This fall, Amazon made a play to become your new alarm clock with the introduction of a combination smart speaker and clock called the Echo Spot. Today, the company is adding a new feature that will make the Spot - or any other Alexa device - function more like a traditional radio alarm clock, with the introduction of music alarms. According to Amazon, Alexa device owners can now choose to wake up to music from their preferred streaming service, including Amazon's own Prime Music or Amazon Music Unlimited, as well as others supported by its devices, including Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, SiriusXM and iHeartRadio. The feature works similarly to how you request music today via Alexa - that is, you can ask for artist names, songs, playlists, genres, or even by song lyrics, in the case that you don't know the song's title.
