Music Playback: Due to restrictions imposed by Amazon, music playback through voice commands is limited to 3rd party skills that support music. Voice commands cannot be used to play music from Amazon, and popular services such as Pandora and Spotify. However, you can launch music by opening Amazon’s Alexa app or visiting alexa.amazon.com and choosing something for Ultimate Alexa to play.
