Amazon Echo devices now support multi-room audio

Amazon Echo devices now support multi-room audio”

You might set an Echo and an Echo Dot in your bedroom and an office, for example, and name the group "upstairs". Music playback will work from Amazon Music and TuneIn, with support for Spotify said to be "coming soon".

Echo devices, Echo Dot and Echo Show smart speaker systems will support multi-room music in the U.S., U.K., and Germany, starting today.

Merely owning an Amazon Echo could be the impetus you need to turn your regular home into a smart home.

Reid continued: "Today, we're making Alexa even smarter with an all-new feature that lets you play music synchronised on multiple Echo devices to provide room filling music throughout your home". That could potentially impact demand for Apple's device.

This is a big move against Sonos, which has established itself as the go-to multi-room speaker system.

What's quite interesting is that this isn't the first time that you've been able to do a food shop using Alexa, Amazon offers it's own grocery service with Amazon Fresh. It also means you fork out less than Amazon Prime subscribers ($7.99 per month) and non-Prime customers ($9.99). Amazon says it's working with Sonos, Bose, Sound United, and Samsung to pioneer this technology.

The company plans to unveil operations of its AI-based home appliance lineup being controlled by Amazon's voice recognition speaker Amazon Echo at the upcoming tradeshow IFA 2017 that kicks off this Friday in Berlin, Germany. Multi-room audio, that is. Alexa Voice Service (AVS) Multi-Room Music SDK allows device makers to integrate with Amazon Alexa Multi-Room Music; this tool will be available later this year.
