Hi

In my living room I have one Google home nest mini and an Amazon echo device. I want to play some audio and use both of these together as a stereo speaker set.

I know how to do it for either nests or echos separately, my questions is if it possible to combine both of them as stereo.. Maybe via some 3rd party app?

I doubt if it's possible at all, given they are on two different platforms.
Even if they did, wouldn't that be an uneven pair of stereo speakers and hence counterproductive?

Even if it was possible there is a delay in multiple speakers on bluetooth. Just avoid it.
It works pretty well for the 2 Google nest minis.. One living room and another in bed room... Although have set them up as a group speaker and not stereo... So maybe there is a lag but the same lag for both of them helps it to be in sync?

You might not feel the lag in different rooms idk.

I have the following setup and haven't noticed any lag so far.
  1. Two MI Smart speakers in stereo mode. Both are in sync and no lag.
  2. Multiple Echo's (2nd Gen Echo, 2nd Gen Echo Dot, 3rd Gen Echo Dot, Echo Spot) all streaming simultaneously in group mode.
