Well, Amazon has recently announced support for their echo devices and not only you can connect multiple echo devices with a single app, but there are some added perks to it as well that can help you enjoy them in a better manner.
We all know that the echo device comes equipped with pretty good speakers that can also be used to play music. One of the highly advanced features that you got with the new application was to connect all your speakers together and you can play some music on all of them. Even if the devices are in different rooms or you have them all put together in the same room.
However, the most commonly asked question is that is there any way for you to play different music on multiple Echo devices that are connected over a single application or network.
Play Different Music On Multiple Echo Devices
Is It Possible?
The first question that pops into your mind is that if it is possible for you to make it happen? Yes, it is absolutely possible for you to play different music on multiple Echo devices at once. You can have multiple devices synced in a single app and you can absolutely choose to play different music on each one of them or even group them if you want to. All you need to do is have a device that is compatible with the Alexa application and you don’t need to worry about anything else.
Now, since we are clear on the fact that it is possible for you to play different music on multiple Echo devices, you must be curious about how you can make it happen, and here is how.
How to Activate
Now, we all know that we have the option to connect multiple echo devices with a single app. This way, you will be able to log in to each one of those devices, change their settings, and manage them with ease.
To make the process smoother, it would be better for you to name each of these devices individually. You can name them after the room they are used in, or numbers so it will be easier for you to identify the device that you have in your software while you are trying to control the music on it.
So, you have all the devices set up and connected with your mobile. Things start to get interesting here. You have 3 options now, you can either choose to play the same music for all the devices, group several devices, and play music on them in groups. Or, you have the option to play a separate music track on each of them.
To Play in Group
If you want to group some echo devices and play songs on them, you just need to group them up properly. Under the playback options, you will see the option to select the devices to play music when some track is already playing. You just have to select those devices that you want to play on, and it will start playing the music from your app on the selected devices without any issues.
To Play Individually
Now, here is the part where things get complicated and you will need to do a bit of leg work to make it work efficiently. To start with, there is no method for you to do it in a single place. So, you will need to manually select each device and the track you want to play on it.
You will need to open each connected device that is connected to your app. Once you can access the specific device preference, scroll down to the music playback settings and you will need to select the music that you want to be played on that device.
Repeat the process for all the devices and you will be able to manage individual music on all the devices that are connected with your app.
Be mindful that you will need to disable the multi-room music option as it will simply play the music on all the devices and you don’t want that to happen.
