How to Set Spotify as Your Default Music Provider on Amazon Echo

Oyetoke Tobi - Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Have you ever played Spotify music on Amazon Echo? If you want to play Spotify music on the Amazon Echo, you'd have to say the artist or song you wanted to play and then tack on “on Spotify” at the end. 

This method it's a little clumsy, but now you don't have to do that, because you can now set Spotify as your Echo’s default music provider.

Amazon Echo uses the Amazon Music service each time you ask it to play a song by default. However, once you set Spotify as the default music provider, you can just say something like, “Alexa, play Work” and it will start playing the song from Spotify instead of Amazon Music. 

Fortunately, to set spotify as the default music provider on Amazon Echo is extremely easy. So here's how to do just that

So the first thing to do is to open the Alexa app on your smartphone and tap on the menu button at the top-left corner of the screen.


Then tap on “Settings”.


So select “Music & Media” under “Account” sub-heading.


Then tap on “Customize my music service preferences” at the bottom side.


Now tap on the drop-down menu labelled “Amazon Music” under “My default music library” heading.


Then select “Spotify” and tap “Done”.


So tap on “Done” again.


Once you've followed the above steps correctly, you don't need to tack on “on Spotify” anytime you want Alexa to play music from the Spotify service. 

So you can still use Amazon Music if you want to by adding the  “on Amazon Music” at the end of a command. Note that from now henceforth, Echo will use Spotify as a default music service provider.
