How Do I Make A Playlist On Alexa?
- Randall Mullins
How to create and edit playlists with Alexa – It’s easy. Simply say, “Alexa, create a new playlist” or, you can say something like, “Alexa, create a ‘Road Trip’ playlist” or “Alexa, create a ‘Morning Smoothies’ playlist” or “Alexa, create a ‘Super Sleep’ playlist”.
To add songs to a specific playlist, all you need to do is say “Alexa, add to my playlist”. And then it’ll add it. So, if you wanted to add ‘Sweet Caroline’ by Neil Diamond to your ‘Road Trip’ playlist you’d say “Alexa, add Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond to my Road Trip playlist”, and it will be added.
If you’re listening to a song on Amazon Music, you can even say, “Alexa, add this song to my playlist”. Note: If you prefer to create playlists the manual way, you can always do so through Amazon Music for Web or the Amazon Music apps for desktop, iOS, Android, and Fire tablet,

How to Play a Spotify Playlist on Alexa – After you connect the apps and finish the setup, Alexa will play music from Spotify by default. To play a specific playlist, you should say: “Alexa, play,” You should note that there is no need to add “my” or say something like: “Alexa, play my,” That might confuse the app, and Alexa would respond that it can’t do it.
Open the Alexa app and tap on Play. Scroll through the Spotify Playlists section and tap on the one you want to listen to. Choose the Alexa device that will play your Spotify playlist.
Your music will automatically begin to play on the device you select. If you want to play from a source other than Spotify, simply say “Alexa, play on Pandora.’ Or select the playlist directly from the app as we did above. The great thing about playing music with Alexa is that you can also lower or raise the volume via voice commands, jump tracks, or ask Alexa to repeat a song.

Is music free on an Alexa?
Try Amazon Music for free – Before, there was no automatic provision for music built into the Echo or Alexa, and you could only access Prime Music if you were an Amazon Prime subscriber. However, Amazon has a free tier of its music streaming service that’s ad-supported and available for any Alexa-enabled device.
- The new level gives users access to a selection of top playlists and stations for free – beforehand, as we say, this was only available for Prime members.
- It’s naturally more limited, since there’s no subscription required, and is similar to the two million free songs that Prime subscribers get.
- If you were to pay for Music Unlimited, there’s access to more than 40 million, by comparison.
You can access the free music based on songs, artists, eras or genres, saying things like, “Alexa, play the station.” Alternatively, you can choose one of the many preset playlists, including Fuego Latino, Country Heat and more. If you want to try out a fully paid Amazon Music Unlimited subscription, you can do that, too.
