If you don’t have a Spotify account but have friends over who do, they can use their own subscription easily. Follow the below steps to get hooked up:

  • Have your friend connect to your Wi-Fi
  • Command Alexa to Spotify Connect. Alexa will then search for another Spotify account on your Wi-Fi network and then connect to it, allowing them to play music from their collection.
