Amazon’s Alexa can now create and modify Music Playlists

Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant has a wide variety of music-related capabilities, but when it came to playlists, it couldn’t do anything but play them, that is, until today. You can now ask Alexa to create a playlist on the fly by saying “Create a playlist called [Playlist Name].” To add a song to any playlist, say “Add this song to my [Playlist Name] playlist” while the song is playing. You can also add a song and create a new playlist in one go by saying “Add this song to a new playlist named [Playlist Name].” There doesn’t seem to be a way to add a song to a playlist by name while it is not currently being played. You are also unable to remove songs from playlists using Alexa, nor are you able to delete a playlist entirely. Those tasks will still need to be done through Amazon’s website or apps. Alexa’s new playlist capabilities work with Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited.

    Great news! I used to shuffle my collection and when a song would come on that I really liked, I’d have to ask “Alexa, what song is this?” then grab my phone, open Amazon Music, find the song in question, then add it to a Playlist. This will make things much, much easier! Thanks!
