AMA­ZON

SmartHouse - - ACCESSORIE­S // MUSIC -

Ama­zon’s mo­bile app has a clean app in­ter­face and sim­ple lay­out, but it’s aw­ful on the web. Voice as­sis­tants have made th­ese apps less im­por­tant, be­cause you can just ask for what­ever you want, but ser­vices should spend more time im­prov­ing their apps.

A mu­sic ser­vice only works when you can use it. In that sense, your choice might al­ready be made for you. Got an iPhone and think­ing about a Home­Pod? Get Ap­ple Mu­sic and use Siri to con­trol it. If you’re an Alexa house­hold, Ama­zon Mu­sic works best. If you’re start­ing from scratch, Spo­tify’s the way to go: It’s prac­ti­cally ubiq­ui­tous across de­vices in­clud­ing Ama­zon’s Echo speak­ers, and the Spo­tify Con­nect fea­ture makes it easy to con­trol what’s play­ing—and where—from within the app.
