How To Setup Alexa for Multi-Room Music

If you’re like us, one of the first things you want to do after purchasing multiple Amazon Echo devices, is to configure them for multi-room music. This enables you to setup groups which contain sets of Echo devices to play the same music throughout your house, or in specific rooms (groups).

Getting Started

In order to setup multi-room music, you’ll need an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot or Echo Show

To get started, open the Alexa App on your phon and click on Settings

After going into Settings, click on Multi-Room Music

The Alexa app will now give you the option to setup a Smart Home Group or an Amazon Multi-Room Music Group. Click on Amazon Multi-Room Music Group.

The next screen asks you to create or choose a suggested group name. For this example, I’ve selected ‘Everywhere’ as the group name. Any Echo devices that are online will then be listed to be selected as part of the group. Select the Amazon Echo devices that you want to be part of the group and click Save.

Finally, you can now play music by saying “Alexa, play [Music Station] on [Group Name]” and the music will be played on the selected devices throughout your house.
