Especially changing the stream target from the app. Moving from mobile to Alexa to my sonos speakers follwing me through the house.

 

I have been using Spotify for 5 years now. This function has been there forever.i understand developing this takes resources but it seems this would be a very good argument for me to migrate over.

 

But tbh I have read several threads aged 2 years or older with lots of promises. So I assume this is not on any Roadmap.

Rudi has said several times that an improved Alexa skill set (hopefully to include personal playlist support) and a remote feature are coming soon.

I understand your skepticism, given the age of the threads discussing these matters, but deezer also has features and functions (songcatcher, Flow) that other streaming services do not.

My primary home sound system is made up of Amazon Echo Studio smart speakers and subwoofers, and I will say unequivocably that deezer, Apple Music, and Spotify function the most smoothly through that sound system. Which is saying a lot, given the number of streaming services available.

Spotify has been touting a hi-fi rollout since 2017. With the number of other streamers offering it, one would think that it would not be a difficult thing either, and yet here we are.

So I suppose it’s a matter of picking your poison

I am aware of Amazon Music having Alexa Cast, and Spotify having Spotify Connect, both of which permit use of their respective apps to control play on an Alexa device, but I am unaware of Apple Music being able to do that. Someone help me out here, I’d love to have that functionality with my Echo Studios.
