Grab yourself a 4K Amazon Fire TV with Alexa for just £55

12 December 2017

Amazon today announced that Alexa-enabled devices like the Echo and Echo Plus can now be set to a specific song, playlist, podcast for alarms.

Alongside other Echo devices, the new feature is likely to be put to use on the Echo Spot, due out December 19, which Amazon bills as a smart alarm clock.

Apparel designers Brooks Brothers jumped at the chance to incorporate Amazon's new service for Alexa called Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help manage the various smaller details going on during the company's meetings. Maybe you've already set the your daily or weekly alarm because it's just the same but for those who have different sleep schedules, asking Alexa to set the alarm for you will be helpful.

The new functionality is available to Alexa users now. Other streaming services supported by the Amazon Echo can also be chosen, including Spotify, Pandora, Sirius XM, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio.

A variety of voice commands can be used to set up these alarms. This functionality covers multiple music services, including the company's own Amazon Music app (if you're a subscriber). Choose your music service, artist, genre, radio station, or song saved in your device.

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. For example, a user can say "Alexa, set an alarm for 7:00 a.m. and play "Shape of You" by Ed Sheeran". Users can even ask for wake-up songs that have specific lyrics in them - but only if they've got an Amazon Music account.
