Amazon today revealed Alexa Cast, a new feature that simplifies the experience of interacting with Alexa-powered devices. Alexa Cast specifically targets the action of casting music from a mobile phone to an Alexa speaker. At launch, it is only compatible with Amazon's own Amazon Music app for controlling music playback. The feature works with all Alexa-enabled devices, including those made by Amazon and those made by third-party companies. The new feature is coming to the Amazon Music app for Android and iOS starting today, which will contain an icon for Alexa Cast on the Now Playing screen. What users see on the app will be in sync with what's playing through the speakers, so they can manage playback in real-time. Third-party apps cannot yet access the new Alexa Cast feature and Amazon hasn't said if or when Alexa Cast might reach more of its own apps.
