Online music services making it possible to access your music library without Internet connectivity is definitely a highly convenient feature, especially in cases where accessing the Internet won’t be possible for a considerable amount of time, with traveling somewhere on a plane being a great example.
That being said, getting all of your favorite songs to be available offline can quickly cause them to take up a large amount of disk space on your device as your library grows and leave no room for any other applications that you may want to install, or photos that you plan on taking, which can eventually require you to do some clean up now and then.
Today, we will be talking about the process of removing the songs that you no longer require to have offline access to on Amazon Music, in particular, which will allow you to free up space on your device in a quick and easy way and make room for other things that require disk space.
So, how can you undownload the songs on Amazon Music that you have previously added for offline usage?
To undownload songs on Amazon Music, all you will need to do is to press the menu button (three dots) next to the songs you would like to remove from the device and click the “Remove From Device” option from the dropdown menu.
In the upcoming sections, we will discuss the process of undownloading songs on Amazon Music in more detail and go through a technique that allows you to remove downloaded songs on Amazon Music in bulk, which can become necessary if you have a large number of songs that you would like to get rid of.
How to Undownload Songs on Amazon Music?
While it’s not a task that you will need to perform too frequently, removing some songs that you have made offline available can eventually become necessary if you find your device to be completely out of disk space.
Below, you can find a step-by-step guide that will allow you to undownload songs on Amazon Music quickly and efficiently:
- Find the song you would like to remove from your device. As downloaded songs will have a checkmark icon next to the menu button, you can easily spot them by looking for the checkmark.
- Click the “three dots” button next to the song to bring up the context menu. You can find this button on the right side of the screen for each song entry.
- Click the “Remove From Device” option from the dropdown menu to remove the song. If the “Remove from Device” option does not show up despite the song having the checkmark icon, we recommend activating the Offline Music mode, which should solve the problem.
Upon successfully following the steps we have outlined above, the checkmark next to the song should be removed, and you should see the “Download” option instead of “Remove From Device” when you bring up the context menu again.
As removing the songs by using this method will only cause the data on your device to be deleted without your music library on Amazon Music being affected, the songs will still be a part of your playlists, and you will be able to listen to them as long as you have Internet connectivity, or re-download them later if you wish.
How to Bulk Remove Downloaded Songs on Amazon Music?
While the method we have mentioned above offers a straightforward way to undownload songs on Amazon Music, following it can become a bit of a chore if you have way too many songs that you would like to remove from your device.
Below, you can find the steps we recommend following if you would like to bulk-remove downloaded songs from Amazon Music instead of removing them one by one:
- Open the Amazon Music app on the device you want to bulk-delete songs.
- Press the menu button (three vertical dots) on the top-right corner of the screen.
- Press the Settings option on the menu that comes up.
- Scroll all the way down, and press the Sign Out button.
- Confirm the process by pressing the Sign Out button on the pop-up that appears, where you will see a message that states all the offline music will be deleted from the device.
Alternatively, if the Sign Out method does not work for any reason, you can also remove the Amazon Music application from your device and re-install it, which should erase the songs that are stored on your device in the process.
Finally, one last method you can employ to bulk remove the Amazon Music songs on your device is to clear the Amazon Music application data without removing the application itself, which should also cause the songs to be removed from your device.
As Amazon Music doesn’t offer a way to remove multiple songs at once selectively, in cases where you would like to keep some of the songs, the most convenient approach will be to bulk remove the songs by following the method we have shown above and re-downloading them afterward.
While having offline access to your entire Amazon Music library would be a fantastic experience, the fact that songs that are saved this way can take up a considerable amount of disk space, especially as the number grows, will usually require you to do some clean-up.
To summarize, undownloading the songs you have downloaded to your device with Amazon Music is possible by locating the songs that have a checkmark icon next to them (which indicates that they are available for offline usage), clicking the menu button next to them, and selecting the “Remove From Device” option from the dropdown menu.
On the other hand, for bulk removal of downloaded songs (which will delete all the Amazon Music songs on your device), our recommendations would be to either log out from the Amazon Music application, remove and re-install it, or clear the application data, as there is currently no way to delete multiple songs from the device selectively.
Mark’s first real encounter with tech was when he had to format his computer with Windows 98 around the age of 6 to quickly get back to playing Heroes of Might and Magic III without having to send the computer in for a repair, which he strangely found to be rather enjoyable since it was a new challenge for him at the time.
While he has always been particularly interested in the software side of things, which eventually led to him becoming a software developer, he enjoys keeping up with the advancements in consumer electronics and smart home technology when he’s not busy coding.
