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.

Kindof given up on this now.

It was supposed to be "imminent" when the UK press were talking about it back in March.

8 months later and I suppose that its just never going to be released outside of the USA.

Absolutely no reason why not.... but hey.


look at that!! the next day it appears.  typical lol

While it appears to only keep the blue ring on longer, it actually allows you to ask followup questions without repeating the entire question.

For example, you can say, "Alexa, how old is Tom Hanks?" -- you'll get the answer from Alexa -- then you can say "Who is his wife?" and Alexa will know you're still talking about Tom Hanks.

...ok guys....i am preparing myself to be excited....but how do i select it??

Have new Dot 3 and if you wade through all the options and find reference to it - it says'more about follow up' you press that and it then says select a certain Symbol - Cant see it anywhere!
Can somebody help plse as really want this feature -hhhhate continuous use of wake word and love idea of dynamic conversational memory :)

Yes I am in Uk and followed PC App accordingly - could somebody take a look at PC app and see if different from smartphone app (which i dont have) or tell me what i am doing wrong

I loaded PC App from the amazon alexa co UK site - are you using the ,COM site?

cheers

If your Echo device supports follow-up mode, here's how to enable it. Before you start, make sure you have the latest version of the Alexa app. Check your phone's app store to see if there's an update.

From the Alexa app on your phone, tap the menu icon at the top/left corner (it looks like 3 horizontal bars). Then tap Settings. And tap Device Settings. All of your Echo devices and smart devices will be listed. Choose one of your Echo devices. Then you'll see all the settings you can change on that Echo device. It should look like the picture below. If yours doesn't look like this picture, it probably means that Amazon has not enabled the follow-up mode for your region/country.

the UK PC app is nothing like that - however it does prompt you to select a symbol that doesnt seem to exist to start the feature which is described

very frustrating

as to latest app - there appears to be just a default app under alaexa.amazon.co.uk

It looks like you're using the Alexa website rather than the mobile app which is what those instructions are for. To change device settings in the web site you need to:

  • Click on Settings in the left sidebar
  • Click on the Echo device in the list of devices at the top of the page

The Follow-Up Mode option should be just below the Wake Word option on that page.

sorry  but you guys are missing the problem - yes the follow on is listed where you say, but wont highlight for toggle selection - the only availability is 'learn more' which tells you to presss an icon that doesnt exist!!

my new dot3 sw is 1577509252
