A quick demo of some new features coming in alpha v0.2.1

 

 

We have new 'Next' and 'Previous' commands that can be used to skip back and forth through playlists.

Not only that, but for the elected device, these commands can be issued without invoking the skill at all. As long as the Squeeze Box skill (hab tunes skill in the demo) is the most recently invoked audio playback skill, simply saying 'Alexa, Next', is enough to skip to the next track on the currently selected player.

Plus, this version has experimental support for streaming LMS library content directly to through the echo itself. Right now, it kind of works, but there's some more work and a lot of testing to determine how stable it is and how viable it is for inclusion in the release version.
