Play Music on Multiple Echo Devices

Learn how to use Multi-Room Music to play music on multiple Echo devices at the same time.

Video: Multi-Room Music

You can synchronize music playback across your compatible Echo devices (Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show) by creating Multi-Room Music groups in the Alexa app.

To create a Multi-Room Music group in the Alexa app:

  1. Go to the menu and select Smart Home.
  2. Select Groups.
  3. Select Create Group.
  4. Select Multi-Room Music.
  5. You can use the drop-down menu at the top of the screen to choose a preset name for your group. Or, if you want to create a customized name for the group, select the Custom Name option and enter the name in the text box.
  6. Use the check boxes to select the Echo devices you want to add to the group. Then select Create Group.

After you've created your group, you'll see it listed as “Enabled” under Groups in the Smart Home menu.

You can then ask Alexa to play music through your group--for example, say, “play (song / album / playlist / etc.) on (group name)”, and your music will play simultaneously through each device in the group.

Tip: You can also start and stop playback or control the volume for all devices in the group by saying things like, “play,” “pause,” or “set volume for (group name) to (level).” At this time, you can't use your voice to rewind or fast-forward during Multi-Room Music playback.

Keep in mind that Multi-Room Music plays directly through the speakers on your Echo devices. You can also listen through external speakers, as long as they're linked to your Echo device(s) using a wired connection.

External speakers connected via Bluetooth and the Alexa Voice Remote for Echo do not currently work during Multi-Room Music playback. Once you stop playing music through your group, your Bluetooth speakers and/or remote will work with the paired Echo device once again, like usual.

Note:

  • 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 a single device or Multi-Room group at one time. When you’re listening through a Multi-Room Music group, all the devices in that group access the same stream and play the same title simultaneously. You can’t stream different music on multiple devices or on more than one Multi-room Music groups at the same time, unless you have an Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan.
