Can Alexa play a playlist from my iPhone?
Initial pairing – The first thing you’ll have to do is get the two devices (your iPhone and the Amazon Echo device) connected. This entails pairing the iPhone with your Echo device via Bluetooth. To do this, take your iPhone near the Alexa device that you want to pair.
On your iPhone, open the Settings app. Navigate to Bluetooth and open it. Say, “Alexa, pair” to put the Amazon Echo device in Bluetooth Pairing mode. With that command, Alexa should give you an audible acknowledgment that it is searching and confirm when your Echo device is in pairing mode. Next, you’ll get a notification on your iPhone screen asking if you want to pair or giving you the ability to cancel the pairing request.
Tap “Pair” to connect the two devices via Bluetooth. Alexa should also give you an audible confirmation that it has just connected to, adding that now that you’re paired, you should just say “connect my phone” next time you want to reestablish the pairing.
- On your Bluetooth screen, the Echo will now show as connected.
- You can see this by scrolling to Other Devices at the bottom where the particular Echo device appears.
- Streaming music and more Once you have paired your iPhone with Alexa, you can open the Apple Music app and select the specific song or playlist that you want to stream.
You should then hear this selection play through your Echo speaker. You can stream audio from iTunes, Apple Music, Podcasts, and even the Apple TV. You also have the option to play music from any third-party app that has audio, such as AudioBox or Pandora.
- Controlling playback and more Alexa is a voice-controlled app so you will be able to control your playback by simply speaking to it once it is playing.
- You can tell the intelligent personal assistant to play, pause, raise and lower the volume, resume, and even skip ahead and back to the contents on that playlist.
You won’t be able, however, to ask Alexa to identify a song for you, nor can you make it play specific songs or other content from your iPhone. If you try asking your Alexa to play specific songs, it will simply break the connection to your iPhone and instead play music from the Amazon music source that you have set as your default choice, such as Amazon Music.
