Use Spotify to listen to music and podcasts on Alexa.
Before you start, please make Spotify your default music streaming service so you don't have to say ""on Spotify"" every time you ask Alexa for your favourite music content.
To do this, follow these simple steps:
1 - Set up your Alexa device using the Amazon Alexa app 2 - Open the menu, go to Settings, then Music 3 - If Spotify is not set up, tap 'Link New Service', select Spotify 4 - Link your Spotify account to your Alexa account 5 - Tap 'Default Services' and then select Spotify as the Default Music Library.
Use Spotify Free and ask Alexa on your Echo smart speaker for: • Any artist, album or track to hear a music mix inspired by your choice • Your personal playlists to hear a playlist radio based on your mix • Or listening to our specially curated playlists for every genre, mood or activity!
Tune in to hundreds of personalised radio stations with favorite and up-and-coming artists
Go Premium and : • Listen to music ad-free • Ask for any track or album on-demand
Spotify also offers thousands of podcasts, including originals that you can't find anywhere else. All podcasts are playable on-demand. Please note : You need to say ""on Spotify"" after asking for a podcast from Spotify on Alexa.
Remember to make Spotify your default music streaming service so you don't have to say ""on Spotify"" every time you ask Alexa for your favourite music content.

when I first started using it it seemed to work not problem. then it would randomly stop the music, sometimes it would start again after 5mins and other times it wouldnt play at all. asking Alexa to continue would get a couple of seconds of music before stopping again. now alexia tells me she cant find any playlist i ask for and when i asked to plah my liked songs she started playing a classical music playlist (ive never listened to that so it was a random playlist on spotify). she did this several times, although the playlists she did play were different (one was piano background music) none of them were anh of my playlists, and the list name didnt sound remotely like ‘liked songs’ so how she thought thats what i was asking I have no idea. The skill needs to be fixed desperatly
Followed every step to the letter. whenever i ask Alexa to play music using any command, it replies "here's Spotify" and just plays silence even thoigh it acts like it is playing somthing. ..And no my volume isnt turned down or "insert stupid mistake" etc, i am not special in the head
I have a 5 year old google home mini that as long as youre connected to the same wifi network, it will allow anyone to play spotify through it. My brand new alexa dots (three of them) will not work with more than one spotofy account. I can link one spotkfy account and the speakers come up on the devices list in the spotify app but when i link another amazon account it just ignores it. Google doesnt even need apps to be linked, it just plays through anyones phone as long as their connected to our home wifi! Not at all impressed, I should have sticked with google.
Continually stops playing, won't play the ONLY playlist I have, even when I try using the spotify app on my phone to get it to play through my dot, it either flat out won't co-operate or it plays a few songs then stops. I only got it to play music and it's proving itself useless!! I don't need this stress 🤬🤬🤬
Used to work fine. Now Alexa acknowledges the command to play my music on Spotify but nothing. Just silence. Amazon Support was not helpful and did not fix it. Spotify Support tried a few thing, disable Skill, reinstall Spotify. No help. They said it was an Amazon issue. Spotify will play on Echo devices from the Spotify app, but no selection of music is possible with voice commands. Amazon Prime music works fine with voice commands.
Something happened sfter submitting my review. Alexa is behaving as per specifications. Seriously dobut if it is a result of my commets.
i use this all the time. i have multiroom music groups set up in alexa and i can select them from spotify directly. mutiroom has some quirks but they are amazon related and the occur even with amazon music.
wish there was more capability for show devices. e.g. lyrics etc that you get on spotify apps on tvs etc
used spotify with Alexa for several months. Now it suddenly wont connect to my devices, although they are working correctly. tried the usual 'fixes' ie updating spotify, clearing cache, restarting my phone, updating alexa - all with little improvement. i can now sometimes connect to a device and play something yet if i then try to connect to another device i'm back where i started and can only listen to spotify in my phone.
More often than not a challenge or impossible to get Alexa to play what you want. It refuses to add songs from Spotify to your favourites which is extra painful. One reason i bought her was because it was compatible with my music on Spotify but its bias to Amazon music goes too far
