Once you have your Bluetooth device set up and connected to your Alexa speaker, you can then use commands to easily listen to whatever you like. You can even stop listening, if you’d prefer. It’s a simple and straightforward way to get your mobile device to communicate with your Alexa powered speaker. This is sometimes needed when you don’t want to do too much setting up or link a bunch of accounts through the Alexa app. For streaming services, audio books, and podcasts, command each individual account can become tedious.

How To Connect Alexa To Bluetooth

  • Step 1: Go into your phone’s settings and toggle Bluetooth on. 
  • Step 2: Open the Alexa App and select Devices then Echo & Alexa
  • Step 3: Select the device you want to use.
  • Step 4: Select Bluetooth Devices and then Pair a New Device. Alexa will then search for any devices to pair with and show a list.
  • Step 5: Select the device you want to use. That’s it!

If you do not want to use the app, you can go up to your speaker and say “Alexa, Pair” or “Alexa, Bluetooth On”, and Alexa will go into pairing mode. Your Alexa device will then appear under devices on your mobile phone, and you can select it from there to pair it.

You can then cast any of the things you want to listen to to your Alexa-powered device. Audio books, music, podcasts – you name it. You can also use voice commands like “Alexa, connect to DEVICE NAME” to connect via Bluetooth in the future, which makes things much easier. And if you want to disconnect, you can command using the phrase “Alexa disconnect from DEVICE NAME.” It’s really quite simple once Bluetooth is all set up.
