How to use Alexa as a speaker

Do you need a speaker to play the music that you want to play in your room but you still don’t have one? Nevertheless, you can still play your favorite music if you have an Amazon Echo.

In order to answer your questions or to listen to podcasts, Amazon Echo is an Alexa-enabled smart speaker that is capable of performing a variety of functions from setting up smart home devices to answering your questions. It’s not always about the speaker, though. For some people, a speaker is all they need.

If you follow the instructions below, you will be able to pair your Amazon Echo with your smartphone, allowing you to use it as a Bluetooth speaker to make your phone sound better.

Here are some simple steps you can take to turn your Echo into a speaker:

  1. If you want to make sure Bluetooth is on on your iPhone, you need to go to the settings app and then click Bluetooth. If it appears on the oval next to Bluetooth, the oval next to Bluetooth will be green and you will have the option to “My Devices” or “Other Devices” underneath Bluetooth. When you tap the circle next to Bluetooth, you will be able to turn it on. You may have to follow a different set of steps depending on the device that you are using to complete this step.

  2. When you are within earshot of your Amazon Echo, say “Alexa, pair” or “Alexa, turn on Bluetooth,” so that the Amazon Echo can hear you. You will now be able to pair your Echo with other devices. The Bluetooth menu on your phone will then show you the device listed under “Other Devices” and a blue flashing light will appear as well.

  3. You can connect Echo to your iPhone by selecting “Other Devices” under the “Other Devices” section.

The Echo will act as a Bluetooth speaker once it has been connected. Say “Alexa, disconnect my phone from the internet” if you want to disconnect.

Using your Echo as a Bluetooth speaker should be a lot easier once your phone is paired once with your Echo. You can connect your phone to your Echo when you want to by just saying “Alexa, connect to my phone” whenever you need to do so.

The second thing you might want to try is activating Super Alexa mode once you have worked out how to turn Alexa into a speaker.
