Default [Q] Amazon music

I noticed last night that Amazon added music to the menu. So now I have my entire Cloud music library available on my Fire TV. I was thrilled at first until I discovered voice search doesn't work and neither did keyboard search. All I can do is scroll through my music by category. My library contains about 200 Gb of music. This is a very cumbersome and disappointing process.

Has anyone discovered a search method for music that escapes me?

Voice search works for me. It often shows video results first, but there is always a music tab on the search page that brings up my Amazon Cloud music. Perhaps it just needs a bit of time to index all your music.

Where are you seeing Prime Music? I don't have it on mine. I did have the update block on but I turned it off & checked for updates but got none...

There is no Prime Music. Only Amazon Music. Once you get the 51.1.1.0 update, it adds a "music" menu to the home screen. In the music menu, you will see songs you've purchased from Amazon and songs you've uploaded to your Cloud Drive. It does not show anything from Prime Music yet. That is coming later this year.
