Amazon Echos don’t have the most powerful speakers. But you can synch your Amazon Echo with any Bluetooth speaker to have your music play from both your Amazon Echo and your Bluetooth speaker to add some more volume or spread out sound to multiple rooms in your home.
The Amazon Echo is a speaker and smart home device that houses Alexa, Amazon’s voice-operated virtual assistant.
