Sirius announced on Tuesday morning that Sirius XM is now available from any subscriber's device that has Alexa installed, including the Echo.

That means you can finally play your favorite stations at home, much like you would in your car, without having to buy a separate Sirius XM player. It's just as easy as calling up Spotify or any other music service.

Here's a quick how-to guide that'll help you get up and running.

Open the Alexa app on your smartphone.

Tap the menu button on the top-left side of the display

Tap "Skills"

Search for "Sirius"

Tap Sirius and then tap "Enable"

You'll be brought to a website. Sign in with your Sirius account.

That's it!

Now just ask Alexa to play the station you want. Example commands include "Alexa, play Classic Vinyl on SiriusXM" and "Alexa, play "Bruce Springsteen Radio on SiriusXM."
