I have an Amazon Echo Dot, and I’m really loving it. So far there are three things that Alexa has done to make my life easier:

1) She turns on the lights when she hears me coming home from work in a completely dark room; 2) She can turn off my Nest thermostat when I leave for vacation so nothing is heating or cooling (this includes turning down the heat if we don’t need 3) And she told me which song was playing on the radio.

So I asked her to play a specific song, and it did! So today I’m going to show you how easy it is for your to do.

What are the benefits of playing a specific song on Alexa?

When we ask Alexa to play a specific song, we’re not just asking her to queue it up like she would with a radio-like service. We’re actually telling her that we want to hear that exact song, from beginning to end. And if we don’t like it? No problem – Alexa will skip right past it and move on to the next one. Plus, if we give any of our songs a thumbs up or down rating, she’ll remember them and make sure not to play them again unless we ask her to. This makes for a more personal listening experience tailored specifically to our own individual tastes.

How can I play a specific song on Alexa using my voice?

There are a few ways to play specific songs on Alexa using your voice. You can either use an external app or Amazon’s built-in music services. External apps tend to be slower than Amazon’s music services, but they can still be controlled using voice commands. So if you have a favorite song that you want to listen to, check out the apps before downloading them to your device to make sure they’re compatible with your hardware and version of Alexa.

How to play a specific song on Alexa from my music library

If you want to play a specific song on Alexa, you need to add it to your music library. To do this, just say: “Alexa, add this song to my library.” Once the song is added, you can then say: “Alexa, play my music by” or “Alexa, play some from my library.”

How to play a specific song on Alexa from Amazon Music

If you want to play a specific song on Amazon Music, there are a few different ways to do it. You can either search for the song by title or artist, or you can use the Prime member exclusive service called Amazon Music Unlimited. With this service, you have access to over two million songs from both the US and UK.

To enable free ad-supported music in countries other than those mentioned above, just give Alexa the command “Alexa, play some music.” This will allow you to listen to stations based on artists, genres, or moods. You can also ask Alexa to play specific songs, albums, or playlists that you’ve created yourself.

If you want more options when it comes to listening to music on your Echo device, then you might want to consider subscribing to Amazon Music Unlimited. This streaming service plays over 75 million songs and has no ads. You get two options: the free plan which allows for one Echo device and up-to-ten hours of listening time per month; or the paid plans with ads for $0.99/month which has no ads; or the Individual Plan at $3.49/month which allows for up-to-six devices and does not have ads). If you only want one device for music, you can opt for the Single Device Plan at $7.99/month or cheaper individual plan at $1/month.

How to play a specific song on Alexa from Spotify

Now that you know a little more about Spotify, let’s learn how to play specific songs on Alexa. If you have an Amazon Echo device, FireTV, or are part of an Alexa multi-room music group through Spotify Connect, playing your favorite jams is easy.

First, open the Spotify app on your phone or computer and find the song you want to play. Once you’ve found it, click or tap on the three dots in the upper right corner of the song’s tile and select “Share.”

From there, choose “Amazon Echo” from the list of devices and select your preferred speaker. If you’re using an Echo device other than Echo Dot (2nd Generation), make sure it’s connected to Wi-Fi before continuing.

After selecting your speaker, type in the name of the artist or song you want to hear and hit enter. Your chosen track will start playing shortly afterwards!

How to play a specific song on Alexa from Pandora

If you want to play a specific song on Pandora, you can ask Alexa to do so. To start, enable the Pandora service on your Echo device by following these steps:

1) From the main menu on your Echo device, select “Settings” and then “Music & Media.”

2) Scroll down and tap “Link New Service.”

3) Tap “Pandora” and then follow the prompts to link your account.

4) Once you have linked your account, open the Pandora app on your phone or tablet and find the song you want to play.

5) Play the song and then press and hold the voice button on top of your Echo device.

6) Say “Alexa, resume playing music from Pandora.”

How to play a specific song on Alexa from iHeartRadio

Since Alexa is not available in the U.K., many people are unaware of how to play specific songs on Amazon’s voice assistant. In order to do this, we will need to use a service like iHeartRadio.

