When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

I've actually written 3 small Alexa apps so this is embarrassing. On my android tablet version of the app, I have two icons on the bottom, a house on the right and a graphic equalizer on the left. No "conversation icon" in the middle.

On my Android phone version, just downloaded from Amazon, there are no icons at the bottom.

Q#1 I'm assuming I get no conversation icon on the tablet because it has no calling capability. Am I right?

Q#2 Why do I have none of the icons (house, conversation balloon, or equalizer) on my phone. What am I missing?

#1 I also assume the same so I'm going with "right" :)
#2 Try going to the play store and see if the app gives you an "update" option
