The most recent update of the Amazon Music app enables Alexa Cast, which will let you send or cast any song you’re listening to on your iOS or Android device to an Alexa speaker, like the Amazon Echo ( $99.99 at Amazon). If Alexa is already enabled on a third-party smart speaker, like those from Denon, Sonos, or Bose, you can also stream songs there.
Right now, this only works with Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited, but Amazon says support for other music streaming services will be added in the future. On Android, Amazon Music listeners can also cast to any Chromecast device; iOS users can send songs to Airplay-enabled devices.
Ready to Cast
After upgrading to the latest version, a pop-up will notify you that you can now cast to your Alexa devices when you first open the app.
Find a song
To get started, find the song you want to select. If something is already playing, swipe up from the bottom to make it full screen.
Find the cast button on the bottom menu, which looks like a Wi-Fi icon in a rectangular window.
Choose a device
A menu appears, showing all the speakers available on your network. Find your Alexa device and tap it.
Connected to your Echo
The song will start playing on your Echo device, and a notification will appear below the song title informing you that Amazon Music is “Connected to [Your Echo].”
To stop the music, tell your Echo device to disconnect. Or press the cast button again and tap “Disconnect” next to your Echo device.
