#1. Link your Spotify account to Alexa in 1 min or less
Open your Alexa app > tap hamburger icon on top left > tap “Settings” > tap “Music” > tap “Spotify” > tap “Link Account” > follow instructions. While you're at it, set Spotify as the default music service so you can just say “Alexa, play Cardi B” (and leave out the "on Spotify" at the end).
#2. Blast Spotify playlists easily even if you don't remember how you named them
When you do remember, it’s as simple as “Alexa, play (insert playlist name) playlist.” What to do when you don’t? Create an Alexa routine that turns on the playlist whenever you say "Alexa, playlist."
Pro Tip: Do this for a few playlists so you can say "Alexa, relax playlist" or "Alexa, pump up playlist."
#3. Pick up where you left off
Just say “Alexa, play Spotify” to continue playing the artist, playlist or station you were last listening to. I listen to Spotify from my phone on my walk home, and I love that Alexa lets me seamlessly transition listening from my phone to my Echo speaker when I walk in the door. Try it out!
#4. Play music across all your Echo speakers
Just add “everywhere” to the end of your Alexa command like this: “Alexa, play Cardi B everywhere.” And—voila!—every room will now be immersed in sound.
#5. Easily control your music with simple Alexa commands
Turn the volume up or down, skip to the next song, go back, pause and stop. Try a few of these Alexa commands right now: “Alexa, skip song” or “Alexa, turn up the music” or “Alexa, pause.”
