Alexa-enabled speakers are your best option for Amazon Music Unlimited

Amazon Music Unlimited is a subscription service that gives you access to tens of millions of songs, as well as playlists and personalized "radio" stations. Of course, your best option for listening to your Amazon Music Unlimited is on an Alexa-enabled smart speaker.

Your best option for Alexa-enabled speakers is the Amazon Echo line, which includes the Amazon Echo, Echo Plus, Dot, and Tap, as well as the Spot, Show, and Dot Kids Edition. All of these speakers have Alexa functionality built right in, and all you have to say is "Alexa, play me some music," and so long as you have a Music Unlimited, your speaker will start playing tunes.

You can also ask Alexa to play specific artists, songs, albums, or genres, and having an Alexa-enabled speaker is the best way to do that seamlessly. You could just listen on your phone and broadcast it to any old speaker via Bluetooth, but to get the full experience, you'll want an Alexa-enabled speaker.

Best third-party Amazon Music-enabled speakers

Amazon has a specific list of supported devices that are guaranteed to work with Amazon Music Unlimited. If you want a third-party option, you'll have to pick from this list:

  • Sonos
  • Bose SoundTouch
  • HEOS
  • Bluesound
  • Play-Fi
