Amazon has further combined its Alexa voice companion and its Music service by allowing customers to follow their favorite artists and be notified when they release new music.
This capability requires a couple things:
- You have notifications turned on for Alexa using the Alexa mobile app
- You have the Amazon Music app installed and notifications turned on there
To follow an artist, just say…
“Alexa, follow <artist name>”
Alexa will confirm you are following the artist. This works just like other notifications. The Echo ring will turn yellow and you need to ask “Alexa, what are my notifications?”
