“Hey Alexa, make me a new playlist” – Create playlists from Amazon Echo

Amazon have added one of the most requested features to Echo speakers so you can make and stream playlists without the touch of a button.

There are thousands of things you can ask Alexa or tell her to do, and that list just got one big feature bigger. Creating playlists on Amazon Music is as simple as telling Amazon Echo to create a new playlist, then add whatever songs you like and stream away. The playlist will be saved to your service.

Amazon are making it easier to track and explore music with every move, trying to make modern, tech-filled home life as convenient as can be made with voice control. Unfortunately Amazon have only added this ability to Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited on the Echo speakers.

When your listening to an Amazon music service with Alexa, give it a go by saying:

  • “Alexa, add this song to my playlist”
  • “Alexa, add this to my playlist”
  • “Alexa, add this to my ‘Studying’ playlist”
  • “Alexa, create a new playlist from this song”
  • “Alexa create a new playlist”
