Creating a new playlist can take time — you have to think of the songs you want to add, search for the titles and manually add them to the playlist you just created. So instead of trying to quickly tap as many songs as possible, just ask your Echo to add them for you. 

While you’re busy doing other things, like household chores or playing video games, 우리카지노총판 just say, “Alexa, create a new playlist.” You’ll need to come up with a name for the playlist, like “Favorite Rock Songs of the ’90s.” If you want to add a song to the playlist, it’ll need to be playing on your smart speaker. So if you want to add Weezer’s Say It Ain’t So to your playlist, 우리카지노계열 you’ll need to request Alexa to play it first and then say, “Alexa, add this song to my playlist.”

Once your playlist is complete and you’re ready to listen to it, just say, “Alexa, play [name of playlist].”
