TALK TO BLUESOUND WITH VOICE SKILLS
Bluesound now supports voice control. With support for Amazon Alexa, you can ask Alexa to play saved playlists, select your favorite radio station, adjust volume levels, or even group Players together and play your music in perfect sync throughout the house.
WORKS WITH AMAZON ALEXA
Connecting Amazon’s Alexa voice service to Bluesound is easy with an Alexa-enabled device and the BluOS Voice Skill which gives you streamlined control over any BluOS enabled speaker, stereo or home theater system with simple voice commands. As you freely listen to music throughout the home, you can ask Alexa to change or pause a song, shuffle your favorite playlist, or simply ask what’s currently playing.
A music experience you can speak to.
Together, the BluOS skill and Echo devices respond to your voice and let you enjoy your music without always accessing the app, so quickly getting some tunes going and listening to curated playlists on Tidal and Deezer is as easy as “Alexa, ask Blue Voice…”.
One voice for everything.
As a skill integration, Bluesound can be voice controlled alongside a wide range of Alexa-enabled smart home products. Plus, the skill is powered by BluVoice which is the BluOS voice engine that controls all Bluesound Players--no matter which generation you have at home--bringing the latest tech to the speakers and systems that you love and continue to get better with every update.
Be heard with ease.
Alexa gives you easy, streamlined control over the music in your home so you can pause the music when the phone rings or ask what song is playing, all with your voice. Set up a default room and use quick and easy voice commands to control your music by starting with, “Alexa, ask Blue Voice…”
HOW TO SET-UP VOICE CONTROL WITH ALEXA
Plug in your Bluesound Player and download the BluOS Controller app to connect the Player to your Wi-Fi. Download the most current version of BluOS if prompted.
Download and launch the Amazon Alexa app. Follow the directions in the Alexa app to set up your Alexa-enabled device, i.e. the Echo or Echo Dot.
In the Amazon Alexa app, search the skill library for BluOS and activate the voice skill.
With the skill added inside the Alexa app, launch the BluOS Controller app and open the left navigation drawer, select Music Services and select Amazon Alexa.
Set the Player name (this will change your Player name in BluOS as well) and then Login to your Amazon account.
You can now choose your default Player and set the room name by saying, "Alexa, ask Blue Voice to set the default Player to the [room name]".
