Look Out, Sonos: Amazon Echos Now Offer Whole-Home Audio

The feature will initially work with Amazon Music, iHeartRadio and Pandora, and support for Spotify and SiriusXM is rolling out.

The latest barrage of blows happened this morning when Amazon added multi-room audio support to the Alexa app, allowing you to group Amazon Echo devices together - a move that effectively copies Sonos' greatest strength. The recent unavailability and discounts on the device suggests Amazon is gearing up to release a new Echo to rival the upcoming HomePod. Now, you can group them together for synchronized music playback.

One of the key features to Amazon's Alexa-powered speakers - such as its Echo or Lenovo's Smart Assistant - is the ability to playback music and control it with your voice. You'll want to select the Echo devices you want to add to the group.

Amazon's Alexa can now beam music to a specific set of smart speakers in the home, opeing up the capability to blast country music upstairs while sparing the rock fan hanging out below. Now users will be able to play music across their multiple Echo devices around the house. The tools will be released sometime in early 2018. A customer can then use any Alexa-enabled device - for example an Echo Dot - to play music throughout their home on their connected audio systems.

"Sound United is constantly striving to provide consumers with the best possible user experience".

However, as with other Alexa features, expect the functionality of Multi-Room Music to increase. "Listening to great music on Samsung speakers has never been easier". The Connected Speakers API is available today in developer preview and is for brands that already have their own protocols for controlling speakers in multiple rooms.
