How to make Alexa control any media app on Fire tablets, not just Amazon Music?

How do you make Alexa control the Music App of your choice – in my case H-Fi Cast.

I have Hi-Fi Cast installed on my new Fire 7. I don’t stream music from the internet, instead I have it loaded on my SD Card and stream to a Chromecast audio. This works really well.

However - There must be a way to interface Alexa with the app to do

  • At the very minimum.....
  • Volume up and down
  • Next or previous track
  • -Better still – voice choose album

But how?

Although Hi-Fi Cast is my chosen app, this is a generic question, whatever the media app.

Thanks
