“Alexa, wake me up to Rick Astley”.

Smart speakers can be used for a laundry list of different things, but as I’ve quickly been discovering with my Google Home Mini, some of them are fantastic little alarm clocks , a new update now allows users to wake up to the song of their choice rather than Amazon’s default alarm tune.


amazon echo plus review 2017 6 300x225 Now you can play your favorite songs on Amazon Echo Speakers...


To choose the song that you’d like to wake up to, simply say “Alexa, wake me up to” and then the song of your choice. . You can choose a specific title that you’d like to hear first thing in the morning. Also, if you really don’t care what song you hear, you can always just say “Alexa, wake me up to music” to be woken up by a random selection.

Echo speakers will be able to use music for alarms from Amazon Prime Music, Amazon Music Unlimited, iHeartRadio, Pandora, SiriusXM, Spotify, and TuneIn.

Amazon says this is a feature that’s been highly requested by many of its users, and it’s coming out just in time for the Echo Spot that’s scheduled to go on sale December 19. As for existing Echo hardware, they’ll be able to use this feature starting today.
