Can you have multiple Spotify accounts on Alexa?
You can have multiple Spotify accounts on Alexa.
But take note…
This isn’t an official feature of your Echo device.
So if you want to create this type of setup…
It’s best to consider the process as a tip or hack.
But don’t worry. Setting up different Spotify accounts will only take you a couple of minutes.
“If it’s not an official feature, how can I do it?”
Let me explain.
Since each Amazon account can only connect to 1 Spotify account…
You need to create a different Amazon account for each Spotify that you want to connect.
“Is setting up multiple Spotify accounts worth it?”
It all depends on what your needs are.
But setting up different Spotify accounts for different people certainly has its advantages.
And if you’re wondering what they are…
What are the advantages of having multiple Spotify accounts on Alexa?
The advantages of having multiple Spotify accounts on Alexa are as follows:
#1: You won’t depersonalize your Spotify account
When different people use the same Spotify account…
The app’s recommended music and playlists start to go all over the place.
And what do I mean by that?
Imagine listening to the calming instrumental music that Spotify recommended to you.
It’s exactly the type of music you want. And Spotify knows that.
But all of a sudden…
The song switches to hard rock music from the 80s.
Turns out, it’s your sibling’s kind of music.
And because he’s also using your account on Alexa…
Spotify recommended it too.
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mean to say that hard rock music isn’t good because they are.
But I’m just saying…
It’s much better if Spotify recommends you the songs you actually prefer, right?
Instead of it mixing your music preferences with someone else’s.
Now, having separate Spotify accounts will guarantee that…
Your account will remain personalized to you.
And you won’t have to worry about being unfamiliar with the playlists on your own account.
Moreover, it’ll also let you…
#2: Play different songs in different rooms
If you have multiple Echo speakers…
You probably know that you can play the same song through them simultaneously.
But did you know that when using multiple Spotify accounts…
You can start to play different songs in different rooms?
This is a big advantage. That’s if you and another household member want to blast different songs at the same time.
All you need to do is grab an Echo speaker each.
And tell Alexa to switch to your personal Amazon account.
So if you’re interested in trying this setup now, I’m all up for helping you.
