If you’re using the Amazon Music app on your computer, you may have noticed a setting called Exclusive Mode. It appears as an option when you select which set of speakers you want the music to play from. What does Exclusive Mode do? Wonder no more.
Amazon Music Exclusive Mode
Amazon’s Exclusive Mode is actually a very neat feature that I haven’t seen in other streaming music apps. Basically, it devotes the selected speaker exclusively to the sound from Amazon Music, cutting out all other computer sounds.
That means that your music playback won’t be interrupted by the notification chirps that alert you to new emails or even those annoying autoplaying video ads that many web pages include (any auto-playing ads that might appear on this website are Oscar-winning productions and should be watched intently).
You can switch on Exclusive Mode by clicking on the little speaker icon in the bottom right of the Amazon Music window, selecting your chosen playback source (ie. a set of Bluetooth speakers) and then clicking the little Exclusive Mode slider, as shown below.
Now you can listen to David Bowie without any ch, ch, ch, chimes.
