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.

Yes, My Media...... Since the My Music at Amazon was discontinued, I need to be able to play my own music library on my Echo dots. I have 5 Dots, gen 2 & 3 mixed, and they are throughout my home, garage and patio.
I need to be able to use the Everywhere group.... PLEASE allow this!

Mulit-room and steroe pair support for third party audio skills are really essential
Multi Room and Stereo support for Echo devices is badly needed for My Media, etc. so customers can play digital music they bought on Amazon and Apple and from CDs they converted to AAC, mp3, and ALAC that they also bought on Amazon since 1990s or… before that, from record stores like Tower…

Since the removal of the ability to upload my own music to Amazon music it has become impossible to play some music I own on CD on my stereo pair of Echos. For an audio-centric device this seems crazy! This feature would at least allow me to play this music in stereo from the MyMedia skill.

There is always something to stop you from getting full satisfaction. I believed Echo universe would conquer all. But no.On Amazon Echos - Apple Music limited to US only. Deezer no personal playlist. Synology Audio Station and others external - no multiroom, no paired speakers. We are still under power of corporate FF&Cs (Fat Face and Cigar). They destroyed net music market, they destroyed net video market, now they are on the way to destroy personal assistant market.
Fine Amazon, just give us multiroom and paired speakers so maybe we will believe in you and Alexa.

I NEED this to replace my AirPlay devices!
Annabel Hurdman commented
This would be a brilliant feature - I would then buy more Echos!

Multi-room support and paired speaker stereo support for 3rd party skills such as My Media would be very useful. This would probably encourage my purchase of more Echo devices. Thank you.
Mark Carter commented
Would be a great feature !!!

Please make this available to third-party developers, doesn't make sense why it wasn't from the get-go! Thanks.

Joachim Rummler commented
As another person with 6 Echo's i feel this should be available to 3rd party developers as well, here my media after amzon music stopped! Should also be possible in Routines
Benny Buice commented

David Dow commented
I now have 4 echos and really want to use 3rd party apps, especially My Media with the everywhere group. Please make this happen !!!!!!!
Darren Presdee commented
Please implement... How hard could this be - its a quick win - and allows 3rd parties to develop apps & automatons that enhance the overall appeal of the Alexa devices and encourage multiple devices to be purchased for around the home - kerching Amazon - everyone is a winner (customer/3rd Party Developer/Amazon)!!!!

As another person with 7 Echo's i feel this should be available to 3rd party developers as well.
