With more than 71 million subscribers, Spotify is one of the most popular streaming music services and it has supported people to play Spotify music on Alexa devices for a long while. So it's natural that you'd love to play Spotify music via an Alexa-enabled speaker, because it’s convenient that you can ask Alexa to play certain songs, artists, genres, playlists and more from Spotify, and even have it lull you to sleep at night. But how can we stream Spotify Music on Alexa devices? The following will show you two ways about this.
Before you get to start with this method, make sure you’ve got these: Spotify Premium Account, Alexa speaker which can play Spotify music, a phone/tablet with Alexa app.

Please download the Alexa app on your phone or tablet, then launch it.
Click the “Setting” button on the left side, and then click “Music & Media” on the right side.
Then there will be a list of music streaming services (supported by Alexa) showing up. And please click “Link Account on Spotify”. Then a window will pop up next, and please click “Log In To Spotify” to link your Spotify account to Alexa.
2 Set Spotify as Default Music Service
Back to the “Setting” screen, click the “Choose default music service” button and select Spotify as the default music service.
3 Play Spotify Music on Alexa
