Use Spotify to listen to music and podcasts on Alexa.

To do this, follow these simple steps:
1 - Set up your Alexa device using the Amazon Alexa app 2 - Open the menu, go to Settings, then Music 3 - If Spotify is not set up, tap 'Link New Service', select Spotify 4 - Link your Spotify account to your Alexa account 5 - Tap 'Default Services' and then select Spotify as the Default Music Library.
Use Spotify Free and ask Alexa on your Echo smart speaker for: • Any artist, album or track to hear a music mix inspired by your choice • Your personal playlists to hear a playlist radio based on your mix • Or listening to our specially curated playlists for every genre, mood or activity!
Tune in to hundreds of personalised radio stations with favorite and up-and-coming artists
Go Premium and : • Listen to music ad-free • Ask for any track or album on-demand
Spotify also offers thousands of podcasts, including originals that you can't find anywhere else. All podcasts are playable on-demand. Please note : You need to say ""on Spotify"" after asking for a podcast from Spotify on Alexa.
Remember to make Spotify your default music streaming service so you don't have to say ""on Spotify"" every time you ask Alexa for your favourite music content.

when I first started using it it seemed to work not problem. then it would randomly stop the music, sometimes it would start again after 5mins and other times it wouldnt play at all. asking Alexa to continue would get a couple of seconds of music before stopping again. now alexia tells me she cant find any playlist i ask for and when i asked to plah my liked songs she started playing a classical music playlist (ive never listened to that so it was a random playlist on spotify). she did this several times, although the playlists she did play were different (one was piano background music) none of them were anh of my playlists, and the list name didnt sound remotely like ‘liked songs’ so how she thought thats what i was asking I have no idea. The skill needs to be fixed desperatly
Alexa will play other music apps fine but Spotify just plays silence or last played song when using voice command on the echo dot alexa on phone and tablet works but just not the echo on same home network.
Steps taken to rectify but still the problem occurs.
Uninstall/Reinstall Spotify on the echo Delete voice recordings on Amazon Reset Echo Reset wifi settings on echo Reset modem Use google DNS on modem Reset wifi on echo and delete wifi passwords saved on Amazon.
Followed every step to the letter. whenever i ask Alexa to play music using any command, it replies "here's Spotify" and just plays silence even thoigh it acts like it is playing somthing. ..And no my volume isnt turned down or "insert stupid mistake" etc, i am not special in the head
Used to work fine. Now Alexa acknowledges the command to play my music on Spotify but nothing. Just silence. Amazon Support was not helpful and did not fix it. Spotify Support tried a few thing, disable Skill, reinstall Spotify. No help. They said it was an Amazon issue. Spotify will play on Echo devices from the Spotify app, but no selection of music is possible with voice commands. Amazon Prime music works fine with voice commands.
Something happened sfter submitting my review. Alexa is behaving as per specifications. Seriously dobut if it is a result of my commets.
used spotify with Alexa for several months. Now it suddenly wont connect to my devices, although they are working correctly. tried the usual 'fixes' ie updating spotify, clearing cache, restarting my phone, updating alexa - all with little improvement. i can now sometimes connect to a device and play something yet if i then try to connect to another device i'm back where i started and can only listen to spotify in my phone.
