Ok, so I can now get the app to see my local music and I even created a playlist inside the app on my phone but I can't get Alexa to play the playlist.

Any thoughts? I'm sure I"m just missing something really easy here.

Yes, you can unregister the device in your Alexa app, then your sister can register it in her account.

Echo Technical Support / Re: Can I control timers on 3rd party switches, lights
« Last post by Drwoodr on December 11, 2017, 09:28:59 pm »
I have several wemo switched and outlets, and you can set up a rule to turn off the device 5 minutes after itís turned on.  Then when you turn it on with Alexa, it will go off automatically. I have my outside spot lights go off after an hour automatically so I donít forget about them and leave them on all night.

There is no reason a, say wemo light switch, couldn't be controlled by a google mini in one room and an echo dot in another, right?

Thanks for the info.  But it's a gift for my sister...can she change the registration to her name?  Sorry for the noob questions.  I just got them a couple of hours ago.   :P

Wow that is incredible!  I am in Vancouver, BC and have to pick up my Prime orders in Lynden, Washington.  Two day delivery to Lynden and then I have to drive and get the order lol.

I ordered an Amazon Echo 2nd Gen and I set it up successfully.  In the setup I see my Echo AND an Echo Dot (shows offline).  The only thing I can think of is that I did order and received an Echo Dot (still in the box) which is a gift for my sister.  Is this why it shows up in my list of Echo devices?

Yes both will be registered to you.

Yep! You talked me into it! I just got one thru Amazon Prime Now. From order time to getting it in my hands: 1 hour 25 minutes. I wasn't expecting it that fast, so I was doing some gardening in the backyard. Then I got a phone call and it was a guy from Amazon saying he's at my front door. I walked around to the front and got my Echo Show.

A few hours later, here's my little demo video of the Echo Show.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Alexa on iPad and Missing Conversations Feature
« Last post by Rob007 on December 11, 2017, 07:30:16 pm »
It appears the Alexa app on the iPad lacks the Conversations (Drop In, Contacts, Calling, Messaging) capability. I have checked this on several iPads. The app on the iPhones appear to have these functions.

Why is this?

Thanks!
