LiveXLive Media’s Slacker Radio Launches Amazon Alexa ‘Skill’ For Voice-Enabled Music Streaming

LiveXLive Media announced today that Slacker Radio has launched a “Skill” allowing the service to be integrated with Amazon Alexa, the popular voice service that powers Amazon Echo and other Alexa-enabled devices, including Echo Dot, Amazon Tap and Amazon Fire TV. Using Slacker’s Skill, Alexa users can play specific Slacker stations, artist stations, music that fits a mood or genre, and other human-curated original content through simple and intuitive voice commands.

The addition of Slacker Radio to Alexa allows its more than one million monthly active users (MAUs) another integrated access point to enjoy the benefits of Slacker’s streaming service’s personalized stations and catalog of more than 13 million audio tracks.

“Our strategic integration with Amazon Alexa expands our audience reach and brings new capabilities to Slacker, the ‘best kept secret’ in steaming music to the Alexa-enabled household,” said Mike Bebel, EVP, Corporate Development and Rights Management for LiveXLive Media. “This is an exciting time for LiveXLive Media as all kinds of music streaming continues to be embraced at unparalleled rates by consumers, and we believe that our integration with Amazon Alexa further exemplifies our leadership in live music streaming and our commitment to delivering high-quality, curated content to music fans through web, mobile and connected devices, and over-the-top (OTT) applications.”

Jeff loves music. He also loves band t-shirts, which has become something of an obsession. There's a vintage Roxy Music t-shirt on eBay for $299 he is absolutely going to get when he starts making the big bucks.
