Are There Additional Alexa Multi Room Music Commands?
Right now, multi-room commands are for the most part limited to multi-room music.
You CAN broadcast an announcement to multiple rooms across all of the Echo devices on your network, however.
Try the following:
“Alexa, send announcement”
Alexa will then ask: What’s the announcement?
Try: “Kids come to dinner” or “Attention everyone, the cops are here. It’s time to go.”
Alexa will broadcast your own voice across all of the devices in your network with that announcement. Pretty cool.
A Few Prerequisites
Obviously, you will need to have set up multi-room music in order for this to work.
If you want to play Apple Music using Alexa, you’ll need to have an Apple Music subscription.
You can join Apple Music on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. Once you’ve subscribed, you can then enable the Alexa skill for Apple Music and link your account. You’ll need to sign in with your Apple ID to link your account. If you forgot your Apple ID, like me, here’s how to get it back.
In order to play music using Pandora, you’ll need a Pandora free or Pandora premium subscription and then to enable the Alexa skill for Pandora and then link your account.
You just need to enable the TuneIn skill in order for this to work.
“Alexa, play Patriots.com radio on TuneIn Everywhere”
