BBC launches full voice service for Echo devices

By issuing the correct voice commands, Alexa will wake up users with the song, playlist, or news channel of their choice.

An update to Alexa's capabilities has now made it possible for Amazon Echo smart speakers to function like the radio alarm clocks of the past. Alternatively, you can ask Alexa to wake you up with songs or radio stations from Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, SiriusXM and iHeartRadio.

The second generation Amazon Echo DOT has just been released in Canada. Choose your music service, artist, genre, radio station, or song saved in your device. This functionality covers multiple music services, including the company's own Amazon Music app (if you're a subscriber). It also comes with the Alexa Voice Remote which, yes, will let you use Alexa to search for programmes.

Actually, you could do such already but this time, Alexa can help set the time and the specific music you want to wake up to.

To set Alexa to wake you up with a certain track, artist or genre, say: "Alexa, wake me up at [time] with [track name/artist etc]".
