Amazon Echo devices are smart speakers, AI-powered by Alexa service you can control it by saying, Alexa. It’s a cloud-based device connected with Wi-Fi. By connecting with an iPhone, you can interact with Alexa and play music collections from Amazon Music, Apple Music, or Spotify.

You can control the volume by saying “raise the volume” or “lower the volume” even you can control the songs by saying “play” or “pause” or “skip” ahead or the back in your playlist of the iPhone.

Remember that if you say your Amazon Echo device that “play the specific song,” the Echo will be disconnected with your iPhone and play it from the default source like Amazon Music or the one you have set as your default Music Player. For your specific choice, you call your iPhone’s personal assistant Siri to play your particular song.
