Amazon Echo as a speaker?

    Hello David,

    Unfortunately at this time there is no way to send the content from your Node 2i directly to your Amazon Echo over your network.

    Since the Node 2i is not close enough to your Amazon Echo to directly connect with a 3.5mm connection, the only alternative I can suggest would be to connect your Amazon Echo as "Bluetooth Headphones" in the BluOS app from your Node 2i. By doing this you will disable the connected outputs of your Node 2i and only have the audio from your Node 2i play to your Amazon Echo over Bluetooth.

    I can not say for certain if BluOS would be able to send audio directly to Amazon Echo in a future firmware update but I will pass this feedback along to our Quality Assurance team to investigate further. In the meantime I hope this work around helps!

    Thank you, Wesley. That is the workaround I've employed. One of our Echos is the portable Tap. So what you described is exactly what we do and then we carry it around with us.

    Obviously not ideal, but it suffices!

    Thank you for your response and thank you for forwarding this to your Quality team to see if it is feasible.
