How to share a playlist on Alexa

In order to share a playlist on Alexa, you will need to use the Amazon Alexa voice assistant. You can do this by saying “Alexa, open Spotify” or “Alexa, turn on the lights.” Once Alexa is open, you can say “Share my current playlist” and then provide the name of the playlist that you would like to share. After that, your friends will be able to access your playlist by using their own Amazon Alexa devices.

If, for some reason, you are having trouble sharing your playlist with others, don’t worry–the feature should be available again in the near future. In the meantime, feel free to post links to your playlists on other sites such as Spotify and YouTube. We hope that this guide was helpful!

How to play a playlist on Alexa

Now that you know a little more about Alexa let’s get started on how to play music from a playlist.

The first thing you’ll need is the name of the playlist that you want to play. You can find this by looking in the Spotify app on your phone or computer. Once you have the name of the playlist, open up the Amazon Music app and sign in with your account information.

Once you’re signed in, tap on the “Menu” icon in the top left corner and select “Your Library.” From here, scroll down until you see “Playlists” and then select the one that you want to play.

Next, open up Alexa by saying “Alexa,” followed by “Open Amazon Music.” This will take you to the main screen where it says “Now Playing.” In order for Alexa Cast to work, there needs to be an Echo speaker connected to your WiFi network that’s turned on and within range. If everything is set up correctly, you should see a small blue icon in the bottom right corner of this screen next to the word “Casting.” Tap on this icon and then select which Echo speaker(s) you want to use for playback.

If you want to listen to the playlist on another device, you can do so by opening up the Amazon Music app and selecting “Play.” This will give you a list of devices that are currently connected to your account. From here, select the one that you want to use, and it will start playing automatically.

If you’re not in the same room as your Echo speaker or don’t want to use your voice for playback control, there are a few other ways that you can manage playback. One way is by using the Alexa app on your phone. Open up the app and tap on the three lines in the top left corner. From here, select “Settings” and then “Music & Media.” Under “Device Playback,” make sure that “Alexa Cast” is turned on, and then scroll down until you see “Playlists.” Tap on this section and then choose which playlist you want to play.

You can also control playback from within the Spotify app. Tap on the menu icon in the top left corner and select “Your Library.” Next, swipe over until you see “Playlists” and then select one of them. Finally, press play!

How to add music to Alexa

Adding music to Alexa is a breeze! All you need is an Amazon account and some music files. If you want to add songs that are playing on your Echo, say, “Alexa, add this song to my playlists.” You can also use the voice commands: “add this song,” “add these songs,” or “add album.”

If you’re listening to music on your computer, open Amazon Music and select a song or album. Then, drag the songs you want to add to a playlist. To make Alexa shuffle music, add that playlist to the Shuffle button.

To make sure all songs are shuffled on Amazon Music, go into settings and turn on the Shake feature. On your iPad, open the Apple Music app & select a song or album to start shuffling songs within that album. You can also set your playlist to shuffle or repeat by using the remote control supplied with #TITLE#.

Adding music from other sources such as Spotify is just as easy–just link your accounts in Settings and then tap the Shuffle button next to any of the services listed. Now you can listen whichever way you prefer!

Can Alexa shuffle a playlist as an alarm?

Yes, you can now ask Alexa to shuffle a playlist as your alarm. This means that you can wake up to a different song every day or even every week. You can also choose to have the same song play every day if you so desire. Keep in mind that this only works for music alarms and not regular alarms.

To get started, open the Alexa app on your phone or tablet and go to Settings. Under Devices Tab, Echo & Alexa (top left), select Your Echo device. From there, find Sounds and then “Alarms, Timers, and Notifications.” Under Music Alarm Volume, you will see an option for Shuffle Playlist As Alarm. Toggle it on and then specify which playlist you want to use.

You can also set a music alarm by saying, “Alexa, wake me up to music.” This will allow you to choose any song from your library or one of Amazon’s Prime Music selections.
