Amazon's Alexa speakers are incredibly popular, in part because of their versatility. In addition to Amazon Music, Alexa speakers can also connect to Spotify, giving users access to an even wider range of music. Not only can you use Alexa to request tunes with your voice, but Echo devices also support Spotify Connect, letting you stream tunes manually. Connecting Alexa to Spotify offers full control of playback and your music library, an Alexa EQ feature to fine-tune audio, with tons of commands for seamless control of your music. Whether you're a diehard Amazon fan or a Spotify devotee, connecting your Alexa speaker is a great way to get the most out of your music listening experience.

Before you can start using Spotify with your Echo speaker, you'll need to set up a few things. First, you'll need to make sure you have both a Spotify and Amazon account.

Step 2: Go to “Settings” and choose “Music & Podcasts” under ALEXA PREFERENCES.
