How to connect more than one Bluetooth speakers to Echo Dot?

Connect more than one Bluetooth speakers to Echo Dot or other Echo devices to listen music or other types of audio seamlessly in multiple rooms at your home.

Amazon is dominating voice-controlled device industry with 70% of market share. The software and hardware capabilities of Echo devices are continuously improved. Alexa has already become a part of daily routines for many of us.

With the recent developments, Echo devices now can play an audio seamlessly. It means, you are able to continue listening the same song or podcast when you go to one from another in your home.

Here is the challenge: What if you have only one Echo device but you want to hear audio from more than one speakers? It is possible with a additional device called “Bluetooth transmitter”.

Here is what you need:

  • 1 Echo device (obviously)
  • More than 1 Bluetooth speakers
  • Bluetooth transmitter

Watch the video below for a quick demo.

  1. You might also mention that there is a noticeable “echo” when using a bluetooth transceiver or receiver. When using multiple bluetooth speakers in the same room, it sound like there’s a digital delay pedal attached to your Alexa; or, for those who aren’t musically inclined, it sounds like you are at the racetrack.

    Those who buy these receivers or transceivers for multiple speakers in the same room will not be happy with this setup at all.

  3. I can’t just connect two bluetooth speakers to the echo dot??
