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.

Newbie beginners question
« on: January 20, 2018, 09:35:54 am »
Hello new here and to alexa,

we have an echo and echo dot in the bedroom, I'm trying to set up the multi room music feature I've made a group using the standard everywhere title for the 2 devices but getting alexa to understand "play group everywhere" seems ridiculously difficult one minute she'll do it the next she's looking for a station for a group (presumably) called everywhere or similar, on the same note does it matter which device we command to then play the playlist or chosen music from?

Thanks in advance, many other questions to follow I'm sure, John..

Like just now for eg, the missis did a usual woman thing and unplugged the dot not while the echo is playing I cannot get them to play on the group?

This seems pretty complicated to achieve when it feels as tho it should be a lot easier and simpler process..

Not trying to be rude, but making your posts easier to read might help with getting answers... IE, use more punctuation, shorter sentences and more to the point.

I for one can't quite follow them  :o
My Alexa stuff:
Echo Show, Echo Spot, 4 Echo Dots, Fire TV, Fire tablet,
Vobot Alarmclock, Logitech Harmony Hub, house full of Hue lights,
Ring 1+2 doorbells, Tado smart thermostat, Plex server.

I can't make out what you are trying to font.  Suggest that you read the support solutions:  Dot Help.
Call tech support:  Phone
Dial 1-877-375-9365 or 1-206-922-0197.


Look at the top of this forum area & look for the "stickie" Amazon Echo Customer Support & do the necessary.


GOOD LUCK!

I write as a "Computerate" 94 year old who has recently fallen for the joys of Echo Dot but is also frustrated at my inability to get it to do what I want !

I have lots of Kindle books that Echo Dot reads with no problem other than it won't go to any specific chapter.

I can go to the next or previous chapter with no problem.

What I can't do, is go to a chapter of my choice

Any help please ?

Many thanks !
