Amazon has announced that its Fire TV Cube is getting Spotify Multi-Room support, meaning you'll be able to make it a part of your existing speaker group.

The update, which is rolling out right now, means any television, soundbar or other AV equipment you have your Fire TV plugged into can be part of a Spotify group with other Alexa speakers.

You could already do this with Amazon Music, Pandora and iHeartRadio, but until now Spotify has been a no-no. Once your Fire TV is in a group, it also means you can ask Alexa to start playing music. If Spotify is set as your default streaming service, you can just say, "Alexa, play my morning playlist in living room".

To add it to your multi-room group, go to Devices in the Alexa app, select the speaker group you want to add it to, choose the Fire TV Cube and then hit Save.

Amazon says it's possible you might experience some lag when using the Cube with other speakers. If you do, press the menu button on your Fire TV Cube remote and adjust the slider until the Cube gets in rhythm.

It's good to see Spotify getting more support from platforms like Alexa. Apple is also rumored to be adding Spotify playback with Siri on the HomePod.
