Instead of hearing your Alexa alarm sound a terrible, jerky sound, how about nice, soothing music? Or maybe something upbeat? You may want to start your daywith a personal theme song. Regardless of your taste in music, we'll show you how to set a song as speaker alarm ̵

The voice assistant will then set your alarm so that the song you selected will be played at the specified time.
Setting music alarms also provides a gap for listening to songs that are normally only available to Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers. For example, if you're an Amazon Prime Music subscriber (not Unlimited), you don't have access to all artists. Alexa will say, "It's not included in Prime, but it's available in Amazon Music Unlimited." However, if you ask to hear it as an alarm, you can listen to the entire song.
By default Alexa pulls the songs from Amazon Music. However, you can change the music database to your supported preferred music service, e.g. B.or Apple Music. Open the Alexa app menu and select Settings . Scroll down and tap Music & Podcasts > Standard Services . From here you can tap on Change in the Music section and make your selection. However, if you don't see your favorite music service, you need to tap . Select standard service and select one of the options.
