First, open the Alexa app on your smartphone and go to Settings > Music & Podcasts.

From there, scroll down and select Spotify from the list of available providers.

If this is your first time using Spotify with Alexa, you will be prompted to link your account. After doing so, you can close out of this screen.

Next, wake up your Echo device by saying “Alexa.” You should then hear the voice response, “What can I help you with?” At this point, say “Music,” followed by the name of an artist or song for playback.

You can also ask Alexa to play music at a specific time in the morning by saying something like, “Wake me up at 6:45 am.”

How to connect Spotify to Alexa

You need to first link your Spotify account to use Spotify with Alexa. You can do this on either the iPhone app or the Android app.

Once you have enabled the device and logged into your Spotify account, you’ll be able to choose Spotify as an option from the “More” menu in the Alexa app.

Spotify is supported on various devices that use the Alexa virtual assistant, including Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, Amazon Echo Spot, Amazon Tap, and all Sonos players.

Tapping the “More” button will present you with settings for Music & Podcasts in Alexa preferences. You must agree with all permissions settings before continuing.

Now that your Spotify account is linked to Alexa, you can use various phrases to control playback. For example: “Play The Crow by DJ Food on Spotify.”

You can also connect Spotify to Alexa using an Amazon Music skill. Just click a few buttons, and you’re good to go!

How to enable Spotify on Alexa

How to play Spotify music on Alexa

Spotify and Alexa have become two of the most popular music streaming services. While they offer a great listening experience, it can be challenging to keep track of what’s playing on each device. This article will show you how to play Spotify music on Alexa and how to sync your devices so that your app appears as “currently playing” in other apps.

First, make sure that both devices are connected to the same WiFi network. You can do this by opening the Settings menu on your phone or computer and selecting the appropriate network. Once connected, open the Spotify app and select Menu > Settings > Show Advanced Settings. Under “Playback,” change “Device” from “Automatic” to “Phone.” This will ensure that all audio playback comes from your phone instead of your Echo device.

Now open the Amazon Alexa app and select Menu > Music & Books > Your Library. Under “Settings & Devices,” select “Spotify.” Make sure that the toggle button is turned green and press Save. When you ask Alexa to play music, she will automatically use Spotify as her source instead of TuneIn Radio or Pandora.

If you want to pause the song on Amazon Alexa, you will have to do it from your phone. To change the theme, you will also have to go back and forth between your phone and Alexa. However, if you want to resume playing where you left off, say, “Alexa, play Spotify.” Your app should appear as “currently playing” in other apps once connected to the service.

Finally, if you want to see a list of songs, playlists, albums, or genres from Spotify, you can use the “Show me” commands. For example, say, “Alexa, show me rock music.” You will then see a list of related songs and artists that you can stream on Amazon Alexa.

How to make Spotify the default music player on Alexa

To make Spotify the default music player on Alexa, you’ll need to set up a skill. This can be done in just a few minutes by following these simple steps:

1) Open the Amazon Alexa app on your phone or tablet

2) Tap the menu button in the top-left corner of the screen (it looks like three horizontal lines)

3) Scroll down and tap “Settings.”

4) Under “Account Settings,” you’ll find an option called “Default Services” – tap this, and then tick Spotify instead of Amazon Music

5) You’re all done! When you say things like “Alexa, play my favorite songs,” they’ll automatically start playing on your Spotify account.

How to sync Spotify and Alexa

Now that you know more about Amazon Alexa and Spotify let’s sync the two together! First, open up the Spotify app on your phone and search for “Alexa” in the top right corner of the screen. This will take you to a page to see all of your connected devices. Select the device you want to use as your primary music player-for example, if you’re using an Echo Dot, select Echo Dot.

Next, open up the Alexa app on your smartphone and go to Settings>Music & Podcasts>Link New Service. Tap on Spotify from the list of available services and agree to all permissions settings. You may be asked to sign in to your Spotify account again; this is normal. After following these steps, both apps should be linked and ready to use!

You can now say things like “Alexa, play The Crow by DJ Food on Spotify” or “Play ambient music on Spotify.” Try out some different phrases and see which ones work best for you!
