By Roger Kelly Updated on 2023-07-26 / Update for Amazon Music Tips

Amazon Music had claimed that the cloud 'Music Locker' service to upload your own music to Amazon Music was shut down and that Amazon Music's storage service will remove MP3 files from your Amazon Music Cloud library. Some users are confused about this news since they tend to import their personal music to Amazon Music via its native Amazon Music importer software. Thus, they hope to find an alternative way to resume the transfer.

If you are one of them, please look no further than this post. We will introduce several ways that can help you upload music to the Amazon Music app or player from both computers and mobile devices. Without ado, let's get started now!

Part 1. Can You Upload Music to Amazon Music

Yes, you can! On the condition that you attempt to put several local music audio files into Amazon Music, you can make it by changing some settings on Amazon Music. However, the local files are required to be compatible with Amazon Music such as MP3, FLAC, WAV, AAC, AIFF, etc. And before that, you need to convert protected tracks from other music services to unprotected files with a professional tool. That is what we will talk about in the next part. Let's have a look together!

Part 2. How to Upload Music to Amazon Music Library

Although the native Amazon Music importer app was shut down, Amazon Music provides its users a channel to upload local audio files that are stored in Windows Media Player, iTunes, or local drive on their computers to the app. But before that, please get help from an expert music downloader to download and convert songs from Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, etc. as Amazon Music-supported formats.
