Multi-room playback on Alexa devices enabled on BBC Sounds

If you have Alexa-enabled smart speakers, you can now listen to BBC Sounds on multiple Alexa devices at once.

With a device group or speaker group set up in your Amazon Alexa app, you can use the group name when playing from the BBC Sounds skill, and the content will play on all devices in that group.

Other improvements made to the BBC Sounds experience on Alexa means there are now lots of things you can do with live radio on your Alexa-enabled devices. 

The BBC Sounds skill is the only Alexa service in the UK which lets you restart the live radio show you’re listening to.

Also unique to the BBC Sounds skill is the ability to rewind live radio, either to a specific time or by a certain amount of time.

You can also pause live radio and resume where you left off; and fast forward your rewound stream, plus you can now ask BBC Sounds for content which fits your mood or interests.
