Echo Technical Support / Programming Alexa
« Last post by Mhnalexa on November 16, 2018, 10:05:49 pm »
Yes I know that there is a Nest Skill, actually, there are a number of skills.
There is a skill I need that does not exist.
I ask
"Can I Program, add, Create, insert, NEW skills???"

If so, what is needed to do that???

While it appears to only keep the blue ring on longer, it actually allows you to ask followup questions without repeating the entire question.

For example, you can say, "Alexa, how old is Tom Hanks?" -- you'll get the answer from Alexa -- then you can say "Who is his wife?" and Alexa will know you're still talking about Tom Hanks.
Echo Technical Support / Wemos not seen by 1 of 4 Echos
« Last post by flowersrj on November 16, 2018, 02:02:59 pm »

I have 4 Echos in 4 different rooms and 3 Wemo mini plugs in 3 of the same 4 rooms.  I am able to ask Echo to turn on/off the Wemo plugs from only 3 of the Echos. The 4th Echo does not recognize them but works fine otherwise. In fact we use that Echo the most. The only difference is that it uses an external speaker, a soundbar but can't seem to find the 3 Wemos.  All of our Wemo rules work fine.

Any suggestions on what I can look for to get the 4th echo to see the Wemos.

Echo Technical Support / Contacts list not refreshing
« Last post by LHnTX on November 16, 2018, 12:37:08 pm »
I decided to by my elderly mother an Echo Spot.  I tried using my Echo spot to call her number on my contacts list to show her how it works, but Alexa had only uploaded an alternate phone number (no longer in service) into my contacts list and not the main contact number. Alexa would not allow me to edit the record, so I went into my iPhone contacts and removed the alternate number, but Alexa never refreshed the contact info. So I decide to switch the auto import option to "off" to remove all of my contacts, then turn it back to "on" to cause a refresh of the entire contacts lists from my iPhone. Alexa deleted all of the contacts except for my ex (go figure).  It has now been over 24 hours and I have opened the Alexa app multiple times, but the contacts list has never been refreshed.  I see no way to force Alexa to refresh the contacts list.
