E-commerce giant, Amazon has made a decision to give the users of its Alexa-powered range of devices an early Christmas gift by deciding to roll out a new feature which will let you set the music of your choice as an alarm to wake you up in the morning or for any other task.

Today, the company is adding a new feature that will make the Spot - or any other Alexa device - function more like a traditional radio alarm clock, with the introduction of music alarms.

Amazon Music playlists including "The Twenty" and "Introducing" are custom-tailored for new territories by Amazon Music experts.

All Alexa users can take advantage of this feature.

You can sign-up to a free 30-day trial to Amazon Prime to try out the service and more. With it, you can tell Alexa to set an alarm that will wake you up using a specific artist, radio station, genre of music, or song from one of multiple apps. Alternatively, you can ask Alexa to wake you up with songs or radio stations from Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, SiriusXM and iHeartRadio.

Palestinians to snub Pence during visit over Jerusalem move
Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim-majority country, has been a longstanding supporter of Palestinian independence. Erdogan said in a speech in the central Turkish city of Sivas.

A variety of voice commands can be used to set up these alarms. The option also exists to wake up to news by saying, for example, "to BBC News".

Users can ask Alexa to wake them up at the time that they prefer with a song.

To set Alexa to wake you up with a certain track, artist or genre, say: "Alexa, wake me up at [time] with [track name/artist etc]".

The company had recently announced the office-friendly Alexa allowing the businesses to buy the supported devices for helping the employees to dial into the conference calls, manage their calendars, find open meeting rooms along with other work supplies from Amazon to reduce their daily hassle.
