It appears as though Amazon is close to enabling a whole-home-audio feature that will allow customers to synchronize music playback across multiple Amazon Echo and Echo Dot devices, according to a source who has spoken to German blog Caschys (transalation). The blog, which has correctly surfaced information about unreleased Amazon devices and features in the past, claims that internal tests of the new feature have been successful and that we can probably expect the feature to be released soon.
Earlier this year, screenshots of the Alexa app revealing an unreleased audio sycronization feature surfaced on reddit and an Echo web forum. The internal app provided options to group multiple Echo devices together and instructed the user to play music across all selected devices by saying “Alexa, play music everywhere.” Caschys‘ source has described a similar procedure for the upcoming audio synchroniszation feature by claiming that you’ll be able to address a group of Echo devices together with one command.
It’s unknown when this new ability will be released to the general public, but Caschys says testing has been successful and that the feature is ready, so they speculate that it could be released any day.
