Alexa Announcements Now Rolling Out

Google has had a broadcast feature in Google Home for some time now, well today it sounds like Amazon Alexa Devicesare getting a similar feature called Alexa Announcements.

Saying “Alexa, broadcast (insert x message here)” will allow her to broadcast the message to all Amazon Alexa Devicesconnected to the account.

While I do not see myself using this feature very much I am excited as it seems like a step towards gaining the functionality to inject audio into Alexa based off of triggers from other connected device much like I can with Sonos Play 3 and my SmartThings setup.

What are your thoughts on Alexa Announcements? Let me know in the comments below.