To get started, open up the Alexa app on your phone or computer and select “Settings” from the main menu. From there, scroll down and select “Music & Media.” Under “iHeartRadio,” toggle the switch to enable it and then input your login credentials. You can now ask Alexa to play any song that you want by saying something like “Alexa, play by from iHeartRadio.”

If you’re looking for a station with similar music to what you want, be prepared to pay for it–the other “free” services won’t have that exact song. TuneIn requires the radio station name, which is not provided on iHeartRadio. However, we can jump to a track number directly from TuneIn by saying something like “Alexa, play track number 5 from TuneIn.”

Lastly, if you want to play a track from an album by saying ” from the album,” Alexa will confirm that it is playing the song and provide you with the number of the track in order.

How to play a specific song on Alexa from TuneIn

When it comes to music, Alexa offers a variety of options. You can ask her to play a particular song, album, track or record. However, not all songs will be played in the way you expect them to be. For example, requesting “Free” services such as Amazon Free, Spotify Free and Amazon Music Prime may provide songs with a similar vibe to the one you requested but Radio-like services do not have these features on their own platform. In order to ensure that the song is played the way you want it to be, make sure that the station name is included in your query.

You can also jump to a track number of an album directly from TuneIn without having worry about whether or not Alexa knows which artist or genre you’re interested in hearing. Just give her the album name and track number and she’ll take care of the rest!

How can I play certain songs on Alexa for free?

If you want to play certain songs on Alexa for free, you can say “Alexa, play songs I haven’t heard.” This will allow you to listen to a selection of Amazon Music tracks that you haven’t heard in awhile. Keep in mind that this feature is only available for Amazon Music users and not for radio-like services like Pandora and iHeartRadio. Additionally, some songs are missing this feature because it is not yet available in the Alexa app.

How do I search and play music on Alexa?

When it comes to playing music on Alexa, we have a few options. We can either search for a specific song or artist and play it that way, or we can create a radio station based around our preferences. If we want to create a radio station, Alexa needs some information from us in order to get started.

First, we need to specify the name of the service that we’re using. There are three free services: Amazon Free, Spotify Free, and Amazon Music Prime. The two paid services are Apple Music and Pandora Radio. Second, we need to choose the genre of music that we’re interested in. Third, Alexa will ask us for an artist’s name or the name of a song. Once she has all this information, she’ll start playing music from that particular artist or genre on the chosen service.

If TuneIn is our preferred service for listening to music, things work a bit differently than with the other services mentioned above. First off, we need to specify the TuneIn Radio Station Name when asking Alexa to play our favourite tunes (for example: “Alexa play Jazz on TuneIn”). Secondly, because TuneIn doesn’t have as many stations as either Amazon or Spotify do, if what you’re looking for isn’t available on TuneIn, Alexa won’t be able to help you. Finally, we can ask Alexa to create a station based on the album or radio station preference. For example, “Alexa play the new Taylor Swift album” or “Alexa play oldies from the ’50s.”

How do I add music to Alexa?

In order to play music on an Echo, you must have a paid Spotify premium membership. The account needs to be linked with Alexa before you can ask for Today’s Top Hits, Discover Weekly, or a custom playlist. To link your account with Alexa, visit the Music & Podcasts section of the app and tap the “Settings” button.

Tap “Link New Service” to add a music service. Enter the account information for that service, and then tap “Done.” You can now use all the services you’ve linked, just by adding it to your request:

You can now upload and play songs from your Amazon Music account.

You can rename the playlist, add and remove songs, or ask Alexa to play it at any time.

#7: Take advantage of voice commands

There are many ways to take advantage of voice commands with Alexa. You can ask her to play music from your library, or specific types of music like “Live” or “Remix.” You can also control how she responds to your commands by choosing different settings in the Alexa app. For example, you can choose whether she repeats the song title or artist after playing a requested song.

You can also ask for music suggestions based on what’s in your library, or based on specific genres and artists that you like. And if you have an Apple Music account, you can connect it to your Amazon Echo device so you never miss a beat!
