DTS PLAY-FI ADDS ALEXA SKILLS TO YET MORE BRANDS
DTS has announced that DTS Play-Fi-enabled products are now available with Alexa functionality in France, Canada, Australia, Japan and India.
Works with Alexa allows you to control audio playback on an Alexa compatible DTS Play-Fi product from another room using an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show or other Alexa-enabled devices.
All you have to do is link your Amazon account to a compatible DTS Play-Fi product, and Alexa will know the speaker by name. Furthermore, this skill will enable you to use voice commands to ask Alexa to play a song in a specific room or a group of rooms that have been linked, adjust volume, skip the track forward, mute, pause, stop the music and more.
Once music has started playing from an Alexa command, the DTS Play-Fi app can then be used to add more products into the streaming session dynamically.
You can link other DTS Play-Fi-compatible speakers to your Works with Alexa certified DTS Play-Fi device, and use Alexa commands to the primary component to control playback across all connected devices.
New DTS Play-Fi products that have received the certification include:
- Anthem MRX 720 A/V receiver
- Anthem MRX 1120 A/V receiver
- MartinLogan Bravado speaker
- MartinLogan Cadence sound bar
- MartinLogan Crescendo X speaker
