How to Combine Amazon Speakers in the Alexa App

If you are working with only Amazon brand speakers, you can combine them within the Alexa app for Multi-room Music or to create surround sound.

  1. Open the Amazon Alexa App
  2. Select “Devices” in the lower right-hand corner of the app
  3. Then press the plus button in the upper right-hand corner of the app
  4. Select “Combine Speakers”

  • You can set up a home theater group to create surround sound for your Amazon Fire TV.
  • The final option is to create a Stereo Pair where you can pair two speakers within the same room to create a surround sound speaker pair for stereo music.

Once you select what type of speaker combo you want to make, all you have to do is follow the instructions in the app to select the speakers to combine and give the new group a name so that Alexa will recognize them in the future.
