You can sign-up to a free 30-day trial to Amazon Prime to try out the service and more. Other streaming services supported by the Amazon Echo can also be chosen, including Spotify, Pandora, Sirius XM, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio.

The Echo and its different versions all use Amazon-developed speech assistant Alexa.

"The All-New Fire HD 8 Tablet with Alexa, 8" HD Display, 16 GB is only $49.99 at Amazon today!

Apart from the Fire TV, all other Alexa-enabled devices can be programmed to play music as a wake-up call.

Instead of asking Alexa just to set you an alarm you can now request specific songs, genres, artists or playlists to help kick start your day.

A variety of voice commands can be used to set up these alarms.

Amazon Music customers can also preset alarms with music based on their mood, activity, or remembered song lyrics by saying "Alexa, wake me up to relaxing music at 7 am" or "Alexa, set an alarm at 7 a.m.to the song that goes 'I've paid my dues time after time'". Choose your music service, artist, genre, radio station, or song saved in your device.

Steve Boom, Amazon Music VP says, "Music is such an incredible global connector, and with Amazon Music Unlimited we've been able to give listeners access to an extensive catalogue with the added experience of using their own voice to hear music in so many ways with Alexa".

Since first launching in the United States in October of 2016, Amazon Music Unlimited has expanded to the UK, Germany, Austria, Japan and more, transforming music streaming with the ability to just ask Alexa to play music by voice and creating the most natural listening environment for millions of subscribers.

"Alexa, wake me up at [time] to [music]" also works.
