When playing to an Alexa/Echo based Multi-Room Speaker Group, the only way to play is RP is via Tunein. I have the stream drop intermittently every 15-45 minutes when playing via Tunein to the Speaker Group, though the same thing does not happen when playing my Apple Music stream - it plays all day with no problem. The RP stream can be restarted via the Alexa browser-based controller by hitting the Pause button followed by the Play button. I do not have this issue playing to one Echo speaker via the RP Skill. 

Both speakers have been restarted and reconnected to the WiFi network and even the Group completely reconfigured, all with no change. Any thoughts? How long before you have your Alexa Skill reconfigured to support Multi-Room Groups (and whatever other enhancements are in the works)?
 

Unfortunately, getting our skill working with multi-speaker groups isn't likely to happen soon. 

Tunein is probably defaulting to our 320k stream. If you create a custom station in Tunein using our 128k AAC stream (which still sounds very good) you'll have better results. 128k AAC is what Apple Music is using.
