American multinational technology company Amazon has updated its voice-controlled virtual assistant Alexa in order to allow users to transfer their favorite music tracks, radio shows, or podcast episodes between multiple Echo devices.

According to the reports, the user will be able to ask Alexa to pause a song on one Echo device and restart it on another with the new version.

The feature to move music, radio, and podcasts is not limited to Echo speakers but also Echo Buds truly wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds, and Echo Auto hands-free in-car system. Further, Alexa has been updated to enable users to watch TikTok videos on their Fire TV devices.

According to the statement, “To move your audio between Echo devices, you can say “Alexa, pause” on the first device and then ask the voice assistant to play it on your other device by saying, “Alexa, resume music here.” You can also say “Alexa, resume podcast here” for moving your podcast playback, or “Alexa, resume radio here” to move your radio track.”

If you’re switching from an Echo speaker to Echo Buds, you can ask Alexa to relocate your music here by connecting them to your phone and saying, “Alexa, move my music here.” You can also say “Alexa, pause” to pause your music on your Echo device at home, and then “Alexa, resume music” to resume your music when using Echo Auto in your car.

Amazon has not provided any details on when the moving audio feature will be available for third-party Alexa devices.

Along with the feature to move music, Alexa has been improved to allow devices with screens, such as the Echo Show, to play the NFL pregame show Two-Minute drill.
