How to Play and Sync Music on Multiple Amazon Echos

September 30, 2020 | Tutorial | Lex

If you have more than one Amazon Echo device, you can play the same music on all your devices at the same time.

The Amazon Echo is one of the best entertainment devices you can buy for your home. And if you have more than one Amazon Echo device, there are few ways you can use the devices in tandem.

Whether you put your Amazon Echos in different rooms or you want to get all your Echos to play the same music in one room, once it’s set up, it’s as simple as issuing a voice command to play your music.

How To Set Up Multi-Room Music On Amazon Echo

This feature, called Multi-Room Music, can only be set up by the person who registered the devices. You will need to set it up to play music on multiple Echos.

  1. To set up the feature, open the Alexa app on your phone and go to the Devices tab at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Hit the + icon in the top right-hand corner.
  3. Select Add Multi-Room Music Speakers.
  4. Choose your speakers from the list.
  5. Enter a group name.

After a few minutes, your Echo devices should be connected.

If you have more than two Echo devices, you can set up multiple groups, pairing specific devices together, excluding the devices you don’t want to play music on simultaneously.

How To Play Music On Multiple Amazon Echos

Once the Multi-Room Music feature is set up, playing music is as simple as issuing a simple voice command. Just say:

  • “Play [music selection] on [group name].”

You can also specify which service you want to use to play the music by saying:

  • “Play [music selection] on [group name] on Spotify.”

The feature works with the following music services:

  • Amazon Music Unlimited (Individual plan or Family plan)
  • Amazon Prime Music
  • Amazon Music
  • Spotify
  • Third-party services like TuneIn and iHeartRadio

It won’t work, however, with any Bluetooth audio, as it disables Bluetooth connections while in use.

And remember, if you decide to listen to music with just one Amazon Echo, there are plenty of other ways to play music on your Amazon Echo.
