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.

This would be a brilliant feature - I would then buy more Echos!
Dennis P Harper commented
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

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.
With all the multi Device Homes you really need to open the multi room Api

It would be great to see you implement this as soon as possible. Thanks

PJ van Hanegem commented
With the increasing number of multi-speaker and multi-room options with the Echo devices, this certainly needs opened up to 3rd party skills.

" If music be the food of love....play.. " ... Errrrrmmm oh ! Wait !!!

This feature was added natively for the Amazon devices some time back; please provide this feature for your app developers! Speaking as someone with seven Echos, this would show great customer support. Thanks!
