I’ve discovered an issue after buying 2 echo plus’ to have stereo sound in my kitchen.
it was easy to set up on the Alexa app, but by enabling stereo pairing my music unlimited subscription won’t work, it thinks I needs a multi room subscription and refuses to play.
Surely this is a bug?
I’m playing 1 song in 1 room and streaming the left channel to the new echo (which I have to disable so it doesn’t respond to requests to the first echo - if you set a timer in the kitchen younhave no guarantee which echo will pick it up, and if you ask how long is left on the timer and the other echo responds, it will say that there isn’t one!)
So if I unpair the stereo, then my unlimited subscription works again. I’m stuck in the 1960s listen to mono.
Does anyone know a solution to this beyond paying to upgrade? Can’t believe Amazon meant to do this.
Just been on a very long chat with support about this issue. Was very hard to get them to understand that the stereo pair function was not multi room music etc. There is no change as of today, you need to upgrade to use amazon music and the stereo pair function which is just plain wrong, I pushed for the issue to go to the devlopers, hopefully someone on here can help push through a fix for this function otherwise it's a waste of time to have 2 devices in this setup.
I'd also like to see this updated. I've bought two speakers. I now OWN these speakers. I've also purchased many hundreds of pounds worth of music, legally, from iTunes and on CD. so, I OWN the music. Yet now I need to basically RENT the ability to use MY SPEAKERS in a multi-room or stereo configuration by giving Amazon £9.99 a month?? absolutely ridiculous!!
I should have bought a pair of Sonos speakers apparently... And downloaded my music illegally.....
