If you own an Alexa device, chances are you have more than one. If you use your devices to listen to music, chances are you can’t hear it when you leave the room — that’s just generally how rooms and sound work.
Alexa’s October update lets you move music from room to room so you can hear it wherever you go, finally providing a way to have seamless audio playback throughout your entire home.
There are a few different commands you can use to make this happen, it just depends on what you want to do.
The first command lets you move audio between groups, the smart speakers you’ve assigned to specific locations throughout your house. To do this, say “Alexa, move my music to [desired group].” You can move your podcast, radio show, or music to any room that has an Alexa device.
Another way to listen to your audio throughout your home is to pause it by saying, “Alexa, pause.” Then when you’re in another room with an Echo device, say “Alexa, resume music here.” The audio will continue where you are.
If you have a pair of Echo Buds, you can keep listening to audio when you leave the house. To transfer the audio to your earbuds when they’re connected to your phone, say “Alexa, move my music here.”
