You can listen to on demand songs, albums or artists you’ve uploaded to your library. You can also listen to your playlists based on the songs in your library.

  • If you also have a subscription, you need to explicitly ask to play songs, albums, and artists from your library using “Play <song, album, artist or playlist> from my library ” or “Play my <song, album, artist or playlist>." Otherwise you’ll hear subscription on demand content.
  • If you don't have a subscription and are located in the U.S. or Canada, your library content will be prioritized over a station inspired by the song, album or artist you asked for.
  • Note: The "Play <genre, mood or activity>" basic voice command isn't supported for uploaded music.
