Your announcements will go to each device i.e. Alexa announce "Dinner is ready".

Notifications like "package will arrive today" goes to all my devices.

I believe with alarms you would have to to click on each room's device to set up the alarm to go off on each device i.e. Ray's room and then set 7:30 alarm, Chloe's room and set 7:30 alarm.

You need to install hue sync. It's a desktop software. It works flawlessly on my PC.  It's also free.

Not just YouTube. Once you install it on your PC it sync to your pc background. So if you have fireplace screensaver I would assume it will also flicker like that.

Or if you have downloaded movie playing on your PC it will sync to the movie background.

So far I've only tried it on YouTube. But can't wait to try it on movie.

I called Amazon and they said echo and Firestick do not work together in Canada. But it shows up in the Alexa app. But it doesnt say online or offline.

You followed this guide?

Define "I cant do anything with it".

A specific app won't work, the remote doesn't work, a specific command won't work, what?

Amazon Echo Discussion / Whole house announcements?
« Last post by Yarrenbool on June 19, 2018, 12:09:19 am »

When setting up Reminders, Alarms, and Timers is it possible to have the notifications come from all the Echos in your house?

I have a defined Group that has my Echo Plus and my Echo in it called "Everywhere". Is there a verbal command to give Alexa to have a whole-house announcement which would presumably include the word "Everywhere". I've tried various combinations of "Alexa, set an alarm for 7 30 pm everywhere" type of thing but the announcement only comes from the device that heard my request.

I didn't think the echo worked with YouTube anymore.  Has this been changed?

Hi, I just got an echo and i am satisfy with it.  and it is hard for me to make it shut when there is a conversation that must be private. So it comes to me to make a device that can easily shut alexa from listening by saying "privacy".
i am making the project not to earn profit i just want to help everyone to gain there privacy in an easiest way. Just like the device did to me. And i just need a little help to make the project successful.  so just personally message me if want to know more about the project.

I am too excited to tell everyone how cool is it .

Definitely buy the color hue bulbs and be blown away by hue sync. I was mesmerized last night watching music vids on YouTube and  hue sync  really is in sync with background colors.

I really really like it.

No way around it. That's why people pay for them. I don't. I just change the channel.

I mean they do need to make money. So you either pay them monthly or deal with ads.

Such is capitalism.
