7 steps to change Amazon Music account on Alexa
#1: Launch Alexa
First, open the Amazon Alexa app on your phone.
Then from its homepage…
#2 Navigate to “More”
Look for the icon with 3 lines. Then click it to see more preferences.
This can be found at the bottom right corner of your screen.
#3: Click “Settings”
After selecting “More,” a menu will show up.
The app will display a list of preferences. But among them, find and tap “Settings.”
#4: Select “Device Settings”

So pick the one where you want to change your Amazon Music account.
Next, scroll down through the settings until you see the “Registered To.”
Tap “Deregister” to unlink the current Amazon Music account linked to the device.
Note: If you’re using a computer, the steps are quite similar. But instead of the Alexa app, go to Amazon.com and log in to your current account. Go to “Settings” and click “Deregister” to unlink your Amazon Music.
#6: Login with your new Amazon Music account
Once you’re done removing your account, you’re now able to register a new one to your device.

Can Alexa play different Amazon Music accounts?
Alexa can play different Amazon Music accounts. If you want, there’s a feature named ‘Amazon Household.’ And this allows more than 1 account on 1 Alexa device.
“How many accounts does it allow?”
According to Amazon, you can link up to:
- 4 children.
- 4 teens (ages 13 to 17).
- 2 adults (ages 18 and up).
The adult profiles can manage the other accounts. So they could set certain restrictions for the teens and children.
They’re also permitted to access many digital contents. Say, audiobooks, games, and apps.
This includes Amazon Music too. As well as Free Prime Video and Twitch Prime.
While teens can also stream and make a purchase on Amazon. But still, they’re under the supervision of the adult accounts.
Whereas children profiles can’t shop and buy on Amazon. And some Prime content can’t be shared with them as well.
How to create an Amazon Household?
If you want to make one yourself, follow these easy steps:
- Click this link to go to the Amazon Household page.
- Sign-in to your account.
- If you want to add an “Adult,” “Teen,” or a “Child,” select the corresponding button.
- Enter the name and email address of the account you want to add in the household.
For children’s accounts, you need to make their profiles by yourself. While you only need to invite a teen to join the Amazon Household.
So, ask the person who you want to invite if they already have an Amazon account. Then an email will be sent to them – asking for their permission.
How can I change Amazon Music accounts?
You can easily shift to different profiles by saying, “Alexa, switch accounts.”
But if you’re confused about which profile you’re using right now, try this.
Say, “Alexa, identify account.”
Then your device will let you know which account you’re currently on.
Pretty neat, right?

How do I remove an account in Amazon Household?
It’s possible to unlink an account in the household. And this can be done by doing the following:

Step 2: Navigate to “Manage your Household.”
You’ll be taken to a page where you’ll see all the profiles in your Amazon Household.
These can be found on the left side of the site.
Step 3: Click “Leave” or “Remove”
Amazon will give you 2 options.
If you want to leave the household, select “Leave.”
But if you wish to remove a profile (whether an adult, teen, or child), simply click “Remove.”
Note: If an adult account was unlinked, it’ll take up to 6 months before he or she can join the household again.
However, if you want to completely remove Amazon Music from your device…
