Bring Multi-Room support to AudioPlayer API streaming
Alexa Multi Room streaming does not appear to be available for third party skills that leverage the AudioPlayer API.
Feature request is to extend support for Multi Room to the AudioPlayer interface. This could be implemented by adding a custom slot type for the multi room location and then adding an optional parameter to the Play() command to allow the destination room group to be specified.

Please add multi room support for 3rd party api, how do you want people to use you products if you stay closed ?
While I agree that multi room music groups should be available for skills, those complaining about the BBC skill should really ask the BBC why they can’t implement their stations as a streaming service like Globalplayer have for their stations which do support multi room. The BBC are really just passing the buck following their poor decision to withdraw from Tunein.

Need it, thanks

Please add the support for multi room streaming for 3rd party API's ASAP!
I have been an Amazon alexa fan from the beginning. I've endured the hiccups and the successes. I have literally over 1000 cds I've purchased over the decades. having an app that lets me leverage my own collection to play where-ever I like would be a great boon for Amazon.

Multi-room would encourage greater use of Alexa in many ways - so it would be great if it could be enabled ASAP

Please enable the API for my media for alexa. I have five echos across my home and I couldn't hear my personal music.

I have multiple echo devices being able to have 3rd party applications stream audio to all of them would be great when I am moving around and doing house work.

Please add Multi-room support to third party apps such as MyMedia. Multiroom is a large part of why I have any Echo speakers
Ricardo Dittmer commented
This would make life so much easier for me. Please allow it.

I have 14 Alexa devices, this would be very useful.
Doyle Niemann commented
Great idea. Really need it.

Amazon, this is a needed capability. Multi-room audio should have been a no-brainer. To impair 3rd party apps by not allowing this, you are hindering adoption of your products and frustrating your users.
Please add multi room support for 3rd party applications. if you want to dominant the market this is part of it !

I have 5 alexa compatible devices in my home and this would be a tremendous improvement

Please just add multi room/stereo paired capability to audio from BBC Sounds. I have a speaker group set up (2 x Echo Dots & an Echo Sub), I would like to hear audio from the BBC Sounds skill through my speaker group, not just one of the Echo Dots. Thanks.
