Amazon shutting its Music Storage Service

Recently got this email:

"Amazon Music is retiring the Music Storage service, which allows customers to upload and store up to 250 songs in a personal cloud library. Our records indicate you have uploaded one or more songs through your Amazon account in the past.

To keep, download, and play your uploaded songs at no extra cost, simply open a web browser, go to your Music Settings and click the “Keep my songs” button to direct us to save your music to the cloud. Otherwise your uploaded songs will be removed from your library on April 30, 2018.

Your Amazon Music digital purchases will continue to remain securely stored for playback and download -- no further action is required to retain those. These changes will not impact your ability to stream Prime Music or Amazon Music Unlimited."

I was using it as a place to backup music, though it had become increasingly difficult to upload more music thanks to Amazon's terrible Music App. Have a lot of this backupped on Google Music. 


  • I had uploaded 70K songs or more (Everything from the heydays of AmieStreet and Guvera). Seems like offline storage is still the best. I have a couple of big harddrives and a serious stack of burned DVDs of data. 

    I am currently at 73698 in an iTunes match account (about 628 GB according to iTunes). I would like to think Apple will keep that service going, but who knows what will happen with everyone going to streaming.
