Amazon Music Unlimited and Amazon Echo hit 28 new markets

The Amazon Echo Spot wants to relieve your smartphone of its alarm clock duties and Alexa's latest update makes the device a little more capable of handling the task.

The new functionality is available to Alexa users now.

You can sign-up to a free 30-day trial to Amazon Prime to try out the service and more.

Setting up music or news alarms with Alexa is simple, as with any other thing involving Amazon's digital assistant.

According to Amazon, Alexa device owners can now choose to wake up to music from their preferred streaming service, including Amazon's own Prime Music or Amazon Music Unlimited, as well as others supported by its devices, including Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, SiriusXM and iHeartRadio. The user can also ask the device to wake you up "every day" to the same song at the same time.




To set Alexa to wake you up with a certain track, artist or genre, say: "Alexa, wake me up at [time] with [track name/artist etc]".

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

Lastly, Amazon noted that the feature will work in any Alexa-powered device, and not just on the Amazon Echo.

This Fire HD 8 Tablet is usually $79.99 and is on sale right now for $49.99 at Amazon.com HERE! Amazon has been pushing its products, especially the Echo range of smart speakers, into customers' bedrooms by offering features that enhance their experience. Alexa can be used to set an alarm; that is nothing new. Finally, Amazon Music subscribers in particular are also given the option of telling Alexa to wake them up with a song with specific lyrics, an option for those who know the song but can't remember its name.
