How to Pair a Bluetooth Device in the Alexa App

  1. Be sure that Bluetooth is enabled on the device you want to pair.
  2. Open the Alexa app for iOS or Android.

  3. Select Devices at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Tap Echo & Alexa.
  5. Choose the speaker to which you want to connect.

  6. Go to the Settings icon and select Bluetooth Devices under Wireless
  7. Select Pair A New Device.
  8. Choose the device from the list of Available Devices.


The speaker will play a tone and say, “Connected to [your device]. Now that you’re paired, just say Connect my phone.”

Alexa will say the same message regardless of the type of device you connect. So, if you’ve paired a computer or tablet, the command to reconnect will still be “Connect my phone,” or simply, “Connect.”

  1. Say “Alexa, pair” to the speaker you want to pair with. Alexa might say, “There are no devices.” Ignore it. The speaker will find your device in step 3.
  2. Alternatively, say, “Alexa, turn on Bluetooth.”

  3. Go to the Bluetooth settings on your phone or device and find the Alexa speaker. It will have an odd name like Echo 74E or OWA. Tap it to connect. It’s possible to rename a Bluetooth device on your iPhone.
  4. The Bluetooth source device (phone, etc.) will pair with the speaker.

Listening to Audio Using Bluetooth to an Amazon Alexa Smart Speaker

Once you’ve completed the pairing process, whenever you want to connect the Echo to your device, as long as Bluetooth device is enabled, you can just use the command, “Connect.” You don’t need to say, “Connect my phone.” If you’ve paired the Echo with multiple devices, it will try to connect with the most recently paired device.

While you can use your phone or source device to choose and control the music playing, you can also use voice commands to the Alexa speaker. Commands include “Play,” “Pause,” “Stop,” “Next song,” “Previous song,” and volume control.

Note that you cannot pair a Bluetooth device to a stereo pair of Echo speakers. If you want to play music in stereo from your phone, you can cast it from the Amazon Music app for iOS or Android. Tapping on the casting icon brings up the options of where to play the music, including stereo pairs.
