Starting today, Amazon is finally adding a feature for Alexa-enabled devices that will let you group multiple speakers together so you can synchronize your music across various rooms.

There's also the minor limitation that synchronized music playback on Amazon Echo now works for songs playing from Amazon Music, TuneIn, iHeartRadio and Pandora, with support for Spotify and SiriusXM coming soon. If you have an Echo speaker, just access the Alexa App to group together two or more Echo speakers, then name the grouping.

As Apple and Sonos prepare to launch their own smart speakers, Amazon has added a new multi-touch music feature to its Echo devices.

Android Oreo Pixel launcher now available for all devices
This is why it still isn't clear when will some of the users be able to upgrade their phones to the Android 8.0 O update. As a result, the newly updated launcher can now be downloaded on more phones aside from the Google Pixel lineup.

Set-up is simple. You create a "Group" and include all the Echo devices you'd like included. 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. The $179 Amazon Echo is out of stock on Amazon right now, which could either be the result of a perfectly innocent sale, or a sign that Amazon has ditched stock ahead of a refresh. Amazon's new Connected Speaker APIs will allow other audio systems to be controlled by Alexa.

Along with the deal, Amazon's also offering up tips on how students can use Alexa's voice controls for music. The tools will be available to developers "early next year". Multi-room audio, that is. It seems like Amazon is going after that, by making the sound in the Echo better.

Multi-room audio is a pretty big addition for the Amazon Echo. "Soon, users will be able to play their favorite song, alter the volume, or change an input in any room where our connected products are placed, simply by asking Alexa to do so". "Listening to great music on Samsung speakers has never been easier". The APIs are now available in developer preview.
