You’ve been using your Amazon Echo to play your favorite songs and playlists. But there are so many more music requests you can give to Alexa when listening to Amazon Music on your smart speaker.

For example, you can ask Alexa to start announcing each song it’s going to play with the hidden Song ID feature. You can also tell Alexa which songs you like so that it can get a better idea of what you want to listen to. You can also request music for specific activities.

Here’s how to start using these Alexa music tips we found for your Amazon Echo.

Song ID

When you’re listening to a new song you’ve never heard, it can be annoying to interrupt the song by asking Alexa what it’s called or who sings it. However, with a feature called Song ID, Alexa will announce the artist and name of the track before playing the song. To enable, say, “Alexa, turn on Song ID.”

Music alarms

Make your mornings more exciting by setting your alarms by mood, lyric, song title, playlist or genre. As an Amazon Music subscriber, you can ask Alexa to set a song as your alarm by saying a few lyrics from the song or by genre. For example, you can say, “Alexa, set an alarm at 7 a.m. to We Are the Champions” or, “Alexa, wake me up with relaxing music at 7 a.m.”
