Hey
I have left deezer after 7 years as Amazon have now offered HD 3D music for free, so I got the Family acount.

Anyway, in deezer you can change how your music list is viewed, like by artist, date added or alphabetical order.

I have tried on the App and on the PC and still cant figure out how to do it.

Surely Amazon are not that dumb to forget something so basic?

Me and my kids all used these functions in Deezer, but it seems Amazon will not allow you to search for your own songs, or even how they are viewed.

Thanks all

I’m a Music Unlimited subscriber. If you select Library and then select Artists, it will list your music by artist in alphabetical order. The same with songs, albums, podcasts and playlists.

There’s a Recents section where the most recent songs that have been downloaded are listed but there doesn’t seem to be a facility to list all your music by ‘date added‘ after a period of time.

OK that seems to be a bit better, I have just looked and thank you.

Its a shame that when you are in your playlist folder, for example:

Simon's Music
You cannot list that playlist in any time of order, you cant change it to artists, or date added or aphabetical

Yeah, it may be because it’s an Amazon service its options have been kept deliberately more basic than the specialist music services.

I came to the conclusion that they wanted you to use Alexa than rather use the app to play music.

I bought a Echo Auto which I was going to return as it sucked with Deezer, so I am glad I kept it now.

I have slowly gotten my head around it.

I suupose its the same with all new apps, you just have to get used to it.

Thanks so much for your advice about the artists, that really helped.
