DTS Play-Fi Devices Supporting “Works With Alexa” Now Feature Alexa-Preferred Speaker Functionality

Users can designate select DTS Play-Fi devices as the default music
playback speaker for their Alexa device; DTS Play-Fi’s “Works with
Alexa” compatibility expands to 37 devices and is now active globally

CALABASAS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DTS,
a global leader in high-definition audio solutions and a wholly owned
subsidiary of Xperi
Corporation
(Nasdaq: XPER) (“Xperi”), is pleased to announce that
consumers worldwide can now utilize DTS Play-Fi powered devices as their
Preferred Speaker for an Alexa Smart Home Group (SHG).

The new Preferred Speaker feature gives users the convenience of
selecting a specific DTS Play-Fi powered device in their home to become
the default music playback speaker for their Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Spot,
Echo Show or other Amazon Alexa device. Once a Preferred Speaker has
been designated in the Amazon Alexa App, the user no longer needs to
refer to the device’s name in order for music to play on the preferred
device. Voice commands as simple as “Alexa, play top-40” to a linked
Echo device will initiate playback on the associated DTS Play-Fi
speaker. This functionality is available today on all certified “Works
with Alexa” DTS Play-Fi products.

“We are excited to share this feature through the wide breadth of DTS
Play-Fi powered devices,” said Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi.
“With this new ability, customers worldwide now have a simpler way of
playing their music on their preferred speakers throughout their Alexa
smart home.”

In addition, “Works with Alexa” functionality is now available worldwide
on select DTS Play-Fi devices. Expanding beyond the previously announced
regions of the United States, United Kingdom and Germany, “Works with
Alexa” functionality through DTS Play-Fi is now available everywhere
Alexa is, including France, Canada, Australia, Japan, Italy, Spain,
Mexico and India.
