If you are hosting a holiday party and need a digital DJ or are just want to enjoy some Christmas tunes, Amazon Prime members have access to a playlist filled with holiday music. Simply say, “Alexa, Echo (or whatever you call your Amazon smart speaker), play some Christmas Music.” Or, you can download the Amazon Music app which is free to download on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon and play music from your mobile device.
You can also use Alexa (and the other Amazon smart speakers/hubs) this holiday season to set timers, add items to Christmas lists, and create calendar events and reminders. Alexa will check the news, weather, or traffic for you. And, you can even ask for sports scores, movie showtimes, restaurant hours, or information. Alexa will also help you voice control your smart home and keep your family in sync.
Make your Echo kid-friendly at no extra charge by enabling Amazon FreeTime in the Alexa app. Automatically filter explicit songs, add approved contacts, set time limits, or review activity with easy-to-use parental controls in the Amazon Parent Dashboard. Childrenâ€™s privacy is important to Amazon.Â Learn moreÂ about FreeTime on Alexa.
