How to connect Alexa to a Bluetooth speaker or Phone

You can connect Alexa to Smart Family Equipment via Bluetooth which lets you control them from your phone.

It is also possible to connect the smart speaker via Bluetooth to the cell phone and control the playback through the device, even with the downloaded songs, dispensing with internet streaming.

There are two ways to make the connection: the first is by voice command and the second by the Alexa app on your cell phone. Both options require Echo to be connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Bluetooth Pairing Echo with Phone via Alexa voice command:

1. On your phone, go to the Bluetooth settings screen to pair a new device;

2. Command to Echo Alexa, “Connect with Bluetooth“, it will start searching while the LED ring turns blue;

3. At this point, Echo should appear in the device list, tap to connect.

That’s it, you have paired Echo with your phone using Alexa.
