Week 2 of Fun with Alexa! Last week, in Movies with Alexa, I talked about how much I love my Amazon Echo Dot and how useful (and fun!) Alexa is. So we’re going to keep the fun going with Music with Alexa this week!
General Music Tips:
- Alexa, play [artist]. (We ask for Elmo a lot.)
- Alexa, play ___ playlist. (Alexa will play any playlist you created through Amazon music.)
- Alexa, who sings [song title]?
- Alexa, who is in the band ___? (You can ask for the members of just about any band.)
