Manual or auto update, you still get the same version now.
Manually downloaded.

Signing up to HD and relogin all it took for this to show up

BTW, it does not seem like actually functioning as bit rate shown on DAC is still what selected in Sounds in Control Panel, saving these setting between restart doesn't seem to work either.

EDIT: All it does at the moment is disables in app volume control. Guess still WIP, at least some movement in the right direction.

Where are you finding this screen? I've looked in Preferences and Account Settings in the app and don't see it.

On the right side next to the Volume Icon

Me too. Maybe with my old age I hear things differently but I think the quality of sound in HD and UHD is very good. I'll just wait and enjoy it until they get all the bugs worked out for exclusive mode.

Agreed on the sound except for lack of exclusive mode. I'm hoping that will stop the occasional interference I get from using Windows' sound mixer.

I have a trial with Amazon that is about to expire. I'm probably sticking with Tidal anyway, but I do want to at least try out the exclusive mode. However, my client isn't updating to the 2198 build. Went through some of the client logs and there is actually a separate updater application that runs each time you start the desktop app.

The command line options that are used are actually logged in this log:
%localappdata%\Amazon Music\Logs\AmazonMusic.log

Can some who has successfully updated open that log and look for this entry and post it here?
Code:
200423:025421      Browser INFO in UpdateInstaller line 434, function Morpho::UpdateInstaller::runAutoUpdater : Successfully launched autoUpdater--check_for_updates,1,--mode,unattended,--unattendedmodebehavior,download,--unattendedmodeui,none,--url,https://www.amazon.com/gp/dmusic/cloud/mp3/update.xml?platformOverride=NATIVE_WIN_7_PLUS,--update_download_location,C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Amazon Music\Updater,--version_id,710012195,--debuglevel,4

I assume the clients that update go to a different URL so maybe I can get this thing updated if I know what that URL is.

I doubt you are going to be able to force an update. If you read back, it seems Amazon is updating on a rolling basis. You will get it when you get it.

I ditched Tidal in favor of Amazon HD. Higher rez files and $7 a month less.

At the end of the day, the updated version of the application still needs to be downloaded and installed by Windows. I had an old version of the app so I installed it and watched the logs. It goes through an update check process by checking a json online and then lists the download URL in the logs:

Code:
200423:035327 MorphoBrowser : I main : JsConsole : line = 106153 : Comment In Log:     UpdateManager: Starting to poll for updates
200423:035327     Renderer INFO in UpdaterProxy line 61, function Morpho::UpdaterProxy::getUpdaterPath : Morpho updater staging area path: C:\Users\James\AppData\Local\Amazon Music\Updater\Updater.exe

200423:035327 MorphoBrowser : I main : JsConsole : line = 106153 : Comment In Log:     UpdateManager: confirmVersion: retrievedVersionSpec: {
      "WebLabs": {},
      "Native": {
       "version": "7.10.1.2195",
       "url": "https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/digital/music/morpho/installers/20200326/05022608d8/AmazonMusicInstaller.exe"
      },
      "version": 7230,
      "FeaturesAvailable": {
       "SHOW_PRIME_UX_ID": true
      },
      "Webapp": {
       "buildHash": "20170418/2017492076",
       "version": "5.4.2.632"
      }
     }

Once you get the prompt in the app that an update is available, you can go check the log and the download URL for the new version will be listed. For example, the 2195 installer is at the URL above.
