Amazon and Alexa Music now act in concert
Alexa is now available in the Amazon Music app on iOS and Android in the US, UK, Germany and Austria. That means that combining the power of natural language voice controls with a rich, visual app experience is straight forward. Tens of millions of songs are now at the tip of your tongue, as well as the tips of your fingers, wherever you go: Alexa music is now a thing.
If you’re both an Alexa devotee and an Amazon Music fan, then you can can tune into to stacks of music easily as of now. You can nw access your Amazon Music supplies via Alexa wherever you go,
Music listeners now have more choice than ever to find the music they want to play: either browse the app interface that Amazon Music customers already love, or just ask Alexa. To access Alexa music within the Amazon Music app, simply use the push-to-talk function within the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android on connected mobile devices and tablets.
I don’t personally have an Echo device and don’t use Alexa at all, but many people do. It seems that increasingly Amazon wants to inveigle itself into the daily life of users with, not just Alexa, but Prime too. That makes commercial sense but also does raise some alarm bells. Where might it end?
