As Apple and Sonos prepare to launch their own smart speakers, Amazon has added a new multi-touch music feature to its Echo devices. In a press release released today, Amazon announced an all-new Alexa feature "that lets you control and synchronize music across multiple Amazon Echo devices in your home." The new "Alexa, Play My Music Everywhere" voice command is available starting today.
Echo owners can now use the Alexa App to create playlists like "downstairs" then ask the intelligent personal assistant to play that playlist in the designated room. Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show owners can also play their created lists across multiple devices.
