Are you listening to Amazon Music on an Echo smart speaker? A new feature called Song ID can make it easier to identify tracks.
Of course, you can always pull out your phone and tap on the Shazam app. But with Song ID, you won’t have to. When you enable this feature, Alexa announces the title and artist name before playing each song while you listen to Amazon Music on your Echo device.
To turn it on, just say “Alexa, turn on song ID”. If it starts to get boring, turn it off anytime by saying “Alexa, turn off song ID”.
“Amazon Music is the first music streaming service to introduce this feature, developed to aid in music discovery while listening to stations, playlists, news, etc., on a smart speaker,” Amazon said. in an email to PCMag.
Song ID is now available for Amazon Music users in the United States. If you miss Alexa’s announcement before the song, you can always ask “Alexa, what’s this song?” or “Alexa, who sings this song?”
The Amazon Music app gives Prime members access to a catalog of 2 million songs, playlists, and stations. Or you can upgrade to Amazon Music Unlimited to access over 50 million songs, thousands of playlists and stations, and personalized recommendations. New users can get a 30-day free trial of Amazon Music Unlimited; after that it costs $ 7.99 per month if you are a Prime member or $ 9.99 per month if you are not.
