It's no doubt that PS4 is one of the most popular game consoles. For those people who like to play games in home, PS4 allows them to choose and play various awesome games on a big screen. PS4 also comes with wonderful HDR technology and powerful entertainment ability. Besides playing games, you can also enjoy movies, TV shows and streaming video services from YouTube, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, etc. As to music, you can play songs from external USB flash drive or enjoy Spotify songs. Currently, Spotify is the only streaming music service available on PS4.
Some Amazon users may feel strange as Amazon Prime Video is already on PS4, but Amazon Music service is not. If you have subscribed Amazon Music Prime or Amazon Music Unlimited, you will find there is no special Amazon Music app designed for PS4. However, it doesn't mean that it's impossible to enjoy Amazon Music on PS4. In fact, there are two easy and effective ways to help you enjoy Amazon Music on PS4.
You can use PS4 web player to access Amazon Music web player and play the Amazon Music songs directly. And the other way to enjoy Amazon Music on PS4 is to use AudGeek AmaziTune Converter to convert Amazon Music songs to MP3/M4A/FLAC, then copy the songs to USB flash drive and play the songs with PS4 Media Player. In this article, we will introduce the details of the 2 ways.
Currently there are several video streaming services including YouTube, Amazon Prime video, etc. which are available on PS4. As to streaming music service, the only option you can use is Spotify. So you can't download and install Amazon Music on PS4, thus you can not enjoy Amazon Music songs on PS4 directly.
