Playing Spotify music on the Amazon Echo is now as easy as saying three words: "Alexa, Play Spotify." The e-retailer-slash-device-maker launched voice control for the app and two other music services in late January. But, you still had to stream music to the speaker via Bluetooth with a phone or a tablet. Now that Spotify is baked in, Echo can play music from the service directly. The catch? You can only take advantage of the feature if you have a Premium account in the US.

Spotify offers 30 days of free Premium membership if you want to give it a try. In case you decide that being able to quickly play Spotify music on the Echo isn't all that important, though, you can always just continue streaming from your phone. Besides this new feature, Echo can also read books aloud on request, play Jeopardy! with you and even make it easy to order pizza during Super Bowl.
