Another way is to link your phone and use the Alexa as a speaker.
Is Spotify Better Than Amazon Music?
Amazon Music Unlimited/Prime Music gives you access to around 40 million music tracks whilst Spotify boasts over 35 million to choose from. That's a difference of just 5 million, but might be enough to sway your opinion as to who is the best.
Both can be used with Alexa devices, so it's really down to personal choice.
