Smart TV as additional speaker
« on: December 27, 2016, 08:40:11 pm »
Hey Guys,
New to Echo and new to the forum, apologies straight up if this has been covered, I have looked and cant see the answer in any other post.
Having bought an echo for my parents for Christmas, i was so impressed during set up that Ive bought one for myself, along with a host of accompanying gadgets included a dot, a firestick, a phillips hue starter kit and 2 bose touch 10 speakers, hoping to spread the Alexa loveliness around my home.
I am having a New Years eve party and want to have the playlists ive made heard throughout the house.
My question is, by hooking my echo up to my smart TV & Firestick, will i be able to use this TV purely as an additional speaker for the music playing from my echo (using my free 1month amazon unlimited account for now).
This would create a multi-room setup with music being sent to to the following rooms:

Room 1
- Echo
- Bose Touch 10 Bluetooth Speaker

Room 2
- Dot
- Bose Touch 10 Bluetooth Speaker

Room 3
- Samsung Smart TV

As you can see, it would be a huge benefit to be able to use the TV as an additional speaker, gaining an extra room in which music will be heard. Any advice would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks

Your Fire stick can play Amazon music, playlists etc.  Check out the Music tab on the main left-side menu.  You can also control the Fire stick via voice, even an older stick if you install the Amazon Fire TV app on a mobile device.
