Following the launch of Amazon’s new streaming music service on the web last night, Amazon has now updated its iOS app with the feature, which also gets renamed from Amazon Cloud Player to the much more suitable Amazon Music. Also along for the ride is an updated icon and revamped design for the app. 

The updated app, now called Amazon Music, serves the same purpose of offering downloads or streaming of all music stored in your Amazon Cloud account, but it’s also getting a refreshed look that introduces easier navigation and the ability to manage and delete music from a library directly in the app. It’s not a total redesign, but you will notice an overall streamlined design that does away with some of the clutter from the previous version. In addition, the app now has access to the newly announced Amazon Prime streaming service:

New! Amazon Prime members now have free, unlimited access to over a million songs and hundreds of custom built playlists for ad-free streaming. Explore the Prime Music catalog, add music for free to your library, or download to your mobile device for offline listening.

The updated Amazon Music app, version 3.0, is available for free on the App Store now.
