If you have multiple Amazon devices in your home, you can use them all to play music at the same time. This feature is called Multi-Room Music and it allows you to fill your entire home with music. To set up Multi-Room Music you will need to create a Group in the Alexa app and then add all of the devices that you want to include in the group. Once your devices are added you can ask Alexa to play music on your chosen group of devices. For example, you could say “Alexa, play some classical music in the kitchen.”
