Just say, “Alexa, play more like this”
I love listening to my favorite playlists, but sometimes I want to change it up.
If you want to discover some new songs like the the ones you like (but just a little different!), all you have to say is “Alexa, play more like this” while an old favorite is playing.
- Ask Alexa to play a favorite song, like “Alexa, play Mexico by James Taylor.”
- Say “Alexa, play more like this” and she’ll go to a song by the same artist, or a similar playlist
Pro Tip #1: The algorithm is still working out some kinks, so you may just end up with a selection by the same artist. In that case, you can try “Alexa, play music by James Taylor and similar artists,” and she’ll mix it up a bit with artists with a similar mood, like The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac.
Pro Tip #2: Don’t like what she’s playing? Just say, “Alexa, skip this song,” and she’ll move on to the next one.
