Title: Nice Surprises I discovered
Post by: George Jetson on July 14, 2015, 03:27:32 pm
While listening to Pandora music I simply say "Alexa I like this song" or "Alexa thumbs up" she will respond back with "OK, Ratings Saved"   Any other nice discoveries?  If so I'd love to hear more.  :)

That is definitely a solid feature, GJ.  Thanks for posting it.

I discovered that Alexa does not allow you to shuffle Pandora when you ask her.  There is a work around.  If you use the App and go to Pandora and choose "Shuffle" she will begin to shuffle your stations.  Now when you tell Alexa to "Play Pandora" she will respond back with "Playing your last Pandora Station, Shuffle"  She will continue to shuffle your stations each time you ask her to Play Pandora.  This will stop when you ask for a specific station.   ;)

Thank you for this.  I wasn't using the Pandora app because of this.

Like, dislike, thumbs up and thumbs down works for Prime Music as well. :)

I tried that but then she stopped playing it. I had to remind her it was playing.  LOL!!
