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.

Hi all this is my first post on this forum

My echo dot is fully running and all smart devices work like a charm.

Now i would like to add routines.
But unfortunately this option is not showing up in the menu.

With kind regards

WHICH menu exactly? PC or app & which O/S?

It shows up in my android app.

This is exactly the problem  :) routines is not in the option list. Not in the normal menu or in the account menu

Which country is your account set to?

I set mine to USA after getting tired of new stuff not showing up in German/UK accounts...

Of course I live in a non-Alexa country so I can switch countries as much as I like as I cannot use 'local' skills anyway ( :'(). But if that is an option, you could try switching... (Note: all skills that require account linking have to be linked again if you switch countries)
