For those who don’t already know, Works with Alexa allows customers 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 device. Customers can link an Amazon account to a compatible DTS Play-Fi product and Alexa will ‘know’ the speaker by name. Customers can also use voice to ask Alexa to play a song in a specific room or a group of rooms that have been linked to adjust volume, skip a track forward, mute, pause, stop music and more.

Once audio has started playing from an Alexa command, the DTS Play-Fi app can be used to add more products into the streaming session. Customers can link other DTS Play-Fi-compatible speakers to their Works with Alexa certified DTS Play-Fi device, and use Alexa commands to the primary device to control playback across all connected devices.

DTS has also announced that DTS Play-Fi-enabled products featuring Works with Alexa functionality are now available in France, Canada, Australia, Japan and India, for those of our members who are outside North America.
