Amazon Prime Music today announced an update to its mobile app as well as the Echo speakers, allowing users to ask Alexa to execute complex tasks while using its music streaming service. The move comes as a means to improve the listening experience when using the Prime Music service handsfree so users can freely play through the songs they haven’t heard of in a long time, with ease.
Additionally, users will be able to create playlists on their Prime Music account by through just voice commands by Alexa. Users can ask Alexa to either create new playlists or add a song they’re currently listening to an existing playlist. The update will also allow users to ask Alexa to play something that they haven’t heard in a long time as what point Alexa will play something that you listened to a long while back.
Furthermore, the latest update lets users search for a recently played song and make Alexa play it by asking for a certain genre, time or artist. Users can also create playlists from a single song they’re listening to. Here’s a list of commands which will work well with the newest update:
“Alexa, play songs which I haven’t heard in a while.”
“Alexa, play dance songs I haven’t heard recently.”
“Alexa, play something I haven’t heard in a while.”
“Alexa, play me songs which I recently played.”
“Alexa, play me the Arijit Singh song I listened to last month.”
“Alexa, play music that I was listening to earlier today.”
“Alexa, create a new playlist.”
“Alexa, create the playlist ‘My favourite hits’.”
“Alexa, add this song to my workout playlist.”
