Three Methods to Stream Apple Music to Amazon Echo Dot

follow

Amazon's Echo Dot is a smart speaker that packs all the technology and functionality of the original Echo into a much smaller package. Some days ago, the Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Generation) was released, which is a small but surprising product and it offers a gateway into the world of the smart home and improved audio over its previous models, as well as the Google Home Mini.

What is an Amazon Echo Dot used for?

Think of Amazon Echo Dot as your own personal assistant.

You can use it do everything else, like asking Alexa to play music, answer questions, read the news, check the weather, set alarms, control compatible smart home devices, and more. Echo Dot is designed around your privacy. You can press the microphone off button to disconnect the microphones.

Voice control your music

You can stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Sirius XM, and others. You can also listen to audiobooks from Audible.

Use your Dot to control other devices that you might have in your home.

You can pair with a second Echo Dot (3rd gen) for rich, stereo sound. Fill your home with music with compatible Echo devices in different rooms. Turn on lights, adjust thermostats, lock doors, and more with compatible connected devices. So let’s say you have a Philips Hue lightbulb, for example, the Dot can control that too. You’d just need to say “Alexa, turn off the bulb.”

Connect with others

Call almost anyone hands-free. Instantly drop in on other rooms in your home or make an announcement to every room with a compatible Echo device.

Use another speaker

Connect to your own speakers over Bluetooth or with a 3.5 mm audio cable.
