Customers in Mexico will join the tens of millions of Amazon Music listeners in more than 40 countries around the world who have the ability to use natural language commands to listen to music, including simply asking Alexa to play the latest single or album from their favorite artist, or to easily find playlists and stations based on a variety of moods and genres, anywhere they go.

- Home from work and want to unwind? Try asking for music by mood, including, “Alexa, play relaxing music.”
- Looking for the latest album by a certain artist? Ask, “Alexa, play the latest album by Camilla Cabello,” and Alexa will play Camilla.
