1. A computer system comprising:
one or more processors; and
one or more memories storing computer-readable instructions that, upon execution by the one or more processors, cause the computer system to:
cause first audio data to be output by a first device associated with a user profile, the output of the first audio data resulting in first audio;
determine contextual data associated with the first device;
determine second audio data is to be output by a second device associated with the user profile;
based at least in part on the contextual data, select the second device, rather than the first device, for audio output with regard to the user profile;
cause the first audio to cease;
cause the second device to output second audio data resulting in second audio;
determine the first device is connected to a third device, wherein a first connection between the first device and the third device results in the first audio and wherein the first connection involves at least one first wireless communication;
discontinue the first connection between the first device and the third device; and
cause a second connection between the second device and the third device, wherein the second connection results in the second audio and wherein the second connection involves at least one second wireless communication.
