How to Connect Amazon Echo’s Alexa to your Bluetooth Speaker


The speakers in Amazon Echos aren't the most powerful. However, you can pair your Amazon Echo with any Bluetooth speaker to have your music play from both your Amazon Echo and your Bluetooth speaker, allowing you to increase the volume or spread the sound across your home.

The Amazon Echo is a smart home speaker that houses Alexa, Amazon's voice-activated virtual assistant. Alexa can do everything from read the news to remind you of an appointment, and she can even play music from Spotify. Because the Echo isn't particularly loud, it's best to pair it with a Bluetooth speaker for the best listening experience.

How to pair Alexa with a Bluetooth speaker is explained below:

1. Ensure that your Bluetooth speaker is ready to pair.

Keep the button on your speaker that allows you to pair is pressed. Depending on your speaker, this will most likely be different.

2. Open the Alexa app on your phone.

3. At the bottom of the app, tap "Devices."

4. In the upper right-hand corner, select "Echo & Alexa."

5. From the list, choose the Echo you want to pair with your Bluetooth speaker.

6. Choose your Bluetooth devices.

7. Select "Pair A New Device".

8. Choose your Bluetooth speaker from the list.

To disconnect say "Alexa, disconnect from my speaker."

To reconnect, simply say "Alexa, connect to my speaker" after pairing your Bluetooth speaker with your Echo.
