The iPod has been a go-to for Apple fans who love music on the move, but many users are left wondering if they can also access Amazon Music on their portable players.
The good news is yes, there are certain iPod models compatible with Amazon Music. You can download the iPod-integrated Amazon Music app to stream music songs directly. And if your iPod is incompatible, never mind, this article will show you the workaround and alternatives.
iPod comes with different models like the iPod touch, iPod shuffle, iPod nano, and iPod classic. However, when it comes to downloading applications, only iPods equipped with iPodOS (iOS 14.0 or later) support this feature. That's limited to specific generations— the 5th, 6th, and 7th generation iPod Touch.
In other words, only iPod touch from the 5th to the 7th generation is compatible with Amazon Music app. For the other iPod models, unfortunately, Amazon Music is not supported.
Step 1 Go to App Store from the home screen, and search for "Amazon Music".
Step 2 Once you find the Amazon Music app, tap "Download" or "Get" to download the app.
Step 3 After installation, open it and log into your Amazon Music account. Then, just start to play your favorite music song.
For those unable to use the Amazon Music app on iPod devices, a recommended solution is to convert Amazon Music songs to MP3 and then sync them to your iPod music player. This approach is feasible across all iPod series.
