16 Amazon Playlists To Tell Alexa To Play, Depending On Your Mood

By this point in our technological advancement I assume nothing will shock me — that is, until teleportation becomes a thing. Still, I am constantly surprised with what cool things people will come up with next, such as when Amazon introduced Amazon Echo, a device that makes your life easier through verbal commands. Now you have a huge selection of playlists to tell Alexa to play while she searches for a restaurant near your house. You are living in the future.

Alexa has the ability to control your room's temperature, lights, and other switches. All you have to do is tell her! She can hear you from across the room and can play music with immersive, 360º omni-directional audio. Not too shabby! The best part is that Amazon has provided us with countless playlists brimming with catchy tunes by your favorite artists. Whatever your mood might be, Alexa has you covered.

Amazon Echo, $180, Amazon

The little column almost looks like a pretty knick-knack that you keep around your house for decoration. Then you turn it on and it becomes your best friend. Unwind after a long day by listening to an audiobook, or catch up on some news from the major publications out there (let's face it, you most likely aren't reading the physical copy at the moment). With Alexa you get to live in the future. And who doesn't want to live in the future?! So kick back and enjoy some of the Amazon playlists that Alexa can play for you. There is one guaranteed to fit your mood.

(Note: just in case you don't know how to get Alexa to play these, say, "Alexa, play [Name Of Playlist]," and you're all set!)
