Ways to Listen to Music & Media on Alexa

You can use Alexa to stream music and media from popular streaming services or over Bluetooth.

Streaming Music and Media Services on Amazon Alexa Devices

Alexa supports a growing number of free and subscription-based streaming services on Amazon devices. To see which services are available, in the Alexa app, select menu, Settings, and TV & Video.

You can ask Alexa to stream music and media through one or more of your Alexa devices. After you register an Alexa device to your Amazon account, you automatically have access to your Amazon Music library.

Some services require you to link an existing account or subscription to your Amazon account in the Alexa app. To learn more, go to Link a Third-Party Music Service to Alexa.

Note: Some music services are not available on Alexa-enabled products manufactured by other companies. Check with the product manufacturer for more information. Some Alexa features and services vary by country.

With explicit filter, all devices on the account are blocked from playing music with explicit lyrics. To learn more, go to Explicit Filter on Alexa-enabled Devices.

Stream Music and Media over Bluetooth

Note: Voice control is not supported for Mac OS X devices (such as MacBook Air) or on other Alexa-enabled products.
