Now Alexa can help you stay up to date with your favorite bands and musicians.
On Friday, Amazon Music announced the New Release Notifications feature, which lets you follow an artist and then get a notification every time they release a new song or album. The notification will appear on your Amazon Music mobile app or as a yellow light ring on your device.
To follow an artist on your Echo device you can say "Alexa, follow _____ on Amazon Music," or "Alexa, let me know when _____ has new music."
Right now the feature is limited to the US. You must have notifications enabled to receive updates through Alexa or the Amazon Music app.
