How to Play Music on All Alexa Devices: A Step-by-Step Guide

Playing music on all your Alexa devices simultaneously is a pretty handy feature. You can fill your entire home with your favorite tunes for a party or just to set the mood. All you need is an Amazon Echo device and the Alexa app on your smartphone. Here’s a quick overview: you’ll create a group in the Alexa app, add your devices to the group, and then play music through that group. Simple, right? Let’s dive into the details.

Step by Step Tutorial: How to Play Music on All Alexa Devices

Before kicking off your home-wide concert, you need to set things up. We’ll walk through creating a group, adding devices, and finally, playing music through that group.

Step 1: Open the Alexa App and Access Settings

Open the Alexa app on your smartphone and tap on the ‘Devices’ tab at the bottom.

When you open the Alexa app, you’ll find several tabs at the bottom of the screen. The ‘Devices’ tab is where you manage all your Alexa-enabled devices. This is where the magic starts.

Step 2: Create an ‘Everywhere’ Group

Tap the ‘+’ symbol, then select ‘Set Up Multi-Room Music’ and create a group named ‘Everywhere.’

By creating an ‘Everywhere’ group, you’re telling Alexa that you want to play music on all your devices at once. You can name the group anything you like, but ‘Everywhere’ is straightforward and easy to remember.

Step 3: Add Your Devices to the Group

Select the devices you want to include in the ‘Everywhere’ group and then save your changes.

You’ll see a list of all your Alexa-enabled devices. You can pick and choose which ones you want to include. Maybe you don’t want the music to play in the baby’s room, for example. After you’ve selected your devices, make sure to save the group.

Step 4: Ask Alexa to Play Music Everywhere

Say, “Alexa, play [music choice] everywhere,” and enjoy the tunes throughout your home.

Now comes the fun part. Just ask Alexa to play your music on the ‘Everywhere’ group, and your selected devices will start playing the music in sync. It’s like having a house-wide sound system at your command.

After completing these steps, you’ll have a seamless music experience in every room with an Alexa device. Whether you’re throwing a party or just enjoying some background music, you can now control it all with a single command.

Tips: How to Play Music on All Alexa Devices

  • Make sure your devices are updated to the latest version to avoid any hiccups.
  • If you have multiple Echo devices, consider naming them by the room they’re in for easier identification.
  • The ‘Everywhere’ group will play music from your default music service, so set your favorite one in the Alexa app settings.
  • For better sync, try not to place devices too far apart from each other to prevent any lag.
  • Remember, you can always add or remove devices from the group if you change your setup.
