Basic Story Playback Commands

In this article, we'll go over some of the commands that you can use while the Alexa is playing a story track, i.e; when your Alexa enabled devices such as Echo, Echo Show or Mobile app is actively playing a story at the moment!

While there is an active playback going on, try saying one of the following commands to 'Stop' or 'Pause' the playback.

"Alexa, Stop"

"Alexa, Pause"

"Alexa, Cancel"

Resuming Playback

To resume playback of a story, trying saying the following:

"Alexa, Resume"

Note: When resuming, the Story Stream Skill automatically resumes the playback of the track from where you had left the previous time.

Start over Track

At any time to start over the track from the beginning, try saying any of the following:

"Alexa, Start over"

"Alexa, play from the beginning"

Skip to Next Story
