Amazon had been asking Canadian brands to show interest in the Alexa platform by building Alexa Skills – third-party voice services that can be enabled on Alexa devices. It looks like it got its wish with several major brands launching Alexa skills to the platform before the end of the year:

In addition to the Echo hardware, Amazon is releasing its Prime Music service to Canada. That allows members of the Amazon Prime service to access the cloud music service at no additional cost. Amazon is also making a Smart Home store available on its e-commerce site.

It’s Ok Amazon, Canada is used to being snubbed (not really). Amazon launched their widely anticipated music streaming service yesterday and like their streaming video service, it’s not…

So you got yourself an Amazon Echo and you live in Canada. What’s next? Even though Amazon has not yet officially announced the Amazon Echo platform in Canada,…

To start, Amazon Echo works almost completely the same in Canada as it does in the states. You can use almost all of the same apps (called ‘skills’) and there’s no…

It may be a World Wide Web, but there are still many reasons that companies choose to launch in other countries — or consider our country an afterthought.

Our relatively small population is one obvious reason, but we are one of the web savviest countries in the world with a fairly advanced user base. Some of these services will likely get around to launching in Canada, while others can find ways of making more revenue by staying out.

The company’s service was in Canada for years, before pulling up virtual stakes in 2007 reportedly over difficulty obtaining music rights. Pandora recently bought the assets of Rdio , and one of the things that likely appealed was the fact that it was available in more than 60 countries, which that has fuelled rumours of international expansion for Pandora.

The current, and 23rd, Prime Minister of Canada is the Liberal Party 's Justin Trudeau , who was appointed on November 4, 2015, by Governor General David Johnston , following the general election that took place that year .

The position of prime minister is not outlined in any Canadian constitutional document and is mentioned only in passing in the Constitution Act, 1982 , [4] [5] and the Letters Patent, 1947 issued by King George VI . [6] The office and its functions are instead governed by constitutional conventions and modelled on the same office in the United Kingdom .

The prime minister, along with the other ministers in cabinet , is appointed by the governor general on behalf of the monarch. [7] However, by the conventions of responsible government , designed to maintain administrative stability, the viceroy will call to form a government the individual most likely to receive the support, or confidence, of a majority of the directly elected members of the House of Commons ; [8] as a practical matter, this is often the leader of a party whose members form a majority, or a very large plurality, of Members of Parliament (MPs).

Amazon Echo is designed around your voice. It's always on—just ask for information, music, news, weather, and more. Echo begins working as soon as it hears you say the wake word, "Alexa."

So I have been trying over the last few days to access the New Prime Music... but haven't been able to access it, however I figured it was either my content settings & country re: having echo set up ... or it was my VPN.

So yesterday I went in and changed my content settings to Canada, and transferred my digital content etc... Still no joy.

Remember all those rumors about Amazon launching a music streaming service? Well, they were absolutely true: Amazon pulled back the curtain on Prime Music earlier today, which gives paying Prime subscribers access to over a million songs for no additional cost and without a single obnoxious ad in earshot. Amazon Digital Music VP Steve Boom told us that customers have been clamoring for this little development for ages now -- here are a few answers to the burning questions surrounding Amazon's newest media play.

Assuming you've already paid Amazon for the year, you can use one of its existing Cloud Player apps for iOS, Android, OS X, Windows and the web to start digging through that catalog of free tracks. Speaking of which, doesn't the name "Cloud Player" seem a little clunky? Amazon seemed to think so, because all those apps will fly under the new "Amazon Music" banner starting today. If you've got a Kindle Fire HD or HDX kicking around, they'll get an automatic update that grants them access to that gratis music -- we're keeping our eyes peeled and will update you once it goes live.​

There are already plenty of streaming services out there, but Amazon's lateness to the game only means it had time to figure out what its rivals were getting right. You can, for example, save high-quality Prime tracks to your device for offline listening (take that Pandora). Itching for the perfect party mix? You can check out curated playlists for specific moods and activities (sorry Songza).
