Spotify podcasts now available through AlexaApril 22, 2021
Got yourself an Alexa speaker? Getting an Echo or Echo Dot for Christmas? Well, good news. You can now listen to the Coolsmartphone Podcast or any other podcast through Spotify on your shiny Echo device. Just link Spotify in the Alexa app and you’re away.
Once enabled, you can start listening on your device. You can also control the podcast, adjusting the volume as normal but also fast-forwarding or skipping to the next episode like so…
Alexa, play The Coolsmartphone Podcast on Spotify
Alexa, play the latest episode of The Coolsmartphone Podcast on Spotify
Alexa, resume The Coolsmartphone Podcast on Spotify
Alexa, fast forward 30 seconds
Alexa, next episode
Open the Alexa app, go to Settings, select Music & Podcasts, and link/manage new services to add Spotify. This will ensure that Alexa prioritises Spotify rather than any other podcast service.
