Alexa can now find and play music for over 500 ‘activities’

Quote:
Alexa’s ability to help you find the right music got a boost this week. The virtual assistant is now able to pull up music for a wide range of activities – like music to focus to, music to nap to, to run to, to meditate to, to cook to, and much more – just by asking. The feature works with Amazon’s free streaming service Prime Music as well as Amazon Music Unlimited – its Spotify competitor that’s designed especially with Alexa and Echo speakers in mind, as it’s able to respond to a series of voice commands that go beyond simple song requests.

At launch, Amazon Music Unlimited offered users the ability to ask Alexa for music by genre, era, mood or even by lyrics. The goal is to make playing music easier than fiddling around in an app to find something to listen to, when you’re not set on hearing a particular song or artist.

But it also demonstrates the power of tying Alexa to a music service, as well as Amazon hardware, and a Prime membership – the latter which offers you a discounted Amazon Music Unlimited subscription of $7.99 per month, compared with the $9.99 per month for non-Prime members (or for Apple Music or Spotify for that matter.)

Can confirm - only made it 5 minutes into the episode and my Echo had already set an alarm for 7am today. Mute them if you plan to watch the episode around one.

Let me help you spread some cheer.
Just ask, "Alexa, sing me a holiday song.”

"Alexa, wake me up to Pentatonix at 7am."
With music alarms, you can now wake up to your favorite song, artist, playlist, or radio station. Learn more.
"Alexa, where is Santa?"
"Alexa, tell me about your Jeopardy! skills."
"Alexa, spin the dreidel."
"Alexa, find me a cranberry scone recipe."

Keep your holiday gifts a surprise—you can now choose whether Alexa reads the names of items being delivered.
"Alexa, what movies are playing nearby?"
"Alexa, open my gift."
"Alexa, what's your favorite sport?"
"Alexa, play songs for drinking eggnog from Amazon Music."
"Alexa, when did Dan Brown's latest book come out?"
Alexa can also help you listen to books, bedtime stories, quotes, and more.
"Alexa, what are you reading?"
"Alexa, what should I serve at my holiday party?"
"Alexa, what's the tallest mountain in New York?"
"Alexa, what are the top holiday movies?"
"Alexa, call Dad's mobile."

Alexa is coming to PCs

Amazon Alexa will soon arrive on Windows PCs, creating new competition for Microsoft’s built-in Cortana voice assistant.

Hardware makers HP, ASUS, Acer and others plan to bring Alexa to their computers this year, further expanding the reach of Amazon’s voice assistant. The integrations, announced at CES in Las Vegas, will allow PC users to interact with Alexa in much the same way as they do on Amazon Echo speakers and third-party devices — to control the lights, get flash briefings, or anything else Alexa normally does.

A coworker of mine wired up a echo dot into his truck. He has it paired with his wireless mifi that has unlimited data from our work and it works great. It is probably one of the slickest car audio setups I have ever seen. He does everything just by talking to Alexa. He can make phone calls and play his entire music library etc just by talking to it.

Just saw the commercial last weekend regarding the new cars now with Alexa. They also have lighter adapter now on Amazon that's a single plug and play unit. I recently got tired of waiting on Direct TV to integrate with Alexa and purchased the Harmony remote and hub from walmart for $58. now I walk in the house and say " Turn on living room lights And Turn on TV. The TV automatically turns on to ESPN along with my sound bar and everything. It will change to what ever channel I ask for whether by number or station name. Also love it when I say Alexa Play my music. I'm getting spoiled!!

Finally 5 sec delay when asking "hey , Alexa" and then having a follow question. No longer have to say hey Alexa again if within 5 seconds.
