Like Google Nest audio products, two Amazon Alexa smart speakers can be linked together as a stereo pair! It’s a great way to easily upgrade the audio experience from just a single Amazon Echo device. Here’s how to do it!

How to Pair Two Amazon Echo Alexa Speakers

First, choose the two smart speakers you want to sync. The two speakers must be the same. So, if you have an Amazon Echo Dot, you must pair it with a second Echo Dot. It will not form a stereo pair with an Echo Plus. They also must be set up in the same room.
