    You can add Spotify music to the long (and growing longer quickly) list of capabilities for the Amazon Echo. If you are a paying member of Spotify's Premium service, then you can setup Spotify to begin using the Echo's voice commands so you can kick off your favorite tunes. That's the third big music streaming service to add support to the Echo, including Amazon Prime & Pandora.

    Here at HQ, we are looking forward to the day when future versions of Echo can connect to even more devices through bluetooth. Imagine using the Echo as a voice command remote for your TV and other entertainment equipment. It's like having a Star Trek-like computer in your home!

    I don't get the excitement or see the use of a device like this.

    I've had mine for just under a year and still use it everyday.
    I'm not a Spotify subscriber, so I won't use this feature, but with Pandora, Prime , iHeart and TuneIn....I'm covered in the music department.

    We've had ours since Christmas and use it almost everyday for music while cooking dinner/cleaning up and also the shopping list comes in very handy. The voice commands for the music are perfect for this when your hands are occupied. Getting weather reports in the morning and asking her to give me a drive report for work is also very convenient.
