The Echo has speakers suitable for listening to music on, while the Echo Dot has a speaker that is only good enough for the commands and alarms.
If you want to listen to music with the Dot, you’ll want to connect speakers to it.
I have 3 Echo Dots and I’ve grouped them around the house to play the same music.
How do I listen to music on Echo dot?
Then open the Bluetooth settings screen on your mobile device and tap the name listed for your Echo. Your Echo will then be connected. Now when you open a music app on your phone or tablet, you can have it play through your Echo device. You can then control playback with your mobile device or by talking to Alexa.
Is music free on Amazon Echo?
Before, there was no automatic provision for music built into the Echo or Alexa, but you could access Prime Music if you were an Amazon Prime subscriber. However, Amazon has now launched a free tier of its music streaming service (in the US only, for now) that’s ad-supported and available for any Alexa-enabled devices.
Can I play my own music on Alexa?
Play your own music
If your music streaming service isn’t natively supported by Alexa, you can still listen to it through your Alexa speaker — you’ll just need to use Bluetooth. Look for the Alexa speaker in the Bluetooth settings on your phone. Select it to pair and begin streaming music.
Does DOT work without echo?
No you do not need Echo to use Dot, or Dot to use Echo. They are independent of each other. Generally speaking yes. I can’t find anywhere where it says if Dot is Bluetooth 2, 3, 4, 4.1 etc but ya generally speaking they’re all backwards compatible and should work.
