Amazon has introduced a new feature to Alexa that makes it easy to share your favorite music with friends and family by asking the voice assistant.

That way, you can ask Alexa to share it with them when you listen to a song you like – or one you think someone you know will enjoy. They then receive a notification on their Alexa phone app and via Alexa itself. When shopping for this, the song is played on a device of your choice.

All that is required is that the song is available on a music streaming service that your contact subscribes to. If the song cannot be found, Alexa will suggest a music station based on the name of the track and artist you recommended.

To get started with music sharing, first make sure that Alexa Communications is enabled in your Alexa account. To do this, follow these instructions:

  1. Open the Alexa smartphone app
  2. Press the Communicate button
  3. Follow the instructions in the app to enable communication with Alexa

Communication also includes Alexa features such as calls, messages, notifications and drop-in.

Now just ask Alexa to play some music. Then when a song comes along that you want to share with a friend, say, “Alexa, share this song with [name]. “As long as the person is on your Alexa contact list, the assistant will send it to them.

When you receive a song recommendation from a friend, you will be alerted by the Alexa smartphone app. Alexa on your smart speaker or screen will also alert you to a new message. You can then say, “Alexa, what are my messages?” and the assistant will say about the setting who it is from and ask if you want to play the song.

If you respond to the notification in the Alexa app, you can then choose which Alexa device you want to play the song from. Amazon hopes to expand this feature in the future, saying, “This is just the beginning of this feature, we will continue to develop this experience over time and are excited to hear what customers think.”
