You can now link up your Amazon Echo speakers to play music in multiple places

To get started, you'll need to have the Amazon Alexa app on your phone and be signed-in to it. For example, a user can say "Alex, play classical music for studying", or "Alexa, play the new Justin Bieber song". Starting today, Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show smart speakers will support mutii-room music in the U.S., U.K, and Germany. A new Alexa Voice Service Multi-Room Music software development kit (SDK) will let hardware makers enable multi-room Alexa music on devices that incorporate Alexa directly through the Alexa Voice Service (AVS). Apart from the South Korean tech giant, Amazon is now also collaborating with Bose, Sonos, and Sound United whose devices are set to support this functionality in the near future.

At this point, the feature works with Amazon Music, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, and Pandora.

You can now listen to Amazon Music - and other services - simultaneously across multiple Echo devices.

The weird trend for voice controlled home assistants - which hasn't died off at time of writing - is about to receive a boost for adopters in the United Kingdom, as posh shopping coordinator Ocado has launched an app for Amazon Alexa.

Cashed-up CBS could shake up Australian television
CBS is expected to proved financial support immediately to make sure creditors are taken care of, and continue daily operations. The CBS Corporation is listed on the New York Stock Exchange with a current market capitalisation of about USA $28 billion.

Clarkson's got pneumonia, so Amazon needs someone to step in while he recovers. Amazon is has released another API to allow third-party Alexa speakers to operate within the multi-room audio playback setup as well. The tools will be available to developers "early next year".

"We're thrilled to integrate Alexa multi-room audio with Samsung speakers", said Jun Young Kim, Vice President of AV Business Team, Samsung.

Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking.
