon Music to your iPod easily.
