According to the company, the users of the Alexa devices can now decide to wake up to music from their favorite streaming service. You can either rely on the Amazon’s own service such as Amazon Music Unlimited or Amazon Prime Music. It also supports third party streaming services such as iHeart Radio, SiriusXM, TuneIn, Pandora and Spotify.
It works more like how you request music today via Alexa. For instance you could ask genres, playlists, songs, names or even the lyrics if you don’t know the name of the song. The lyrics feature works only with the Amazon Music though.
For instance, you can set alarms like “rock music for running at 5 AM” or “the song that goes ‘Can you believe you can walk in water’ at 7AM” says Amazon. You also have the liberty to wake up to the music of several genres like 80s music, pop, rock or music from favorite artists.
As mentioned here above, this feature has to work on all the devices that are powered by Alexa. The only exception is Fire TV as it does not support alarms, because the TVs are generally turned off at night.
