How to Play Amazon Music on Apple Watch

Q: "Can you play Amazon Music on Apple Watch directly? Pressing the Music Player button on the watch just starts the Apple Music. If I want to play Amazon Music when biking, I have to get the phone out of my backpack and open the Amazon Music app to start the music. Then I have to put the phone back and control it via my watch. This is really cumbersome. Is there any way to play Amazon Music on Apple Watch 4? Thanks for any ideas."

But it doesn't mean there is no workaround to improve the user experience. In this article, I would like to show you a barely known method to listen to Amazon Music on Apple Watch.
