If you are someone who enjoys introducing friends and family to new artists and music here's some good news for you. Amazon has added a new music sharing feature that will allow you to share music on Echo devices through the Amazon Alexa app.

Users can share songs with their Alexa contacts on their Echo devices now. If you are listening to a song and want to share it with someone, all you need to do is to say - "Alexa share this song with (the contact's name)”. Alexa will then send the song to the contact you just mentioned. The person you have shared the song with will be able to listen to it on their Echo devices and can also send back a reaction.

When someone shares a song with you, Alexa is going to notify you on your Echo device and the Alexa app. To listen to the song that's been shared, you can just ask Alexa for your messages and once she reads out the one with the shared song, you will be asked if you want to hear the song that's been shared with you. You can also just tap on the mobile push notification sent from your Alexa app to choose which device you want to listen to your song on.

To get this going you will need to have the Alexa Communications on your account enabled. If it is not enabled already, go to your Alexa app and then to the Communicate tab. Enable it here. Once this is done you can share a song with any contact who also has an Echo device and the Alexa app. To check who all you can share music with, you can tap on “new message” from the Communicate tab and see a list of contacts.

When you receive a song, Alexa will find the same song on either your default music streaming service or on another streaming service available to you. If a matching song cannot be found, Alexa is going to suggest a station based on the song's title and the artist's name.

Amazon said in the announcement that they will keep evolving this feature over time.
