Why Does Alexa Keep Stopping?
- Randall Mullins
Amazon Alexa speakers are excellent for listening to music — that is, when they work as expected and don’t randomly stop the music for seemingly no reason. Since its inception in 2014, Alexa has become one of the most versatile smart assistants around.
It can do simple things like check the weather and find recipes, all the way up to more advanced tasks such as helping care for an older family member. One of the most popular features of Alexa devices is the ability to play streaming music from TuneIn, Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, and others. Just link one of the above music services, say ‘ Alexa,’ and ask the virtual helper to play any song, playlist, album, or radio station you can think of,
Despite being one of the most popular and basic functions of an Alexa speaker, it’s something that many people often complain about not working. For someone with an Alexa gadget that’s stopping the music after a song or two, here are a few tips to keep in mind.
- One of the most popular and go-to solutions for fixing any Alexa device when the music stops playing or any other problem is also the simplest – unplug the device, wait for a minute, and then plug it back in.
- In many cases, this hard reset is all Alexa needs to get rid of any bugs and start working as intended.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t always solve the problem. If someone’s still having issues, there are a few other things to check.

- ¿Y a ti? | Request a song or album using your voice.
When Alexa responds with something like, “Playing your album XYZ from Amazon Music” wait until the blue light goes out. Then say, “Alex, loop.” Alexa should respond with “loop mode one.” If it’s only one song, that same song will play continuously until you tell it to stop.
- If it’s an album or playlist, it will play to the end of the album or playlist and then start it over again.

¿Y a ti? | So I think the music streams for like 1-2 hours then stops. I turn it on for my dog, too, when I go to work. If you have the app, you can go into it and recontinue the music via the app. It will ask which device you want to stream with and I select the one at home that my dog can hear.

¿Y a ti? | we use Alexa at work with SiriusXm and it stayed on for about 20 hours and shut off. I asked Alexa to play the last station and it went right back to the station we were listening to. So it looks like about 20 hours which is fine. She’ll be off over the weekend which isn’t a big deal since no one is here anyways.
