How Long Does Loop Mode Last On Alexa

Music has the remarkable ability to transport us to different times, places, and emotions.

Loop Mode allows you to savor your favorite tracks by playing them repeatedly. But how long does this enchanting musical journey last?

In this article, we’ll delve into the world of Alexa Loop Mode, exploring its functionalities, how to activate and deactivate it, its duration, and whether playlists can join in on the loop.

What is Alexa Loop Mode?

Loop Mode, as the name suggests, is a feature that enables Alexa to continuously replay a single track or a series of tracks in a loop.

This enchanting functionality can create an ambient atmosphere, keep the energy flowing during workouts, or let you fully enjoy a favorite song or piece of music without interruption.

How to Turn on Loop Mode in Alexa?

Activating Loop Mode on Alexa is as simple as uttering a command. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Using Voice Commands: Just say, “Alexa, loop on” or “Alexa, loop mode on,” and your chosen track or playlist will keep playing in an endless loop until you decide to turn it off.
  2. Using the Alexa App: You can also enable Loop Mode through the Alexa app:
  • Open the Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet.
  • Select the music you want to play in loop.
  • Once the music is playing, tap on the “Now Playing” bar at the bottom of the screen.
  • You’ll see the Loop icon – a circular arrow. Tap on it to activate Loop Mode.
  1. Physical Button: Some Alexa devices also have physical buttons that allow you to control playback.

On devices like the Echo Show or Echo Spot, you can tap the Loop icon on the screen during playback to activate continuous looping.

How to Stop Loop Mode in Alexa?

Enjoyed your looped music to your heart’s content? Here’s how to gracefully exit the loop:
