So this works for things like asking Alexa for Spotify music by genre now? Or “play My Discover Weekly” playlist? Hoping someone can verify before I go through the whole reset procedure on both my Dots!
Thanks so much for your steps. I've tried a lot of different things in this thread and nothing was able to get my Spotify playlists working on the Echo Dot. I also am using Spotify Premium and Amazon services from Canada.
As you suggested, I tried first by migrating my Amazon Kindle account from US to Canada, repairing Spotify to Dot, and signing in-and-out of the Alexa App on my iPhone. This didn't work. After factory resetting the Echo Dot and repairing it with the Alexa App my playlists finally work. Not sure if the factory reset or the Echo Dot repairing process was what fixed it. What a relief!
The only difference I noticed in our original issues is that I did not see any US music services in the Alexa app (Pandora, etc). However, my Amazon Kindle services were tied to the US store like yours.
Guys - I figured it out - In order for the Canadian Amazon Echo to recognize your playlists, you have to migrate your amazon devices (Kindle, etc) frm the amazon.com account to the amazon.ca account - I did everything in this thread, and nothing worked - but this did! Now it see's my playlists no problem! Detailed instructions found here... Enjoy!
That said, Spotify now has a known bug with genres. While it gets your playlist (including custom ones like Discover weekly), you'll find it can no longer "play dinner music" or "play pop music" or "play jazz". So it's a choice between YOUR playlists (Canadian store) or their genre playlists (US store).
According to both Spotify and Amazon, they're working on it- but it's been about a month like this and they haven't made progress. It will respond "I couldn't find any jazz songs".
Has anyone managed to get Alexa to play own playlists on spotify in Australia? Have tried everything suggested here and still same issue. Does the amazon account need to match the Echo Location or does the amazon account have to be US based even for Australian users?
