As of yesterday, if you have an Alexa-enabled device such as an Echo Dot and the BluOS Voice Skill from the Amazon Alexa app, you can use Alexa to select presets, play popular songs from music services, or group multiple players together and listen to the same track in different rooms. Alexa is available on all generations of Bluesound players.
How do you get your Bluesound player Alexa-enabled? Follow these six easy steps to get up and running...
Plug in your Bluesound Player and download the BluOS Controller app to connect the Player to your Wi-Fi. Download the most current version of BluOS if prompted.
Download and launch the Amazon Alexa app. Follow the directions in the Alexa app to set up your Alexa-enabled device, i.e. the Echo or Echo Dot.
In the Amazon Alexa app, search the skill library for BluOS and activate the voice skill.
With the skill added inside the Alexa app, launch the BluOS Controller app and open the left navigation drawer, select Music Services and select Amazon Alexa.
Set the Player name (this will change your Player name in BluOS as well) and then Login to your Amazon account.
You can now choose your default Player and set the room name by saying, "Alexa, ask Blue Voice to set the default Player to the [room name]".
