Your Amazon Echo possesses many skills and abilities, but its career as a DJ is probably at the top of the list. Through your Echo, you can listen to music in a variety of ways, through many different sources. And the process is the same no matter which Echo device you own.
If you’re looking to stream your own media library through an Echo device, Amazon doesn’t make it easy. Previously, you could upload music to Amazon Music Storage for playback on Echo devices, but Amazon killed that service in early 2019. Now your best bet is to stream music via Bluetooth from your PC (more on that below) or connect to a service like Plex.
As a result, the easiest way to listen to music on an Echo device is through a music-streaming service. By default, your Echo will link to Amazon Music. If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can snag more than 2 million songs from Prime Music for free, or 60 million if you upgrade to Amazon Music Unlimited. But you can also access other popular services and wirelessly stream music to your Echo device from your mobile phone, tablet, or computer. Here’s how.
