How to Host The Perfect Party with Your SONOS Speaker
In the midst of the holiday season, you may be caught up in the planning of parties and gathering with dear friends and family. In light of our recent release of the Sonos Move, and our partnership with Amazon, we’ve got a few rockin’ tips on using Alexa and Move together, to be a more efficient party planner.
Use Alexa for party prep There are several ways that SONOS Move products powered by Alexa can be leveraged for planning your next party, whether we're talking about a groovy dance party or a more intimate dinner party with dear family and friends. It all starts with your party planning. Never fear, Alexa is here. You can create a shopping list and start adding items to it with the ease of just your voice. Simply ask Alexa to start a shopping list and it will prompt you to start listing out items. This list will appear in the Alexa app so that you can pull it up on your mobile device when you're out and about with your errands. Another thing you'll want to set up before your guests arrive is linking any Move speakers you have in your home for multi-room music. Or give each room a unique atmosphere with its own respective playlist. The value of having Move speakers in different rooms will also come in handy with the broadcast feature that lets you play a message over all your Move speakers, aka an effortless system for announcing when food is ready!
Use Alexa as your DJ SONOS supports an immense variety of music and streaming sources, so whether you use YouTube Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, or Amazon's own music service, you'll be able to play the perfect music for your party. SONOS Move speakers are perfect for delivering festive music, whether you want it blasting loud and proud for a fun dance party or nice and chill in the background during dinner. With Alexa, you can also pause, skip, control the volume, or change the music at your discretion using just your voice. No matter which music subscription service you use, you will have access to an incredible library of pre-made playlists for any party, along with the option to create your own playlists as you go. Spotify has a wide array of user-curated playlists on hand to choose from. As they say, don’t work harder, work smarter. Stay connected with SONOS and Alexa at your next event, and party harder in your smart home.
