The Alexa Cast allows users to swiftly switch between voice and Amazon Prime Music app controls. The Prime Music app will now be able to complement it. Additionally, the in-app features on Prime Music (recommended hand-curated playlists, stations, albums, new music) are also set to complement the Alexa music listening experience.
“Alexa Cast is set to make the music streaming experience for Prime members even simpler with its integration in Amazon Prime Music app and Alexa-enabled devices.

Amazon seems keen to add new features to and expand support to Alexa Cast. Currently, it is a good alternative to the Google Cast which also allows users to control audio/ video playback on a smart TV/speaker from your smartphone. We hope the competition between Amazon and Google will bring forward more interesting features in the near future. What do you think of the new update? Let us know in the comments section below.
