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!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Good afternoon. The functionality of adding your sound bar to an Alexa speaker group is not currently supported. This suggestion has been forwarded to our engineers, but I have no information as to when this might be added, or if it even can be added.
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.
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.
