The MusicCast skill also offers enhanced control of MusicCast specific functions, such as room linking, multiple room control and playback of Favourites/Playlists. Commands are customised for MusicCast components, for example: “Alexa, ask MusicCast to link the Kitchen with the Living Room.“ If a MusicCast system uses an Echo or Dot as a source, users can request a specific artist, album or song. MusicCast will also allow owensr to redistribute a Bluetooth stream to multiple MusicCast products, for simultaneous playback.
