Title: New Receiver
Post by: stevejsh on December 31, 2018, 12:42:50 pm
If I purchase a New Receiver that is WiFi and or Bluetooth capable, do I still need to physically connect my Echo Dot with a 3.5 cord OR can I then do it via WiFi or Bluetooth. The new Receiver will still be hardwired to the Ceiling Speakers that I have throughout our house and I will want Alexa to play music over these speakers.  Thank you
