Tip: Casting Music to an Alexa Device Using the Amazon Music App

Amazon has now added a personally requested feature to its Amazon Music app. The feature is a logical next step, and probably should’ve existed already. However, you can now use the Amazon Music app to “cast” music to an Alexa-enabled device you own.

To use the feature, locate an album or song in the Amazon Music app, tap the “cast” button at the bottom of the display, and then choose your Alexa speaker from the registered device list supplied.

Once the song is playing on the Alexa device, you can then use the normal music controls (play, fast forward, rewind, etc.) to manage the audio.
