Apparel designers Brooks Brothers jumped at the chance to incorporate Amazon's new service for Alexa called Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help manage the various smaller details going on during the company's meetings. Amazon has added a feature to Alexa that lets you wake up to the music of your choice from one of several streaming services, including its own options and Spotify.

Two of Amazon's most popular products are preparing for a massive Christmas price cut - here's what you need to know including how you can save big on the new 4K Amazon Fire TV and Echo Show.

Amazon Music customers can also preset alarms with music based on their mood, activity, or remembered song lyrics by saying "Alexa, wake me up to relaxing music at 7 am" or "Alexa, set an alarm at 7 a.m.to the song that goes 'I've paid my dues time after time'".

A variety of voice commands can be used to set up these alarms. The user can also ask the device to wake you up "every day" to the same song at the same time.
