Simply say “Alexa, pair” or “Alexa, Bluetooth on”, and it will start pulsing its blue light and searching.

Tap on its name in the list, and confirm pairing, then when connected, any music or audio from your phone will now play through the Echo as if it was a standard Bluetooth speaker.

To disconnect, just manually select the disconnect option from within the Bluetooth menu on your phone.

Another option is to say “Alexa, disconnect from my phone”.
