Ocado's Alexa skill lets you call out your shopping list

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

For example. Amazon says that you could link up three Echo speakers with two AVS speakers to play music simultaneously across all five devices without issue.

Students (US only) will now be able to purchase a subscription to Music Unlimited for $4.99 per month; a $3 per month discount compared to regular Prime subscribers, and a 50% saving compared to members without a Prime membership. And be sure to name the group something easy to remember (like "upstairs"), since you'll use the group name to initiate a streaming session.

Amazon also plans to launch a new set of "tools for developers to bring multi-room music control to their speakers", according to the press release.

Sonos owners know that one of that speaker's killer features is the ability to stream audio throughout your house.




You can now synchronize your music playback across Echo devices to play songs from Amazon Music, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, and Pandora, with support for Spotify and SiriusXM coming soon.

Amazon on Tuesday debuted multi-room audio support for its Echo Internet-enabled speakers, consequently allowing users to play music on individual devices or group them together in an effort to create a surround experience.

Ocado will be the first supermarket in the United Kingdom to launch an app for Amazon Alexa that allows customers to order their groceries using their voice.

Customers in the US, UK, and Germany can start using multi-room music today on their Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show devices. You'll want to select the Echo devices you want to add to the group. It also steps on the toes of Sonos, which has focused on offering home-scale speaker systems which are all in sync with one another.
