This is something not possible with the $3.99 Echo option should you have multiple devices you want to play music on.? If you have a family who wants to keep their own playlists and you don’t want them competing with your devices currently playing music then go with the $14.99/$149 plan so you can have separate accounts for up to 6 people and control the music you want to stream on each separate account!?
