Amazon has yet again outdone themselves with their gadgets, specifically the Alexa Voice Assistant and their Echo devices. Working with renowned speaker makers such as Sonos, Bose, Samsung and Sound United, they have come up with a new feature for the Alexa voice assistant. Alexa can now play music on multiple Amazon Echo Devices. The set up of this is quite easy actually. think of it as sending music to individuals on a WhatsApp group. All you have to do is create a group with multiple devices and come up with a group name. When you ask Alexa to play music to that group, you are essentially playing music from all the Echo devices at the same time.
Amazon has also announced further plans to improve the features for its Alexa Voie assistant. In partnering with the likes of Bose, Samsung, Sonos and Sound United, they plan to include the use of third party speakers to the multi-room audio feature of Alexa. This will be enabled by the Alexa Voice Music Room software development kit (SDK). SDK essentially allows music devices to pick up Alexa music. This will also allow people to play whatever music and control their playlist across connected speaker systems from their Alexa devices.
