So far as I can tell, Ethernet-connected WiiM Pro devices cannot participate in multiroom, except via the Chromecast protocol (not an Amazon Music customer, so can't say whether AlexaCast works). Would be nice to be able to set up WiiM groups natively with those devices. Slim Devices figured out how to support it with their products ages ago. Can't believe it would be an intractable challenge for WiiM.
 
Well, I have my Pro on ethernet grouped with Mini on WiFi in WiiM Home app.

OK, now I see the error of my ways. Or rather, the error of WiiM's ways.

In the user manual, it says...

So on an individual device screen, there is no "+" symbol. Nor on the aggregate Device screen. But there is a “🔗” symbol on the latter. I was taking the manual at its word.

So @WiiM Team, if you see this, please consider providing more descriptive and accurate instructions for this. That's my feature request. :)
