Can Amazon echo dot be a media player?

is it possible to get the state of an Amazon Echo Dot in Home Assistant - i.e. what is currently playing?

In my scenario, I would query if an echo dot is playing as a sort of presence sensor.

the Nabu Casa voice assistant settings are more about exposing devices to the echo rather than getting the status of the echo.

There is a custom integration for this, alexa media player, it is using unofficial APIs to do that.
