what are some of the things
Alexa can do?
LISTENING TO MUSIC ANYTIME
The Echo's most popular function is streaming music. Ask Alexa, the Echo's voice assistant, to play some jazz, or tell her you want to hear "Rhapsody in Blue," and she'll do it. Amazon Prime Music is a music streaming service for Amazon Prime members. You get access to over 2 million songs & can listen anytime & it's ad-free. This service is free for anyone who subscribes to Amazon Prime & it's available for use on your Amazon Echo.
For $3.99/month you can listen to Amazon Music Unlimited on a single Echo device where you can have many more selections ie a catalog of tens of millions of songs, so now you can ask Alexa to play just about any song or artist.
You can choose either Amazon Music or Spotify as your default music library, & you can choose between Amazon Music, iHeartRadio & Pandora as your default station service.
