This allows you to build a variety of immersive, wireless speaker configurations for your living room set-up, including 1.0 and 2.0 configurations and, for owners of Echo Sub, 1.1 and 2.1 configurations as well. You can also get Dolby audio if you have a second- or third-generation Echo or Echo Plus. It works with a bunch of Echo speakers and Fire TV devices.

A similar process must be followed on the Fire TV in order to manage the speaker system - head into Settings, then click Display & Sound - Home Theatre System.

It's worth bearing in mind that you'll only be able to watch content that's available on Fire TV; while numerous biggest streaming platforms are available, United Kingdom viewers won't be able to find Now TV, and U.S. viewers won't be able to stream on Walmart's Vudu, which is currently a large source of Dolby Vision content.

Confused? No worries. Here's what you need to know. The feature now supports the 1st and 2nd-gen Echo Plus, the Echo Dot with Clock, Echo Studio, the 2nd and 3rd-gen Echo, and the 3rd-gen Echo Dot.
