You Can Now Ask Alexa To Wake You Up With Music

To get the most out of the Fire TV you really need to be an Amazon Prime member, as that gives you access to Amazon Video's free content, where you can access movies and shows, with plenty of quality exclusives, like The Grand Tour and The Man in the High Castle.

The app makes the BBC's full range of live radio stations and on-demand podcasts available to Amazon Echo and Alexa users for the first time, with users able to access these by asking for a station or show. Alexa can be used to set an alarm; that is nothing new.

It has an advantage over Google's Chromecast because there's a menu and a user interface to navigate, so it's simple to understand. Naturally, there are a few perks if you use one of Amazon's music services.

Flu season off to an early - and nasty - start
The recommendation for the Southern Hemisphere is made in September. "They study us as much as we study them". This flu season is beginning earlier than the previous couple of years, which had unusually late starts.

A variety of voice commands can be used to set up these alarms. And let's face it: even if you're just using Alexa on your phone, Amazon would rather be the one to start your day. You get a lot of top class entertainment for your money at that price. Finally, Amazon Music subscribers in particular are also given the option of telling Alexa to wake them up with a song with specific lyrics, an option for those who know the song but can't remember its name.

"Today's announcement signifies an important moment for Amazon Music Unlimited and our worldwide customers as we continue to offer more music fans all over the world a completely new way to hear expertly-curated playlists and songs from their favourite artists".
