Even if you already own an Amazon smart speaker at home, you may not know all of these useful things that you can ask Alexa. Here are some easy music commands for Amazon Alexa.
- “Alexa, play The Weeknd.” You can use Alexa to tell your Echo to play your purchased music or playlist mixes from Amazon Prime.
- “Alexa, play 100.3 FM.” The Echo can play audio streams from radio stations around the world.
- “Alexa, play classic rock from Pandora.” You can ask Alexa to play any genre of music from multiple music services, including Pandora and Spotify.
- “Alexa, play 1950s Christmas music.” Amazon Prime subscribers can get very specific with their playlist requests.
- “Alexa, play 1950s Christmas music in the Kitchen.” You can control the audio on different Alexa units or compatible speaker systems like Sonos throughout your home.
- “Alexa, play music similar to Adele.” Tired of listening to the same artist’s music over and over again? Ask Alexa to play music similar to your favorite artist and Alexa will create a similar variety mix for you.
- “Alexa, play music similar to Adele from Pandora.” If you just ask Alexa to play music, you might get a request to pay for a subscription to Amazon Music Prime. This is unnecessary. Both Spotify and Pandora are free. Just tell Alexa specifically to play your music from different service.
- “Alexa, play music similar to the song “House Of Cards” by Radiohead from Pandora.” Once you get the hang of it, you can start to string together commands.
- “Alexa, volume 10.” To turn up or down the volume, just say “Alexa” and then volume 1 to 10.
- “Alexa set the volume to 7.” This is another way to control the volume.
- “Alexa, skip song.” As long you are aren’t listening to a live stream, you can skip a song.
- “Alexa, pause the music.” You don’t need to stop the music if your jam gets interrupted. Just ask Alexa to pause it.
- “Alexa, like song.” Liking songs that Alexa plays will help the artificial intelligence play more songs that you like in the future.
- “Alexa, Wikipedia: Pearl Jam.” Alexa will give you a brief bio on any band or artist.
- “Alexa, play the podcast Follow The Truth.” Alexa can play any podcast published in Apple Podcasts or the Google Play Store. Just make sure to refer to the podcast by its exact name.
