Song ID is a function on Alexa that assists users in discovering and identifying new songs.
The process of listening to music via Alexa is often initiated by a particular request. You say something like, “Alexa, play Revolution by the Beatles,” or anything along those lines. However, when Alexa automatically plays the following song that you did not request, issues begin to emerge. For songs that you don’t recognize, you must shout “What song is this?” over the top of the music in order to find out what it is.
Amazon, on the other hand, offers a tool called Song ID that may help with these problems. The goal is that you won’t have to ask (or scream) that question again in your life.
Here’s all you need to know about Song ID in one convenient place.
What is Alexa’s song identification number?
Alexa will announce the artist and title of every song before it begins playing if you have activated Song ID in your settings. This might be very helpful for anybody who enjoys putting on a song and seeing where Alexa takes it. With the exception of Amazon Music, Song ID is only accessible with Amazon Music.
We’re assuming that Amazon has statistics indicating that its customers often ask Alexa what music is currently playing. They will no longer be required to inquire.
How to activate Alexa Song ID on your device
Song ID is enabled by default if you subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited or Prime Music. To enable it, just ask Alexa to turn it on. Alexa will then confirm, and from that point on, it will announce the titles of the songs and the musicians that are going to perform on them as they are being played.
If you want to switch off the function at any moment, just say, “Alexa, turn off Song ID,” and you’ll be able to continue listening undisturbed.
Which devices are compatible with Alexa Song ID?
For the time being, we have only tested it on Amazon’s own Echo devices.
Where can I get Alexa Song ID information?
The function is currently available in the United States and the United Kingdom.
