Question: Is there a command for Echo to turn music off after a set amount of time? I like to have some relaxation music on when I go to sleep, but stop after 15min/30min/ an hour or so ( so it's not playing all night). Thanks ahead all .
I listen to tech podcasts, many on leo laporte's TWIT network.I have found that these two commands are useful:"Alexa, play the station Tech News Today on TuneIn Radio" and "Alexa, play the podcast This Week In Tech on TuneIn Radio"If I use just use "Alex, play Tech News Today" or "Alexa, This Week in Tech" I get a Flash Briefing from NPR.Oops, now i was just testing this before I posted this and it seems it does understand "Alex, play This Week in Tech". It seems to have learned that it doesn't need the "podcast" and the "Tunein radio" part for that command. Not sure what it is learning... my listening habits or the general user base's listening habits for that relatively popular podcast?Anyway it's nice to be able to call up those podcasts. A few problems though:- The TuneIn radio server doesn't get the podcasts very quickly. There is a day delay between when they would be available on a podcast app. - There is no way to jump forward or backward on the podcast when using TuneIn radio. I don't see a way to jump forward or back on their Android app so I can't imagine it would be available on the Echo.Makes me wonder if there are ways to listen to podcasts without going through TuneIn.
