Why Alexa Won't Play Music: Troubleshooting Tips


If you're having trouble getting Alexa to play music, don't worry - you're not alone. This is a common issue that many people experience. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the most common causes of this problem and provide some troubleshooting tips that should help resolve the issue.

 

One of the most common reasons why Alexa won't play music is because the device is not connected to a Wi-Fi network. In order to stream music, your Echo device needs to be connected to a Wi-Fi network. If you're not sure if your device is connected, you can check by asking Alexa to "connect to Wi-Fi."

 

If your device is already connected to a Wi-Fi network, but you're still having trouble playing music, it's possible that there's a problem with the connection itself. One way to test this is by asking Alexa to play a song from a different streaming service. For example, if you're trying to play a song from Amazon Music, try asking Alexa to play a song from Spotify. If Alexa is able to play a song from Spotify, but not Amazon Music, then there's likely an issue with your Amazon Music account or the Amazon Music app.

 

If you're still having trouble playing music after trying these troubleshooting tips, please contact customer support for further assistance.

Additional Troubleshooting Tips For Alexa Not Playing Music

 

If you're still having trouble getting Alexa to play music, there are a few additional troubleshooting tips you can try.

 

First, check the volume level on your Echo device. If the volume is turned all the way down, Alexa won't be able to play any music. To adjust the volume, just say "Alexa, turn up/down the volume."

 

Next, try moving your Echo device closer to the speaker it's connected to. If the connection is weak, Alexa may have trouble playing music.

To do this, go to the Settings menu in the Alexa app and then select Music & Media. From there, you should see a list of all the apps that are connected to your Echo device. Make sure that the switch next to each app is turned on.

 

Finally, if you're still having trouble, you can try resetting your Echo device
