Amazon recently announced a much-requested feature that turns Alexa devices into speakers for synchronized music – essentially offering whole-home audio.
To start using this now, you need to first create Audio Groups.
To do this, in the Alexa app, go to Settings – Audio Groups/Multi-room Music.
The first time you tap or click on Multi-room Music, the Alexa app will walk you through creating your first audio group.
Name your Group and select the devices that you want to include. You can create a custom group name or use one of the name suggestions that Amazon provides.
Now, when you want to play music on several devices just use the voice command to include your Group name.
Example: “Alexa, play <song name> on 1st floor“
Extra tip: Make sure to create group names that don’t conflict with specific device names.
