There are a lot of different ways to listen to music on your Amazon Echo. But if you’re already a premium Spotify subscriber, you can make the online music streaming the default choice when it comes to playing music on Alexa.
Open the Alexa app on your phone and tap the Menu button () and go to Settings > Music and Media. If you haven’t already connected your Spotify and Echo accounts, click Link account on Spotify.com and log in with your Spotify credentials.
Once your accounts are linked, tap the Choose default music services and you can select Spotify as your default music library. This means that when you ask Alexa to play any given song, it will default to Spotify. This will only work for Spotify Premium members.
When it comes to your default music stations, you can choose between Amazon Music, Pandora, and IHeartRadio. If for any reason you prefer not to link your Spotify and Amazon Echo accounts, you can always specify that you want to listen to music on Spotify in your voice commands.
