Plans for casting to Echo/Alexa? [#15517]

I see that we can cast MM5 to Google Home devices. Are there any plans to add the ability to cast to Echo devices? Sorry if this was asked before. I searched, but didn't find any reference to this.

Hi,
When you try to cast in MM5 what do you get? Any other app that can cast to Echo/Alexa?

When I hit cast, I only see my Google Home mini. Obviously, Spotify allows for casting to my echo. That's the only other music service that I use. I just wondered why my Google Home mini shows, but not the Echo.

Obviously because Echo uses the "Alexa Cast" protocol (that is not supported by MM), while Google Home uses "Google Cast" protocol.
