This​ ​guide​ ​will​ ​walk​ ​you​ ​through​ ​the​ ​process​ ​of​ ​setting​ ​up​ ​and​ ​enabling​ ​new​ ​skills​ ​on​ ​your Alexa-enabled​ ​Amazon​ ​Echo​ ​device.

Step​ ​1:​ Download the Alexa App

​Download​ ​the​ ​Alexa​ ​App in the Google Play store or Apple I-tunes store. Most​ ​Echo​ ​users​ ​set​ ​up​ ​their​ ​devices​ ​and​ ​enable​ ​new​ ​skills​ ​using​ ​the​ ​Alexa​ ​app​ ​on​ ​either​ ​an Apple​ ​or​ ​Android​ ​smartphone​ ​or​ ​tablet.

If​ ​you​ ​would​ ​prefer​ ​to​ ​use​ ​a​ ​desktop​ ​computer​ ​or​ ​laptop​ ​to​ ​set​ ​up​ ​your​ ​device,​ ​visit amazon.com/echosetup​.   The​ ​setup​ ​process​ ​in​ ​the​ ​app​ ​or​ ​on​ ​the​ ​website​ ​will​ ​include​ ​informative​ ​tutorials​ ​that​ ​will​ ​teach you​ ​the​ ​basics​ ​of​ ​your​ ​new​ ​Echo​ ​device​ ​and​ ​explain​ ​how​ ​to​ ​enable​ ​new​ ​skills.

Step​ ​2:​ ​Enable​ ​your​ ​radio​ ​station’s​ ​skill

All​ ​of​ ​the​ ​impressive​ ​things​ ​that​ ​Alexa​ ​can​ ​do​ ​through​ ​your​ ​Echo device​ ​are​ ​called​ ​“skills.”​ ​There​ ​are​ ​hundreds​ ​of​ ​skills​ ​available for​ ​your​ ​Echo​ ​via​ ​the​ ​Alexa​ ​app,​ ​you​ ​just​ ​need​ ​to​ ​enable​ ​them​ ​in order​ ​to​ ​use​ ​them.

From​ ​the​ ​main​ ​menu​ ​(the​ ​three​ ​horizontal​ ​lines​ ​in​ ​the​ ​top​ ​left corner​ ​of​ ​the​ ​app),​ ​select​ ​“Skills.”​ ​In​ ​the​ ​search​ ​box​ ​at​ ​the​ ​top, type​ ​the​ ​name​ ​of​ ​your​ ​favorite​ ​radio​ ​station.

In​ ​the​ ​search​ ​results,​ ​identify​ ​the​ ​correct​ ​skill​ ​for​ ​your​ ​radio station​ ​of​ ​choice.

The​ ​italicized​ ​phrase​ ​below​ ​that​ ​is​ ​the​ ​voice​ ​command​ ​you’ll give​ ​Alexa​ ​to​ ​play​ ​the​ ​station​ ​once​ ​you’ve​ ​enabled​ ​the​ ​skill.

Click​ ​the​ ​station​ ​logo​ ​to​ ​continue.

From​ ​there,​ ​click​ ​the​ ​“Enable”​ ​button​ ​and​ ​the​ ​skill​ ​will automatically​ ​load​ ​onto​ ​your​ ​Echo​ ​device.

You​ ​can​ ​now​ ​start​ ​streaming​ ​the​ ​radio​ ​station​ ​immediately​ ​using the​ ​station’s​ ​voice​ ​command.​ ​So for​ ​example,​ ​“Alexa,​ ​Start Froggy Valley One Hundred Point One” or “Alexa, Start Big Wilbur Twelve Seventy”.
