Echo Technical Support / Re: How to skip a re-occurring alarm without canceling?!

You can turn an alarm off temporarily in the Alexa app. I know not as elegant as asking her, and you do have to turn it back on later, but I do this with my spot.

I don't currently use my echo devices for alarms and I'm away from them for me to test it but look under settings.  What are the available options for repeats?

Echo Technical Support / How to skip a re-occurring alarm without canceling?!
« Last post by Fizz71 on February 23, 2018, 08:16:19 am »
I have re-occurring alarms every weekday morning (for work/school).  Some weekdays I know I don't need to get up and I just want to turn off the alarm for that one next occurrence.  I've tried a bunch of different commands but it always seems to cancel the whole alarm which means I then need to make sure I set it again later!

I just want Alexa to recognize that I only want to skip 1 day, and not cancel the whole thing.

I'm guessing that I'm just using the wrong words.

TIA

Yes I really think there's something wrong with Alexa...
I have to lower my voice, manly voice, for the Echo to listen to me :O
"Alexa?" <-- nothing
"ALEXA?" <-- blue ring and she's waiting for me

But if there is the TV on, or some music playing in the room, then nothing... Won't acknowledge my voice :(
It did before! Not anymore. Not after I unplug it to restart it...
Damn!

What do you guys think of this? https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/powerlounge-alexa-speaker-with-wireless-charger/
I've donated a bit personally and hope this project gets funded. I'm always looking to simplify and de-clutter my gadgets - combining three devices into one could really help me save desk space! I will definitely be keeping a close eye on this one!

if it's the newest, then likely it's the crippled version.

I can't help much but somewhere in the YT video description mentioned certain models can be flashed with older firmware to get it to work with RM Plugin. It's entirely your own risk as it can be bricked if flashed wrongly.
