Amazon announced Tuesday that its virtual assistant Alexa has a new home in the Amazon Music app.

Now, users of the Android and iOS Amazon Music apps in the US, UK, Germany, and Austria can ask Alexa to play songs using voice commands.

There's no word yet on when the feature will roll out to users in other locations.

Previously, you could only search for songs by using the search field in the Amazon Music app.

Much like other devices and apps with Alexa integration, Amazon Music now supports voice commands that Alexa recognizes.

You can ask the virtual assistant to play a specific song from an artist you love, but you can also be more vague with your requests.
