One of the great things about Amazon Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited is the ability to download music to your smartphone or tablet for offline listening. That means downloading your favorite tunes so you can listen to them without having an internet connection and without using your mobile data.
This is especially handy on long car trips or even commuting to work or school. Plus, you can take great songs with you to the pool, beach, office, gym, or where ever else you go.
