Alexa customers in Canada are now able to listen to podcasts available through Spotify on their Echo devices. Customers can enable Spotify by linking their account in the Alexa app. Once enabled, they can start listening on their device. It’s easy to find and play your favorite podcasts with Alexa—all you have to do is ask for the podcast you want to hear. Pause the episode you’re listening to on one Echo device and continue listening from where you left off on one of your other Echo devices, or on Spotify (web, mobile, desktop), by asking Alexa to resume the podcast by name.
Here are a few things to try to get started:
- Alexa, play the Front Burner podcast on Spotify
- Alexa, play the latest episode of Dark Poutine podcast on Spotify
- Alexa, resume Front Burner podcast on Spotify
- Alexa, fast forward 30 seconds
- Alexa, next episode
