Spotify Premium Works Perfectly With Amazon’s Echo
Personally I’m creeped out knowing that my Smart TV, laptop and more recently my Amazon Echo A.I. device are listening to me; just not creeped out enough to actually do anything about it. That being said Amazon has recently added Spotify integration to its A.I. Echo, and it works perfectly.
Once it’s set up using the Alexa app, go ahead and tell it what you want to hear and Echo will take care of the rest. Installation is a breeze, just follow these simple steps below.
How to integrate Spotify Premium With Amazon’s Echo:
- Start the Alexa app on your tablet, mobile device or computer.
- Open the menu located in the top left corner.
- Choose “Settings”.
- Open “Music & Media”.
- Click “Spotify”
- Click “Link Account”
- Enter your username and password or optionally choose to login with Facebook if that is your normal login method.
- Click “Okay”
