Can you change Alexa alarm sound to a song?
Ask Alexa to play a music alarm – You can ask Amazon Alexa to play a specific song, playlist, artist, or genre as your alarm. The feature supports several music services, so it can pull alarm tones from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, SiriusXM, and iHeartRadio.
- Music alarms work on any Alexa-powered device – not just Amazon Echo-branded smart speakers,
- The only exception is Fire TV, which doesn’t support alarms.
- To set a music alarm, just say, “Alexa, wake me up at 7AM to Adele” or “Alexa, wake me up to 70s music at 8AM” or “Alexa, wake me up to ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ at 5AM”.
You can be as specific or as a vague as you like. You can even set a music alarm by song lyrics, in the case you don’t know the song’s title. That only works with Amazon Music, however. A music alarm also doesn’t have to be configured every night. If you wake up at the same time, you can ask Alexa to wake you up “every day” at a certain time.
