Amazon's Alexa Can Now Wake You Up to Music of Your Choice

Dan Seifert  The Verge

However, thanks to a new update, these users can now set Alexa to wake them up with specific music, bringing back the days of being awoken with a radio alarm clock.

The BBC has launched an Amazon Alexa skill for Echo devices - its first full voice app for voice-controlled smart speakers.

Users can ask Alexa to wake them up at the time that they prefer with a song.

You can choose to play a specific song, artist, album, or even a radio station.

Amazon Music customers can also preset alarms with music based on their mood, activity, or remembered song lyrics by saying "Alexa, wake me up to relaxing music at 7 am" or "Alexa, set an alarm at 7 a.m.to the song that goes 'I've paid my dues time after time'". You can also choose from any music streaming available such as Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, or SiriusXM.

The music alarm can also be set up as a recurring one by adding terms such as "every weekday" to the voice command.

Josh Gordon: Cleveland Browns WR scores first touchdown since 2013
Cleveland led by two touchdowns into the early stages of the 4th quarter before the Packers rallied for a 27-21 overtime win. Kizer looked for wide receiver Josh Gordon and found him for a 38-yard gain on the Browns' first play to the Green Bay 46.

The feature has not been rolled out in all regions and devices yet.

If you're an Amazon Music subscriber, you get a few extra features on top of this.

Amazon has been trying to promote its products like the Echo range of smart speakers among others by offering innovative features to enhance the user experience.

The Echo and its different versions all use Amazon-developed speech assistant Alexa.

The company had recently announced the office-friendly Alexa allowing the businesses to buy the supported devices for helping the employees to dial into the conference calls, manage their calendars, find open meeting rooms along with other work supplies from Amazon to reduce their daily hassle.
