Howdy. I have a Q800T. It is working on HDMI, and also working as an Alexa device. I can control it with my voice, and I can see it as a device in both the Samsung SmartThings and Amazon Alexa mobile apps.

I have a lot of Amazon Echo devices, and I use them as part of speaker groups to play multiroom audio (e.g. "Alexa, play Bob Dylan everywhere"). MY QUESTION: IS THERE A WAY FOR ME TO ADD THE Q800T TO AN ALEXA SPEAKER GROUP? It isn't showing up on a scan in HDMI, WiFi, or BT modes. Thanks!

I have the same issue and it's very frustrating! 

 

Can this be done?

I do not have any information on this feature for Alexa. I have forwarded the question to my engineers for investigation.

I am encountering this same issue, but with the q900t. Despite being integrated into alexa and being able to play music through the soundbar through the app, it is not an available addition to a multi room music group. Did you find an answer to this question? I have already reached out to Alexa support with no solutions found yet.

Same here with the Q950t - I'm going to charge out on a limb and say this isn't supported. Moreover, multi room is probably only supported on actual Echo devices, as it may very well be something in their firmware specifically that enables this functionality.

Any response would be great. Alexa integration was one of the main reasons I picked the HWQ800T vs the 70T... and it doesn't work!

Same here. Have a HW-Q70T and Alexa integration worked like a charm. But when I try to create a group for multi-room playback, the soundbar does not show as a speaker.
