Alexa music alarm wakes you up with news and tunes

"The Capitals" Alexa Skill allows fans with an Amazon device (Echo, Echo-Dot and Echo Show) to ask "Alexa" specific questions including schedule, roster and statistical information about the Washington Capitals.

The feature works by asking Alexa to "Wake me up each morning at 8am by playing [song name or genre]". Last Friday, the Amazon Music Unlimited streaming service and the Echo smart speaker became available in no less than 28 additional countries. An option to choose the songs your preferred streaming service including Amazon's Prime Music or partner services like Spotify, TuneIn and Pandora will also be present.

While this might look like a minor feature, it is an important one for users who are still trying to bridge the gap between the devices of the past and modern technology.

Since first launching in the USA in October of 2016, Amazon Music Unlimited has expanded to the UK, Germany, Austria, Japan and more, transforming music streaming with the ability to just ask Alexa to play music by voice and creating the most natural listening environment for millions of subscribers. You can also choose mood music to begin your day the way you want.

You can choose to play a specific song, artist, album, or even a radio station.

If you're an Amazon Music subscriber, you get a few extra features on top of this.

Lastly, Amazon noted that the feature will work in any Alexa-powered device, and not just on the Amazon Echo.

Did You Grab An Amazon Echo? As it usually happens with the products and services available in multiple markets, the price of the Amazon Music Unlimited plans and the Echo smart speaker depend on the market. Alexa can be used to set an alarm; that is nothing new.
