With the release of Audio Groups – Amazon’s whole-home audio synchronization feature – there are some service and feature caveats you should be aware of. We’ve covered a few other functional limitations already about Bluetooth, Amazon Tap, multiple group support, single network limitation, and voice command restrictions.
This particular tip comes from the result of many complaints in the communities about which services that Audio Groups supports – particularly after they’ve setup their own Audio Groups only to find that those devices left out of the group cannot play music when a group of devices is playing.
- Multi-Room Music groups only support music playback. Other media and audio, like Flash Briefings, Kindle books, and content from Alexa skills (including Sirius XM), are not supported at this time.
- You can stream Amazon Music Unlimited and Prime Music titles to all of the devices in your Multi-Room group at the same time. However, you can’t stream different music on each device separately (unless you have the Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan).
