So if the Mini could connect to a Bluetooth speaker I would have tried it. That's how the Dot in my bedroom is connected. The other Dots are all connected to very old office sized stereos, but I'm sure they won't last forever either especially since I had one in the bedroom died recently.

I hear ya.

If I want to get better answers, I just do the "OK Google" bit on my Android phone. So it's no big deal that Alexa is lacking in this area.

My Dots do Spotify for playlists, Pandora for stations, TuneIn for old-time radio/ local FM radio, and Audible for books.

So? If I never bought a gadget because what I have works, I wouldn't have many. And I need lots. I asked hubby if he would supply my gadget addiction after I retired. He said yes, but I don't know if he knew how serious it was. We have separate credit cards and separate checking accounts, but both of our names are on the checking account.
