Amazon updated its Echo devices a couple of months ago with support for multiroom audio. The feature enables these devices to handle music playback across multiple rooms. Echo users can thus sync music across their devices. Spotify, the world’s most popular music streaming service, wasn’t supported by this feature at launch but that has finally changed today.
Initially, the multiroom audio feature of Amazon’s Echo devices supported services like Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and Pandora. The company did say back then that it would add support for Spotify and SiriusXM in the near future.
Amazon also launched new developer tools for speaker manufacturers who want to make their devices compatible with this feature. The much-awaited feature was very well received by many Echo owners.
Amazon has confirmed today that the multiroom audio feature of its Echo devices now works with both Spotify and SiriusXM. Users will now be able to stream music from these services to multiple Echo speakers in their home very easily.
The former is available to users in the United States, Germany, United Kingdom, Ireland, and Canada. The support is likely going to be expanded to other markets down the road. SiriusXM support is only available to Echo owners in the U.S.
