AudioPlayer crossfade between 2 audio files / streams.
It would be useful to be able to crossfade between 2 audio tracks or streams.
If Track A was playing, then the track finished (or user says, 'Alexa, next') and Track B was enqueued, an option should be available in the response to fade between the 2 tracks.
If Stream A is playing, and a user says 'Alexa, next' (or any other audio control), an option should be in the response to fade between Stream A and B.
This would enable greater quality soundscapes and immersion. It would be an excellent benefit to innovative experiences in voice formats.

I am looking at doing this also. Is there anyway to change the break between songs?
I agree, the background images on the screen based devices do an Alpha crossfade, So I believe the hardware can handle fading. I say video fades for loops need to be a feature and especially for audio! Don't forget the crossfade for similar audio, the fade curves need to be equal power, and for dissimilar audio they need to be equal gain linear (straight 45degree angle) curves. message me if you need details.
