Just say “Alexa, add this song to my playlist!”
Most of my music listening time is spent on my playlists. (They really help make my work day and my workouts go by a lot faster!) But sometimes, I hear a great song that I just have to add to one of my playlists.
Alexa just made this a whole lot easier with a new feature.
When you hear a song you love in Amazon Music, just say, “Alexa, add this song to my playlist.” And she will!
If you’re like me and have multiple playlists, she’ll ask you which playlist to add it to. Just tell her which one, and she’ll put it in the right spot.
You can also ask her to create a playlist. Just say, “Alexa, create a playlist.” She’ll ask you what to name it, and then you can give it a name!
3 smart tips to optimize your Alexa playlists
#1. You need to be listening on Amazon Music
“Alexa, add this song to my playlist” only works on Amazon music. Just say “Alexa, play (insert name of the song) on Amazon Music” to play a song on Amazon Music.
#2. Remember, Amazon Music is free with a Prime membership
If you have Amazon Prime, that means you have free access to 2 million songs on Amazon Music automatically linked to your Alexa account. Yay!
#3. Don’t want to say “on Amazon Music” at the end of every music command?
Tap/click here to set Amazon Music as your default music provider. (If you haven’t set a third party music provider like Spotify as your default, your Alexa music commands will default to Amazon Music.)
