How to Set Music as Alarm on Alexa in Amazon Echo Devices

Every morning you wake up to the same, old monotonous Alarm tone that rings on your Echo devices. This obviously makes your morning boring.

You wish you could add your favourite songs to Alexa so that your Echo device plays that music as wake-up alarm. For this, you need to give Alexa a simple command and the voice assistant will set your favourite song as music alarms. So here is how to set music as alarm on Alexa in Amazon Echo Devices

Note that you can choose songs to add music as alarm on Alexa from different music services you have subscribed for. If, for example, you have Amazon Music, Pandora, and Spotify, you can use songs from any of the services.

However, you need to set at least one music service as your default music service on Alexa, so that the intelligent speaker doesn’t go place to place to find your choice of music to set it as alarms.
